Does the Trust Even Exist? Probably Not.

An important issue that everyone should research for their particular state is that is that judicial notice has its limitations. For example in California the court can only take judicial notice of recorded documents, it cannot take judicial notice of said documents if their truth or authenticity is disputed. See Skov v. U.S. Bank National Assn. (2012) 207 Cal.App.4th 690, 696 (where bank sought judicial notice of a notice of default declaration stating compliance with Civ. Code, § 2923.5, whether the bank complied with section 2923.5 is the type of fact that is reasonably subject to dispute, and thus, not a proper subject of judicial notice.)

A matter ordinarily is subject to judicial notice only if it is reasonably beyond dispute. See Fremont Indem. Co. v. Fremont General Corp. (2007) 148 Cal.App. 4th 97, 114-115.

Although the existence of a document may be judicially noticeable, the truth of statements contained in the document and its proper interpretation are not subject to judicial notice if those matters are reasonably disputable. StorMedia, Inc. v. Superior Court (1999) 20 Cal.4th 449, 457, fn. 9.

When judicial notice is taken of a document, however, the truthfulness and proper interpretation of the document are disputable. Joslin v. H.A.S. Ins. Brokerage (1986) 184 Cal. App.3d 369, 374. Joslin v. H.A.S. Ins. Brokerage, supra, 184 Cal.App.3d at page 374 stated: “Taking judicial notice of a document is not the same as accepting the truth of its contents or accepting a particular interpretation of its meaning.

This is an invitation for the Bar associations to take as close a look at foreclosure mills as they do to the low hanging fruit of solo foreclosure defense lawyers who get charged with “foreclosure rescue schemes.”

The biggest mistake we lawyers make is jumping into the middle of a fact pattern instead of starting at the beginning. Most foreclosures involve trusts at some point in the chain. And most trusts do not exist as “legal persons”. Without a legal person there can be no “jural act.” Hence the Court lacks jurisdiction to perform any act other than the ministerial act of dismissing the foreclosure action in judicial states or striking the substitution of trustee, the notice of default and the notice of sale in non-judicial states.

Any recorded document involving a nonexistent legal person should also be removed from the county records.
