Judge advances suit over botched mortgage modifications

Chicago Tribune-

A Yorkville homeowner’s lawsuit alleging that her lender botched her efforts to modify her mortgage will be allowed to proceed and seek class-action status, a federal court judge ruled this week.

The Monday ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Sharon Johnson Coleman, denying OneWest Bank’s motion to dismiss the case filed by Stacey Fletcher, shows that the door has been opened to homeowners and former homeowners who believe their lenders mishandled applications for participation in the government’s loan modification programs, according to Steven Woodrow, one of Fletcher’s attorneys.

“It really helps the people who are really being strung along,” Woodrow said. “That person may be able to sue the bank for breach of contract.”
