Wahba, appeals from the judgment of the trial court rendered in favor of the defendant, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., after a jury trial on the plaintiff's complaint and a court trial on the defendant's counterclaim. On appeal, the plaintiff claims that the court improperly (1) granted the defendant’s March 15, 2017 motion in limine precluding evidence regarding a 2008 modification agreement (March 15 motion in limine), (2) granted the defendant’s March 16, 2017 motion in limine precluding evidence regarding government regulatory action taken against the defendant (March 16 motion in limine), and (3) denied the plaintiff’s request to amend her complaint.We dismiss the plaintiff’s first claim as moot because the plaintiff has not challenged both of the trial court’s bases for its evidentiary ruling.With regard to the plaintiff’s remaining claims, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.")
