Whitley Case 607 F Supp 2d 885 Denial of Motion to Dismiss

Whitley 3rd amended Complaint

Whitley order on mtd Taylor Bean

Thanks everyone for sending me the full text OF THE OPINION.  VERY IMPORTANT CASE. Appraisal fraud, negligence, fiduciary duty, traced up to Taylor Bean. The reasoning in the opinion is at treatise-level. This Illinois Case and the cases it cites opens the door for traveling upstream in the securitization chain to recover all undsiclosed, hidden profits. It also contains some cautionary findings about alleging fraud against a group of defendants, about tolling, and other pertinent topics.

No. 08 C 3114.
