REGISTRATION SYSTEMS, INC.,
NO: 4:12CV00082 SWW
This is a lawsuit filed on February 8, 2012, by a pro se plaintiff challenging an alleged
non-judicial foreclosure action and a subsequent writ of possession issued by the Pulaski County
Circuit Court. Plaintiff alleges she filed suit in state court to challenge the foreclosure and
appealed an adverse judgment. She also alleges that a unlawful detainer action was filed and a
writ issued. She names as defendants the Pulaski County Circuit Clerk, the Pulaski County
Sheriff, and a Pulaski County Sheriff Deputy (“County Defendants”) who issued and served
papers on her; the Mickel Law Firm PA which initiated the statutory foreclosure sale; ClearVue
Opportunity IX LLC (“ClearVue”), the mortgagee company who gave the Mickel firm its
limited power of attorney to conduct the sale; Heritage Service Company (“Heritage”), which
conducted the sale; and the Worsham Law Firm PA, which ClearVue hired to file a detainer
The County Defendants, ClearVue, and the Worsham Law Firm filed motions to dismiss,
and the Mickel Law Firm and Heritage filed a motion for summary judgment. On March 14,
2012, the Court granted plaintiff’s motion for an extension of time and ordered plaintiff to file
responses to the motions on or before March 30, 2012. Plaintiff failed to timely respond to the
motions.1 The Court finds the motions should be granted because plaintiff failed to comply with
the Order to respond by March 30, 2012.2
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the County Defendants’ motion to dismiss [docket
entry 3]; the motion for summary judgment filed by the Mickel Law Firm and Heritage Service
Company [docket entry 5]; ClearVue’s motion to dismiss [docket entry 12]; and the Worsham
Law Firm’s motion to dismiss [docket entry 21] are granted. Plaintiff’s motion for contempt
[docket entry 26] is denied, and the motion to strike [docket entry 31] is denied.
DATED this 9th day of April, 2012.
