Guilford County, ex rel. Jeff L. Thigpen, Guilford County Register of Deeds vs. LPS, et. al motions to dismiss complaint will be heard in NC Business Court, Tuesday, October 16th in Raleigh NC at 225 Hillsborough Street Suite 303.
The suit was filed by County Attorney Mark Payne and Deputy Attorney Matt Turcola on behalf of Guilford County, ex rel. Jeff L. Thigpen, in March 2012 against LPS/DocX, MERSCORP, MERS, Inc., and numerous banks, loan servicers, and foreclosure specialists. The County is seeking that the defendants clean up the “mess” they created in the County’s property records registry.
Guilford County is located in central North Carolina. Its population is approximately 500,000. Greensboro is the largest city within Guilford County. Guilford County was established in 1771, the same year it began its Registry of Deeds.
