N.J. Federal Judge Dismisses $1.5 Million Superstorm Sandy Lawsuit Against Bank
February 28, 2017
CAMDEN, N.J. — A New Jersey has dismissed for lack of jurisdiction a $1.5 million lawsuit accusing a bank of breaching a mortgage agreement by failing to place force-placed flood insurance policy on a beachfront property before Superstorm Sandy hit.
