The plaintiff-appellant brought a diversity action against two national banking associations, alleging violations of Louisiana consumer protection law in connection with a mortgage foreclosure proceeding. The plaintiff's claims are "independent claims" for Rooker-Feldman purposes. The defendants are exempt from Louisiana Unfair Trade Practices and Consumer Protection Law claims under the statute which precludes LUTPA liability for various entities, including "[a]ny federally insured financial institution." The district court's judgment is affirmed. 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, No. 12-30934, 04-30-2013.
