GEOFFREY W. ECKARD, ET UX. v. KRISTINE D. BROWN, ET AL., SUBSTITUTE TRUSTEES

 

Appellant, Geoffrey Eckard, was the owner of certain residential property that was sold at a foreclosure sale by appellees and substitute trustees, Kristine D. Brown, William M. Savage, Gregory N. Britto, Heather S. Roberts, Lila Z. Stitely, and Brett A. Callahan. On March 28, 2013, the Circuit Court for Queen Anne’s County entered an order ratifying the foreclosure sale. Over a month later, appellant, proceeding pro se, filed a motion to set aside the ratification of the foreclosure sale, which the court denied by an order dated May 28, 2013. On September 5, 2013, the purchaser at the foreclosure sale filed a motion for judgment awarding possession of the property, which the circuit court granted by order entered on September 12, 2013. Appellant timely noted an appeal from the judgment awarding possession on October 15, 2013. On appeal, appellant presents one question challenging the denial of his motion to set aside the ratification of the foreclosure sale. Because appellant cannot  challenge the ratification of the foreclosure sale by appealing a judgment of possession, we shall affirm the circuit court’s judgment.
