CRL filed an amicus brief to the New Jersey Supreme Court, advocating for strict compliance with New Jersey’s Fair Foreclosure Act and the federal Truth in Lending Act’s intentional reordering of the common law rescission process to effectuate Congress’s intent that rescission under TILA be a practical tool to save homes from foreclosure. Both statutes play a critical role in preserving homeownership in the face of foreclosure.
