Partner Anthony R. Filosa Secures Appellate Victory in Novel Mortgage Foreclosure Action Establishing Rights on Behalf of Successor Property Owner

Partner Anthony R. Filosa obtained a dismissal of a mortgage foreclosure action on personal jurisdiction grounds in MTGLQ Invs., LP v Shay, 190 AD3d 527 [1St Dept 2021]. Shay broke new ground in holding that a successor owner could obtain dismissal of an action based upon the plaintiff’s failure to obtain personal jurisdiction over the borrower—a defense typically found to be “personal” to the borrower.
