I'm wondering if I can still sue wells fargo bank for a wrongful foreclosure that happened in 2009? There was a class action suit in which we "won" and I received a check for $1500, and an independent foreclosure review that I also 'won' $500, but neither were anything near the value of the home I lost or the huge debt I'm still responsible for today. At the time I reached out to a lot of lawyers, but no one would help me pro bono. The bank wiped me out & I have no money for a retainer. I was told it was too new of a situation & it would cost me a lot of money & years, and I may not win because at the time there was no legal precedent. I did have a journalist try to help me, he wrote an article about me (link below) please read my story & let me know if there is anything that I can do or maybe refer me to someone who can help me. My foreclosed on property just sold for almost a million dollars & its infuriating that they took it from me & are profiting from it, while I'm still drowning in the mess they made. thank you for taking the time to read this, i hope someone can help me
Wells Fargo seems in all kinds of trouble
See internet for similar cases
Two issues here .. one you’ve been involved in litigation and its 8 years. I doubt you’ll get past the statute of limitations and maybe issue preclusion....take all your stuff to an attorney

Probably not. You received some money from a settlement, which means that you agreed to release some claims. Now, while those claims would not necessarily include all claims you could make, the receipt of the settlement money would be read as alerting you to the fact that you had some claims against Wells Fargo. That starts the clock running for statute of limitations purposes. Sorry.
