School Hosts Congressional Field Hearing on Foreclosure Crisis Mar. 8
On Tuesday, March 8th at 9:00 a.m. the School of Law Ceremonial Moot Court Room will be the site for an important field hearing hosted by Congressman Elijah Cummings on the debt foreclosure crisis.
Congressman Cummings has requested testimony from Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and other stakeholders, relating to widespread abuses by mortgage servicing companies, including allegations of fraud and “robo-signing” in the mortgage servicing industry, and what can be done to help keep American families in their homes.
Governor O’Malley and Mayor Rawlings-Blake are expected to testify, along with members of the general public.
The hearing is open to the public and all are invited to attend. If you would like to be seated in the Court Room, please arrive on campus no later than 8:30 a.m., as there will be additional security protocols in place, and parking could be an issue.
If you cannot arrive by 8:30 a.m., the hearing will also be streamed live on the plasma screens behind the guard's desk in the lobby and in the Comcast Dining area. Room 108 is also being reserved as an overflow room.
