Mealey's (January 29, 2016, 2:11 PM EST) -- SEATTLE — After finding that former property owners' claims for violation of the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) and declaratory judgment were barred by the doctrine of res judicata, a Washington federal judge on Jan. 26 granted summary judgment in favor of a bank and found that a deed of reconveyance and an assignment of deed were void (Bank of America, et al. v. Anthony G. Mwaura, et al., No. 13-1726, W.D. Wash.; 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 9768).
