Punished for trying to fix a flawed mortgage
by Slade Smith | 2014/05/27
A bank lost another mortgage because they made an error in recording their mortgage-- as is all too common, they attached the wrong legal description. However, in this unusual case, the bank caught the error before anybody else and applied to the court to get the incorrect legal description fixed, but a judge still voided it.
In reading the facts of the case, I thought the court got it wrong, resulting in a very unfair decision. See what you think.

Ohio's H.B. 201 Gets My Vote for Worst Bill of the Year
by Robert Franco | 2014/05/06
Yes, I know it is only May. There is still a lot of time for our legislature to really do something stupid (and I'm sure they will), but I'm pretty confident that H.B. 201 will take the award for Worst Bill of the Year for 2014. It seeks to greatly expand and codify equitable subrogation, which I have blogged about before. In 2010, I opined that Equitable Subrogation was an Over-used Remedy for Negligence and I applauded an Ohio Supreme Court decision that limited its applicability. I was particularly pleased with the Court because more than a year earlier I questioned the lower court decision that applied equitable subrogation to bail out the negligent lender.

Check your E&O Insurance
by brian reilly | 2014/03/25
Error and Omission insurance is very expensive. So, if your state does not require it, why get it? It’s simple really—you can’t afford not to. No matter how careful you are or how many times you double check—mistakes are inevitable in every industry. It is human nature. But if you are making decisions that affect other people, high stakes liability can quickly escalate. Suddenly you’re being sued for simple errors that had huge consequences.
Errors and omissions insurance protects you against malpractice claims that could result in bankruptcy. Without it, you could be responsible for enormous fines. Usually insurance will cover monetary damages that you may have caused due to your professional negligence. However, more often than not it will not cover personal injury.
