CIVIL ACTION NO. 3:17-CV-199
ORDER OF TRANSFER
This is the latest in a series of lawsuits Plaintiffs have filed against Bank of
America to prevent foreclosure. This lawsuit was filed on June 22, 2017, along with
Plaintiffs’ Motion for a Temporary Restraining Order. This Court denied that motion,
and Plaintiffs attempted an interlocutory appeal. Having failed to even pay the filing fee,
the Plaintiffs’ appeal was dismissed and the case has now resumed in this Court.
The live pleading in this case, Plaintiffs’ First Amended Complaint, asserts that
Plaintiffs are owners of real property within Galveston County, Texas, and that Bank of
America was the original lender on the mortgage for that home. It appears that Bank of
America has sought for several years to foreclose, and Plaintiffs have stalled the Bank by
filing a string of lawsuits in state and federal court. Now, Plaintiffs allege in this Court
that any sale of the property is barred by the statute of limitations, and they have also
filed a suit to remove cloud or quiet title under Texas law, and request a declaratory
judgment and injunctive relief in their favor.
The Court takes judicial notice of previous cases that have been filed in the
Southern District of Texas by Plaintiffs, in both the Galveston and the Houston Divisions,
as well as the orders entered in those cases by colleagues of this Court. See, e.g., 4:12-cv00331 Nguyen v. Bank of America, N.A (dismissal with prejudice by J. Harmon); 4:12-cv01481 Nguyen v. Bank of America, N.A. (granting summary judgment, dismissing claims
with prejudice on grounds of res judicata by J. Rosenthal); 4:12-cv-03158 Nguyen v.
Bank of America N.A. (entering judgment in favor of Bank, and admonishing that further
litigation on the issue “may be met with severe monetary sanctions, as further litigaiton
would be wholly frivoulous.”), affirmed by the Fifth Circuit in Nguyen v. Bank of
America, 539 Fed. App’x 325 (5th Cir. 2013) (affirming dismissal and also stating,
“Nguyen is WARNED that further frivolous litigation will result in the imposition of
After considering this history, and in light of Judge Hoyt’s order in Cause Number
4:12-cv-03158, the Court finds it appropriate, in the interests of justice and conservation
of judicial and party resources, to sua sponte ORDER that this case be transferred to
United States District Judge Kenneth Hoyt of the Southern District of Texas,
SIGNED at Galveston, Texas, this 27th day of September, 2017.
George C. Hanks Jr.
United States District Judge
