So the skinny is that this woman went on vacation for a couple of weeks, came back to find her key didn't work, crawled through a window, found her stuff gone, called the cops. They find that the bank had forclosed the wrong house, (the right one was across the street) changed her locks, sold or trashed all of her stuff.

She hands the bank a bill for $18K to replace her stuff & the bank rejects it because they feel they shouldn't have to "pay retail".

Smh...

I'm not one for the litigation route, but a class action lawsuit may be exactly what the doctor ordered here

The bank should rush out, buy her a ton of stuff, take her to dinner and then send her on another vacation. The public relations on this one will cost the bank much more than 18k. Least the bank didn't have Trust in its name

Exactly. "We don't bother checking addresses before we break into houses & sell off someone's belongings... Trust us with your money!"

If I was her I wouldn't settle for the $18K.  I'd sue for the contents value, her time and effort and pretty much anything else I could get out of them.

Definitely. Just because it is a bank and banks are evil, I would be thinking six figures plus.

Not to mention that it's Breaking and Entering, Larceny, and destruction of property. The bank has to replace everything, period. Including that $500,000 worth of diamonds I had in there.

I'm not one to nit pick but a class action lawsuit is with multiple parties suing for the same thing in one trial. This would just be a regular lawsuit.

Lawyers go fishing for it all the time. If this kind of fraud happened once, it likely happened elsewhere in some other form.

True but you don't hear about this kind of thing that often so I doubt it

This is why we need tort reform. Limit what she can sue for and stop trying to hurt business.
