WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court will decide what a home buyer must do to rescind a mortgage that violates the federal Truth in Lending Act.

The justices on Monday agreed to hear an appeal from a Minnesota couple who refinanced their home in 2007 with Countrywide Home Loans, Inc. They claim the company failed to provide some disclosures required under federal law.

The couple sent a written notice of rescission within the three-year statute of limitations, but a federal judge ruled that they should have filed a lawsuit instead. The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed.
