Class Action Suit Against Wells Fargo for Freezing Accounts in Every Case

On January 21, 2011 Christopher P. Burke, Esq. and Scott C. Borison, Esq. attorneys for Eric Mwangi and Pauline Mwicharo [Plaintiffs] filed case no. 11-01022-bam in U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District Court of Nevada this Adversary, a class action.

Thanks to Christine Wilton for this news.  I will check the docket and update shortly.

Well, I’ve checked the docket.  Pretty interesting.  The case was before Judge Bruce Markell.  The complaint asked for $5 billion (with a “b”) in damages.  WFB filed two Motions to Dismiss, the second of which was granted with prejudice in September, 2011.  The debtors appealed to the BAP.  WFB transferred to district court (shocker there) since the BAP ruled that Wells violated stay.  The parties are waiting for the district court to rule.  Email for counsel for the debtor is
