I apologize for the shameless self-promotion, but I just had an op-ed published on Huffington Post. The Washington Post reported today that over half of Americans support a mandatory moratorium. In my piece, I defend the White House's resistence to popular calls for a government-mandated foreclosure moratorium.
I didn't delve into this point in the op-ed, but does anyone know what the proposed legal basis of a foreclosure moratorium might be? I find the idea that the President or Congress could order state courts to halt hundreds of thousands of cases between private parties fairly mind-boggling.
