Hon. John F. Anderson
U.S. Bank National Association, as
Trustee for JP ALT 2006-SI,
This case comes before the Court on Defendants' motions to dismiss. Specifically, U.S.
Bank has filed a substantive motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim. (Dkt. No. 3). CoDefendant Surety Trustees, LLC ("Surety") has also filed a motion to dismiss in which it joins
with, and incorporates the reasons for, U.S. Bank's motion. (Dkt. No. 10). Plaintiff concedes
that Surety is only a "nominal party" but contends that it is also a necessary party under Virginia
law because Plaintiff seeks rescission of a foreclosure action. Opp'nat 2 (Dkt. No. 15). The
matter has been fully briefed and the Court found that oral argument was not necessary for the
resolution of the motions. For the following reasons, the Court finds good cause to GRANT
Defendants' motions. Accordingly, Counts II and III will be dismissed with prejudice. Count I
will be dismissed without prejudice.
