WI Court of Appeals – District IV
Case Name: The Bank of New York Mellon v. Timothy R. Rumpf
Case No.: 2019AP879
Officials: Blanchard, Graham, and Nashold, JJ.
Focus: Foreclosure – Prima Facie
Timothy Rumpf appeals from a judgment of mortgage foreclosure, which was entered after the circuit court granted summary judgment in favor of the mortgage holder, Bank of New York Mellon (the “Bank”). Rumpf contends that the circuit court erred in granting summary judgment because evidence that the Bank introduced to make its prima facie case is not admissible, and also because there are genuine issues of material fact about Rumpf’s affirmative defenses. We reject both arguments and affirm.
