|Reported Cases||Representative Matters: Obtained a victorious trial verdict after a 2 day bench trial in a mortgage foreclosure action as Managing Counsel for Ocwen Loan Servicing, LLC against a borrower who was a sophisticated credit consumer with multiple investment properties. The court held the borrower did not have standing to challenge the Assignment of Mortgage and Ocwen had established standing to foreclose. Obtained on behalf of Wells Fargo Bank an order granting summary judgment against the Luzerne County Tax Claim Bureau setting aside an improper judicial tax sale. Obtained an order on behalf of Ocwen Loan Servicing, LLC, setting aside a sheriff sale due to a fraud by the mortgagor and a fatal title defect in the mortgage, three years after the recording of the sheriff's deed. Obtained on behalf of plaintiff-respondent from the Superior Court of New Jersey, Appellate Division, an affirmation of a decision obtained on behalf of plaintiff-respondent from the Superior Court of New Jersey, Chancery Division, Ocean County, rejecting the defendant-appellant's motion to vacate a final foreclosure judgment, with the Court ruling it would be inequitable to permit a raising of a lack of standing defense after defendant-appellant had not raised that defense during the three years the foreclosure complaint was pending.
