LIVING LIES: “It’s complicated. Giving the investors money was a pay down of the obligation owed by the investment Banks, not the Borrowers. It didn’t change anything in the trust.
But that begs the real question. The trust never owned anything to begin with. The trust does not exist as a legal person under any law of any jurisdiction simply because there is absolutely nothing in it. Therefore there is no law that could or would support any claim on behalf of a REMIC trust as a claimant in bankruptcy, a Plaintiff in judicial foreclosure or a beneficiary in nonjudicial foreclosure.
Yes it is that simple. But getting there is difficult particularly when dealing with widely held misconceptions of the facts. And failure to raise the point might in effect give the lawyers for “the trust” judicial standing for the purpose of that action in court.”
