  •  I'd throw all that out there. (4+ / 0-)

    The bank is the deeper pocket, and they were the ones who hired repo man and gave him instructions to do what he did, so any lawyer would go after them first.  

    They will almost certainly settle, as this is horrible publicity for them.  If I were the plaintiff's lawyer, I'd be putting my client out there every chance I get.  If I were the bank's lawyer, I sure wouldn't want a jury to hear from this woman that she did nothing wrong and some repo guys came into her house and threw away everything she owned.

    Juries tend to award whatever they legally can award when they hear that kind of story.  

    The bank can then fight with repo guys over whether repo guys have to reimburse them.
