Foreclosure Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Mazur, Catherine


AC40039 - Bank of New York Mellon v. Ruttkamp ("The defendant, Shlomit Ruttkamp, appeals from the judgment of strict foreclosure rendered by the trial court in favor of the plaintiff and counterclaim defendant, The Bank of New York Mellon formerly known as The Bank of New York, as Trustee on Behalf of CIT Mortgage Loan Trust 2007-1. On appeal, the defendant claims that the trial court (1) lacked subject matter jurisdiction because of the plaintiff's alleged lack of standing and (2) improperly rendered summary judgment in favor of the plaintiff on the defendant's counterclaim, which alleged that the plaintiff wrongfully failed to release the notice of lis pendens it had recorded on the land records of the subject property. We affirm the judgment of strict foreclosure.")
