Connecticut Court Denies Claim Alleging Lack of Standing
The court in deciding Deutsche Bank Nat’l Trust Co. v. Speer, 2013 Conn. Super. 2682 (Conn. Super. Ct., 2013) found that the defendant misstated the law in arguing that the plaintiff must hold the assignment of the mortgage before commencing a foreclosure action.
Defendant, Sheri A. Speer, challenged the standing of the plaintiff to commence the foreclosure action. After hearing from both sides, the court was satisfied with the fact that at the commencement of this action, the plaintiff was the holder of the promissory note that was the foundation of this cause of action.
Although the plaintiff had not been assigned the mortgage at the time of commencement of the suit, it eventually had been assigned the mortgage. Furthermore, the court noted that the defendant misstated Connecticut law in arguing that the plaintiff must hold the assignment of the mortgage prior to the commencement of this foreclosure action.| Permalink
