ST. LOUIS - A federal judge in Missouri on June 13 granted in part and denied in part a motion to dismiss filed by a successor trustee in a lawsuit regarding the allegedly improper foreclosure on real property, ruling that although consumers adequately pleaded their Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), they have failed to plead claims under the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act and a claim for negligence (John Stricklin v. Litton Loan Servicing L.P., et al., No. 13-1354, E.D. Mo.; 2014 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 80670).
