The borrower alleged that her income had been inflated to qualify her for the HUD-insured loan that she accepted, such that the loan was unconscionable under the West Virginia Consumer Credit and Protection Act. Mr. Dowdy obtained summary judgment in favor of the bank and dismissal of the action. Specifically, the Bankruptcy Court held that the method of underwriting was not inconsistent with the National Bank Act and HUD guidelines and therefore did not violate state law.
