Foreclosure Fraud Cases

Kim et al. v. JP Morgan Chase Bank 302528 (Mich. Cir. Ct. Macomb Co.)


Plaintiffs opposed JPM's foreclosure action on their home. PLaintiffs had mortgage from Washington Mutual; after default, Wa Mu's successor JPM initiated foreclosure and purchased the home at a sheriff's sale. Plaintiffs claimed that JPM had not recorded it's alleged interest in the home before the sheriff's sale as required by state law; although Macomb Circuit Court granted judgment to the bank, plaintiffs appealed; Michigan Court of Appeals reversed finding in favour of plaintiffs that JPM had not recorded interest prior to sheriff's sale and thus was not authorised to proceed with the sale.
