The Sundquists are among thousands of Californians who have suffered mortgage trauma in the past decade, wrote Interim UC Berkeley Law Dean Melissa Murray in a statement. “The case is in its infancy; this is the first stage of what could be a long, drawn-out appeals process,” Murray wrote. “But it’s vital that the issue of consumer fraud remain in the public domain.
