ASU Law Helping Homeowners

With mortgage and forclosure issues in the news every day, there’s no doubt that plenty of Arizona homeowners are in need of help. The College of Law has had a busy week lending a hand.

Today the  ASU Family Justice Bus and Homeowner Advocacy Unit are co-sponsoring a Foreclosure Prevention Workshop. And yesterday, third-year law student Kyle Roberston, a student in the Homeowner Advocacy Unit , made news by arguing a case before the Arizona Supreme Court:

The question before the court is whether homeowners can challenge the foreclosing party’s authority to sell their house. Robertson will address issues related to the practical problems that result when homeowners are denied their right to challenge illegal foreclosures in court.
