No. 08-2153.United States Court of Appeals, Third Circuit.Submitted pursuant to Third Circuit LAR 34.1(a) Monday, September 20, 2010.
Opinion filed: September 30, 2010.
Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania (Civ. No. 2-05-CV-4M497), District Judge: Hon. Juan R. Sanchez.
David A. Scholl, Esq, Newtown Square, PA, for Plaintiff-Appellant.
Steven M. Schain, Esq, Law Offices of Steven M. Schain, Philadelphia, PA, for Defendant-Appellee.
Before: MCKEE, Chief Judge, AMBRO and CHAGARES, Circuit Judges.
McKEE, Chief Judge.
Barbara L. Abbott appeals the District Court’s judgement in favor of the defendant in her suit under the Truth-in-Lending Act (“TILA”), 15 U.S.C. § 1601 et seq. For the reasons set forth below, we will affirm.
The district court has set forth the factual and procedural history of this case, and we need not repeat them. See Abbott v. Washington Mutual Finance, Inc., 2008 WL 756069
(E.D.Pa. March 20, 2008). On appeal, Abbott argues that the district court erred in finding that the broker’s compensation charge was not covered under the TILA and that the defendant was not liable for damages. She also argues that the court abused its discretion by refusing to allow her to amend her complaint.
In his Memorandum and Opinion, Judge Sanchez carefully and clearly explained his reasons for finding that the fees paid to the broker are not covered by the TILA. The district judge’s analysis is thorough and well-reasoned, and we can add little to his thoughtful analysis since his Memorandum and Opinion explain the court’s conclusions.
Accordingly, we affirm the district court’s order substantially for the reasons set forth in the district court’s Memorandum and Opinion without further elaboration.
