BRIAN BLONDER ET AL. v. DENNIS HOLLIDAYOKE consol w/HOLLIDAYOKE v. JBL

Appellants served as mortgage brokers for Dennis Hollidayoke, a retired police officer, for two mortgage loan transactions. In a subsequent foreclosure action upon Hollidayoke’s home, Hollidayoke filed a third party complaint against the Mortgage Brokers, among other defendants, alleging violations of the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (“RESPA”),1 the Maryland Consumer Protection Act (“CPA”), and the Finder’s Fee Act (“FFA”).  A jury found in Hollidayoke’s favor and awarded him damages under each statute. The Mortgage Brokers seek our review of rulings of the Circuit Court for Anne Arundel County which denied their motions for judgment and partially denied their Motion Notwithstanding the Verdict, New Trial, and/or Remitter. The circuit court also reduced an award of attorney’s fees. Hollidayoke filed a motion to revise, which was denied, and Hollidayoke now cross-appeals this denial.
