The Constitution of Ohio
We, the people of the State of Ohio, grateful to Almighty God for our freedom, to secure its blessings and promote our common welfare, do establish this Constitution.
Preamble

All men are, by nature, free and independent, and have certain inalienable rights, among which are those of enjoying and defending life and liberty, acquiring, possessing, and protecting property, and seeking and obtaining happiness and safety.
Article 1, Section 1

The right of trial by jury shall be inviolate, except that, in civil cases, laws may be passed to authorize the rendering of a verdict by the concurrence of not less than three-fourths of the jury.
Article 1, Section 5

All men have a natural and indefeasible right to worship Almighty God according to the dictates of their own conscience. No person shall be compelled to attend, erect, or support any place of worship, or maintain any form of worship, against his consent; and no preference shall be given, by law, to any religious society; nor shall any interference with the rights of conscience be permitted. No religious test shall be required, as a qualification for office, nor shall any person be incompetent to be a witness on account of his religious belief; but nothing herein shall be construed to dispense with oaths and affirmations. Religion, morality, and knowledge, however, being essential to good government, it shall be the duty of the General Assembly to pass suitable laws, to protect every religious denomination in the peaceable enjoyment of its own mode of public worship, and to encourage schools and the means of instruction.
Article 1, Section 7

All courts shall be open, and every person, for an injury done him in his land, goods, person, or reputation, shall have remedy by due course of law, and shall have justice administered without denial or delay. Suits may be brought against the state, in such courts and in such manner, as may be provided by law.
Article 1, Section 16

It is happening in Ohio


Major U.S. Banks Investigated For Foreclosure Fraud
“If judges start digging deeper into the foreclosure mess ... they're also going to find that many loans from the housing bubble were so badly documented that many are unenforceable. That'll be an even bigger mess.
"What we have here is lying under oath. The facts may or may not be correct. And this seems to have been an industry-wide practice, where the companies encouraged this and required it of their employees -- to commit deliberate fraud on the court in case after case after case."
Cordray says it's eerily similar to the industry-wide sanctioning of mortgage fraud that helped create the foreclosure crisis.

PHH Mortgage Corporation v. Barker

The Barkers win against PHH. PHH takes over a note, refuses to accept payments, and pursues foreclosure. Judge Shaw stops the foreclosure. Great job, Judge. Homeowners, beware! Not all judges are like Judge Shaw.

In Idaho, PHH claimed to take over our note, refused to accept our payments, and pursued foreclosure. PHH and their accomplices created fraudulent documents and instruments. We irrefutably proved they were invalid and inadmissible. Judge Michael Griffin did not disagree. He just refused to consider our motions and evidence...even when Chase admitted to still owning the loan in response to a federal request (QWR).

In Montana, Wells Fargo assigned our loan into a closed REMIC Trust TWICE. The second assignment did not even include the Note which made the assignment a nullity in Montana. Judge Mike Menahan said we were not a party to either illegal transfer of the loan so we could not challenge its authenticity. New York corroborated the assignments were void. Both banks denied they were foreclosing on us. Judge Mike Menahan would not require Erika Peterman of RCO Legal to produce Proof of Authority that she was actually representing the banks. Read our story...it is unbelievable, but...It happened to us. It could happen to you.

Case Excerpts

Below are excerpts from legal cases that we have found during our research. Please note that we are not necessarily recommending or endorsing any of the cases or their outcomes. However, we have found the parts below to be helpful and informative in our battle.



Holder of Note and Mortgage
“The real party in interest in foreclosure actions is the current holder of the note and mortgage…if the note is payable to an identified person, negotiation requires transfer of possession of the instrument and endorsement by the holder.”
Bank of Am., NA v. Miller, 2011 Ohio 1403, 194 Ohio App. 3d 307 (2011)

Standing
“Thus, because it failed to establish an interest in the note or mortgage at the time it filed suit, it had no standing to invoke the jurisdiction of the common pleas court.”
Fed. Home Loan Mtge. Corp v. Schwartzwald, 2012 Ohio 5017, 134 Ohio St. 3d 13, 979 N.E.2d 1214 (2012)
