Judge rips Colorado AG’s case against foreclosure giant as “groundless and frivolous,” orders state to pay attorneys’ fees

Denver Post-

The Colorado attorney general’s office was so haphazard and reckless in its failed pursuit to prove former foreclosure king Larry Castle and his law firm had defrauded thousands of consumers that a judge has ordered it to pay his attorneys’ tab – an amount that easily could toll into the millions of dollars.

Denver District Judge Morris Hoffman on Tuesday said Attorney General Cynthia Coffman “was wrong to bring and pursue most of this case” against Castle, his former law firm, The Castle Law Group, and two other associated businesses caught up in the investigation. He said the civil lawsuit the state filed was “substantially groundless and substantially frivolous” enough to merit the award of the defendants’ attorneys’ fees.

“The evidence, or lack of evidence, at trial was nothing short of breathtaking, especially compared to the investigative build-up and the serious and pervasive allegations in the complaint,” Hoffman wrote in a far-ranging, 20-page opinion. “The case (the state) put on wasn’t even a sick relative of the robust allegations they made. … Their 40-page, 217-paragraph complaint reads more like a press release than a complaint.”
