Eighth Circuit -- Edgarline Dunbar v. Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.

 Le Court dit:

[PUBLISHED] [Gruender, Author, with Wollman and Shepherd, Circuit Judges]
Civil case. Dismissal for failure to state a claim affirmed on the basis of this court's prior opinions in Karnatcheva v. J.P. Morgan, 704 F.3d 545 (8th Cir. 2013) and Murphy v. Aurora Loan Servs, LLC 699 F.3d 1027 (8th Cir. 2011); district court was well within its discretion to impose sanctions where plaintiff's counsel engaged in fraudulent joinder to avoid federal jurisdiction and filed a complaint "blatantly premised on the show-me-the-note theory'" previously rejected by this court and the Minnesota Supreme Court.
