M&G Has Continued Success in Residential Mortgage Foreclosure Matter
McCorry & Gannon has again successfully argued a case before The United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. The Court ruled in Grapentine vs. Pawtucket Credit Union, 755 F.3d 29 (1st Cir. 2014), that the Plaintiff/Appellant's matter was properly dismissed by the Federal District Court for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. The Court further held that foreclosures pursuant to Rhode Island statutory power of sale are not statutory, but contractual, and adherence to State law does not give rise to a civil rights action under 42 U.S.C. §1983.
