livinglies.wordpress.com | June 24, 2019
While I have often expressed my opinions regarding how to conduct discovery, the article written by Donna Welch, Esq., and Kaitlin L. Coverstone of Kirkland and Ellis LP in Chicago Illinois presents a clearer and more concise blueprint for planning and executing discovery.

Veira v PennyMac and JPM Chase 4th DCA Finds What Everyone has Known all along — that PennyMac never has standing and Chase, most of the time, doesn’t have standing
livinglies.wordpress.com | June 11, 2019
Another case showing shifting attitudes toward illegal foreclosures. At the trial level there have been many such decisions, some with an expanded finding of fact showing that the foreclosure was a sham. On appeal, the courts were always looking for ways to sustain the foreclosure; they still do that but more and more appellate courts are starting to understand that there is no party who has standing in most instances --- especially a creditor who actually paid value for the debt.

How the Loan was Sold Multiple Times
livinglies.wordpress.com | June 3, 2019
It is like any hedge contract. The buyer of the hedge contract is the investment bank, sometimes working through sham conduits. It is saying it wishes to ensure stability of its "portfolio."
