MFI-Miami Exclusive

MFI-Miami has acquired the complete set of briefs the Massachusetts Supreme Court will hear in the Ibanez Case.

As one of the most important foreclosure cases in New England heads to the Massachusetts Supreme Court, MFI-Miami has obtained a complete copy of both the Appellate and Appellee briefs in U.S. Bank v. Ibanez and Wells Fargo v. Larace aka “The Judge Long Ruling”.
They total about 260 pages but are worth grabbing some coffee and spending a couple of hours reading.
Basically, K&L Gates attorneys for the US Bank and Wells Fargo are using the argument that Judge Long’s decision was flawed because it went against acceptable lending practices of the time.  In other words, “Everybody was doing it.”
I call this the Bud Fox Defense.  Remember him? He was the guy from the movie, Wall Street who sweet talked all his friends into participate in Gordon Gekko’s shenanigans by claiming, “Everybody is doing it.”
Ibanez’s attorney, Paul Collier and Larace’s attorney, Glenn Russell both argue the law is the law and both U.S. Bank and Wells Fargo violated Massachusetts law.
