In a 53-page decision following a 3-day trial, a South Carolina Master in Equity has denied the remedy of foreclosure to U.S. Bank as a claimed securitization trustee. The litigation was ongoing for 12 years, and the Plaintiff took inconsistent position that the Note existed, then claimed it was lost, later claiming it was found. The ruling details the myriad failures of the Plaintiff as to lack of evidence, evidence which was not credible, and a litany of misconduct on the part of the Plaintiff throughout the history of the case.

Jeff Barnes, Esq. represented the homeowner for practically the entire 12-year history of the case and tried the case with local South Carolina counsel William “Bill” Sloan, Esq.
