Jury Awards Vienna Man $2.6 Million in Case against Ocwen Loan Servicing
May 25 16
A federal jury in Beckley on May 23, 2016 awarded $2.6 million in punitive damages to a Vienna man who sued a mortgage loan company for refusing to investigate issues he raised about his credit report. Ocwen Loan Servicing LLC willfully violated the Fair Credit and Reporting Act, a jury found after a six-day trial. The act requires that any company that reports information is required to investigate all disputes. David Daugherty filed multiple disputes with Ocwen after receiving a credit report that showed he was behind on his mortgage payment. He had requested the report after being turned down for a loan, said one of his attorneys, Jed Robert Nolan, of Hamilton, Burgess, Young & Pollard. Ocwen argued that Daugherty had other negative accounts and, because of that, would have been denied the loan anyway. The company also claimed that it did conduct an investigation at Daugherty's request and that it was sufficient. Daugherty's attorneys argued that the company's investigation consisted of checking basic information about the customer, like their Social Security number. Daugherty and Equifax Information Services reached a confidential settlement agreement before the case went to trial. The six jurors also awarded Daugherty $6,000 in compensatory damages.
