Foreclosure Litigation With James Kowalski

The paperwork mess muddying home foreclosures erupted last month. But the legal strategy behind it traces to a lawyer’s gambit in 2006 that has helped keep one couple in their home six years beyond their last mortgage payment.

Lillian and Robert Jackson stopped paying on their home in Jacksonville, Fla., in 2004 when business dropped off at their cleaning company. Eviction might have seemed inevitable when they faced a foreclosure hearing two years later.

But their lawyer, James Kowalski, had the idea of taking a deposition from the signer of the mortgage papers. When a document processor for GMAC Mortgage admitted she routinely signed such papers without being familiar with details of the loans, she was tagged as one of a species now known as robo-signers.

It was a first step in the growth of a legal sub-specialty called foreclosure defense that has sown confusion and turmoil in the housing market. Lawyers in the field now commonly use a technique more identified with corporate litigation: probing depositions, designed to uncover any lapses in judgment, flaws in a process or wrongdoing. In the 23 states where foreclosures entail a court hearing, the bank may be ordered to pay the homeowner’s legal bill if a lawyer can convince a judge that the bank has submitted false documents, such as affidavits saying employees personally reviewed the details of loans when they didn’t.

Honda Motor Co., based in Tokyo, Japan, will be recalling an additional 437,000 vehicles in what has become an ongoing, 15-month process that involves cars around the globe.

Honda will be replacing driver side air bag inflators that can apparently deploy when too much pressure is applied to them, potentially causing injury or death. Of the additional vehicles that are being recalled, 378,000 are in the U.S., while 41,000 are in Canada and 17,000 in Japan. The total recall from Honda is now affecting 952,118 vehicles in total, including some Honda vehicles that go all the way back to 2001.
