PNC BANK, NATIONAL
MICHAEL WILSON and KAREN L.
This matter is before the Court on Plaintiff PNC Bank, National
Association's ("PNC Bank") Motion for Summary Judgment. (Doc. 63.)
Magistrate Judge Jeremiah Lynch entered Findings and Recommendation on April
28, 2016, recommending granting the motion. (Doc. 84.) The parties did not file
Where there are no objections, the court is to give the level of consideration
it deems appropriate, Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 150 (1985), and this Court
reviews for clear error. Clear error exists if the court is left with a "definite and
firm conviction that a mistake has been committed." Concrete Pipe & Prods. of
Cal., Inc. v. Constr. Laborers Pension Trust for S. Cal., Inc., 508 U.S. 602, 623
(1993) (internal quotation marks omitted).
The Court finds no clear error in the finding that Defendant Michael Wilson
is in default under the promissory note, that PNC Bank is the proper party in
interest with standing to pursue foreclosure under the promissory note and the
deed of trust, and that it is entitled to foreclosure and sale. Wilson's clean hands
argument is without merit. The Court finds no clear error in the finding that
Wilson cannot sustain his claims under the Consumer Protection Act.
Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that the Findings and Recommendation
(Doc. 84) is ADOPTED IN FULL.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Plaintiffs Motion for Summary Judgment
(Doc. 63) is GRANTED. Plaintiff is entitled to foreclosure and sale of the
Gallatin Property, and Defendant Wilson's counterclaims under the Consumer
Protection Act are DISMISSED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that all deadlines are VACATED, and any
pending motions are DENIED as moot. The bench trial set for June 13, 2016, is
VACATED. The Clerk of Court is directed to close this case.
