Parker v. Columbia Bank
Maryland Court of Special Appeals
91 Md. App. 346 (1992)
Robert and Margaret Parker (plaintiffs) contracted with builder George Evangelos Paleologos for the construction of a house. The Parkers entered into a construction-loan agreement with Columbia Bank (the bank) (defendant). Throughout the course of construction, the bank received numerous calls from contractors working on the house but did not disburse funds to the contractors or supervise the construction. Paleologos later opened an account with the bank but had insufficient funds, so the bank granted him a line of credit. The Parkers later received a supplier’s notice of intent to file a lien. The Parkers asked the bank about the lien, and the bank said it knew nothing of the lien. The Parkers subsequently brought suit against the bank, alleging fraudulent concealment, negligent misrepresentation, negligence, and breach of fiduciary duty. The circuit court dismissed these claims, and the Parkers appealed.
