Litigation, Real Estate Law

Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems. Inc. v. Carlton J. Ditto, et al


This appeal involves the purchase of property at a tax sale. Mortgage Electronic Registration System (MERS) filed suit against Purchaser to invalidate his purchase of property because it had not received notice of the sale even though it was listed as a beneficiary or nominee on the deed of trust.

The audio of the oral argument in this game is available. 

Purchaser claimed that MERS was not entitled to notice because MERS did not have an interest in the property. Purchaser also alleged that MERS failed to properly commence its lawsuit because it did not remit the proper funds pursuant to Tennessee Code Annotated section 67-5-2504(c).
