An Ohio Title Agent was sued was allegedly stealing money from her escrow account by the title insurance underwriter who had to cover the loss. Shortly after it was discovered the agent and her husband were divorced and the agent transferred three properties to husband.
The title insurer sued the agent for fraud, theft and breach of contract. They also sued the ex-husband for fraudulent transfer of the properties. The courts ruled against the agent but denied the claims against the ex-husband. On appeal the lower courts decision was reversed and the ex was found liable.
The ruling is here.
