MIKE RUSSELL, Deceased; the heirs, devisees and legatees, whether known or unknown of the decedent, Mike Russell; JOHN M. RUSSELL; MYRTESS RUSSELL; JAMES RUSSELL; MICHAEL RUSSELL; ERNEST RUSSELL; MARCHAELA THOMASON; OKLAHOMA TAX COMMISSION; BRENDA D. RUSSELL,
The Cadle Company, an assignee of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, brought this action seeking judgment against defendants for payment of the balance due under a promissory note executed by Mike Russell, deceased, and foreclosure of a mortgage securing the note. After a nonjury trial conducted by a magistrate judge pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(c), judgment was entered in favor of defendants, based on the expiration of the applicable statute of limitations.
We have carefully reviewed the parties' briefs on appeal, the magistrate judge's findings of fact and conclusions of law, and the entire record before this court. We discern no reversible error and AFFIRM for substantially those reasons set forth in the Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law, dated June 11, 1997.
