200 Million of the Most United Group of Americans in the United States – Wrongful Foreclosure American Homeowners

By Sydney Sullivan

Judicial ActivismFor all the talk about a divided America (mostly political that we shy away from on the DC blog), there is a HUGE group of people that can collectively agree we were screwed, smeared, and denied due process in courts that failed to follow the Rule of Law. This is the massive population of American Homeowners.

The majority of over 84 MILLION families were unwittingly lured into a corrupt Wall Street securities scheme that cost them their clear title properties and in some cases their lives or the lives of their loved ones. American Homeowners can easily collaborate and identify with each other because the same crimes were committed over and over on each of them. Talk about a united, cohesive bunch of people – we are the American Homeowners! Continue reading

Foreclosure Workshop #70: Bank of America v. Reyes-Toledo (October 9, 2018) (Reyes-Toledo 2) — Hawaii Supreme Court Frees Hawaii Homeowners from Decades of Wrongful Federal Judicial Interference with Their State Court Foreclosure Defense Rights, Which New Published Opinion Should Become a Model for Every State Judiciary

I have mentioned on numerous shows that the federal courts are generally a virtual graveyard for homeowners being foreclosed on, and I meant that as no exaggeration.

For I have been an eye-witness advocate to decades of the mindless arrogant slaughter of homeowners’ rights in federal courts, generally ignoring Truth-in-Lending rescissions, ignoring loan modification abuses, ignoring the lack of good faith and fair dealing in nonjudicial auctions, ignoring the adequacy of notice pleading, and ignoring the many fraudulent and undisclosed low visibility practices within MERS and REMIC securitized trust paper hocus pocus mumbo jumbo.

U.S. Bank v. Jewel Moore — Learn from Jewel Moore Live How She Was Victimized by the Foreclosure System in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii and What Her Case Teaches Us About the Reforms in the Foreclosure System That Are Desperately Needed

For years, following the Mortgage Crisis of 2008, lenders have been fined by regulators nearly one-half-trillion dollars, if not more, for admittedly submitting fraudulent loan documentation under oath in foreclosure cases in state and federal courts.

And more recently a growing number of state and federal judges have understandably denied lenders summary judgment where their supporting foreclosure documents have either been in violation of the rules of evidence or suspiciously or outright fraudulent.

Yet, despite all such welcome, albeit belated, official leadership, the legal system, including its appellate courts, have woefully lacked Continue reading

This Sunday’s Show will air in Hawaii at 2:00 p.m. (HST) instead 3:00 p.m., its otherwise regular time. Honolulu KHVH Radio & Internet. The Foreclosure Hour

 

John and I receive thousands of letters, emails, and voice mail messages annually from our listeners from just about every State and some foreign countries, detailing their personal experiences trying to fend off foreclosures and evictions.

Time limitations naturally permit us to personally respond to only a few.

We thought that we would, therefore, start a new tradition by reading some of those experiences on our year-end show(s) enabling us to respond in that way to more inquiries. Continue reading

Why Homeowners Should Be Allowed To Use a Writ of Mandamus Against a Foreclosure Judge Ruling Contrary to State Court Appellate Precedent

Why Homeowners Should Be Allowed To Use a Writ of Mandamus Against a Foreclosure Judge Ruling Contrary to State Court Appellate Precedent.

One of the most important and well-recognized responsibilities of an appellate court is to effectively supervise lower courts in order to foster not only correctness and uniformity in judicial decision making but also adherence to its appellate opinions.

Historically there were two distinct means of achieving such effective supervision, notices of appeal and mandamus writ petitions, the latter a much quicker appellate procedure, yet more recently appellate review has become favored over mandamus review for numerous institutional reasons.

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
