Consumer Law : Foreclosure – Invalid Assignment – Standing

Where homeowners challenged a lender’s authority to foreclose on their home, the district court properly granted the defendant’s motion to dismiss because the homeowners lacked standing to bring the action since they were not injured by an allegedly invalid assignment between creditors, and the homeowners also did not show that the notice given to them by the lender’s predecessor was insufficient.

Judgment is affirmed.
