Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In an action against mortgage lenders alleging that the lenders had engaged in the unauthorized practice of law by charging a fee for preparation of loan documents by nonlawyers, judgment for defendant is affirmed where: 1) all claims in a case to which the FDIC was a party had "arising under" federal subject matter jurisdiction; and 2) the document preparation fees at issue constituted loan-related fees, including without limitation, initial charges, as enumerated in 12 C.F.R. section 560.2(b)(5).
