MOUNDSVILLE – A Marshall County man has filed suit against a financial institution after his home was sold at a foreclosure sale.
Jeremy Gump filed a complaint on June 27 in Marshall Circuit Court against JP Morgan Chase Bank alleging breach of contract and bad faith and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff obtained a mortgage loan from the defendant in 2008 and fell behind on payments in 2016.
He alleges he contacted the defendant for a loan modification and was instructed not to make payments while the loan modification was in process.
The suit states the home was sold at a foreclosure sale in April and the plaintiff was not aware of it until May.
The plaintiff holds JP Morgan Chase Bank responsible because the defendant allegedly made misrepresentations in collecting on the debt.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages, equitable relief, interest, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by James G. Bordas Jr. and Jason E. Causey of Bordas & Bordas PLLC in Wheeling. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge David W. Hummel Jr.
