Division Of Banks Told That Hearings Are Not Optional

Last Fall, the Massachusetts Appeals Court held in OMV Associates, L.P. v Clearway Acquisition, Inc., 82 Mass. App. Ct. 561 (2012), that a lessee's corporate parent could not be reached under traditional veil-piercing principles to pay the debt of a subsidiary that breached a commercial lease.

First Circuit Court of Appeals Hears Culhane Case

A panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit heard oral argument in the matter of Oratai Culhane v. Aurora Loan Services of Nebraska earlier this week.  The panel was comprised of Chief Judge Hon. Sandra L. Lynch, Senior Circuit Judge Hon. Bruce M. Selya, and retired U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Hon. David H. Souter, sitting by designation.  The Culhane case is notable for District Court Judge Hon. William G. Young's discussion in a summary judgment decision of Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. ("MERS") and the propriety of MERS's system of assigning mortgages held in its name to loan servicers prior to foreclosure.  See Culhane v. Aurora Loan Serv. of Neb., 826 F. Supp.2d 352 (2011).
