Supporting, Informing & Connecting People in Foreclosure
This is very important folks.
From the Appellate Court website 2/8/2103 -
"ANNOUNCEMENT: The Justices are soliciting amicus briefs. Whether Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems ("MERS") has standing to pursue a foreclosure in its own right as a named "mortgagee" with ability to act limited solely as a "nominee" and without any ownership interest or rights in the promissory note associated with the mortgage; whether the prospective mandate of Eaton v. Federal National Mortgage Association, 462 Mass. 569 (2012), applies to cases that were pending on appeal at the time that case was decided. The case is scheduled for argument in April 2013."
Case Docket below:
Why is this important?
Aside from the enormous ramifications that would result if Eaton v. Federal National Mortgage Association became retro-active, it would also help answer this question:
If the MERS Secret Electronic Mortgage Society can't legally enforce a foreclosure in their own scandalous name, how on earth can they legally "assign" that right to someone else?
