Jury Verdict for Bank – Fraudulent Lending and Wrongful Foreclosure
Joe Kingma won a defense verdict for a Georgia bank sued for fraudulent lending and wrongful foreclosure on June 12, 2008. The plaintiff proved: he had diabetes; he had his eyes operated on a less than a month prior to the loan closing; he was driven to the loan closing by someone else; and that the bank loan committee had approved the larger loan he said he should have gotten. The bank had foreclosed on a family farm that had been in the plaintiff’s family for several generations. Joe was successful in convincing the jury that the bank officers, and not the foreclosed borrower, were truthful.
