Mortgages: Brooklyn Judge Rejects Improperly Documented Foreclosure Motions, Shocks Banking Industry: "There's a judge in Brooklyn, NY, who has tossed out nearly half of the foreclosure cases brought before him over the past year, because the lenders have such messy paper trails that they can't prove ownership anymore."
Thanks to Mystery Reader for this slice of life in Brooklyn. As the article says, the judge isn't using some arcane reading of the law. "He's just forcing lenders to follow the rules." Imagine that. Wouldn't it be nice if we had more judges forcing institutions--such as HOAs and condo associations--to follow the law?
