It looks like another company marketing services against lenders has run into trouble as a result of their mailers. It’s somewhat similar to the claims made against another company, NHT Law Group. You can read that story here.
It looks like mortgage lenders are going after these mass joinder like mailers more often.
In the complaint filed against The Resolution Law Group on April 13, 2012 by First Mariner Bank the bank alleges the advertising by the Resolution Law Group was false and injurious.
The mailer in question is this one.
One interesting observation is that the disclaimer at the bottom says “Licensed to Practice Law in CT and CA” but does not say who the lawyer is that is licensed.
The bank states the mailed advertisement gives the consumer “case details” about the “national lawsuit” but First Mariner Bank says those statements are untrue. Additionally the mailer alleges the bank has engaged in fraudulent or improper lending activity, which the bank denies as well and says The Resolution Law Group knew were false.
I wonder if The Resolution Law Group will try the excuse that this was a problem created by their marketing company like NHT Law Group claimed. An interesting example of the extended liability of service providers that I just covered here.
