Spinner overturned - enforcement of the CPLR 3408 Foreclosure Settlement Conferences' good faith requirement held unauthorized

Appellate Division, Second Department, held in an unsigned ruling that the "severe sanction…was not authorized by any statute or rule…nor was the plaintiff given fair warning that such a sanction was even under consideration." "The reasoning of the Supreme Court that its equitable powers included the authority to cancel the mortgage and note was
erroneous, since there was no acceptable basis for relieving the homeowner of her contractual obligation to the bank," - IndyMac Bank, F.S.B. v. Yano-Horoski, 17926/05.
