On November 28, 2011, the Supreme Court heard oral argument in First American Financial Corp. v. Edwards.  The question in this case is whether a private purchaser of real estate settlement services has standing to sue banks and title companies that pay kickbacks for closing a mortgage loan, when there is no claim that the kickbacks affected the price or quality of services provided.

To discuss the case, we have Kevin Walsh, who is an Assistant Professor at the University of Richmond School of Law.
