BLF obtained a summary judgment on plaintiff's claim that the client's failure to mark his mortgages satisfied entitled him to a seven-figure damages award.
The district court ruled that the plaintiff was estopped from pursuing his claim since he had failed to identify it in serial bankruptcy filings; and also that the statute of limitations barred the claim. On appeal, the Third Circuit affirmed on the limitations ground. Estate of Ortlieb v. Hudson United Bank, 128 Fed. Appx. 214 (3d Cir. 2005).
