Dothan Lawyer Aaron Gartlan of the Gartlan Injury Law has entered an appearance in a law suit with a jury demand against Citimortgage in the Dale County Circuit Court on behalf of a husband and wife from Ozark Alabama.

The law suit alleges negligence, wantonness, willfulness, wrongful foreclosure, slander of title, trespass, misrepresentation, fraud, outrageous misconduct, violations of deceptive trade practices and other federal laws, breach of contract related to a Home Modification Loan with Citimortgage in an effort to make sure the husband and wife are fairly and fully compensated for their injuries and seeks compensatory and punitive damages as well as injunctive relief and a rescission of the foreclosure.

The basic factual contentions of the law suit are that the husband lost his job and contacted Citimortgage to notify them in an effort to make arrangements regarding the mortgage before it was in arrears. He was told by Citimortgage that a Home Modification Loan would be a way help ease some of the financial burden once he was three months behind on the mortgage.

Therefore, the husband decided to apply for a Home Modification Loan and did not make his mortgage payment for three months. During this time, he was assured by Citimortgage that everything was fine with his application and that the Home Modification Loan will lower the mortgage payment.

However, Citimortgage foreclosed on their home after the husband did not make the mortgage payments, as he was encouraged to do by Citimortgage and even though he applied and had been approved for and had been making payments pursuant to the Home Modification Loan as suggested by Citimortgage and told that everything was fine by Citimortgage.
