Foreclosure Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Zigadto, Janet


AC45699 - Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. v. Melahn ("The defendant Michael John Melahn appeals from the judgment of strict foreclosure rendered by the trial court in favor of the plaintiff, Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., as Trustee for Option One Mortgage Loan Trust 2007-6, Asset-Backed Certificates, Series 2007-6. The defendant claims that the court improperly (1) declined to hold an evidentiary hearing on his motion to dismiss, which asserted that the plaintiff failed to give him proper notice of the Emergency Mortgage Assistance Program (EMAP) as required by General Statutes 8-265ee (a), (2) denied his motion to dismiss as an impermissible collateral attack on the 2010 judgment of strict foreclosure, and (3) rendered summary judgment as to liability only despite the plaintiff's failure to comply with the EMAP notice requirement. We affirm the judgment of the court.")
