Joy Harmon Sperling and Erin Hodgson authored an article, "NJ Supreme Court Affirms Mortgage Assignee's Right to Enforce Lost Note." The article in the New Jersey Law Journal is a follow up to "NJ Court Confirms Standing Based on Lost Note Affidavit, When Loss Is Prior to Assignment," which discusses the admissibility of lost note affidavits when the loss of the note occurs prior to an assignment. The new article discusses the Supreme Court of New Jersey's unanimous opinion in Investors Bank v. Javier Torres, Docket Number A-55-18, which served to clarify and confirm the right of an assignee to enforce a mortgage note that has been lost by its predecessor. Read the full article here.
