PUBLIC TRUSTEE’S SALE STOPPED IN COLORADO ON LESS THAN 2 DAYS’ NOTICE

March 1, 2011

A Colorado District Court Judge today granted Jeff Barnes, Esq.’s Motion for a Temporary Restraining Order to stop a public trustee’s sale scheduled for tomorrow morning, March 2. The Order was entered less than an hour before the Court closed. The Motion was filed yesterday (Monday, February 28) after Mr. Barnes only received notice on Friday, February 25, 2011 that the sale was to be held tomorrow.

Separately, Mr. Barnes is now handling several cases in Colorado as lead counsel, and has been requested to become co-counsel in several others in connection with challenges to foreclosure including cases involving Colorado’s Rule 120 pre-foreclosure hearing procedure. Borrowers are asserting that prior case law of the Colorado Supreme Court governing the scope of Rule 120 hearings, which case law permits issues challenging a foreclosure to be asserted in the hearing, is not being followed by certain Colorado courts.

Mr. Barnes was also recently admitted pro hac vice in Knox County, Indiana, and will be filing for similar admission to the Maui, Hawai’i court in several cases there as well.
