After a wave of foreclosure proceedings hit Long Island during the past several years, a many members of the Suffolk County Bar Association took advantage of learning about advanced foreclosure defense issues by attending a two-part Suffolk Academy of Law seminar entitled “Behind the Curtain:  Advanced Standing Issues in Securitized Mortgage Foreclosure.”
 
The seminars were held on November 19, 2012 and January 14, 2013.  At the first session, attendees learned about the intricacies behind mortgage transfers and assignments.  The second session highlighted various defenses attorneys can assert on behalf of their homeowner-clients.

Long Island bankruptcy judge pierces corporate veil to permit investor in movie about mafia member, to file claim against the individual debtor, even though the debtor had done business through a corporate entity
 
It is basic advice for individuals conducting business to set up a corporate entity to provide a mechanism to limit personal liability in the event the business is not successful. 
 
However, as was demonstrated in this Long Island Chapter 13 bankruptcy case, when the corporate entity is used for illegitimate purposes, the individual should not be permitted to insulate himself from the consequences of his fraudulent conduct.
 
The debtor, Georgios Stamou, in 2009, filed an individual Chapter 13 bankruptcy in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of New York, located in Central Islip.
