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.
