• Connecticut Appellate Court
  • Norcott, J.
In its 2011 decision in RMS Residential Properties, LLC v. Miller, the Supreme Court explained that "a holder of a note is presumed to be the owner of the debt, and unless the presumption is rebutted [the holder] may foreclose the mortgage under [C.G.S.] §49-17…." and to the extent that the holding was altered by the Supreme Court's 2013 decision in J.E. Robert Co., Inc. v. Signature Properties LLC, it was inapplicable here because the defendant never attempted to rebut the presumption that the plaintiff owned the debt and had the right to foreclose the mortgage.
