Foreclosure action is dismissed

June 13, 1997

Foreclosure proceedings against Hagerstown City Councilwoman Susan Saum-Wicklein and her husband on their downtown jewelry store building have been dismissed.

A court order dated June 5 indicates the attorneys for NationsBank and the Hagerstown couple have agreed to the dismissal.

The order was signed by Washington County Circuit Judge John H. McDowell.

NationsBank had filed the foreclosure notice on May 1, saying Saum-Wicklein and her husband, Michael Wicklein, were $10,603.67 behind on a $71,700 loan. The arrears included penalty and interest, according to the foreclosure notice.

Saum-Wicklein said the bank was wrong but placed $10,603 in an escrow account in Washington County Circuit Court on May 9.

That money has been returned to the couple, according to court records.

The foreclosure battle was being fought just days before the May 20 city election in which Saum-Wicklein won a third council term.
