CAPITALSOURCE BANK, f/b/o AEON FINANCIAL, LLC v. FIRST LIBERTY NATIONAL BANK, MARYLAND

RIGHT OF REDEMPTION -- FORECLOSURE -- This appeal arises from the sale of a piece of property (the “Property”) owned by First Liberty National Bank, Maryland (“First Liberty”), appellee, at a tax sale. After First Liberty failed to pay taxes on the Property, Prince George’s County (the “County”) made the Property available at a public auction. Aeon Financial, LLC (“Aeon”), appellant, offered the winning bid for the Property, and it subsequently filed a complaint to foreclose First Liberty’s right of redemption. First Liberty consented to the entry of a final judgment, and the court issued a Final Order and Judgment Foreclosing Right of Redemption. Several years later, Aeon moved to strike the judgment foreclosing First Liberty’s right of redemption. First Liberty opposed Aeon’s motion, arguing that the judgment should be upheld and Aeon compelled to pay its bid price for the Property. After a hearing, the Circuit Court for Prince George’s County denied Aeon’s motion to strike the final judgment, and it granted First Liberty’s motion to compel payment. On appeal, Aeon asserts three issues for our review, which we have rephrased slightly, as follows: 1. Did the circuit court err in denying Aeon’s motion to strike the judgment foreclosing First Liberty’s right of redemption? 2. Did the circuit court err in granting First Liberty’s motion to compel payment of Aeon’s bid price? 3. Did the circuit court’s order erroneously enter judgment against a non-party?
