UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT CASES
Robertson v GMAC LLC, et al – A Petition for Writ of Certiorari was just filed in this ongoing case that originated in King County Superior Court. Mr. Robertson has taken this journey through the courts as a pro se litigant and with representation seeking justice in this case. Some 5 years later he is now with the US Supreme Court hoping to get justice there. A victory here will certainly change how cases are removed from state to federal jurisdiction and courts. The provisions in question are 28 U.S.C. § 1446(b)(2)(A) (Procedure for Removal of Civil Actions) and 28 U.S.C. § 1441(a) (Removal of Civil Actions)
This case also asks whether attorneys who collude together to commit fraud on the court for purposes of removing a case to federal court should be sanctioned pursuant to the inherent power of the court and/or 28 U.S.C. § 1927 (Counsel’s Liability for Excessive Costs).
This is an important read for anyone currently going through or facing possible foreclosure on their home.
