Hogan v Washington
I have been following this case for about a year. It is a classic homeowner arguing his foreclosure was improper because the entity foreclosing did not prove it had the authority to do so.
The homeowner lost via summary judgment at the trial level. He lost his first level appeal too – however, there is a twist. Counsel for the pretender petitioned the Court of Appeals to recite the Memorandum Decision as an “opinion” instead (meaning the decision would become the law of the state), which the Court did. That is the link above.
AZ banksters have not yet cited Hogan v Washington as the law of the state because a Petition for Review with the AZ Supreme Court had been pending for months.
TODAY the AZ Supreme Court granted Hogan’s Petition for Review, a rare event, requiring briefing within 25 days.
Maybe, just MAYBE, Hogan will be the case the AZ Supreme Court has been looking for to set the record straight regarding foreclosures since they punted the same issue recently in Vasquez v Saxon Mortgage.
I’ll continue to follow the filings in Hogan and report developments.
