Did JPMorgan Chase Have Anything to Do with Your Foreclosure Case? January 20, 2012. By Brenda Craig.
Newport Beach, CA The US home foreclosure crisis and the practice of bundling mortgage debt into securitized bonds seems to be a never-ending source of problems.

Rather than bare the cost of proving the chain of ownership, Chase simply manufactures documents.

Jacksonville, FL Florida attorney Chip Parker says he is "appalled" by the way the fundamental rules of law are being bent, twisted and even ignored in order to ram foreclosures through the courts at lightning speed. "One day you could be the victim of an auto accident, or accused of a crime—there could be a number of reasons why you find you need access to the legal system," says Parker from Parker & DuFresne in Jacksonville.
