The Barnes law Firm has been retained in a foreclosure action in New York involving eleven (11) Assignments of Mortgage ranging from 2008 to 2017 and involving multiple LLC entities, several of which are the subject of other foreclosure litigation being defended by Mr. Barnes. This is the first such case that we have seen involving that number of assignments.
In another unique case, Mr. Barnes has also been retained in a foreclosure case in New Jersey where the action was dismissed in 2014 for lack of prosecution; reinstated three (3) separate times with Court-imposed deadlines for filings by the Plaintiff; and where the Plaintiff never undertook any action during any of the three (3) permitted reinstatement periods. Despite these record facts, the Court entered Final Judgment in favor of the Plaintiff in August, 2017 although at the time, the action had not been reinstated and there was no Order extending the expired third reinstatement period. The case involves a WaMu origination and an original filing by JPMorgan Chase, which claimed to have inherited the loan as a part of the Purchase & Assumption Agreement with the FDIC (which agreement was not finalized as of the time that JPM originally filed the action).The homeowner, who was pro se, is seeking to vacate the Final Judgment on numerous grounds.
