The Import & Impact of Glaski v. Bank of America – The HBOR Collaborative

April 11, 2014

By Kent Qian & Brittany McCormick

The Import & Impact of Glaski v. Bank of America

A month has passed since the California Court of Appeal handed down their decision in Glaski v. Bank of America, N.A., 218 Cal. App. 4th 1079 (2013). In that month, the opinion has been published and Bank of America’s petition for rehearing denied. Now binding on all California trial courts, the opinion has attracted much attention and praise in the foreclosure defense world. This article summarizes the court’s major findings, places the decision into the current legal landscape, and analyzes both its potential impact and its limitations.

I. The Court’s Conclusions

Ultimately, the court’s conclusions are rooted in two basic and related inquiries that clarify (and in some respects simplify) the “authority to foreclose” question in California, at least for the time being. First, does the borrower allege that the foreclosing party was not the beneficiary based on specific facts? Second, if borrower’s claim is based on a failed assignment, was the assignment void, or voidable? If borrowers can allege specific facts showing that the purported beneficiary derived their authority from a void assignment, their claims, under Glaski, may now survive the pleading stage in California courts.
