Case Number: 2020-001556

In Consumer Fraud

Client’s home was titled to her mother in law but was paid for by client and husband who are divorcing (that case has an attorney).  The family court judge said the issue of the home needed to be decided in a civil case.  It appears from the recorder’s records that her divorce attorney recorded a notice of lis pendens on the house.  In December 2019, it appears the mother-in-law sold the home despite the lis pendens. On January 8, 2020, the mother-in-law filed a quiet title action in district court, naming client as a defendant.  More recently, the mother-in-law filed a motion to expunge client’s notice of lis pendens (to clear the title and vest ownership solely in the mother-in-law).  A hearing is set on the motion to expunge on March 30, 2020, in front of District Court Judge Richard Scotti. To date, no answer has been filed on client’s behalf and no opposition has been filed to the motion.
