On behalf of a class of consumers who were charged illegal fees just for paying their mortgages over the phone, Bailey & Glasser, LLP won a significant summary judgment victory in a class action before a federal district court in Houston, Texas.
The lawsuit against Lakeview Loan Servicing and LoanCare alleges that they charged FHA mortgage borrowers illegal “Pay-to-Pay” fees, extra charges up to $12 for processing monthly payments by phone. Bailey Glasser partners James Kauffman and Elizabeth Ryan were lead counsel in this case.
“This case is a big win for American consumers who struggle enough without being nickel-and-dimed by illegal junk fees,” said lead counsel James Kauffman. “These kinds of fees are unlawful, and we will continue to fight across the country to protect consumers from companies taking advantage of them.”
Other members of the Bailey Glasser team consisted of Contingency Practice Area Leader Jonathan Marshall, Consumer Litigation Practice Group Leader Patricia Kipnis, attorney Denali Hedrick, and paralegals Mary McClay and Vanessa Pierre.
