Pigford Claims Remedy Act of 2007 - Declares that any Pigford claimant (relating to a racial discrimination action against the Department of Agriculture) who has not previously obtained a determination on the merits of a Pigford claim may, in a civil action, obtain that determination. Asserts that it is Congress's intent that this Act be liberally construed so as to effectuate its remedial purpose of giving a full determination on the merits for each denied Pigford claim.

(1) the applicant's race;
(2) the application and loan decision dates; and
(3) the location of the office making the loan decision. Sets forth provisions respecting:
(1) expedited claim resolution; and
(2) foreclosure limitation. Defines:
(1) \"Pigford claimant\" as an individual who previously submitted a late-filing request under the consent decree in the case of Pigford v. Glickman
(1999); and
(2) \"Pigford claim\" as a discrimination complaint as defined and documented by such consent decree.
