Duces Tecum

An investigative subpoena which compels a bank to produce documents, typically used to prove property ownership. Often, banks are unable to prove ownwrship, due to the fact that many mortgages have been buried in socalled "derivatives", and tracability is lost. This results in Wells Fargo (and others) trying to foreclose on thousands of mortgages that they DO NOT OWN.

Creating this page is a very difficult task. Why?

1. Most reporters are hacks. They fail to address the basic questions who, what, where, why, when, and how.
Who is the plaintiff? Who are the plaintiff attorneys?
What is the Case Number? Rarely given, hugely important.
Where was the action filed? Sometimes, not even the state is given.
Where are the actual, online PDF documents of the court papers?

2. ONE person writes a poor article, and then 100's of others PARROT the misinformation, and non-information. No one bothers to add the actual, crucial details. Mere copycats.

3. The attorneys would do well to PROVIDE COMPLETE DETAILS, on their website, if they want to elicit support for their case. Very few do. The average reader loses interest immediately, because there is no place further to look. Mind-boggling disregard for PR basics.

4. There are MANY more lawsuits against Wells Fargo, but they do not appear here, because I REFUSE to spend hours just trying to get the basic details on a single case. If YOU want to do it, just email me me the links, and I will be happy to include the information.
