As Sgt. James Hurley fought for his country in Iraq, one of the world's largest lenders and their lawyers seized his home and evicted his family. His home was to be protected by the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act, from the principles established by Gen. George Washington and supported by every president since. However, it would take years of court action, and a trial that mirrored a John Grisham novel, to uncover a scheme that violated soldiers' rights and federal law.
"A Soldier's Home," by Matthew R. Cooper, follows Sgt. Hurley from his tranquil life at home, his tour in Iraq, and a federal court lawsuit that would result in congressional amendments that benefit all servicemembers in the United States Military. Sgt. Hurley took on Deutsche Bank, Saxon Mortgage Company, and a Detroit foreclosure law office in a David vs. Goliath campaign that lasted seven years, and resulted in the first jury trial of its kind.
