ORDER


Defendants ACC Capital Holdings Corporation, and Argent Mortgage Company, LLC, reached a settlement with plaintiffs prior to the Court issuing an order on the parties' objections to the Report and Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge [Docket No. 55.] Based on the foregoing, all the files, records, and proceedings therein, including the arguments made by the parties on August 27, 2010:

1. The Court neither adopts nor rejects that portion of the Report and Recommendation [Docket No. 55] relating to Counts I-VII of the Amended Complaint; in light of settlement, objections [Docket Nos. 56 and 57] are WITHDRAWN as moot;

2. The Court ADOPTS that portion of the Report and Recommendation [Docket No. 55] granting plaintiff's motion for partial summary judgment (Claims VIII and IX) against defendants U.S. Bank, N.A., as trustee for CitiGroup Mortgage Loan Trust, 2007-AMC1, CitiGroup Mortgage Loan Trust 2007-AMC1, and Countrywide Home Loans, Inc., and determines as a matter of law that those defendants are in violation of 12 U.S.C. § 2605(e)(1)(A) and of Minn. Stat. § 47.205, subd. 2(3).

Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:

1. Defendants ACC Capital Holdings Corporation, and Argent Mortgage Company, LLC's motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim and for lack of standing [Docket No. 27] is DENIED as moot.

2. Plaintiffs' motion for partial summary judgment [Docket No. 31] is GRANTED in part, and that, as a matter of law, defendants US Bank, N.A., as trustee for CitiGroup Mortgage Loan Trust, 2007-AMC1, CitiGroup Mortgage Loan Trust 2007-AMC1, and Countrywide Home Loans, Inc. are adjudged to have been in violation of 12 U.S.C. § 2605(e)(1)(A), and of Minn.
