Raise All Related Claims During a Foreclosure Action

Publisher: New Jersey Law Journal
October 15, 2012
Day Pitney Author(s) Joy Harmon Sperling

The New Jersey Law Journal published an article by Joy Harmon Sperling and Clara Son on October 15. In "Raise All Related Claims During a Foreclosure Action" Joy and Clara discuss the implications of a recent unpublished New Jersey district court decision dealing with a potential action by borrowers against a mortgage lender for excessive debt repayment. Joy and Clara write that the entire controversy doctrine, which was applied by the judge in barring the action, "provides an important and additional procedural device to defend against postforeclosure actions involving claims that could have been brought in the foreclosure action."
