I-Team: Judge Dismisses Charges in Robo-Signing Case

LAS VEGAS -- A judge dismissed all felony charges Monday against two people accused of robo-signing.

The judge decided the Attorney General's office mislead the grand jury to indict two former home loan title officers. This was Nevada's largest criminal case against foreclosure fraud.

Gerry Sheppard and Gary Trafford were former employees with Lender Processing Services. They faced 306 felony counts of falsifying foreclosure notices.

Defense attorney John Hueston said Las Vegas Judge Carolyn Ellsworth decided the charges should not have been brought to criminal court and that prosecutors used misleading language to obtain a grand jury indictment.
