Victorian v. Wells Fargo Home Mortgage et al
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER... IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Plaintiff's motion to stay the unlawful detainer action pending in the Circuit Court of St. Charles County is DENIED. ECF No. 112 . Signed by District Judge Audrey G. Fleissig on 8/10/2017. (NEB)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI
WELLS FARGO HOME MORTGAGE,
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter is before the Court on Plaintiff’s motion (ECF No. 112), which asks
the Court to stay an unlawful detainer action pending in the Circuit Court of St. Charles
County. Pursuant to a stipulation signed by the parties (ECF No. 7), Defendants
previously voluntarily agreed to refrain from proceeding with the unlawful detainer
action until this Court ruled on a motion to dismiss the lawsuit before it, in which
Plaintiff challenged Defendants’ foreclosure of her real property.
Although this Court ruled on Defendants’ motion to dismiss in December 2015,
granting it in part and denying it in part, Defendants apparently continued to voluntarily
refrain from proceeding with the state-court unlawful detainer action thereafter, and until
this Court entered final judgment in Defendants’ favor on June 12, 2017.
Plaintiff now asks the Court to impose a stay of the state-court unlawful detainer
action, but as Defendants note in their opposition, Plaintiff has not pointed to any
authority permitting the Court to do so. Upon careful consideration, the Court concludes
that it likely has no authority to grant the relief requested by Plaintiff and that, in any
event, Plaintiff has failed to establish that such relief is warranted.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Plaintiff’s motion to stay the unlawful detainer
action pending in the Circuit Court of St. Charles County is DENIED. ECF No. 112.
