Defendant Can be Ordered to Pay Home Improvement Restitution for Bad Check Guilty Plea

The Maryland Court of Appeals recently overturned the Court of Special Appeals and held that a judge can order a Defendant to pay thousands of dollars in restitution related to his fraudulent home improvement activities if he pleads guilty, not to home improvement charges, but instead, to an unrelated bad check charge. 

New Notice Required When Previous Foreclosure Case Filed and Dismissed

In Maryland, a mortgage lender is required to send detailed notice before filing a foreclosure case. In the case of Ramon Granados, his lender brought two foreclosure cases. Prior to filing the first case, it sent the required notice. However, it dismissed the first case. Later it filed a second case and sent no notice before this case was filed. The Maryland Court of Special Appeals determined that the failure to send the notice before the filing of the second foreclosure case was fatal to the second foreclosure case. As a result the foreclosure sale was invalidated.
