Foreclosure Hour Workshop #28: Bank of America v. Reyes-Toledo
An Important Starting Point for Exposing “The Great Deception” Hiding Who Is Really Foreclosing on American Homeowners

evidence-900x550Hawaii has now joined Connecticut, Florida, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, and Vermont as the result of another recent landmark foreclosure-related decision of the Hawaii Supreme Court, the most comprehensive of its kind yet, adopting the principle that a foreclosing plaintiff has the evidentiary burden to establish its right to enforce a promissory note at the time it commenced its action.

While it might seem to be just common sense proving you own a debt before bringing a collection lawsuit, the right to challenge the ownership of promissory notes in foreclosure Continue reading

Break up the Big Banks and Hold Wall Street Accountable for Their Risky Investments

We must create a banking system that works for every American—not just Wall Street CEOs—and enact and strengthen reforms that will protect our economy from another massive collapse. Tulsi is a cosponsor of legislation such as the Return to Prudent Banking Act (H.R.381) and the 21st Century Glass-Steagall Act (H.R.3711) to help protect Americans from big banks’ roll of the financial dice. To help ensure the financial stability of our nation, Tulsi is continuing to fight against dangerous behavior on Wall Street where investors take big risks on the backs of American taxpayers. She has urged criminal investigations of Wall Street executives who take money from American taxpayers, such as what recently happened with Wells Fargo, the nation’s largest “too big to fail” bank.

“I will always fight against the schemes of Wall Street to make risky investments on the backs of American taxpayers.” -Rep. Tulsi Gabbard

7-28-2016 Homeownership CensusHomeownership in the United States has fallen to 62.9%, the lowest rate since such statistics were kept beginning in 1965. And that rate is expected to fall below 50% in the coming decades — and the statistics are even far worse for America’s minorities.
Homeowners’ rights have meanwhile been virtually ignored by the American political and legal systems, as evident by little discussion by either national political candidates today.

And yet a flood of even more irrational judicial decisions has been seen this year, which we will discuss on this Sunday’s Foreclosure Hour radio show, by federal and big-state courts protecting pretender lenders, with virtually no real relief for defrauded homeowners yet in sight who are left to beg for loan modifications, another largely dishonest and emotionally humiliating process.

It’s Here! It’s Wimpy, but Yvanova is finally here.

We’ve all waited with bated breath for the “Happening” of the California Supreme Court decision in Yvanova vs. New Century Mortgage Corporation a case, as the Supremes put it, “granted plaintiff‘s petition for review, limiting the issue to be briefed and argued to the following: “In an action for wrongful foreclosure on a deed of trust securing a home loan, does the borrower have standing to challenge an assignment of the note and deed of trust on the basis of defects allegedly rendering the assignment void?“”

While Yvanova wins the appeal, the Supremes’ opinion is less exciting than hoped for – yet it had some redeeming qualities when you look deep into the opinion and the footnotes. It sorta keeps you Hangin’ On (pun intended). Continue reading

The Delusional Bench Squad – Collective Insanity?

By Sydney Sullivan

You may not like this movie. Wolf of Wall Street may be too vulgar. But if you are still invested in Wall Street there must be some vulgar demon or wannabe rich guy inside you that is too delusional to get out.
It’s no wonder why homeowners can’t get a fair shake in court because it appears the delusional sit above, behind and on the bench.
