From FoxBusiness: Wells Fargo Bank Sues Itself

(ht Rama)

… I could not resist asking Wells Fargo Bank NA why it filed a civil complaint against itself in a mortgage foreclosure case in Hillsborough County, Fla.

In this particular case, Wells Fargo holds the first and second mortgages on a condominium, according to Sarasota, Fla., attorney Dan McKillop, who represents the condo owner.

As holder of the first, Wells Fargo is suing all other lien holders, including the holder of the second, which is itself.

… court documents clearly label “Wells Fargo Bank NA” as the plaintiff and “Wells Fargo Bank NA” as a defendant.

Wells Fargo hired Florida Default Law Group., P.L., of Tampa, Fla., to file the lawsuit against itself.

And then Wells Fargo hired another Tampa law firm — Kass, Shuler, Solomon, Spector, Foyle & Singer P.A. — to defend itself against its own lawsuit, according to court documents.

Wells Fargo’s defense lawyers even filed an answer to their client’s own complaint.

“Defendant admits that it is the owner and holder of a mortgage encumbering the subject real property,” the answer reads. “All other allegations of the complaint are denied.”

Your TARP money hard at work…

    So they can get it to us “faster”.  


    This one actually scares me.

    July 17, 2009 — Pandemic swine flu vaccine should be fast-tracked, with vaccinations starting in mid-September — soon after schools open.

    That recommendation is expected at today’s meeting of the National Biodefense Safety Board (NBSB), an influential board of outside advisors to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

    Swine Flu Outbreak: Get the Facts

    Getting swine flu vaccine by September means skipping all but the most preliminary clinical tests of vaccine safety and effectiveness.

    “We cannot wait beyond mid-August (to make a decision) if vaccine is to be in supply by mid-September,” the panel’s pandemic influenza working group states in a briefing document. “A critical goal is to have some [standalone] novel H1N1 vaccine available by mid-September 2009, should it be needed.”

    Will it be mandatory?  I’m not letting them stick MY kids with an untested pig flu vaccine.   No fucking way.
