Foreclosure Stopped By Due Process &The Rule of Law, Florida Appeals Court Applies and Overturns Another Ditech Foreclosure Lawsuit. We are seeing a paradigm shift reflecting changes in consensus of appellate courts.

Here we have the usual musical chairs of companies claiming to be servicers and in this case claiming that they sent a notice of default. The denial by the homeowner that they received the notice of default has nearly always been taken with a grain of salt, thus giving an insurmountable edge to the servicer or bank who filed the action.
