CRL's pleadings and briefs on behalf of the plaintiffs in Jackson v. Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. CRL represents a class of Minnesota homeowners facing foreclosure who allege that MERS' failure to record all transfers in the ownership of their loans before beginning the foreclosure process violates procedural requirements in the state's non-judicial foreclosure statutes concerning the recordation of mortgage assignments. This case was filed in the Minnesota state courts, removed to the U.S. District Court, and certified to the Minnesota Supreme Court.
