Judge BUFFORD's Notice:




Revised 1/9/08

Beginning January 22, 2008 (and until further notice), Judge Bufford will require that

a moving party on a relief from stay motion based on a promissory note bring to

court for inspection the original promissory note. (Note: do not file the note with the

court – bring it to the hearing). Production of the note will be excused only under

circumstances such as those provided in Evidence Code Rule 1004 or Cal. Comm.

Code § 3301 (as shown by competent evidence).

This requirement will apply because developments in the secondary market for mortgages

and other security interests cause the court to lack confidence that presenting a copy of a

promissory note is sufficient to show that movant has a right to enforce the note or that it

qualifies as a real party in interest (as required by Rules 7017 and 9014). Pursuant to Cal.

Comm. Code § 3412, an obligation to pay is only owing to a “person entitled to enforce an

instrument” (as defined in § 3301). Thus, the court cannot admit copies of promissory

notes in these circumstances under Evidence Code § 1003.

It's about time that the judges become aware of the quality of evidence
submitted as proof by the foreclosure specialist.

It is possible that there is a learning curve regarding the fraudulent
documents being offered as evidence.

Don't be surprised that once a judge gets a whiff he/she is being scammed
that he/she will pull prior cases and inspect them.

California is no stranger to fraud upon the court.

I have seen this happen before.  The Judge is laying the proper foundation
to put the foreclosure specialists in line or get sanctioned.

Only the judicial community can corral this madness.
