Galloway St. Louis Office Successfully Defends Positive Precedent In Illinois for Mortgage Lenders

Representing a national lender in the Chicago “collar counties”, Scott Mueller and Anne Kelly previously obtained the dismissal of an action to set aside a decade old foreclosure due to a technicality on the face of the summons in the Illinois foreclosure action. This helped distinguish negative precedent in Illinois for mortgage lenders. The well-known plaintiff’s attorney filed an appeal and repeatedly requested the Appellate Court for permission to delay filing deadlines. Galloway’s attorneys filed a substantive and procedurally formal opposition, granted in part, which caused the appellant’s attorney to abandon the appeal altogether, and leading to a positive precedent in favor of the client and similarly situated lenders.
