Kant v. Bregman Amicus Curiae by PRFA Petitioning the U.S. Supreme Court Accepted; Appeal Denied
During October, PRFA's brief of amicus curiae in the case of Kant v. Bregman was accepted by the U.S. Supreme Court, but the court denied leave to appeal. Brian P. Murphy of Griffin Farmer & Murphy, LLP, Washington, D.C., represented PRFA. Chander and Ashima Kant are alleging biased treatment in a Montgomery County, Maryland, case where they lost a house valued at $199,000 in a sheriff's auction to settle a disputed $5,372.58 bill from a lawyer. PRFA argued that the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals was incorrect in denying the case a hearing, because they considered mere procedure, rather than the substance of the appeal.
