I know that many of us have relied on Judge Long’s reasoning in these cases at various times. Please help support the appeal effort that many fine lawyers and experts are working on. I attach a message from the folks helping with these important appeals:
|RE: WELLS FARGO BANK, N.A.,
as trustee for ABFC 2005-OPT1 Trust, ABFC Asset Backed Certificates Series 2005-OPT1,
Plaintiff, 08 MISC 386755 (KCL)
|RE: U.S. BANK NATIONAL ASSOCIATION,
as trustee for the Structured Asset Securities Corporation Mortgage Pass-Though Certificates, Series 2006-Z,
Plaintiff, 08 MISC 384283 (KCL)
Lets see what we can do as a grassroots movement to support opposition to the banks trying to overturn these decisions…
Dear Family, Friends and Colleagues:
I want to let you know that for the next several weeks I am devoting my website to a fund raising campaign to support the precedent setting cases that I intervened in last year which have been appealed to the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. http://truthinlending.net
Specifically, we need to raise approximately $4,000.00 just to print the Appellee Brief on behalf of Mark and Tammy LaRace along with a Supplemental Appendix containing the two Expert Reports that I submitted to the Land Court last year. Interestingly the Appellants, U.S. Bank National Association and Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., selected some of my work product for inclusion in their Appendix, but omitted the most damaging parts. We need to get those back into the record on appeal.
To encourage support, I will be sending everyone who makes a donation of any amount a white paper that gives a brief history of deregulation, and an explanation of the background of the Massachusetts Land Court cases. For anyone who is generous enough to contribute $125.00 or more, I will e-mail the white paper and my two Expert Reports in a downloadable PDF format. This represents a value of about $25,000.00 had I billed for my time. (Please donate here.)
Glenn Russell, the LaRaces’ attorney, has to submit everything to the printer by Friday of this week so, time is of the essence.
Once that mission is accomplished, I will be writing an amicus brief that explains why Judge Long’s well reasoned opinions should be upheld. Further, I will crystallize the facts to illustrate why overturning Judge Long’s decisions will not fix the problem for the conveyancing and foreclosure bars who have polluted our public land records and clouded title to real property nationwide by filing false documents in order to prosecute illegal foreclosures. (My Expert Report of June 29, 2009 covers this as well.)
As you can imagine, it is one thing to donate one’s time on a pro bono basis for a worthy cause, but it is unduly burdensome to have to fund the out of pocket costs as a single practitioner, especially when you are going toe-to-toe with the likes of Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., the fourth largest bank in the United States who has retained one of the largest law firms in the world to represent its interests! https://www.truthinlending.net/goliath-vs-david
I will keep you posted as these cases progress. Oral arguments are scheduled for October 7, 2010, so the appeal is on a fast track. I would not be at all surprised to see a Writ of Certiorari to the United States Supreme Court if it does not go well for the Appellants.
This is a very important case with enormous ramifications for all law abiding citizens whose rights are being trampled upon by the Banksters. Never have the prophetic words of Thomas Jefferson ever been so true:
“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”
– Thomas Jefferson, Letter to Treasury Secretary Albert Gallatin (1802)
This is without question the most important decision so far in the war against the unlawful and fraudulent conduct of the originators, securitizers, out-source-providers, default servicers, and their so-called lawyers! The Judge articulates the business models we are dealing with better than anyone has done in any opinion, article or brief. I am sure your work contributed greatly to the education of the court and for that you should be highly commended. This Judge really and truly got it! It is the perfect outline of the transactional requirements and debunks every bogus argument that the other side has been advancing for year”;
“Anyone who underestimates the importance of Judge Long’s decision in Massachusetts and the combined effect with the Kansas and Arkansas Supreme Court decisions does so at their peril. Lawyers wake up! You are not just missing an opportunity, you are missing an important piece of due diligence that makes you vulnerable to claims from clients seeking advice.”
I would very much appreciate your circulating this e-mail to all those on your contact list who might be willing to support the effort in some small way.
