-Norman and Donna Abshere vs. Acc Capital Holdings et al PA - John Werner, J - Donald Floyd
A local couple, whose home was no longer habitable after Hurricane Rita hit, is suing their lender for going back on its promise. Norman and Donna Abshere claim Acc Capital Holdings, the Ameriquest Mortgage Co. and AMC Mortgage Service Inc. agreed to allow them to participate in a "Disaster Relief Program." The program allegedly gave the Absheres the option of delaying payments on their loan for 12-months. However, the couple asserts within less than 12 months the three companies went back on their word and reported them as delinquent to credit agencies. And when they tired to make a payment, the companies refused their money "on the pretext that they were in default." The Absheres are suing the defendants for deceptive trade practice damages.
