Oregon Supreme Court To Consider ‘MERS’ Mortgage System

The Oregon Supreme Court is expected to hear two cases this week involving the mortgage industry’s Mortgage Electronic Registration System, also known MERS.

This summer, the Oregon Court of Appeals ruled that MERS lacked the ability to to foreclose on behalf borrowers under Oregon’s non-judicial foreclosure laws.
