  • Lindsay Meador Young and Benjamin G. Torian of the Firm’s Lafayette Office successfully obtained a Summary Judgment canceling a prior mortgage of record that primed their Client’s Mortgage. The holder of the prior mortgage initially failed to cancel same; however, when evidence was submitted that showed the prior mortgage had been satisfied during a bankruptcy proceeding, the Court ordered the cancellation and the Client’s Mortgage was placed in a first-priority lien position as originally intended.
