It is absurd that the courts before this, the lower courts were granting foreclosures without the proper paperwork.  Regardless off statute of limitations issues, it is obvious looking back that major misconduct, including fraud happened on the part of homeowners and lenders to be fair.  The difference is the lenders were offering the credit and in their rush to make the billions in fees that the entire industry reaped during the “go-go” years, they didn’t set aside time to file the proper paperwork to secure their title to many homes. 

We as the taxpayers stood behind the banks in backing them from insolvency, that was for their favor.   Now, in cases were it shows lenders or subsequent title holders can not produce paperwork, showing legitimate claim on the house.   This should fall in the current homeowners favor.  It can break either way when people are greedy.   If you do not allow this to happen, you really start to show a skewed American system where the big boys get protected from both ends and the little people get taken for a ride on both ends (no pun).
