Here is one example per Fidelity National Title's Response to the Third Amended Complaint written by Edward Kunnes:
"Defendant [FNTIC] is informed and believes and thereupon allege that Plaintiff [me] is guilty of unclean hands with regard to the matter set forth in the TAC."
- Well I admit I have absolutely no idea what unclean hands is - that is in the legal term - or are they talking about when I am gardening or petting the St. Bernard or cleaning the bathroom?????
- Unclean hands?? Per Wikipedia, "Unclean hands, sometimes called the clean hands doctrine or the dirty hands doctrine, is an equitable defense in which the defendant argues that the plaintiff is not entitled to obtain an equitable remedy on account of the fact that the plaintiff is acting unethically or has acted in bad faith with respect to the subject of the complaint—that is, with "unclean hands".
- I do not think I have been acting unethically. The claim was opened by a title officer on my behalf. I did not prepare the Preliminary Title Report nor the Grant Deed.
- I just do not even know what to say or ask.
