SJC-12042

ELNEDIS A. MORONTA  vs.  NATIONSTAR MORTGAGE, LLC, & another.[1]

December 22, 2016.

Consumer Protection Act, Demand letter.

Elnedis A. Moronta commenced this action in the Superior Court, alleging that the defendants, Nationstar Mortgage, LLC (Nationstar), and Fremont Investment and Loan, among other things, violated his rights under G. L. c. 93A.  Summary judgment was entered against Moronta on all his claims.  On Moronta’s appeal, the Appeals Court concluded that there was a genuine issue of material fact as to Moronta’s c. 93A claim and reversed the grant of summary judgment.  Moronta v. Nationstar Mortgage, LLC, 88 Mass. App. Ct. 621, 622 (2015).  In doing so, the Appeals Court rejected the defendants’ argument that Moronta’s c. 93A claim was barred due to his failure to serve a demand letter, on the ground that no demand letter is required under G. L. c. 93A, § 9 (3), where “the prospective respondent does not maintain a place of business . . . within the commonwealth,” regardless of whether it “keep[s] assets” here.  Moronta, supra at 626 n.11.  We granted Nationstar’s application for further appellate review, and we subsequently limited the scope of review to issues concerning the demand letter.[2]

PAUL SHEA  vs.  FEDERAL NATIONAL MORTGAGE ASSOCIATION & others.[1]

No. 13-P-1630.     February 18, 2015.

Real Property, Mortgage.  AssignmentMortgage, Real estate, Assignment, Foreclosure.  Practice, Civil, Motion to dismiss.

     At issue is whether a judge properly dismissed[2] the plaintiff’s claims[3] attacking the validity of a mortgage foreclosure to which Eaton v. Federal Natl. Mort. Assn., 462 Mass. 569 (2012), does not apply.[4]  The plaintiff contends that the foreclosure was void because the mortgage was not validly assigned to OneWest Bank FSB (OneWest), the foreclosing mortgagee.  He argues that the assignment was invalid because (1) the assignor never held the underlying note, and (2) the assignment was not specifically authorized by the owner of the debt.[5]  We affirm.[6]
