Today's NY Times Cover. The story is the first article on the upper left.
One of the biggest news stories of the past three months has centered around the flood of foreclosure cases which have exposed the shoddy practices of foreclosing lenders and the attorneys who represent them.
Today, in a New York Times
front-page story, “Judges Berate Bank Lawyers in Foreclosures
,” reporter James Schwartz wrote about how judges are looking ever more critically at home foreclosures, especially here in New York.
Also, in today’s New York Times article, it was reported how judges have accused lenders’ attorneys of processing shoddy or even fabricated paperwork in foreclosure actions.
The article mentioned one of my foreclosure defense clients, Sunny D. Eng, who we successfully defended in a Suffolk County Supreme Court foreclosure case brought by Wells Fargo. In that case, which I will discuss in greater detail in a follow-up post, we were able to persuade the court to dismiss the entire foreclosure action.
