Significant Published Decisions

From representing clients against big banks and property owners to protecting clients against mortgage companies to help save their homes, Consumer Legal Group, P.C.’s appellate work has become a trusted partner for many individuals.

Our major cases include:

  • Deutsche Bank Nat’l Trust Co. v. Gilbert, 2012 IL App(2d) 120164 (2012) – We represented the borrower in a mortgage foreclosure action where Deutsche Bank claimed to be an assignee of the loan. During the litigation, Deutsche Bank provided a copy of an assignment dated after the filing of the case. We offered the defense that Deutsche Bank did not have the standing to foreclose. Initially, the court granted Deutsche Bank a foreclosure but we filed an appeal to the Illinois Appellate Court, which agreed with us that the post-dated assignment evidence Deutsche Bank did not have standing. The appellate court then dismissed the foreclosure case. This appears to be the first decision in Illinois where a reviewing court has held that a mortgage foreclosure action is subject to dismissal if the plaintiff has failed to obtain an assignment before the filing of its foreclosure action.
  • Davis, et al. v. Dyson, et al., 387 Ill. App. 3d 676 (1st Dist. 2008) - We represented a group of condominium owners where a board of managers mismanaged the association, including failing to supervise the on-site property manager who stole more than $500,000 from the association's checking accounts. The complaint sought relief against the ten members of the board in a derivative action on behalf of the association and on a class action basis, where all owners of condominiums were members of the class. On appeal, the appellate court reversed finding that the condominium owners were allowed to bring a derivative action on behalf of the association.
  • Central Mortgage Co. v. Bush, 2014 IL App(3d) 121041-U - We represented a borrower in a mortgage foreclosure action in Will County, Illinois. The homeowner sought to cancel his home mortgages under the federal Truth In Lending Act. However, the court refused to allow the borrower to file his case against the mortgage company. On appeal, the appellate court reversed finding that the trial judge abused his discretion and required the trial judge to permit the homeowner to file his claim seeking to cancel the loans.
  • Deutsche Bank v. Hall-Pilate, et al., 2011 IL App(1st) 102632 - We represented homeowners in a mortgage foreclosure action who were never served with a summons. Before retaining our services, the clients were represented by another attorney who never contested that the homeowners were not properly served. The trial judge found that the homeowner's waived any right to object as a result of the prior attorney's actions. On appeal, we vehemently argued that a party's failure to object to service of a summons cannot waive their objection to orders entered before the homeowner appeared in court. Our position, in this case, was recently vindicated by the Illinois Supreme Court, which ruled that a homeowner may continue to contest jurisdiction even after appearing in a case.
