They will use any legal means under the sun. The funny thing is they will prevail if not having the original available is your only defense.What is the name of your state (NM)?
What tactics will the lawyers of the bankers, federal government (student loans) use to try to advoid showing the ORIGINAL NOTE not a copy but the ORIGINAL?
It appears to have worked for this person:Yeah - you just keep on believing that.
nytimes said:So the ruling may put a new dynamic in play in the foreclosure mess: If the lender can’t come forward with proof of ownership, and judges don’t look kindly on that, then borrowers may have a stronger hand to play in court and, apparently, may even be able to stay in their homes mortgage-free.
Where?Hey - look! A leprechaun!
Did you even read the article? I think that the case in question was an exceptionIt appears to have worked for this person:
I realize it is an exception, but it's an interesting concept. It also opens quite a can of worms. The bank still holds the mortgage, although they can't collect the debt. I don't think 'cloud' even begins to describe that title.Did you even read the article? I think that the case in question was an exception
that is such a convoluted mess that while valid in itself, unless OP has similar circumstances, has no bearing on what the OP asked about.It appears to have worked for this person:
§ 3-309. ENFORCEMENT OF LOST, DESTROYED, OR STOLEN INSTRUMENT.
(a) A person not in possession of an instrument is entitled to enforce the instrument if:
(1) the person seeking to enforce the instrument
(A) was entitled to enforce it the instrument when loss of possession occurred, or
(B) has directly or indirectly acquired ownership of the instrument from a person who was entitled to enforce the instrument when loss of possession occurred;
(2) the loss of possession was not the result of a transfer by the person or a lawful seizure; and
(3) the person cannot reasonably obtain possession of the instrument because the instrument was destroyed, its whereabouts cannot be determined, or it is in the wrongful possession of an unknown person or a person that cannot be found or is not amenable to service of process.
(b) A person seeking enforcement of an instrument under subsection (a) must prove the terms of the instrument and the person's right to enforce the instrument. If that proof is made, Section 3-308 applies to the case as if the person seeking enforcement had produced the instrument. The court may not enter judgment in favor of the person seeking enforcement unless it finds that the person required to pay the instrument is adequately protected against loss that might occur by reason of a claim by another person to enforce the instrument. Adequate protection may be provided by any reasonable means.
