Beaumont Texas's Ninth Court of Appeals conditionally granted a writ of mandamus in favor of Bank of America as against mortgagor Trudie Crutchfield after the trial judge sanctioned San Francisco's biggest $300,000 for breaching a settlement agreement with the lady. This was the third lawsuit between the parties about this matter. BoA argued that it should have the protections of a trial against this kind of forced payment, and the Ninth Supreme Judicial District agreed.
I've got a call into the Court Clerk's office to try to find out why the court's computer records call this per curiam opinion a majority opinion. There doesn't appear to be any dissenting opinion. The opinion's a majority opinion instead of a unanimous opinion?
Thanks to David Yates and the other great people at the Southeast Texas Record for bringing this case to my attention.
