The Daily Caller is reporting that Judge Kavanaugh’s mother was the presiding judge over the foreclosure of his accuser’s parents home. Although Kavanaugh’s mother presided over the case she never entered any rulings that resulted in the seizure of the property.
According to The Daily Caller:
Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s mother, a state court judge in Maryland, briefly presided over the foreclosure of a property owned by the parents of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the California researcher who accused the Supreme Court nominee of sexual assault.
A Daily Caller News Foundation investigation shows Judge Martha Kavanaugh was connected to a foreclosure action implicating the Blaseys, but her involvement was minimal and never resulted in seizure of the property at issue.
Maryland court records show that Judge Martha Kavanaugh issued rulings in an action initiated in 1996 by the United Mortgage & Loan Investment Corp (UMLIC) to foreclose on a Potomac, Maryland, property owned by Ralph and Paula Blasey — Ford’s parents.
The case was adjudicated in the Montgomery County Circuit Court. Public records show that Martha Kavanaugh did not rule on decisions related to possible seizure of the property. Rather, it appears the Blaseys reached a settlement with their bank before their property was lost.
It appears that Martha Kavanaugh only ruled on uncontested motions to dismiss the case after a settlement was reached. It is unclear if this is connected to the accuser’s decision to come forward.
