U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade’s office filed a civil complaint Monday that says Hathaway and her husband, attorney Michael Kingsley, transferred the home in Windermere, Fla., to Kingsley’s daughter before seeking a short sale of a home in Michigan.

The short sale allowed Kingsley and Hathaway to erase nearly $600,000 in mortgage debt on the $1.5-million house in Grosse Pointe Park, which sold for $850,000, according to public records.

The complaint alleges that before submitting a Dec. 10, 2010, hardship letter to the bank in support of their request for a short sale, the couple “systematically and fraudulently transferred property and hid assets in order to support their claim to ING (Bank) that they did not have the financial resources to pay the mortgage on the Michigan property.”

The complaint says Hathaway and Kingsley quit claimed the Florida property to Kingsley’s daughter. The daughter then quit claimed the property back to them after the short sale.

What kind of state supreme court justice can't figure out the statute of limitations on real estate fraud.
