Sims v. New Penn Financial LLC | 7th Cir. Rejects ECOA Claim Based on Vague Statement by Defendant’s Employee

THE CFS BLOG-

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit held that the plaintiffs failed to prove a violation of the federal Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA) under a disparate treatment theory where their only evidence was a vague statement from one of the defendant’s employees.

Accordingly, the Seventh Circuit affirmed the ruling of the trial court granting summary judgment in favor of the defendant.

A copy of the opinion in Mario Sims v. New Penn Financial LLC is available at:  Link to Opinion.

The plaintiffs, an African-American couple, purchased a home from the seller in October 2008 for $185,000.  The plaintiffs made a down payment of $12,000, and monthly payments of $1,400 to the seller for about one year.
