Appellate: In a mortgage foreclosure action involving a major bank, wrote a motion for leave to appeal to the New York State Court of Appeals, which was granted. Then, successfully defeated a motion to dismiss and argued before New York’s highest court, which sustained certain issues and remanded the case to the trial court.
Appellate: Represented an appellant in a case arising from a mortgage foreclosure action. Drafted and filed a motion for reargument or for leave to appeal to the Court of Appeals arguing that the respondent bank did not own the mortgage note at issue and could not sustain its foreclosure action. Once before the Court of Appeals, conducted oral argument and achieved a partial victory where the matter was remanded to the trial court for further proceedings as to whether, under a newly-enacted statute, the bank’s ownership of the note could be challenged.
Appellate: Represented a supreme court judge and former guardian of the plaintiff in an appeal in which the appellant alleged misconduct by the judge. Drafted and filed a motion to dismiss the appeal and request for sanctions, both of which were ultimately granted.
