Gary Dubin Frederick J. Arensmeyer, Andrew Goff, (Dubin Law Offices), for Defendant-Appellant.
Jade L. Ching, O Melissa M. Uhl, (Alston Hunt Floyd & Ing), for Plaintiff-Appellee.
NAKAMURA, C.J., FUJISE and GINOZA, JJ.
Defendant-Appellant Ronald W. Benner (Benner) appeals from the Judgment filed on March 6, 2013, in the Circuit Court of the First Circuit (circuit court). On appeal, Benner challenges the: (1) "Order Granting Plaintiff JPMorgan Chase Bank, National Association's Motion for Summary Judgment Filed October 26, 2012 and for Writ of Ejectment Against Defendant Ronald W. Benner" (Order Granting Summary Judgment), filed on March 6, 2013; and (2) "Order Denying Defendant Ronald W. Benner's Motion to Reconsider .the Court's Order Granting Plaintiff's Motion for Summary Judgment and for Writ of Ejectment" (Order Denying Motion for Reconsideration), filed June 21, -2013.
In his points of error, Benner contends the circuit court erred when it: (1) granted summary judgment to Plaintiff-Appellee JPMorgan Chase Bank, National Association (JPMorgan Chase) because there was a genuine issue of material fact as to whether JPMorgan Chase had authority to conduct the non-judicial foreclosure sale; (2) granted summary judgment, determining that the three-year statute of repose pursuant to the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) expired before Benner exercised his rights under the Act; (3) granted summary judgment, determining that an Unfair and Deceptive Acts or Practices (UDAP) claim could not be asserted against JPMorgan Chase; and (4) denied Benner's Motion for Reconsideration.
For the reasons set forth below, we vacate and remand.
