Bringing California Law Into Focus

Electronic filing has finally arrived in LA County
Beginning on January 2, 2019, the Los Angeles County Superior Court made electronic document filing mandatory in Civil Unlimited cases. The Federal and Bankruptcy Courts already require electronic filing and allow electronic signatures as do many counties in California, including Orange County. 

Why is this important?

Because LA County has the largest population in the US by almost double.

This finally brings the County into the digital age. In my early years, we would dictate client declarations, have secretaries type them, send them to clients for signature by fed x, wait for them to be returned by fed x, blue back the documents and then send a runner down to the court and pray the papers would be filed timely. Now, in many cases, preparation through filing can be done on the same day.

It is a fundamental policy of the State of California that any party engaging in a non-exempt loan transaction must comply with the state law that limits usury. What are the elements of usury under California Law?

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit decided a case in early December of 2018 that decided the following question: when a borrower effectively rescinds a loan under TILA, but the lender takes no action to wind up the loan, when must a borrower file suit to enforce the rescission?

The California Residential Mortgage Lending Act (CRMLA) and the California Financing Law (CFLL), respectively in code sections   Cal. Fin. Code §50318  and  Cal. Fin. Code §22169 , allow the state’s Commissioner of Business Oversight to take action against licensees that violate California law, including provisions of the CRMLA and CFLL. These statutes grant the Commissioner the authority to suspend, bar or censure the licenses of any individual or entity, including residential mortgage lenders, residential mortgage loan servicers, and mortgage loan originators.
