Foreclosure Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Zigadto, Janet


AC43704 - Ocwen Loan Servicing, LLC v. Sheldon ("In this foreclosure action, the substitute plaintiff, PHH Mortgage Corporation, appeals from the judgment of the trial court rendered in favor of the defendants, Sandra A. Sheldon and James J. Sheldon. On appeal, the substitute plaintiff claims that, in concluding that the defendants prevailed on their special defense of unclean hands, the court (1) made a clearly erroneous factual finding that a predecessor of the substitute plaintiff failed to 'restore' the defendants' credit following its own error, and (2) improperly determined that the balancing of the equities prevented foreclosure. We disagree and, accordingly, affirm the judgment of the trial court.")
