Bank wrongly foreclosed on house, suit claims
KINGWOOD — A Newburg residence was destroyed in a home fire and then wrongfully foreclosed.
ChaseBankDaniel D. Danks and April D. Danks filed a lawsuit March 21 in Preston Circuit Court against JP Morgan Chase Bank NA, citing slander of title, negligence and violation of the West Virginia Consumer Credit Protection Act.

Despite the note being paid in full, the defendant initiated foreclosure proceedings against the plaintiffs and published in the newspaper they defaulted, according to the complaint.
The plaintiffs are seeking an undisclosed amount in damages.
They are being represented by Michael L. Solomon of Solomon & Solomon. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Lawrance S. Miller.
