Foreclosure Law Appellate Court Opinions

by Penn, Michele


AC42026 - Compass Bank v. Dunn ("Practice Book § 13-19 is a rule not often considered by either this court or the Supreme Court. We examine it in this appeal, because the defendants Jeffrey S. Dunn and Diane C. Dunn claim that, despite their counsel's compliance with § 13-19, the trial court erroneously granted the motion for default for failure to disclose a defense filed by the plaintiff, Compass Bank. We agree with the defendants and reverse the judgment of the trial court.")

AC41851 - Wachovia Mortgage, FSB v. Toczek ("The defendant Aleksandra Toczek appeals from the judgment of strict foreclosure rendered in favor of the substitute plaintiff, Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. On appeal, the defendant claims that the trial court (1) lacked subject matter jurisdiction because the plaintiff did not have standing, (2) improperly granted the plaintiff's motion for summary judgment as to liability, (3) improperly granted the plaintiff's motion for a judgment of strict foreclosure in violation of Practice Book § 23-18, and (4) abused its discretion when it denied the defendant's motion to reargue the judgment of strict foreclosure. We disagree with the defendant and, accordingly, affirm the judgment of the trial court.")
