Lewis Landau will be speaking to the San Fernando Valley Bar Association’s Business, Real Property and Bankruptcy Section.  The argument Lew will make is that MERS is not a proper party to bring a motion for relief from stay and also that it is possible to invalidate the deed of trust where MERS is the beneficiary.  The program has attracted some attention and I believe some attorneys attending will be there to argue to the contrary.  Given the current real estate market, given the problems that the bankruptcy judges are having with the motions for relief from stay, the proof some judges are requiring before granting relief from stay and given the potential for litigation and helping debtor clients, the topic is very timely.  If anyone would like to attend, they should contact Linda Temkin at the San Fernando Valley Bar Association office at 818.227.0494, extension 105 or email her at events@sfvba.org.  One of the San Fernando Valley judges has committed to attend the program.
