On July 21, 2008, we reported on the decision of a court denying a motion to dismiss, which contended that the filed rate doctrine barred claims relating to alleged kickbacks on mortgage insurance placed with a captive reinsurer. One of the issues addressed was whether the plaintiffs, who are borrowers, have standing to assert claims that their lender and a mortgage reinsurance company violated the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act by collecting illegal referral payments in the form of excessive reinsurance premiums. The district court has denied a motion for reconsideration, but has certified the issue of whether the plaintiffs have standing to sue for interlocutory appeal pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §1292(b). Under §1292, the Third Circuit has discretion to accept or decline to accept the interlocutory appeal. Alexander v. Washington Mutual, Inc., Case No. 07-4426 (USDC E.D. Pa. Aug. 4, 2008).
