The Foreclosure Crisis Puzzle: Navigating the Changing Landscape of Foreclosure
(ABA CLE Session was 4.26.2013; BUT HERE IS THE WRITTEN MATERIAL)
This program will focus on the cutting-edge litigation in residential foreclosures and the evolution of the requirements necessary to foreclose—specifically, on the evolving requirements of assignments of the mortgage and possession of the note prior to foreclosure. The program will examine non-judicial foreclosure developments using three recent cases as a guide, U.S. Bank National Association v. Ibanez, Bevilacqua v. Rodriguez, and Eaton v. Federal National Mortgage Association. The program will also explore future policies and legal and litigation tactics.
