A Hillsborough County (Tampa) Circuit Judge has denied summary judgment in a case involving a WaMu loan origination which (allegedly) passed to JPMorgan Chase following WaMu’s demise and FDIC receivership and (allegedly) notwithstanding WaMu’s Bankruptcy filing the day after it went into receivership. The loan was then (allegedly) sold multiple times to three different entities. Each time the borrower amended his defenses to address a sale of the loan and substitution of Plaintiff, the loan was sold again. The 4th downline transferee, which is a private limited partnership, is now seeking to foreclose. The borrower is represented by Jeff Barnes, Esq., who prepared the formal opposition to the MSJ and argued it this week. The case is now set for trial in February, 2017.
Separately, FDSeminars’ foreclosure defense seminar series will be resuming beginning in February, 2017. The first seminar will be held on Friday, February 3, 2017 in Boca Raton, Florida at 1515 North Federal Highway (Atrium Building). The second seminar will be held in the Miami area on Friday, March 3, 2017. The third and fourth seminars will be held in Tampa and Orlando, Florida. One will be held on April 7, 2017 and the other on a date in early May which is being finalized. Locations will be announced shortly.
Attorneys will receive a minimum of 7 CLE credits. We are in the process of seeking to obtain CLE credits for both general and specific practice areas as well. We will also be videotaping the seminar so that interested parties who cannot physically attend may purchase the seminar in video format.
