John Chiles and Zachary Miller Survey 2012 RESPA Litigation Developments in ABA’s The Business Lawyer

John Chiles and Zachary Miller were recently published in the American Bar Association’s The Business Lawyer (Vol. 68, No. 2) with an article entitled: The Supreme Court Settles a Decade-Long Debate — 2012 Survey of RESPA Developments. The article highlights important decisions issued by U.S. federal courts addressing the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (“RESPA”) during 2012. Of particular importance is the Supreme Court’s decision in Freeman v. Quicken Loans, Inc., 132 S.Ct. 2034, — U.S. —- (2012), in which the Court unanimously settled a long-standing split in authority among the federal circuit courts of appeal regarding the interpretation of the most litigated provision of RESPA, section 8(b). The article also summarizes decisions addressing standing, qualified written requests, affiliated business arrangements, and other RESPA private rights of action. Members of the Business Law Section of the ABA can obtain an electronic copy here. For anyone who is not a member of the Business Law Section, please email Zachary Miller ( zmiller@burr.com ) for a copy of the article.
