We hope that everyone had a safe and happy Memorial Day holiday.
Today, Jeff Barnes, Esq. appeared in court hearings in three separate counties in New Jersey on Motions to Compel Discovery which were filed by him and his local counsel. An Order was entered in one case compelling IndyMac to produce trust documents relating to an admitted Fannie Mae securitization (over the objection of IndyMac’s counsel), and compelling depositions of HSBC “as Trustee” and Ocwen Loan Servicing in a separate case where HSBC, although admitting a secuitization, claims that “there is no Pooling and Servicing Agreement”. New counsel for the Plaintiff in the third case agreed to produce certain of the discovery in lieu of defending the Motion.
Separately, Mr. Barnes has been recently admitted to courts in Washington, Tennessee, and Minnesota pro hac vice where he is assisted by local counsel.
The FDN network also expanded last week, adding local counsel Michael Collins, Esq. in Maui, Hawaii in connection with Mr. Barnes recently receiving requests for representation in six cases in Maui. Mr. Collins’ Firm also practices Bankruptcy and handles ejectment (eviction) proceedings.
