UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS
FOR THE SIXTH CIRCUIT
RICK A. SLORP,
LERNER, SAMPSON & ROTHFUSS, et al.,
Jun 28, 2017
DEBORAH S. HUNT, Clerk
ON APPEAL FROM THE
UNITED STATES DISTRICT
COURT FOR THE
SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF
BEFORE: MOORE, GIBBONS, and SUTTON, Circuit Judges.
Plaintiff-appellant Rick Slorp appeals the district court’s grant of
summary judgment for defendants. Slorp filed a complaint against defendants Lerner, Sampson
& Rothfuss (a law firm), Bank of America, and Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems,
claiming that defendants attempted to fraudulently foreclose on his home. Previously, after
dismissing much of Slorp’s complaint, we remanded this matter to the district court for
consideration of one remaining count—namely, a civil Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt
Organizations Act claim, predicated on allegations of mail and wire fraud. Slorp v. Lerner,
Sampson & Rothfuss, 587 F. App’x 249, 264–66 (6th Cir. 2014). We cautioned, however, that
Slorp’s claim would “vanish” if defendant Bank of America was found to be a legitimate
mortgagee. Id. at 264. The district court found Bank of America was a legitimate mortgagee,
and we agree with its reasoning and result. For the reasons set forth in the district court’s
opinion, we affirm the grant of summary judgment for defendants.
