Iraq vet James Hurley loses 'dream home' to foreclosure |

Iraq vet James Hurley loses 'dream home' to foreclosure | "While he wished he could have his old place back, he hoped to put the episode behind him after settling a lawsuit against Deutsche Bank Trust Co., Saxon Mortgage Services, and Orlans Associates, which allegedly certified that Hurley was not in military service prior to the filing of foreclosure.
As part of a confidentiality agreement, details of the settlement were not released.
A judge in 2009 found violations of the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act, which is intended to protect members of the military from foreclosure while on active duty, because the foreclosure occurred without a judge’s order.
James and Brandie Hurley, who said the ordeal hurt their marriage, took the case to trial to prove their damages.
The case has received nationwide publicity, highlighting the troubles among some troops deployed overseas. About a dozen supporters, including Patriot Guard Riders, showed up at the start of trial earlier this month. The case was in its sixth day when the parties reached the settlement."
