This case (also linked on the MSFraud homepage), is very significant, as the appellate court addresses the standing issue, stating:

"[a] bank that was not the mortgagee when suit was filed cannot cure its lack of standing by subsequently obtaining an interest in the mortgage."

"Thus, WFB lacked standing to bring a foreclosure action against Jordan. As such, the trial court erred in granting summary judgment in favor of WFB because WFB was not entitled to judgment as a matter of law. We sustain Jordan's first assignment of error, reverse summary judgment, and order the trial court to dismiss the complaint [**13] without prejudice." (emphasis added by MSF)

That is very good news.

I've a friend in Ohio fighting the good fight and this will be extremely useful for him.

I'm also fighting the fight, and am preparing my own appeal on the same issue. Reading over the case files and documents should be beneficial to me even though I'm in another jurisdiction.

The news gets even better!

Yesterday, we received the following Ohio decision referencing the decision: Wells Fargo Bank v. Jordan, 2009 OHIO 1092 (8TH DIST. CT. APP., MAR.12, 2009) we put up yesterday.

I agree these two cases are REALLY important.

In Countrywide v. Pearl the Magistrate on 3-26-2009, in ruling against Countrywide, cited Wellsfargo v. Jordan, which had been decided on 3-12-2009, just 14 days prior!  Obviously the Jordan decision is going to carry a lot of weight at least on Ohio.

I would expect 'Jordan' to at least be cited in a Request for Judicial Notice in other jurisdictions.

Update in RE Countrywide v Pearl....


This was straight from the Judge in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court, not the Court of Appeals like Jordan. Good news indeed!
