Supporting, Informing & Connecting People in Foreclosure
Amicus Curiae submitted by the City of Providence (Bucci vs. Lehman Brothers et al)
You have to read the whole thing folks but here are several excerpts from the brief.
"The City of Providence is an interested party because MERS's intentional misrepresentation as a mortgagee and the Superior Court's erroneous decision to allow the perpetuation of this misrepresentation is harming the City."
"Allowing MERS to confer upon itself the status of mortgagee undermines the accuracy of the land evidence records, which in turn both delays foreclosure proceedings and impedes the City's ability to safeguard the basic health, safety, and welfare of it's citizens with proactive enforcement of health, safety, and welfare of it's citizens with proactive enforcement of health and safety codes. Accordingly, the City of Providence moves to submit the attached brief as an interested party and friend of the Court to underscore why MERS is not and cannot be a mortgagee and to highlight the extent and danger of the term's misuse."
It's important to note that the Rhode Island Superior Court has been hanging it's proverbial hat on it's original *erroneous* ruling in the Bucci case for a very long time.
Also in Rhode Island we have banker Merrill W. Sherman running around masquerading as a quasi-judge in Federal Court making excuses for her foreclosure fraud pals.
I hope one of her deputy assistants can manage to read this to her.
This is indeed a bad turn of events for the Black Hat Bankers in the State of Rhode Island.
Well, it sounded great didn't it?
Here is the Rhode Island Supreme Court "response".
Simply unbelievable. MERS has more authority in RI Superior Court than the Capital City.
