Equity Bank, N.A., No. 18-1312 (8th Cir. 2019), the Eighth Circuit reached the common-sense conclusion that a plaintiff cannot require a defendant loan originator/seller to “repurchase” a loan extinguished by foreclosure.  In such a circumstance, the court reasoned, there simply is nothing left to repurchase.    More on Foreclosed Loan Sales Here>

Recent legislative reforms have ushered in a streamlined framework for the disposal of some of these undervalued and underutilized federal properties.  More on Opportunity Zone Tax Incentive Here>

Wayside Chapel Evangelical Free Church is suing Castle Hills, Texas for denying its application for a special use permit for property located at 113 Ivywood Circle.  The Church claims that the extra space is needed to accommodate its religious exercise, particularly for Sunday School classroom programs.  Reportedly, the property that was the subject of the zoning application is surrounded by other Church-owned property, where the Church already has a house of worship for 3,000 members, a distribution center for a Meals on Wheels program, administrative offices, and a building to house missionaries, among other things.  Read More On RLUIPA Here >
