Arizona Court of Appeals Holds Hearing on Sweep of Foreclosure Settlement Funds

On Monday November 26, the Arizona Court of Appeals heard oral argument on the Special Action filed by the Center challenging the legislature's sweep of $50 million from the Foreclosure Settlement Fund.  The Special Action asks the Court of Appeals to reverse the trial court's ruling that the Consent Judgment that established the "Court Ordered Trust Fund" did not intend to create a trust, and even if it did, the Attorney General did not have the authority to create such a trust. The Court indicated that it would rule on the Center's Petition quickly.
