By Ebube Okoli

The Massachusetts Land Court in deciding Suntrust Mortg., Inc. v. Forsberg, 2013 Mass. LCR LEXIS 159 (Mass. Land Ct. 2013) found that defendant (Alfred Forsberg) was not entitled to the protection of the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act, 50 U.S.C. §§ 510 et seq., at the time of foreclosure; and that service and publication of the notice naming SunTrust Mortgage LLC rather than SunTrust Mortgage Inc. did not invalidate the foreclosure sale.
