I'm looking for signs, today, that foreclosure cases that had been halted are starting up again. And if these cases come back to life, is it an easy, no-problem, just refile them here, process?
Yesterday, The New York Times' Gretchen Morgenson reported here that the U.S. Trustee overseeing some bankruptcy cases is raising questions about the validity of the foreclosure claims.
The major lenders and servicers in September and October pulled back on hundreds of thousands of cases nationwide after the revelations that "robo-signers" had been preparing documents without verifying them or even reading them in foreclosure lawsuits in Florida and other states.
The lenders and servicers vowed said they'd review their processes and come back to the courts when they cleared up the paperwork problems.
Some of the big ones have said their review is complete.
But what's happening now? Anybody know?
