Fidelity National Title Insurance Co. v Howard Savings Bank, 436 F.3d 836 (7th Cir. 2006).

John J Curry Jr

Practice Area:Insurance Fraud

Outcome:Bank's judgment affirmed

Description:Client bank and eight others were sued by Fidelity National Title Insurance Company, the nation's largest title insurer, on various claims of fraudulent conveyance stemming from deposit activity of the defunct Intercounty Title Insurance Company, which had dissolved in the wake of the largest title insurance escrow fraud loss ($35M) in American history to date. Client bank and other defendant banks succeeded in obtaining summary judgment in their favor in the district court. Fidelity appealed the decision, and the U.S. Court of Appeals affirmed the decision. Mr. Curry represented the client bank both in the trial court and on the appeal.
