Forcible Detainers from Attorney’s Perspective                                                            with Attorney Rick Sherman

Rick Sherman will share his perspective of Forcible Detainers.  Attorney Sherman has prosecuted FEDs from both the servicer and homeowner side.  (Yes, Attorney Sherman has been on the homeowner side of forcible for some of his clients!)

This will be a great meeting and an excellent learning experience.  I have discussed many topics pertaining to FEDs with Mr. Sherman and I think you will be pleased with this meeting’s contents.

Please send me your questions for Attorney Sherman.

*****    Meeting Protocol     *****

What we have before us is an opportunity to learn about the Forcible Entry and Detainer from the perspective from a man who has stood on both sides of the courtroom.

Attorney Sherman is bringing us specialized knowledge and expertise in ONE area of the foreclosure process.  He will not be expected to address, nor entertain, in any way, off-topic requests, remarks or opinions.  This is not an opportunity for us to show Attorney Sherman how much we know.

Please be mindful that the focus of this meeting is FEDs.  This meeting is not about foreclosure fraud, an abysmal administration, a jaded judiciary or lax legislators.  It’s about FEDs!  Let’s keep our questions to concerns like; “you can’t argue title,” “denied,” “demanding a jury trial,” “what are your merits,” “presumption of compliance,” “Guilty or not guilty?  Is this a criminal matter?,” etc.

I understand that many people are upset and jaded about foreclosures in general.  Dropping a bomb about your frustration of things outside the control or expertise of a speaker who has agreed to share his/ her knowledge serves no one.  Truthfully, it creates an adversarial air that deprives fellow attendees of the learning opportunity they’ve come to partake in.  Additionally, it takes the speaker off their area of expertise and chews up their resources to no one’s advantage.

Got it?  FEDs!  Thank you.


Hogan Opinion Amended

The Hogan opinion has been amended by the Supreme Court of Arizona.  I’ve attached the amended opinion for your records.  The changes were essentially in section 11 of the opinion.  One sentence was amended to read, “Moreover, the trustee owes the trustor a duty to comply with the obligations created by the statutes governing trustee sales and the trust deed.”  This sentence was added to section 11, “A.R.S. § 33-801(10) (providing that “[t]he trustee’s obligations . . . are as specified in this chapter [and] in the trust deed”).


$50 Million Sweep is ON HOLD!

On Tuesday, 2012-06-12, the plaintiffs and defendants in the Morones – Hernandez v Horn (Az AG) & Ducey (Az Treasurer) case stipulated that the $50 Million Sweep from the Attorneys’ General Settlement Funds will not be transferred to the State of Arizona General Fund until at least 2012-12-31!  The Minute Entry can be found at this link:
