Litigation concerning mortgage-backed securities (MBS) is heating up in 2012, as the courts are denying many of the defendants’ motions to dismiss. This is leading to a long and involved discovery process, as both sides will have to examine the mortgage loans underlying the securitizations in great detail.
Typically, the complains in these lawsuits allege:
- The mortgage loan originator did not follow its underwriting guidelines or industry standards
- Appraisals were artificially increased and did not follow industry appraisal standards, resulting in incorrect loan-to-value percentages.
- During securitization, the due diligence process of reviewing mortgages for inclusion in the MBS was flawed or ignored.
- Mortgage terms were modified by servicing organizations and these new terms were not in the best interests of the investors of the MBS.

Your brilliant theory about how an accident happened holds no water if you can’t back it up with the support of an accident reconstruction expert. Your client’s claim regarding injuries suffered have little validity without confirmation from a medical expert witness.
