Wendel C. White v. Citibank

The Superior Court of Gwinnett County, Georgia has recently ruled on another wrongful foreclosure case dealing with the assignment of a security deed by Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems (MERS) to the foreclosing secured party.  The Court held that Georgia law is clear that as the nominee of the originating lender, MERS had the ability and legal authority to transfer and assign the security deed.  The Court further held that the borrower lacked standing to challenge the assignment from MERS because he was not a party to the contract.  The case is Wendel C. White v. Citibank, N.A., et al., Superior Court of Gwinnett County, 11-A-10818-8.
