PBI Bank Inc. Reaches Settlement over Fraud Lawsuit

PBI Bank Inc., a unit of Porter Bancorp Inc., reached a settlement in the lawsuit filed by Signature Point Condominiums LLC, Signature Point Apartments LLC and Signature point KTC LLC, with the bank not admitting any liability. In December 2016, the Kentucky Court of Appeals affirmed a $7 million restitution ruling against PBI Bank related to the complaint which accused the bank of committing fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, negligence and conspiracy, among others filed by the three real estate developers in 2010.

Appeals Court Upholds Verdict Against PBI Bank

The Kentucky Court of Appeals has upheld the $7.1 million verdict in favor of the Signature Point development and its partners and against a lender, PBI Bank. The judgment was in favor of Signature Point Condominiums LLC, Signature Point Apartments LLC, and Signature Point KTC LLC against PBI Bank, Inc. after a Jefferson Circuit Court jury found the bank liable for fraud, negligence and breach of contract, among other findings. The claims arose out of property acquired in 2006 by Scott Hagan, to create an upscale residential development that included condominiums, apartments and a clubhouse in eastern Louisville Metro. Hagan bought about 90 acres on English Station Road, planning to construct the development. U.S. Bank originally provided the financing for the purchase, but PBI took over the financing in 2007 at Hagan's request. Hagan created the three Signature Point entities who were defendants in the lawsuit and held the property in their names. In 2010, with the real estate and condominium market severely depressed, PBI Bank took the property in lieu of foreclosure, agreeing to provide Signature Point with a right of first refusal before it sold the property to any other developer. To obtain Hagan's agreement, PBI Bank assured him that no one was interested in the property, a statement the jury found to be fraudulent. Louisville attorney Laurence Zielke represented Signature Point. The post-trial litigation and appeal took more than three years.

Judge Orders PBI Bank to Pay Millions in Property Lawsuit

The Kentucky Court of Appeals ordered PBI Bank to pay more than $10 million to Signature Point Condominiums LLC, Signature Point Apartments LLC and Signature Point KTC. The court on found PBI responsible for six different claims made by the prosecution, including fraud and the breach of the duty of good faith. The claims stemmed from a 2006 transaction in which Scott Hagan, a real estate developer bought 90 acres of properties in eastern Jefferson County to create condos and other upscale residential developments. According to the court of appeals written decision, U.S Bank originally provided the financing for the purchase, but PBI took over the financing in 2007 at Hagan's request. PBI provided a $25 million loan to Signature Point, split evenly between a $12.5 million revolving construction loan and a $12.5 million revolving development loan. A revolving loan allows for the loan amount to be withdrawn, repaid and redrawn again in any manner and as many times as needed until the arrangement expires. Signature Point was awarded $1.5 million in compensatory damages plus $5.5 million in punitive damages for a total of more than $7 million after the 2013 trial.
