Petition For Review - Texas Supreme Court

PETITION FOR REVIEW

TO THE HONORABLE SUPREME COURT OF TEXAS:
Petitioner, James Allen McGuire, pursuant to Texas Rule of Appellate
Procedure, respectfully submits this Petition for Review seeking review
of the Second District Court of Appeals' opinion in this matter. As set
forth below, this Honorable Court should grant this Petition.

I. STATEMENT OF THE CASE
Nature of the case: This dispute began as a forcible detainer action
initiated by a party not having lawful standing to invoke a trial courts
jurisdiction. Petitioner (Appellant) filed a general denial and a Motion to
Dismiss for want of standing to invoke the courts jurisdiction. The
justice court opined in favor of Appellee. The court without jurisdiction
awarded possession of real property to Appellee. Appellant timely
appealed the judgment to the County Court at Law One, Tarrant
County, Texas. This court also lacking jurisdiction also awarded
possession of real property to Appellee relying upon an unproven
Substitute Trustee Deed unlawfully filed of recorded by Appellee as the
sole evidence to grant possession. Appellant timely perfected an Appeal
to the Second Court of Appeals at Fort Worth, Texas. Appellant noticed
in written letter (Appendix, Exhibit H) the Appellate Court that the trial
courts records where inaccurate, this inaccuracy would have shown that
the trial court was aware that the evidence may have been tainted, but
such fact was removed from the record supplied to the Court of Appeals.
Upon notice being sent by Appellee of such error to the Court of Appeals,
the appeal court then requested a response from Appellee concerning the
incorrect trial courts record who objected to a true and correct copy of the
record be proved up. The appeal court sided with Appellee (Appendix,
Appeal Page 6


Exhibit D); therefore Appellants rely upon a non-true and non-correct
copy of the trial courts record and as such, Appellee was denied a
guaranteed constitutional right.

Opinion of the panel: The panel that decided the case and affirmed the
trial court was composed of Justices Livingston, C.J., Gardner and
Gabriel, JJ. Upon the court of appeals rendering judgment issued in
opinion on 22 March 2012. On March 27, 2012, Appellant was left with
no option but to appeal to the Texas Supreme Court for the benefit of all
citizens of Texas as the side effect of the appeals courts civil ruling would
create havoc in regards to TEXAS CODE OF CRIMINAL
PROCEDURE, Title 1.
II. STATEMENT OF JURISDICTION
1. The Supreme Court has jurisdiction over this appeal under Texas
Government Code 22.001(a)(6) because the court of appeals has
committed errors of law of such importance to the state's jurisprudence
that they should be corrected. See Tex. Gov't Code 22.001(a)(6); Tex. R.
App. P. 56.1(a)(5), (6); Randall's Food Mkts., Inc. v. Johnson, 891 S.W.2d
640, 643 (Tex.1995)
2. The Supreme Court has jurisdiction over this appeal under
Government Code 22.001(a)(2) because the court of appeals decision
conflicts with this Court's decision in the following:
(A) These statutes created a right not existing at common law and
prescribed a remedy to enforce the right. Thus, the courts . . . [only
have jurisdiction according to the rules] provided by the statute
Appeal Page 7

Petition For Review - Texas Supreme Court

which created the right." See, e.g., Bullock v. Amoco Production Co.,
608 S.W.2d 899, 901 (Tex. 1980).
(B) Statutory provisions are mandatory and exclusive and must be
complied with in all respects." e.g. Employees Ret. Sys. of Tex. v.
Blount, 709 S.W.2d 646, 647 (Tex. 1986).
(C) Subject-matter jurisdiction is fundamental and may be raised for
the first time on appeal. See Tex. Ass'n of Bus. v. Tex. Air Control
Bd., 852 S.W.2d 440, 445 (Tex.1993).
(D) Subject-matter jurisdiction is a question of law, subject to de novo
review. Tex. Dep't of Parks & Wildlife v. Miranda, 133 S.W.3d 217,
226 (Tex.2004)
(E) Texas Catastrophe Property Insurance Association v. Council of
Co-Owner of Saida II Towers Condominium Association, 706 S.W.2d
644 (Tex. 1986). ("because relevant cause of action derives from
statute, not common law, statutory provisions are mandatory and
exclusive and must be complied with in all respects'")
III. ISSUES PRESENTED FOR REVIEW

1) The Second Court of Appeals committed an error of such
magnitude, such order as written has the potential for the citizens of
Texas to be deprived of constitutional rights and loss of faith in the
judicial system.
The Preamble to the Texas Judicial Canons states in part:
Preamble
Our legal system is based on the principle that an independent, fair and
competent judiciary will interpret and apply the laws that govern us. The
role of the judiciary is central to American concepts of justice and the rule
of law. Intrinsic to all sections of this Code of Judicial Conduct are the
Appeal Page 8


precepts that judges, individually and collectively, must respect and
honor the judicial office as a public trust and strive to enhance and
maintain confidence in our legal system.

Courts that rely upon Rice v Pinney and its derivatives defy in logic
what is lodged into law
1
and potentially could provide that the state is
liable for actions of an individual acting in an official capacity to take
such property, but I would rather fathom such justice(s) would be held
easier accountable in their personal capacity:

Where a citizen is prohibited from filing a criminal complaint due to law
enforcement not willing to accept such criminal complaint, one is
deprived of a guaranteed constitutional right. All facts report that only
law enforcement officials can file, i.e. AO-91, criminal complaint with the
federal courts.

TEX CR. CODE ANN. 47.01a : Texas Statutes - Article 47.01A:
RESTORATION WHEN NO TRIAL IS PENDING
(a) If a criminal action relating to allegedly stolen property is not
pending, a district judge, county court judge, statutory county court
judge, or justice of the peace having jurisdiction as a magistrate in the
county in which the property is held or a municipal judge having
jurisdiction as a magistrate in the municipality in which the property is
being held may hold a hearing to determine the right to possession of the
property, upon the petition of an interested person, a county, a city, or the
state.
Added by Acts 1977, 65th Leg., p. 2034, ch. 813, Sec. 1, eff. Aug. 29, 1977.
Amended by Acts 1987, 70th Leg., ch. 548, Sec. 1, eff. Aug. 31, 1987; Acts
1993, 73rd Leg., ch. 860, Sec. 1, eff. Aug. 30, 1993; Subsec. (a) amended
by Acts 1995, 74th Leg., ch. 184, Sec. 3, eff. May 23, 1995.

2) The Second Court of Appeals did commit a grave error when not
opining on all points appellant raised, including facts filed of court record

1
Appellant does not address property that has a per se government mandated licensing requirement
such as for automobile.
Appeal Page 9

Petition For Review - Texas Supreme Court

that a fraud has been committed against a trial court, not by testimony,
but by admission into the courts record and such admission was by the
Appellee; the public could only view this non-addressing of an issue as a
criminal act to conceal a fraud and as such Article V, 1-a (6) A of the
Texas Constitution would come to bear as well as violation under 18
USC. Petitioner will not speculate as to why notice of such criminal
actions was not addressed. Again, such actions have the potential for
citizens to lose faith in the judicial system. Failure to properly opine in
accordance to law in this instant suit could only be seen as a violation of
the Texas Judicial Canons, amongst others, and the record provides no
escape from:

TEX CR. CODE ANN. 38.18 : Texas Statutes - Article 38.18:
PERJURY AND AGGRAVATED PERJURY
(a) No person may be convicted of perjury or aggravated perjury if proof
that his statement is false rests solely upon the testimony of one witness
other than the defendant.
(b) Paragraph (a) of this article does not apply to prosecutions for perjury
or aggravated perjury involving inconsistent statements.
Acts 1965, 59th Leg., vol. 2, p. 317, ch. 722. Amended by Acts 1973, 63rd
Leg., p. 973, ch. 399, Sec. 2(A), eff. Jan. 1, 1974.

In referencing Respondent State of Texass Brief on the Merits that is
before this court in Larry York D/B/A York Tank Trucks (Petitioner) v
State of Texas (Respondent) as Cause No. 09-0905 submitted by Greg
Abbott, Attorney General Abbott of Texas appears to be acting for the
best interest of the citizens of Texas as noting the opinion authored by
the Second Court of Appeals is in error.

When the Texas Attorney General steps forward to protect the interest of
millions of Texas citizens from errors made by appellate courts, it could
only be thought of that faith in the court is in dire state of distrust. Many
a learned in the legal profession has said always hold your cards tight to
the vest. Maybe it makes legal sense but logically it lacks, as an author, I
Appeal Page 10


have released hundreds of writings which explain the civil and criminal
fraud surrounding todays financial fiasco. Some in academia have made
notice to the public that such writings might be of interest to readers. At
last extrapolation, the number of readers is in the million with half of
readership being that of foreign nationality.
IX. STATEMENT OF FACTS
The court of appeals identifies the issue incorrectly as a forcible detainer
action begun by a lawful entitled party. As the appellate court opined,
"In a forcible detainer action, the only issue the trial court determines is
whether the party seeking to obtain possession is entitled to actual and
immediate possession, and the merits of whether a party has title shall
not be determined. See Tex. R. Civ. P. 746; Black v. Wash. Mut. Bank, 318
S.W.3d 414, 416 (Tex. App.-Houston [1st Dist.] 2010, pet. dism'd w.o.j.);
Williams v. Bank of N. Y. Mellon, 315 S.W.3d 925, 927 (Tex. App.-Dallas
2010, no pet.), herein, is entitled, this short partial fact alone provides
that only an entitled party is permitted to file a forcible detainer. In this
instant suit, there is currently and never again will be a party entitled.
The court furthers opined in error: To the extent that McGuire complains
of defects in the foreclosure process, he may pursue that complaint in
district court, but it may not be considered in this action. See Shutter, 318
S.W.3,d at 471; Williams, -315 S.W.3d at 927 (citing Scott, 127 Tex. at
35,90 S.W.2d at 818-19). Appellant argued as per the opinion: he
disputes, in essence, only whether the seller had the authority to sell the
property to Fannie Mae in the first place. Herein, the courts opinion
conflicts with criminal prosecution under Title 47 of the Criminal Code:
Thus, Chapter 47 requires both (1) a determination whether there is
probable cause that the item was illegally obtained and [Then Step 2]
This twisting of words and truth add to the disdain of the people to have
faith in the judicial system. As this instant suit was civil in nature, the
opinion rendered by the Court of Appeals has a byproduct of upending
decades of criminal law in essence saying a thief in possession of stolen
Appeal Page 11

Petition For Review - Texas Supreme Court

property cannot be prosecuted until the unlawful seller is under
prosecution and until such time, a criminal has right to possession. By
the time an innocent party could retrieve the receipts to prove a crime,
the cake would spoil and such the lawful owner would have been
deprived of what he legally owned. Herein, the rights of the cake thief
exceed the rights of the lawful owner. Where a court refuses to hear
evidence presented by an owner proving theft deprives the owner of a
constitutional rights that ownership grants. If such court is restricted
from hearing such evidence, then constitutional rights of owners have
been violated. This court has the authority and the duty to the people to
see that laws are written in a constitutional manner and the lower courts
follow constitutional rights the people are entitled too. Herein, this
instant suit, the rights granted under the constitution and by due
process of law were violated.
V.SUMMARY OF THE ARGUMENT
This dispute began as a forcible detainer action by a party not lawfully
entitled to possession filing a suit for forcible detainer. Petitioner
(Appellant) filed a general denial. The judgment of the justice court
signed a judgment in favor of the Appellee. The court awarded possession
of real property to Appellee. The Appellant timely appealed the
judgment to the County Court at Law One, Tarrant County, Texas. This
court also awarded possession of real property to Appellant relying upon
a false Substitute Trustee Deed filed of recorded by Appellant. Appellant
timely perfected an Appeal to the Second Court of Appeals at Fort Worth
which found trial court decision was not in error, Texas and timely files
this Petition for Review with the Texas Supreme Court. If such party had
a lawful right to file suit for forcible detainer then such order by the court
may have been found valid, but this is not the facts in this case.
Appeal Page 12


Many of the background facts written in the opinion are based on
allegations and not of evidence introduced. The fact is, tortuous acts
were committed by the alleged seller of the real property. It is
unfortunate that the Appellee was not aware of the precise legal issues.
However, Appellee was aware of legal implication and thus could not
claim a right of being an innocent purchaser. The Court of Appeals did
correctly notice that Appellee has legal remedies available to pursue
under other legal action, a right to clear the clouds appearing upon title
to property. This factor alone should have been sufficient to prevent
Appellee from taking property that rightfully belongs to the Appellant.
The court of appeals neglected to take into account that the jurisdiction
of the appellate court is contingent upon the jurisdiction of the trial court
and that the trial court's jurisdiction is contingent upon the jurisdiction
of the justice court. Crumpton v. Stevens, 936 S.W.2d 473, 476
(Tex.App.-Fort Worth 1996, no writ) (The appellate jurisdiction of a
statutory county court is confined to the jurisdictional limits of the
justice court, and the county court has no jurisdiction over an appeal
unless the justice court had jurisdiction.) As the Appellate Court was
limited in taking legal actions which should have been reversing the
lower courts ruling and dismissing the case for want of jurisdiction. The
Second Court of Appeal failed in its duty to follow law, violated Appellant
Constitutional Rights which led to this appeal being brought forward to
this court.
VI. ARGUMENT
1: The petitioner hereby incorporates by reference petitioner's appeal
brief submitted to the Second District Court of Appeals (Appendix
Exhibit B), petitioners reply brief submitted to the Second District Court
Appeal Page 13

Petition For Review - Texas Supreme Court

of Appeals (Appendix Exhibit C) and the Second District Court of
Appeals Opinion (Appendix Exhibit A).
Opining, the court of appeals overruled the petitioner's first issue as if
the petitioner had argued a claim to title. The court of appeals' misread
the facts presented and penned an opinion that appeared to be based
upon an argument not raised by Appellant.
"The demand for possession must be made in writing by a person
entitled (emphasis added) to possession of the property and must
comply with the requirements for notice to vacate under Section 24.005."
Tex. Prop. Code Ann. 24.002(b) (Vernon 2000). The word "entitled"
creates or recognizes a condition precedent, Tex. Gov't Code 311.016(3).
In the instant case the Appellee did not satisfy conditions precedent prior
to the filing of the forcible detainer action in the justice court; secondly,
Appellee would never be able to satisfy the conditions precedent.
2: The court of appeals did not address the challenge to the jurisdiction of
the trial court to convene a hearing or trial on the issue of possession. See
Tex. R. App. P. 47.1 Tex. R. Civ. P. 21, 21a, 753 Issue 1 and Issue 2 are
indeed challenges to the jurisdiction of the lower courts but that is where
the similarity ends. The justice court and the trial court did not acquire
subject matter jurisdiction as discussed above. Tex. Prop. Code
24.005(f). The trial court convened the trial or hearing in the complete
absence of jurisdiction. See Tex. R. Civ. P. 21, 21a.


VII. PRAYER
Appeal Page 14


For the reasons stated in this petition, petitioner, James Allen McGuire,
respectfully asks this Honorable Court to grant this petition for review.
Petitioner also requests this court order law enforcement to investigate
all criminal activity that is presented in the Appellants Briefs and
concealment of fraud covered up by the opinion penned by the Second
Court of Appeals.
Lest of pray that this court has not lost sight of rights found in the
United States Constitution:
Preamble
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more
perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility,
provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and
secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do
ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of
America.
For if sight is lost; then faith is lost.
Respectfully Submitted,

JURISDICTION
This court has jurisdiction pursuant to Texas Government Code Sec.22.220,
Texas Government Code 74.04174.062, Texas Government Code.
JUDICIAL NOTICE
Appellant received from the Second Court of Appeals the records of the trial courts
on December 11, 2011. Page 5 of Volume 1 of the Reporters Record [R, V1, pg
5], the Court Reporter notes that the Reporters transcription is a true and correct
copy of the oral argument held before the trial court. In fact, the transcription has
omissions of critical words spoken by the trial court judge where such omission is
detriment to Appellants appeal.

The trial courts record also show an omission of Appellant filing of a Motion to
Dismiss to the Justice Court where service was rendered upon Lauren Christoffel,
Bar I.D. # 24065045, 15000 Surveyor Blvd, Suite #100, Addison, Texas 75001 on
May 11, 2011 by U S Mail. [Exhibit A]

Appellant can only consider these known errors as willful actions to deny the
Appellant due process to law and this court should consider the matter as being
severe acts of injustice and possibly criminal and take appropriate action for the
preservation of justice.

However, Appellant has filed this Brief based on the inaccuracies of the record and
whereas the court finds the records are of error, this court, if required, should allow
Appellant to file an Amended Brief based on true and correct copies of the record.

STATEMENT OF THE CASE
Appellee without legal Standing filed with the Justice Court a Forcible
Detainer action, (CR, p. 2). Appellant filed a General Denial and a Motion to
Dismiss (Exhibit A) the suit as Appellees lacked standing to invoke the Justice
Courts and the trial courts jurisdiction. Appellant was forced to file an appeal to
Justice Court to the County Court (CR, p.79) and ultimately to this court Second
Court of Appeal.
STATEMENT ON ORAL ARGUMENT
Appellant requests Oral Argument

ISSUE PRESENTED
Whether the trial court erred in incurring jurisdiction where Appellee lacked
standing to invoke the trial courts jurisdiction?


Page 8 Appeal Page 24

STATEMENT OF FACTS
1. Federal National Mortgage Association filed in Tarrant County Public
Records an ineligible and unlawful Substitute Trustees Deed (CR, p.7)
conveying equitable title ownership away from Appellant.
2. Federal National Mortgage Association without lawful standing filed a
Forcible Detainer suit against Appellant as a tenant in the Justice Court.
3. Appellant argued the Justice Court was without jurisdiction and timely
appealed the Justice Courts opinion (CR, p. 20) to the County Court of Law.
4. Appellant argued jurisdiction before the County Court of Law and Appellant
further appealed to this court the trial courts improper acceptance of
jurisdiction.
5. The trial courts erred in entering an order (CR, p. 75) as Appellees were
without standing to invoke the trial courts jurisdiction. The trial court
lacking jurisdiction is incapable of rendering any opinion.
6. Appellant timely filed a notice of appeal with this court.
SUMMARY OF THE ARGUMENT
First error, the Trial Court erred by issuing a ruling based on an improper
acceptance of a ineligible filed claim to equitable title as being colorable and
extending jurisdiction to a party that lacked standing.
Second error, the Trial Court was made aware that legal and equitable title disputes
existed and relied upon a ineligible instrument as being close enough colorable
Page 9 Appeal Page 25

claim to title; this rendered the court without jurisdiction and as such reliance was
placed upon an ineligible instrument for determination and should be considered a
decision upon issues of title.
Facts entered into public and court records clearly show that claims made to title
by Appellant are not factual.
ARGUMENT
Standing: Legal Principles
1. For a court to invoke its authority, the court must have been given jurisdiction
by a party that has legal standing. Tex. Natural Res. Conservation Commn
v. ITDavy, 74 S.W.3d 849, 855 (Tex. 2002); see Mayhew v. Town of
Sunnyvale, 964 S.W.2d 922, 928 (Tex. 1998). Standing is a component of
subject-matter jurisdiction. Tex. Assn of Bus. v. Tex. Air Control Bd., 852
S.W.2d 440, 44546 (Tex. 1993); see also DaimlerChrysler Corp. v. Inman,
252 S.W.3d 299, 304 (Tex. 2008) (A court has no jurisdiction over a
claim made by a plaintiff without standing to assert it.). If a party lacks
standing to bring an action, the trial court lacks subject-matter jurisdiction to
hear the case. Tex. Assn of Bus., 852 S.W.2d at 44445.

2. The issue of Standing focuses on the question of who may bring an action.
Patterson v. Planned Parenthood, 971 S.W.2d 439, 442 (Tex. 1998). The
general test for standing is whether there is a real controversy between the
parties that will actually be determined by the judgment sought. Tex. Assn
of Bus., 852 S.W.2d at 446. To establish standing, a person must show a
personal stake in the controversy. In re B.I.V., 923 S.W.2d 573, 574 (Tex.
1996).
Page 10 Appeal Page 26


3. Standing to sue may be predicated upon either statutory or common law
authority. Nauslar v. Coors Brewing Co., 170 S.W.3d 242, 252 (Tex.
App.Dallas 2005, no pet.); see Williams v. Lara, 52 S.W.3d 171, 17879
(Tex. 2001). The common law standing rules apply except when standing is
statutorily conferred. SCI Tex. Funeral Servs., Inc. v. Hijar, 214 S.W.3d 148,
153 (Tex. App.El Paso 2007, pet. denied).

4. The court must look to the substance of a motion or a pleading, rather than its
caption or format, to determine the nature of the filing. See State Bar of Tex.
v. Heard, 603 S.W.2d 829, 833 (Tex. 1980) (explaining that - we look to the
substance of a plea for relief to determine the nature of the pleading, not
merely at the form of title given to it).

5. During the pendency of an action involving title to real property, the
establishment of an interest in real property, or the enforcement of an
encumbrance against real property, a party seeking affirmative relief may
file a lis pendens in the real property records of the county where the
property is located. TEX. PROP. CODE ANN. 12.007(a) (Vernon 2004).

6. Generally speaking, the purpose of lis pendens notice is twofold: (1) to protect
the filing partys alleged rights to the property that is in dispute in the
lawsuit and (2) to put those interested in the property on notice of the
lawsuit. See World Sav. Bank, F.S.B. v. Gantt, 246 S.W.3d 299, 303 (Tex.
App.Houston [14th Dist.] 2008, no pet.); see also Countrywide Home
Page 11 Appeal Page 27

Loans, Inc. v. Howard, 240 S.W.3d 1, 4 (Tex. App.Austin 2007, pet.


denied).

7. A lis pendens does not prevent conveyance; it merely puts the purchaser on
notice as to the status of the land. See Collins v. Tex Mall, L.P., 297 S.W.3d
409, 418 (Tex. App.Fort Worth 2009, no pet.) as such, Appellant did not
file such.

8. We may consider evidence that the parties have submitted and must do so
when necessary to resolve the jurisdictional issues. Bland Indep. Sch. Dist.
v. Blue, 34 S.W.3d 547, 555 (Tex. 2000)
9. In a plea to the jurisdiction, a party may present evidence to negate the
existence of a jurisdictional fact alleged in the pleadings, which we would
otherwise presume to be true. Miranda, 133 S.W.3d at 227; see also Combs
v. Entertainment Publns, Inc., 292 S.W.3d 712, 719 (Tex. App.Austin
2009, no pet.).

10. The U.S. Constitution and the Texas Constitution require parties to have
standing to bring a claim in court, and the general test is whether there is a
controversy between the parties that will actually be determined by the
judicial declaration sought. Stop the Ordinances Please v. City of New
Braunfels, 306 S.W.3d 919, 925 (Tex. App.Austin 2010, no pet.) (Citing
Texas Assn of Bus., 852 S.W.2d at 446).

Page 12 Appeal Page 28

11. Standing focuses on the question of who may bring an action. Patterson v.
Planned Parenthood, 971 S.W.2d 439, 442 (Tex. 1998). The general test for
standing is whether there is a real controversy between the parties that will
actually be determined by the judgment sought. Tex. Assn of Bus., 852
S.W.2d at 446. -To establish standing, a person must show a personal stake
in the controversy. In re B.I.V., 923 S.W.2d 573, 574 (Tex. 1996).

12. Standard of review: A plea to the jurisdiction challenges a trial courts
authority to decide a specific cause of action. See Texas Dept of Parks &
Wildlife v. Miranda, 133 S.W.3d 217, 225-26 (Tex. 2004).
Secured Party UCC

13. Whereas, approximately 3 years ago, the 141
st
Judicial District Court granted
Summary Judgment in favor of Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. [Exhibit B], two
facts are of court record. [In Re: James McGuire v. Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.,
141
st
District Court, Cause No. 141-223599-07], 1) A Lost Note Affidavit
[Exhibit C] was accepted by the court as substitution for the wet ink
negotiable instrument; 2) Federal National Mortgage Association was not
adjudicated as the owner of Appellants negotiable instrument and as such
could not ever become a subsequent secured party or beneficiary of a lien
securing such lost instrument.

a. Practice for lending monies to purchase real property requires a financial
instrument (note) to be executed as a promise for the borrower to repay the
Noteholder.
Page 13 Appeal Page 29

b. Parties to a note would be the maker (Payor, Obligor) making the instrument
payable to a Payee/Obligee
c. To protect and assure the Lender (Obligee, Secured Party, SP1 when the note is
secured by a lien) will be repaid, the Obligee noted on the face of the note
normally requires the Obligor to offer additional collateral (security) such as
attaching a Deed of Trust (lien) to the instrument thereby making the Obligee
the Original Secured Party (SP1) and thus you have the creation of a Secured
Note perfected in a Secured Partys name.
d. A Deed of Trust is that only of a lien providing security to a note.
e. The two principle parties appearing on a valid lien would be the Obligor as
noted on the face of the note (Grantor on the lien) and the Obligee as noted on
the face of the note would be the Original Secured Party [SP1} (Grantee on the
lien).
f. Where the note and lien are concurrently signed at closing, the lien would
attach to the note and temporary perfection of the lien would be perfected in
SP1s name according to law.
g. The lien is then required by law to be filed of public record resulting in
temporary perfection becoming a permanently perfected lien filed of record in
Secured Partys (SP1) name.
h. Note: Texas Recording Statutes do not require filing of record. Legal
requirement to file are noted under other state statutes.
i. As stated, Obligor of the note is identified within the lien as the Grantor and the
Obligee is noted to be the Grantee (Secured Party SP1).
j. To further market the Secured Note beyond origination, the Secured Note must
meet the requirements of being a negotiable instrument as defined by the UCC
or the states equivalence.
Page 14 Appeal Page 30

k. Where Secured Party (SP1) elects to negotiate the Secured Note to a


subsequent Secured Party (SP2) under UCC or BCC, the Secured Party can
elect to sell the Secured Negotiable Note by indorsement or in blank.
l. Where the Secured Negotiable Note is sold and negotiated by Secured Party
(SP1) by indorsement, the subsequent Secured Party purchaser (SP2) takes the
Secured Negotiable Note with the lien being temporary perfected in the
Secured Partys (SP2) name, the Secured Party owning such Secured
Negotiable Note identity would be known by completing the negotiation by
identifying itself (Secured Party - SP2) as the Indorsee.
m. Thusly, the Indorsee (Secured Party - SP2) now noted on the face of the
Secured Negotiable Note has also been conveyed lien rights in a temporary
perfected status.
n. Indorsee (Secured Party - SP2) under the Recording Statutes then may take the
legal steps to permanently perfect the liens conveyance in SP2s name by filing
of record. However, other state statutes mandate the assignment of the lien
must be filed of record.
o. However, if SP2 fails to timely file of record a conveyance of ownership right
to the lien to convert temporary perfection into a permanent perfection, the lien
would expire by operation of law. Failure to Permanently Perfect.
p. Herewith, the recording of an ownership interest in real property title is
required by Texas Local Government Code 192.001.
1

q. Any change of ownership interest in real property title (legal or equitable)
requires notice of change of ownership interest to be filed of record per Texas
Local Government Code 192.007.
2

1
192.001. GENERAL ITEMS. The county clerk shall record each deed, mortgage, or other instrument that is
required or permitted by law to be recorded.

2
192.007. RECORDS OF RELEASES AND OTHER ACTIONS. (a) To release, transfer, assign, or take another
action relating to an instrument that is filed, registered, or recorded in the office of the county clerk, a person must
file, register, or record another instrument relating to the action in the same manner as the original instrument was
required to be filed, registered, or recorded.

Page 15 Appeal Page 31

r. Additionally, to file an instrument of record, the instrument must be eligible for


recording as per Texas Property Code 11.001.
3

s. Where an Indorsee (Subsequent Purchaser-Subsequent Secured Party) noted on
the face of the note fails to timely perfect the conveyance of the lien into their
name as a subsequent Secured Party, the lien would expire by operation of law.
t. Where there are multiple subsequent purchasers of a secured negotiable note,
each subsequent purchaser in turn, as Indorsee would need to file of record,
notice of conveyance of legal title to allow the secured negotiable note to
remain a Secured Note and perfected in each subsequent Secured Partys
(Subsequent Purchaser) name.
u. Where a party neither appears in the chain of the notes indorsements as
Obligee/Indorsee nor in the chain of title as a Secured Party/Grantee filed of
record, a filing of an instrument by a non Secured Party is only that of a wild
deed and would not create a colorable claim to title, legal or equitable.
v. As an execution of a Deed of Trust is action taken by the Obligor/Grantor in
granting collateral to a Secured Party, the Obligor/Grantor grants legal title to a
Trustee while Obligor retains equitable title to the real property. Equitable title
gives the Obligor the rights to enjoyment of the property.
w. Where a Grantor grants to a Trustee legal title to real property via a lien, a
Trustee is without legal capacity to act on any action affecting legal title except
for that of Secured Party filed of record.
x. As there are only three parties to a Deed of Trust, 1 [Grantor under the Deed of
Trust and Obligor under a Secured Note], 2 [Grantee under the Deed of Trust
and Obligee under a Secured Note] and the 3 [Trustee as noted on the face of
the Deed of Trust.] Therefore, names such as Mortgagee, MERS as
Nominee for Lender and Lenders Successors and Assigns and Beneficiary
could only be representative of a Secured Party of a perfected lien.

3
11.001. PLACE OF RECORDING. (a) To be effectively recorded, an instrument relating to real property
must be eligible for recording and must be recorded in the county in which a part of the property is located.

Page 16 Appeal Page 32

y. Where a Deed of Trust is lawfully conveyed by lawful negotiation of the


Secured Note, the Secured Party that was the Indorser of the Secured Note
should be noted in public records Grantor/Grantee indexing as the Assignor of
the lien.
z. The subsequent Indorsee which is the subsequent Secured Party would be noted
in Grantor/Grantee indexing as the Assignee.
aa. By reasons of logic and law, only a Secured Party being of that as the same
name as the Assignee filed of record could become the owner of lien rights
secured to the Secured Party if such lien is properly conveyed and subsequently
timely perfected in a subsequent purchasers (subsequent Secured Partys)
name.
bb. Where a note is secured by a perfected lien, such note would be considered to
be a Secured Note. Regardless of possession, only the owner of the Secured
Note as Secured Party filed of record would havr rights to enforce the Secured
Note. For a Secured Note, a Secured Partys right would extend to the security
(Deed of Trust - lien) securing the Secured Note if perfection remains valid.
cc. Where a Secured Note is to be sold by the original Obligee SP1 to a subsequent
purchaser Obligee SP2, the Secured Note must also meet the legal requirements
of the Texas Business and Commerce Code/UCC to be that of a Negotiable
Instrument.
dd. A Lost Note Affidavit does not meet the legal requirements of the Uniform
Commercial Code or the Texas Business and Commerce Code to be that of a
Negotiable Instrument.
ee. Under Texas law, to convey collateral (Deed of Trust lien) securing a Secured
Negotiable Note to a subsequent Secured Party requires perfection of the lien to
be filed of record in the subsequent purchasers name (SPx).
ff. Whereas if the second Secured Party (SP2) fails to timely permanently perfect a
conveyance of lien rights into the second Partys name (P2), the second Party
(P2) then fails to remain a Secured Party (SP) and where such status is void,
Page 17 Appeal Page 33

any future assignment to convey lien rights from the second Party (P2) to
subsequent Purchasers 3, 4, etc would be void ab initio as the second Secured
Party (SP2) failed to comply with laws governing perfection and only
negotiated a unsecured note.
gg. As the Texas Property Code only provides who as an agent can execute legal
actions and when, other Texas laws proscribe that only a Secured Party filed of
record has any legal authority to invoke any power contained within a valid
lien.
hh. In todays mortgage world, the buying and selling of Mortgage Servicing it is
not uncommon, thus it would not be difficult to see a number of subsequent
Mortgage Servicers claiming to be the Mortgagee of a lien.
ii. Where a Mortgagee claims to be the Mortgagee of a lien, that claim lacks
sufficient legal definition to identify the Mortgagee as a Secured Party.
jj. Similarly, where a claim is made by one to be that of a subsequent Beneficiary
of a lien, that claim lacks sufficient legal definition to identify a claimed
subsequent Beneficiary is a Secured Party.

Equitable Legal Title
14. The court states in part; The only thing the Plaintiff has to show is color of
title. [RR,V2,pg 8, Line 13-14]
15. Appellee in submitting into evidence, Appellants Deed of Trust [RR,
Exhibit 1] notes ownership of equitable title was in the Appellant name and
owner of legal title by means of the Deed of Trust lien was not in Appellees
name.
16. The evidence submitted by Appellees clearly shows Appellant was the
equitable owner of title and Appellees now claim in this suit they are the
equitable owner of title. Whereas, it can be seen that Appellant and Appellee
Page 18 Appeal Page 34

have a dispute involving equitable title, a forcible detainer action must be


abated until issue of equitable title ownership has been resolved.
17. Under the principles of Nemo Dat, whereas a party is not a bona fide holder
of valid perfected legal title (lien holder) and not being a secured party of
record would not be able to convey a greater right to a subsequent party.
18. There is nothing filed of public record or submitted into court evidence that
would support ownership of legal title by virtue of the Deed of Trust was
ever conveyed to Appellee so as to become a secured party to any
indebtedness.
19. In Re: A Purported Lien or Claim Against James McGuire (Cause No. 02-
11-00140-CV, Court of Appeals, Second District of Texas), Wells Fargo
Banks, N.A. response filed of record as of July 6, 2011 with the Second
Court of Appeals claims Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. is the current owner and
holder of the lien documents, but there is no claim that Wells Fargo Bank,
N.A. was a secured party to an indebtedness. [Exhibit E]


20. Barrett Daffin Frappier Turner & Engel, LLP postal letter dated March
07,2011 claims that Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. is the Mortgagee of the lien
[Exhibit D], makes no claim as to be a secured party of record:

Page 19 Appeal Page 35

21. Barrett Daffin Frappier Turner & Engel, LLP postal letter dated April 25,
2011 further confounds issue of title by claiming Federal National Mortgage
Association is the beneficiary named on the lien. This exhibit does not note
Appellant is a secured party of record. [RR, V3, Exhibit 3]


22. As the 141
st
District Court opined only a Lost Note Affidavit exists, it is a
legal impossibility that Wells Fargo Bank N.A. could have negotiated a non
negotiable Lost Note Affidavit to Federal National Mortgage Association
between March 7, 2011 and April 25, 2011 and filed of record a conveyance
of any rights to legal title to that of Federal National Mortgage Association
to allow Federal National Mortgage Association to be a Secured Party of
record..

23. Tarrant County public records reflect a filing of a Substitute Trustees Deed,
[RR, V3, Exhibit 2] by Appellee as an attempt to convey equitable title from
Appellant to Federal National Mortgage Association without any legal
authority to execute such conveyance of equitable title. As public records
reflect that Federal National Mortgage Association was not a secured party
of record, the Substitute Trustees Deed should be considered a wild deed
without force.

24. Tarrant County property records are devoid of any notice of an assignment
of lien Deed of Trust being timely assigned and perfected in Federal
National Mortgage Association name as to be a secured party to any
indebtedness.
Page 20 Appeal Page 36

SUMMATION
Federal National Mortgage Association filed with the trial court a claim to
possession of Appellants equitable rights to real property by executing a unlawful
legal title action by means of unlawfully filing a Substitute Trustees Deed
[Exhibit] in Tarrant County property records and whereas Wells Fargo Bank N.A.
in the Second Court of Appeals has made claim to legal title and whereas
Appellant has disputed both claims, a dispute of title exists between two parties
claiming legal title and the Appellant claims to equitable title. These title conflicts
alone would deny the justice court jurisdiction to determine who has the right to
immediate possession until issues of title, legal and equitable are resolved by a
court of competent jurisdiction.
A forcible detainer action is the procedure by which the right to immediate possession of real
property is determined. See Cattin v. Highpoint Village Apartments, 26 S.W.3d 737, 738-39
(Tex. App.Fort Worth 2000, pet. dismd w.o.j.). It is a special proceeding governed by
particular statutes and rules found in sections 24.001 to 24.011 of the Texas Property Code
and Texas Rules of Civil Procedure 738 to 755. See id. at 739. Forcible detainer actions are
intended to be a summary, speedy, and inexpensive remedy for resolving the question of who
is entitled to immediate possession of real property. See id.; see also Ward v. Malone, 115
S.W.3d 267, 270 (Tex. App.Corpus Christi 2003, pet. denied). Rule 746 provides that the
only issue shall be as to the right to actual possession [,] and the merits of the title shall not
be adjudicated. TEX. R. CIV. P. 746; Rice v. Pinney, 51 S.W.3d 705, 709 (Tex. App.
Dallas 2001, no pet.). Thus, to prevail in a forcible detainer action, a plaintiff is not required
to prove title but is only required to show sufficient evidence of ownership to demonstrate a
superior right to immediate possession. See Ward, 115 S.W.3d at 270; Goggins v. Leo, 849
S.W.2d 373, 377 (Tex. App.Houston [14th Dist.] 1993, no writ).

Page 21 Appeal Page 37

Jurisdiction over a forcible detainer suit is given to a justice court in the precinct where the
property is located. TEX. PROP. CODE ANN. 24.004 (Vernon 2000); Aguilar v. Weber, 72
S.W.3d 729, 731 (Tex. App.Waco 2002, no pet.).

A court has jurisdiction over the subject matter of a claim only if the claimant has
standing to assert the claim. Joachim, 315 S.W.3d at 865. The issue of standing focuses
on whether a party has a sufficient relationship with the lawsuit so as to have a
justiciable interest in its outcome . . . . Austin Nursing Ctr., Inc. v. Lovato, 171 S.W.3d
845, 848 (Tex. 2005).

A party filing a Forcible Detainer to obtain Immediate Possession is dependent
upon having standing under a Valid Substitutes Trustee Deed. Appellees counsel;
without a durable power of attorney which is required by TEX. PROB. CODE
ANN. 489
4
and Appellee was not a secured party of record and under this
premise lacked standing as a non interested party but was that of an intruder.

Herewith, Appellees counsel without a filed legal power of attorney of a perfected
secured party filed a null Substitutes Trustees Deed in Tarrant County public
records naming Appellees as equitable title owner. Normally, the filing of a
Substitutes Trustee Deed would provide standing for filing of a Forcible Detainer,
but not in this case, standing in this instant suit is dependent upon a provable claim
to legal title. Claim to legal title is currently being adjudicated in the Second Court
of Appeals, Tarrant County, Texas as Cause No. 02-11-00140-CV.

In a contract for purchase or a contract for deed, a forcible detainer action is dependent
on proof of a landlord-tenant relationship. Aguilar, 72 S.W.3d at 733; see Ward, 115

4
A durable power of attorney for a real property transaction requiring the execution and delivery of an instrument
that is to be recorded, including a release, assignment, satisfaction, mortgage, security agreement, deed of trust,
encumbrance, deed of conveyance, oil, gas, or other mineral lease, memorandum of a lease, lien, or other claim or
right to real property, shall be recorded in the office of the county clerk of the county in which the property is
located. TEX. PROB. CODE ANN. 489.

Page 22 Appeal Page 38

S.W.3d at 271.

Herein, the validity of legal title must be fully adjudicated, when on only when a
court of jurisdiction rules ownership of equitable title is in Appellees name, which
is impossible, could Appellee attempt to prove a landlord-tenant relationship and
then and only then would Appellee have standing to invoke the courts jurisdiction.
The issue of a durable power of attorney and the filing of a null Substitute
Trustees Deed is a subservient issue to standing and title dispute and would be
rendered a moot issue when a court(s) of jurisdiction fully adjudicates legal title.
Regardless of the durable power of attorney, until and unless the court(s) having
jurisdiction over title issues has ruled in Appellees favor, equitable title exists in
Appellees name, a court with limited jurisdiction without power to determine
legal or equitable title would be unable to determine immediate possession on a
Forcible Detainer action.
A justice court is expressly denied jurisdiction to determine or adjudicate title to land, as
is a county court-at-law on appeal of a forcible detainer action. See TEX. GOVT CODE
ANN. 27.031(b)(4) (Vernon 2004); Aguilar, 72 S.W.3d at 732.
This court should notice, not only is there one, but several issues of standing
that prohibits Appellee from invoking a courts limited jurisdiction. To
prevail in a forcible detainer action, a party is not required to prove title, but
is only required to show sufficient evidence of ownership to demonstrate a
superior right to immediate possession. Ward, 115 S.W.3d at 270. Herewith,
Appellee can only present a null Substitute Trustees Deed and in a more
Page 23 Appeal Page 39

prominent position, a VOID Substitute Trustee Deed, if and when the


Second Court of Appeals rules and enters an opinion of legal title ownership,
this ownership would not be adjudicated in favor of the Appellee. Title
issues must be fully adjudicated before a limited courts jurisdiction can be
invoked by any party.
Title Was In Dispute and Appellee Lacked Standing
Appellee Was Not a Secured Party of Record and Lacked Standing
CONCLUSION
Federal National Mortgage Associations claims that an unproven Trustees Deed
is sufficient evidence to prove ownership of equitable title to obtain possession is a
falsehood. Federal National Mortgage Association does not have of record and
never can have of record in Tarrant County property records an assignment of legal
title from a previous secured party showing they are the current secured party with
legal rights or standing to invoke a courts jurisdiction. Whereas Federal National
Mortgage Association filed an ineligible instrument in violation of Texas Property
Code 11.001, this court must upon such finding must render the matter to the
proper law enforcement agency as being a possible violation of Chapter 32 of the
Texas Penal Code.

Page 24 Appeal Page 40

PRAYER
For the foregoing reasons, Appellant prays that the Court finds that the lower
courts were without jurisdiction to render an order and issue any such other order
and equitable relief as the court deems appropriate in the best interest of justice.

COURT
PRECINCT NO. 3
TARRANT COUNTY, TEXAS

MOTION TO DISMISS
TO THE HONORABLE JUDGE OF SAID COURT:
NOW COMES, Defendant, James Allen McGuire, in the above styled and numbered
cause and would show the Court the following:
I.
Defendant brings this cause as: Barrett Burke Frappier Turner & Engel, L.L.P. has not
since 2009 had an effective Power of Attorney on file in Public Records of Tarrant County to
represent Plaintiffs in any legal capacity. Barrett Burke Frappier Turner & Engel, L.L.P.,
filed a Forcible Detainer against Defendant without appropriate authority for Plaintiff, and
were without legal authority or standing to file a Forcible Detainer suit in this court.
II.
Page 27 Appeal Page 43
Befenuants 0iiginal Notion to Bismiss Page
Defendant attaches an online search of Tarrant County Public Records (Exhibit A).
The online search reveals all filed Power of Attorneys filed by FEDERAL NATIONAL
MORTGAGE ASSOCIATION A/K/A FANNIE MAE since 1999. Public records does reflect a
Power of Attorney filed as Instrument #D207418592 whereas FEDERAL NATIONAL
MORTGAGE ASSOCIATION A/K/A FANNIE MAE provides a General Power of Attorney
(Exhibit B) expiring January 1, 2009. Public records reveal not additional Power of Attorney filed
by Fannie Mae to note Barrett Burke Frappier Turner & Engel, L.L.P. is counsel of record.
III.
Plaintiff has more than one fatal issue that would disallow standing to invoke the
courts jurisdiction. This Motion to Dismiss is not meant to disallow Defendant from
presenting additional fatal issues that would also notice the court there is a lack of standing.
IV.
Defendant prays that this court will dismiss the suit for lack of standing. Award the
Defendant interim attorney fees in the Amount of $7,500, and any other equitable relief that
is available.
Respectfully submitted,

ISSUE PRESENTED
Whether the trial court erred in incurring jurisdiction where Appellee lacked standing to
invoke the trial courts jurisdiction?
JURISDICTION
This court has jurisdiction pursuant to Texas Government Code Sec.22.220,
Texas Government Code 74.04174.062, Texas Government Code.
JUDICIAL NOTICE
Appellant was shocked and surprised in discovering an Assignment of Deed of Trust
from Norwest Mortgage Services, Inc to G E Capital Mortgages Services Inc., dated
December 5, 1995 filed in Tarrant County Public Records [Exhibit A] while awaiting
Apellees Brief is further evidence that Apellees lacked standing as a bona fide
purchaser to obtain a courts jurisdiction.

The discovery of this instrument filed of record is prima facie proof that the Lost Note
Affidavit filed in Cause No. 141-223599-07 [James McGuire v. Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.,
141st District Court] is a fraudulent filing in the 141st Court and fraudulent statements
have been provided to this court in Cause Number #02-11-00140-CV and this court
PAGE 7 Appeal Page 70
should consider rendering these illegal actions to proper authorities for criminal warrants
to be considered and possible sanction violations against Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. and the
counsels of record, Richard Illmer, Bar ID# 24056116 and Elizabeth Bloch, Bar ID#
02495500 to preserve justice.
Appellant apologizes to this court for this unexpected surprise as such was a surprise
upon Appellant. Tarrant County Public Records indexes are based upon Grantor/Grantee
Indexing. The instrument uncovered was filed noting Norwest Mortgage Services, Inc
was the Grantor.

STATEMENT OF THE CASE
Appellee without legal Standing filed with the Justice Court a Forcible
Detainer action, (CR, p. 2). Appellant filed a General Denial and a Motion to
Dismiss (Exhibit A) the suit as Appellees lacked standing to invoke the Justice
Courts and the trial courts jurisdiction. Appellant was forced to file an appeal to
Justice Court to the County Court (CR, p.79) and ultimately to this court Second
Court of Appeal.
STATEMENT ON ORAL ARGUMENT
PAGE 8 Appeal Page 71
As Appellant has been surprised by recent uncovering unknown filed records and due to
the complexity involved, Appellant request that Oral Arguments be held so that
Appellant be allowed to explain in great detail how this unexpected filing affects this
instant suit.
ISSUE PRESENTED
Whether the trial court erred in incurring jurisdiction where Appellee lacked
standing to invoke the trial courts jurisdiction?
STATEMENT OF FACTS
1. Federal National Mortgage Association filed in Tarrant County Public Records an
ineligible and unlawful Substitute Trustees Deed (CR, p.7) conveying equitable
title ownership away from Appellant.
2. Federal National Mortgage Association without lawful standing filed a Forcible
Detainer suit against Appellant as a tenant in the Justice Court.
3. Appellant argued the Justice Court was without jurisdiction and timely appealed
the Justice Courts opinion (CR, p. 20) to the County Court of Law.
4. Appellant argued jurisdiction before the County Court of Law and Appellant
further appealed to this court the trial courts improper acceptance of jurisdiction.
5. The trial courts erred in entering an order (CR, p. 75) as Appellees were without
standing to invoke the trial courts jurisdiction. The trial court lacking jurisdiction
is incapable of rendering any opinion.
PAGE 9 Appeal Page 72
Appellant timely filed a notice of appeal with this court.
SUMMARY OF THE ARGUMENT
First error, the Trial Court erred by issuing a ruling based on an improper acceptance of a
ineligible filed claim to equitable title as being colorable and extending jurisdiction to a
party that lacked standing.
Second error, the Trial Court was made aware that legal and equitable title disputes
existed and relied upon an ineligible instrument as being close enough colorable claim to
title; this rendered the court without jurisdiction and as such reliance was placed upon an
ineligible instrument for determination and should be considered a decision upon issues
of title.
Facts entered into public and court records clearly show that claims made to title by
Appellee are not factual.
ARGUMENT
Standing: Legal Principles
1. For a court to invoke its authority, the court must have been given jurisdiction by a
party that has legal standing. Tex. Natural Res. Conservation Commn v. ITDavy,
74 S.W.3d 849, 855 (Tex. 2002); see Mayhew v. Town of Sunnyvale, 964 S.W.2d
922, 928 (Tex. 1998). Standing is a component of subject-matter jurisdiction. Tex.
Assn of Bus. v. Tex. Air Control Bd., 852 S.W.2d 440, 44546 (Tex. 1993); see
also DaimlerChrysler Corp. v. Inman, 252 S.W.3d 299, 304 (Tex. 2008) (A
court has no jurisdiction over a claim made by a plaintiff without standing to assert
it.). If a party lacks standing to bring an action, the trial court lacks subject-matter
jurisdiction to hear the case. Tex. Assn of Bus., 852 S.W.2d at 44445.

2. The issue of Standing focuses on the question of who may bring an action.
Patterson v. Planned Parenthood, 971 S.W.2d 439, 442 (Tex. 1998). The general
PAGE 10 Appeal Page 73
test for standing is whether there is a real controversy between the parties that will
actually be determined by the judgment sought. Tex. Assn of Bus., 852 S.W.2d at
446. To establish standing, a person must show a personal stake in the
controversy. In re B.I.V., 923 S.W.2d 573, 574 (Tex. 1996).

3. Standing to sue may be predicated upon either statutory or common law authority.
Nauslar v. Coors Brewing Co., 170 S.W.3d 242, 252 (Tex. App.Dallas 2005, no
pet.); see Williams v. Lara, 52 S.W.3d 171, 17879 (Tex. 2001). The common law
standing rules apply except when standing is statutorily conferred. SCI Tex.
Funeral Servs., Inc. v. Hijar, 214 S.W.3d 148, 153 (Tex. App.El Paso 2007, pet.
denied).

4. We may consider evidence that the parties have submitted and must do so when
necessary to resolve the jurisdictional issues. Bland Indep. Sch. Dist. v. Blue, 34
S.W.3d 547, 555 (Tex. 2000)
5. In a plea to the jurisdiction, a party may present evidence to negate the
existence of a jurisdictional fact alleged in the pleadings, which we would
otherwise presume to be true. Miranda, 133 S.W.3d at 227; see also Combs v.
Entertainment Publns, Inc., 292 S.W.3d 712, 719 (Tex. App.Austin 2009, no
pet.).
6. The U.S. Constitution and the Texas Constitution require parties to have standing
to bring a claim in court, and the general test is whether there is a controversy
between the parties that will actually be determined by the judicial declaration
sought. Stop the Ordinances Please v. City of New Braunfels, 306 S.W.3d 919,
925 (Tex. App.Austin 2010, no pet.) (Citing Texas Assn of Bus., 852 S.W.2d at
446).
PAGE 11 Appeal Page 74
7. Standing focuses on the question of who may bring an action. Patterson v.
Planned Parenthood, 971 S.W.2d 439, 442 (Tex. 1998). The general test for
standing is whether there is a real controversy between the parties that will
actually be determined by the judgment sought. Tex. Assn of Bus., 852 S.W.2d at
446. -To establish standing, a person must show a personal stake in the
controversy. In re B.I.V., 923 S.W.2d 573, 574 (Tex. 1996).

8. Standard of review: A plea to the jurisdiction challenges a trial courts authority
to decide a specific cause of action. See Texas Dept of Parks & Wildlife v.
Miranda, 133 S.W.3d 217, 225-26 (Tex. 2004).

9. In First Southern Properties, Inc. v. Vallone, 533 S.W.2d 339 (Tex. 1976), the Texas
Supreme Court confirmed that:
[A] a purchaser under a power at a foreclosure sale obtains only such title as to
trustee had authority to convey. 533 S.W.2d at 341.

Herein this instant suit, the trustee that executed the sale of Appellants real property
had no authority to convey title and any action executed by such trustee should be
noted as being Void and not Voidable.

As explained by the Court of Appeals in Henke v. First Southern Properties,
Inc., 586 S.W.2d 617 (Tex. Civ. App. Waco 1979, writ refused n.r.e.):

[T]he doctrine of good faith purchaser for value without notice does not
apply to a purchaser at a void foreclosure sale. One who bids upon
property at a foreclosure sale does so at his peril. If the trustee conducting
the sale has no power or authority to offer the property for sale, or if there
PAGE 12 Appeal Page 75
is other defect or irregularity which would render the foreclosure sale
void, then the purchaser cannot acquire title to the property.
The general rule is that one claiming to be a good-faith purchaser has the
burden of proof on that issue. Fenley v. Ogletree, 277 S.W.2d 135, 141
(Tex. Civ. App. Beaumont 1955, writ ref'd n.r.e.); Watkins v. Edwards, 23
Tex. 443, 448 (1859).

Bona Fide Purchaser
The most recent definition of the bona fide purchaser by the Texas Supreme Court is
found in Madison v. Gordon, 39 S.W.3d 604 (Tex. 2001), in which the Court considered
the issue of constructive notice arising from possession of the property by one other than
the seller. The Court in Madison v. Gordon held that a purchaser was not charged with a
duty to investigate possible ownership claims of a tenant who was in possession of one
unit in a four-plex multifamily apartment building. The Court stated:
Status as a bona fide purchaser is an affirmative defense to a title dispute. A bona
fide purchaser is not subject to certain claims or defenses. To receive this special
protection, one must acquire property in good faith, for value, and without notice
of any third-party claim or interest. Actual notice rests on personal information
or knowledge. Constructive notice is notice the law imputes to a person not having
personal information or knowledge.

10. Appellee, even though not clearing stating, appears to be arguing a bona fide
purchaser defense and thus cannot claim a bona fide purchaser defense as
PAGE 13 Appeal Page 76
constructive notice was filed of record as evidenced by the filed Norwest
assignment.
11. Whereas, the 141
st
Judicial District Court granted Summary Judgment in favor of
Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., two facts are of court record. [In Re: James McGuire v.
Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., 141
st
District Court, Cause No. 141-223599-07], 1) a
Lost Note Affidavit was accepted by the court as substitution for the wet ink
negotiable instrument and Wells Fargo Bank N.A. was the secured party and per
the recently uncovered filed instrument reflects the lien was assigned from Wells
Fargo Bank, N.A. to a third party a decade before such Lost Note Affidavit was
filed provides evidentiary proof that a fraudulent document was submitted to the
trial court. 2) Appellee was not adjudicated as the owner of Appellants negotiable
instrument nor the owner of the lien securing the note.
12. In Re: A Purported Lien or Claim Against James McGuire (Cause No. 02-11-
00140-CV, Court of Appeals, Second District of Texas), Wells Fargo Banks, N.A.
response filed of record as of July 6, 2011 with the Second Court of Appeals
claims Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. is the current owner and holder of the lien
documents, this could only be considered as fraudulent statement made to the
Second Court of Appeals. [Appellants First Amended Brief, Exhibit E]

further confounds issue of title by claiming Federal National Mortgage
Association is the beneficiary named on the lien. This exhibit does not note
Appellee is a secured party of record. [RR, V3, Exhibit 3]


15. As the 141
st
District Court opined only a Lost Note Affidavit exists, it is a legal
impossibility that Wells Fargo Bank N.A. could have negotiated a non negotiable
Lost Note Affidavit to Federal National Mortgage Association between March 7,
2011 and April 25, 2011 and filed of record a conveyance of any rights to legal
title to that of Federal National Mortgage Association to allow Federal National
Mortgage Association to be a Secured Party of record.

PAGE 15 Appeal Page 78
16. Tarrant County public records reflect a filing of a Substitute Trustees Deed, [RR,
V3, Exhibit 2 ] by a predecessor to Appellee as means to convey equitable title
from Appellant to a subsequent purchaser who in this case is Federal National
Mortgage Association (Appellee) without any legal authority to execute such
conveyance of title. As public records reflect that Federal National Mortgage
Association was not a secured party of record nor a lawful purchaser of a void
Trustees Deed, such Substitute Trustees Deed was nothing more than a wild
deed without force.
17. Tarrant County property records are devoid of any notice of an assignment of lien
Deed of Trust being timely assigned and perfected in Federal National Mortgage
Association name so as to name Appellee as secured party to a indebtedness.
SUMMATION
Federal National Mortgage Association filed with the trial court a claim to possession of
Appellants equitable rights to real property by unlawful purchase of Appellants real
property by virtue of an unlawful use of void Substitute Trustees Deed in Tarrant County
property records. Additionally, Wells Fargo Bank N.A. in the Second Court of Appeals
has made claim to title and whereas Appellant has disputed both claims, a dispute of title
exists between all parties. Title issues alone would suffice to deny the justice court
jurisdiction to determine who has the right to immediate possession until all issues of title
are resolved by a court of competent jurisdiction.
CONCLUSION
PAGE 16 Appeal Page 79
Federal National Mortgage Associations claims purchase of real property via unproven
Trustees Deed is sufficient evidence to prove ownership of equitable title to obtain
possession is a falsehood. Federal National Mortgage Association does not have of record
and never can have of record in Tarrant County property records a legal right to a lien nor
can they purchase the real property from a non valid third party.
PRAYER
For the foregoing reasons, Appellant prays that the Court finds that the lower courts were
without jurisdiction to render an order and issue any such other order and equitable relief
as the court deems appropriate in the best interest of justice.
This court should look into the matter of fraudulent statements being made and filed into
the courts of Texas and take such action as required to prevent this absurd behavior.

JURISDICTION
This court has jurisdiction pursuant to Texas Government Code Sec.22.220,
Texas Government Code 74.04174.062, Texas Government Code.
JUDICIAL NOTICE
Appellant was shocked and surprised in discovering this week an Assignment of Deed
of Trust from Norwest Mortgage Services, Inc to G E Capital Mortgages Services Inc.,
dated December 5, 1995 filed in Tarrant County Public Records [Exhibit A] an on
December 27, 2012 retrieved from public records such instrument is further evidence that
Apellees lacked standing as a bona fide purchaser to obtain a courts jurisdiction.

The discovery of this unknown instrument filed of record is prima facie proof that the
Lost Note Affidavit filed in Cause No. 141-223599-07 [James McGuire v. Wells Fargo
Bank, N.A., 141st District Court] is a fraudulent filing in the 141st Court and fraudulent
statements may have been provided to this court in Cause Number #02-11-00140-CV and
this court should consider rendering these illegal actions to proper authorities for criminal
warrants to be considered and possible sanction violations against Wells Fargo Bank,
N.A. and counsel of record, Richard Illmer, Bar ID# 24056116 to preserve justice.
Page 7 Appeal Page 110
Appellant apologizes to this court for this unexpected surprise as such was a surprise
upon Appellant. Tarrant County Public Records indexes are based upon Grantor/Grantee
Indexing. The instrument uncovered was filed noting Norwest Mortgage Services, Inc
was the Grantor. Appellant has not addressed the validity of said surprise instrument as a
memorialization of an event that lawfully could not occur.

The Clerks Records will be cited by page number and paragraph number, (where
appropriate) e.g. CR p. [page]. para.[] or CR p.[page]. The Reporters Records will
be cited by page number and paragraph number, (where appropriate) e.g. RR, V, p.
[page]. para.[] or RR, Volume#, p.[page]. Appellant will cite by Exhibit Number
Exhibits contained within Appellants First Amended Brief.
STATEMENT OF THE CASE
Appellee without legal Standing filed with the Justice Court a Forcible Detainer
action, (CR, p. 2). Appellant filed a General Denial and a Motion to Dismiss (Exhibit A)
the suit as Appellees lacked standing to invoke the Justice Courts and the trial courts
jurisdiction. Appellant was forced to file an appeal to Justice Court to the County Court
(CR, p.79) and ultimately to this court Second Court of Appeal.
STATEMENT ON ORAL ARGUMENT
As Appellant has been surprised by recent uncovering unknown filed records and due to
the complexity involved, Appellant request Oral Argument of this court if required so
Page 8 Appeal Page 111
that Appellant can explain in detail how this unexpected instrument affects this instant
suit.
ISSUE PRESENTED
Whether the trial court erred in incurring jurisdiction where Appellee lacked
standing to invoke the trial courts jurisdiction?
STATEMENT OF FACTS
1. Federal National Mortgage Association purchased Appellants via an ineligible and
unlawful Substitute Trustees Deed (CR, p.7) that conveyed equitable title
ownership away from Appellant.
2. Federal National Mortgage Association without lawful standing filed a Forcible
Detainer suit against Appellant as a tenant in the Justice Court.
3. Appellant argued the Justice Court was without jurisdiction and timely appealed
the Justice Courts opinion (CR, p. 20) to the County Court of Law.
4. Appellant argued jurisdiction before the County Court of Law and Appellant
further appealed to this court the trial courts improper acceptance of jurisdiction.
5. The trial courts erred in entering an order (CR, p. 75) as Appellees were without
standing to invoke the trial courts jurisdiction. The trial court lacking jurisdiction
is incapable of rendering an opinion.
Appellant timely filed a notice of appeal with this court.
SUMMARY OF THE ARGUMENT
Page 9 Appeal Page 112
First error, the Trial Court erred by issuing a ruling based on an improper acceptance of a
ineligible filed claim to equitable title as being colorable and extending jurisdiction to a
party that lacked standing.
Second error, the Trial Court was made aware that legal and equitable title disputes
existed and relied upon an ineligible instrument as being close enough colorable claim to
title; this rendered the court without jurisdiction and as such reliance was placed upon an
ineligible instrument for determination and should be considered a decision upon issues
of title.
Facts entered into public and court records clearly show that claims made to title by
Appellee are not factual.
ARGUMENT
Standing: Legal Principles
1. For a court to invoke its authority, the court must have been given jurisdiction by a
party that has legal standing. Tex. Natural Res. Conservation Commn v. ITDavy,
74 S.W.3d 849, 855 (Tex. 2002); see Mayhew v. Town of Sunnyvale, 964 S.W.2d
922, 928 (Tex. 1998). Standing is a component of subject-matter jurisdiction. Tex.
Assn of Bus. v. Tex. Air Control Bd., 852 S.W.2d 440, 44546 (Tex. 1993); see
also DaimlerChrysler Corp. v. Inman, 252 S.W.3d 299, 304 (Tex. 2008) (A
court has no jurisdiction over a claim made by a plaintiff without standing to assert
it.). If a party lacks standing to bring an action, the trial court lacks subject-matter
jurisdiction to hear the case. Tex. Assn of Bus., 852 S.W.2d at 44445.
2. The issue of Standing focuses on the question of who may bring an action.
Patterson v. Planned Parenthood, 971 S.W.2d 439, 442 (Tex. 1998). The general
test for standing is whether there is a real controversy between the parties that will
actually be determined by the judgment sought. Tex. Assn of Bus., 852 S.W.2d at
446. To establish standing, a person must show a personal stake in the
controversy. In re B.I.V., 923 S.W.2d 573, 574 (Tex. 1996).
Page 10 Appeal Page 113
3. Standing to sue may be predicated upon either statutory or common law authority.
Nauslar v. Coors Brewing Co., 170 S.W.3d 242, 252 (Tex. App.Dallas 2005, no
pet.); see Williams v. Lara, 52 S.W.3d 171, 17879 (Tex. 2001). The common law
standing rules apply except when standing is statutorily conferred. SCI Tex.
Funeral Servs., Inc. v. Hijar, 214 S.W.3d 148, 153 (Tex. App.El Paso 2007, pet.
denied).
4. We may consider evidence that the parties have submitted and must do so when
necessary to resolve the jurisdictional issues. Bland Indep. Sch. Dist. v. Blue, 34
S.W.3d 547, 555 (Tex. 2000)
5. In a plea to the jurisdiction, a party may present evidence to negate the
existence of a jurisdictional fact alleged in the pleadings, which we would
otherwise presume to be true. Miranda, 133 S.W.3d at 227; see also Combs v.
Entertainment Publns, Inc., 292 S.W.3d 712, 719 (Tex. App.Austin 2009, no
pet.).
6. The U.S. Constitution and the Texas Constitution require parties to have standing
to bring a claim in court, and the general test is whether there is a controversy
between the parties that will actually be determined by the judicial declaration
sought. Stop the Ordinances Please v. City of New Braunfels, 306 S.W.3d 919,
925 (Tex. App.Austin 2010, no pet.) (Citing Texas Assn of Bus., 852 S.W.2d at
446).
7. Standing focuses on the question of who may bring an action. Patterson v.
Planned Parenthood, 971 S.W.2d 439, 442 (Tex. 1998). The general test for
standing is whether there is a real controversy between the parties that will
actually be determined by the judgment sought. Tex. Assn of Bus., 852 S.W.2d at
446. -To establish standing, a person must show a personal stake in the
controversy. In re B.I.V., 923 S.W.2d 573, 574 (Tex. 1996).
8. Standard of review: A plea to the jurisdiction challenges a trial courts authority to
decide a specific cause of action. See Texas Dept of Parks & Wildlife v. Miranda,
133 S.W.3d 217, 225-26 (Tex. 2004).
Page 11 Appeal Page 114

9. In First Southern Properties, Inc. v. Vallone, 533 S.W.2d 339 (Tex. 1976), the
Texas Supreme Court confirmed that:
[A] a purchaser under a power at a foreclosure sale obtains only such title
as to trustee had authority to convey. 533 S.W.2d at 341.

Herein this instant suit, the trustee that executed the sale of Appellants real property
had no authority to convey title and any action executed by such trustee should be
noted as being Void and not Voidable.

As explained by the Court of Appeals in Henke v. First Southern Properties,
Inc., 586 S.W.2d 617 (Tex. Civ. App. Waco 1979, writ refused n.r.e.):

[T]he doctrine of good faith purchaser for value without notice does not
apply to a purchaser at a void foreclosure sale. One who bids upon
property at a foreclosure sale does so at his peril. If the trustee conducting
the sale has no power or authority to offer the property for sale, or if there
is other defect or irregularity which would render the foreclosure sale
void, then the purchaser cannot acquire title to the property.
The general rule is that one claiming to be a good-faith purchaser has the
burden of proof on that issue. Fenley v. Ogletree, 277 S.W.2d 135, 141
(Tex. Civ. App. Beaumont 1955, writ ref'd n.r.e.); Watkins v. Edwards, 23
Tex. 443, 448 (1859).

Page 12 Appeal Page 115
Bona Fide Purchaser
The most recent definition of the bona fide purchaser by the Texas Supreme Court is
found in Madison v. Gordon, 39 S.W.3d 604 (Tex. 2001), in which the Court considered
the issue of constructive notice arising from possession of the property by one other than
the seller. The Court in Madison v. Gordon held that a purchaser was not charged with a
duty to investigate possible ownership claims of a tenant who was in possession of one
unit in a four-plex multifamily apartment building. The Court stated:
Status as a bona fide purchaser is an affirmative defense to a title dispute. A bona
fide purchaser is not subject to certain claims or defenses. To receive this special
protection, one must acquire property in good faith, for value, and without notice
of any third-party claim or interest. Actual notice rests on personal information
or knowledge. Constructive notice is notice the law imputes to a person not having
personal information or knowledge.

10. Appellee, not clearing stating so, appears to be arguing a bona fide purchaser
defense and thus cannot claim a bona fide purchaser defense as constructive notice
was filed of record as evidenced by the filed Norwest assignment.
11. Whereas, the 141
st
Judicial District Court granted Summary Judgment in favor of
Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., two facts are of court record. [James McGuire v. Wells
Fargo Bank, N.A., 141
st
District Court, Cause No. 141-223599-07], 1) a Lost Note
Affidavit was accepted by the court as substitution for the wet ink negotiable
instrument and Wells Fargo Bank N.A. was the secured party and per the recently
Page 13 Appeal Page 116
uncovered filed instrument reflects the lien was assigned from Wells Fargo Bank,
N.A. to a third party a decade before such Lost Note Affidavit was filed provides
evidentiary proof that a fraudulent document was submitted to the trial court. 2)
Appellee was not adjudicated as the owner of Appellants negotiable instrument
nor the owner of the lien securing the note.
12. In Re: A Purported Lien or Claim Against James McGuire (Cause No. 02-11-
00140-CV, Court of Appeals, Second District of Texas), Wells Fargo Banks, N.A.
response filed of record as of July 6, 2011 with the Second Court of Appeals
claimed Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. is the current owner and holder of the lien
documents, this could only be considered as fraudulent statement made to the
Second Court of Appeals. [Appellants First Amended Brief, Exhibit E]


13. Barrett Daffin Frappier Turner & Engel, LLP postal letter dated March 07,2011
claims that Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. is the Mortgagee of the lien, Appellee makes
no claim as to being a secured party of record: [Appellants First Amended Brief,
Exhibit D]
Page 14 Appeal Page 117

14. Barrett Daffin Frappier Turner & Engel, LLP postal letter dated April 25, 2011
further confounds issue of title by claiming Federal National Mortgage
Association is the beneficiary named on the lien. This exhibit does not note
Appellee is a secured party of record. [RR, V3, Exhibit 3]


15. As the 141
st
District Court opined only a Lost Note Affidavit exists, it is a legal
impossibility that Wells Fargo Bank N.A. could have negotiated a non negotiable
Lost Note Affidavit to Federal National Mortgage Association between March 7,
2011 and April 25, 2011 and filed of record a conveyance of any rights to legal
title to that of Federal National Mortgage Association to allow Federal National
Mortgage Association to be a Secured Party of record.
16. Tarrant County public records reflect a filing of a Substitute Trustees Deed, [RR,
V3, Exhibit 2] by a predecessor to Appellee as means to convey equitable title
from Appellant to a subsequent purchaser who in this case is Federal National
Mortgage Association (Appellee) without any legal authority to execute such
conveyance of title. As public records reflect that Federal National Mortgage
Page 15 Appeal Page 118
Association was not a secured party of record nor a lawful purchaser of a void
Trustees Deed, such Substitute Trustees Deed was nothing more than a wild
deed without force.
17. Tarrant County property records are devoid of any notice of an assignment of lien
Deed of Trust being timely assigned and perfected in Federal National Mortgage
Association name so as to name Appellee as secured party to a indebtedness.
SUMMATION
Federal National Mortgage Association filed with the trial court a claim to possession of
Appellants equitable rights to real property by unlawful purchase of Appellants real
property by virtue of an unlawful use of void Substitute Trustees Deed in Tarrant County
property records. Additionally, Wells Fargo Bank N.A. in the Second Court of Appeals
has made claim to title and whereas Appellant has disputed both claims, a dispute of title
exists between all parties. Title issues alone would suffice to have denied the justice court
jurisdiction to determine who has the right to immediate possession until all issues of title
are resolved by a court of competent jurisdiction. In Re: A Purported Lien or Claim
Against James McGuire (Cause No. 02-11-00140-CV, Court of Appeals, Second District
of Texas), the court opined on December 27, 2012 an expressed no opinion to the validity
or invalidity of the assignment. The court also noted: it merely purports to transfer an
existing note from one lender to another. If one applies this note thinking to the Norwest
Mortgage Services, Inc to G E Capital Services assignment, and if such was true, then the
Lost Note Affidavit introduced into evidence in James McGuire v. Wells Fargo Bank,
Page 16 Appeal Page 119
N.A., 141
st
District Court, Cause No. 141-223599-07 is fraudulent and the Transferee has
committed a fraudulent act. As the Lost Note Affidavit is a replacement for the
Negotiable Instrument and fraudulent act committed by virtue of the Lost Note Affidavit
would extend to the non-existent negotiable instrument and this further amplifies
Appellants claim that Appellee lacked standing.
3-203. TRANSFER OF INSTRUMENT; RIGHTS ACQUIRED BY
TRANSFER

(b) Transfer of an instrument, whether or not the transfer is a negotiation, vests in
the transferee any right of the transferor to enforce the instrument, including any
right as a holder in due course, but the transferee cannot acquire rights of a
holder in due course by a transfer, directly or indirectly, from a holder in due
course if the transferee engaged in fraud or illegality affecting the instrument.

CONCLUSION
Federal National Mortgage Associations claims purchase of real property via unproven
Trustees Deed is sufficient evidence to prove ownership of equitable title to obtain
possession is a falsehood. Federal National Mortgage Association does not have of record
and never can have of record in Tarrant County property records a legal right to a lien nor
can they purchase the real property from a non valid third party.
PRAYER
For the foregoing reasons, Appellant prays that the Court finds that the lower courts were
without jurisdiction to render an order and issue any such other order and equitable relief
as the court deems appropriate in the best interest of justice.
Page 17 Appeal Page 120
This court should look into the matter of fraudulent statements being made and filed into
the courts of Texas and take such action as required to prevent such absurd behavior.

Response to Motion to Strike
Appellant is arguing Standing and Jurisdiction in accordance to case law, as such,
Appellants introduction of evidence beyond the Clerk and Courts Record is
allowable, and therefore Appellants Reply Brief should be entered into the record.
Argument
Appellee on Page 6 of their Motion to Strike admitted not only did a Norwest
Mortgage, Inc to GE Mortgage Service, Inc dated June 1, 1995 assignment existed
but identified an assignment still unknown to Appellant from GE Capital Mortgage
Services, Inc to Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. dated May 27, 2005. This admission
provides additional prima facie proof that the Lost Note Affidavit filed in the 141
st
District Court was fraudulent and suggest the affiant committed perjury as such
Lost Note Affidavit relied upon the First Preference Mortgage Corporation
Services, Inc to Norwest Mortgage, Inc assignment dated June 1, 1995 as
supporting evidence of indebtedness. It is a legal impossibility to subsequently
negotiate a Lost Note Affidavit and where such evidence is noted to be that of the
GE Capital Mortgage Services, Inc to Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. assignment dated
May 27, 2005 could not represent a memorialization of a notes negotiation and it
is these facts that go to the heart of standing. Where a Note does not exist, no lien
can exist and no third party has standing in any court of law. When one applies
law, one needs to apply law to both the note and the lien in tandem. Appellees
Page 3 Appeal Page 134
lack standing in both, the lack of a note and the lack of a valid assigned lien as
evidence must be entertained by this court as it dwells to the heart of standing and
jurisdiction.
We may consider evidence that the parties have submitted and must do so when
necessary to resolve the jurisdictional issues. Bland Indep. Sch. Dist. v. Blue, 34
S.W.3d 547, 555 (Tex. 2000)
In a plea to the jurisdiction, a party may present evidence to negate the existence of a
jurisdictional fact alleged in the pleadings, which we would otherwise presume to be
true. Miranda, 133 S.W.3d at 227; see also Combs v. Entertainment Publns, Inc., 292
S.W.3d 712, 719 (Tex. App.Austin 2009, no pet.).
Appellee on Page 6 of Appellees motion again provides a fact point for Appellant
to challenge Standing. Appellants brief noted Federal National Mortgage
Association claimed to be the Beneficiary of Appellants Deed of Trust in a letter
received from Barrett Daffin Frappier & Turner and Apellees brief and Appellees
motion again appears to argue Federal National Mortgage Association is only a
bona fide purchaser.
JUDICIAL NOTICE
It appears to be unusual as Appellee have only objected to admission of
Appellants Reply Brief containing one Exhibit to negate standing and did not
object to Appellants Amended Brief that contained many Exhibits to negate a
Page 4 Appeal Page 135
claim of standing. It appears to Appellant that Appellees counsel is more
concerned with protecting BAR buddies as such evidence presented by
Appellee and additional evidence as identified would allow Appellee to file suit
upon the wrong doer who sold the property to Appellee. As Appellant is
allowed to enter evidence into the record to negate standing, Appellee has no
such legal recourse available to introduce evidence not entered into the trial
courts record and such action is exactly what Appellee did in Appellees
Motion to Strike.
PRAYER
For the foregoing reasons, Appellant request the Court deny Appellees Motion to
Strike.
Respectfully Submitted,

ISSUE PRESENTED
Whether the trial court erred in incurring jurisdiction where Appellee lacked standing to
invoke the trial courts jurisdiction?
JURISDICTION
This court has jurisdiction pursuant to Texas Government Code Sec.22.220,
Texas Government Code 74.04174.062, Texas Government Code.
JUDICIAL NOTICE
Appellant was shocked and surprised in discovering an Assignment of Deed of Trust
from Norwest Mortgage Services, Inc to G E Capital Mortgages Services Inc., dated
December 5, 1995 filed in Tarrant County Public Records [Exhibit A] while awaiting
Apellees Brief is further evidence that Apellees lacked standing as a bona fide
purchaser to obtain a courts jurisdiction.

The discovery of this instrument filed of record is prima facie proof that the Lost Note
Affidavit filed in Cause No. 141-223599-07 [James McGuire v. Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.,
141st District Court] is a fraudulent filing in the 141st Court and fraudulent statements
have been provided to this court in Cause Number #02-11-00140-CV and this court
PAGE 7 Appeal Page 161
should consider rendering these illegal actions to proper authorities for criminal warrants
to be considered and possible sanction violations against Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. and the
counsels of record, Richard Illmer, Bar ID# 24056116 and Elizabeth Bloch, Bar ID#
02495500 to preserve justice.
Appellant apologizes to this court for this unexpected surprise as such was a surprise
upon Appellant. Tarrant County Public Records indexes are based upon Grantor/Grantee
Indexing. The instrument uncovered was filed noting Norwest Mortgage Services, Inc
was the Grantor.

STATEMENT OF THE CASE
Appellee without legal Standing filed with the Justice Court a Forcible
Detainer action, (CR, p. 2). Appellant filed a General Denial and a Motion to
Dismiss (Exhibit A) the suit as Appellees lacked standing to invoke the Justice
Courts and the trial courts jurisdiction. Appellant was forced to file an appeal to
Justice Court to the County Court (CR, p.79) and ultimately to this court Second
Court of Appeal.
STATEMENT ON ORAL ARGUMENT
PAGE 8 Appeal Page 162
As Appellant has been surprised by recent uncovering unknown filed records and due to
the complexity involved, Appellant request that Oral Arguments be held so that
Appellant be allowed to explain in great detail how this unexpected filing affects this
instant suit.
ISSUE PRESENTED
Whether the trial court erred in incurring jurisdiction where Appellee lacked
standing to invoke the trial courts jurisdiction?
STATEMENT OF FACTS
1. Federal National Mortgage Association filed in Tarrant County Public Records an
ineligible and unlawful Substitute Trustees Deed (CR, p.7) conveying equitable
title ownership away from Appellant.
2. Federal National Mortgage Association without lawful standing filed a Forcible
Detainer suit against Appellant as a tenant in the Justice Court.
3. Appellant argued the Justice Court was without jurisdiction and timely appealed
the Justice Courts opinion (CR, p. 20) to the County Court of Law.
4. Appellant argued jurisdiction before the County Court of Law and Appellant
further appealed to this court the trial courts improper acceptance of jurisdiction.
5. The trial courts erred in entering an order (CR, p. 75) as Appellees were without
standing to invoke the trial courts jurisdiction. The trial court lacking jurisdiction
is incapable of rendering any opinion.
PAGE 9 Appeal Page 163
Appellant timely filed a notice of appeal with this court.
SUMMARY OF THE ARGUMENT
First error, the Trial Court erred by issuing a ruling based on an improper acceptance of a
ineligible filed claim to equitable title as being colorable and extending jurisdiction to a
party that lacked standing.
Second error, the Trial Court was made aware that legal and equitable title disputes
existed and relied upon an ineligible instrument as being close enough colorable claim to
title; this rendered the court without jurisdiction and as such reliance was placed upon an
ineligible instrument for determination and should be considered a decision upon issues
of title.
Facts entered into public and court records clearly show that claims made to title by
Appellee are not factual.
ARGUMENT
Standing: Legal Principles
1. For a court to invoke its authority, the court must have been given jurisdiction by a
party that has legal standing. Tex. Natural Res. Conservation Commn v. ITDavy,
74 S.W.3d 849, 855 (Tex. 2002); see Mayhew v. Town of Sunnyvale, 964 S.W.2d
922, 928 (Tex. 1998). Standing is a component of subject-matter jurisdiction. Tex.
Assn of Bus. v. Tex. Air Control Bd., 852 S.W.2d 440, 44546 (Tex. 1993); see
also DaimlerChrysler Corp. v. Inman, 252 S.W.3d 299, 304 (Tex. 2008) (A
court has no jurisdiction over a claim made by a plaintiff without standing to assert
it.). If a party lacks standing to bring an action, the trial court lacks subject-matter
jurisdiction to hear the case. Tex. Assn of Bus., 852 S.W.2d at 44445.

2. The issue of Standing focuses on the question of who may bring an action.
Patterson v. Planned Parenthood, 971 S.W.2d 439, 442 (Tex. 1998). The general
PAGE 10 Appeal Page 164
test for standing is whether there is a real controversy between the parties that will
actually be determined by the judgment sought. Tex. Assn of Bus., 852 S.W.2d at
446. To establish standing, a person must show a personal stake in the
controversy. In re B.I.V., 923 S.W.2d 573, 574 (Tex. 1996).

3. Standing to sue may be predicated upon either statutory or common law authority.
Nauslar v. Coors Brewing Co., 170 S.W.3d 242, 252 (Tex. App.Dallas 2005, no
pet.); see Williams v. Lara, 52 S.W.3d 171, 17879 (Tex. 2001). The common law
standing rules apply except when standing is statutorily conferred. SCI Tex.
Funeral Servs., Inc. v. Hijar, 214 S.W.3d 148, 153 (Tex. App.El Paso 2007, pet.
denied).

4. We may consider evidence that the parties have submitted and must do so when
necessary to resolve the jurisdictional issues. Bland Indep. Sch. Dist. v. Blue, 34
S.W.3d 547, 555 (Tex. 2000)
5. In a plea to the jurisdiction, a party may present evidence to negate the
existence of a jurisdictional fact alleged in the pleadings, which we would
otherwise presume to be true. Miranda, 133 S.W.3d at 227; see also Combs v.
Entertainment Publns, Inc., 292 S.W.3d 712, 719 (Tex. App.Austin 2009, no
pet.).
6. The U.S. Constitution and the Texas Constitution require parties to have standing
to bring a claim in court, and the general test is whether there is a controversy
between the parties that will actually be determined by the judicial declaration
sought. Stop the Ordinances Please v. City of New Braunfels, 306 S.W.3d 919,
925 (Tex. App.Austin 2010, no pet.) (Citing Texas Assn of Bus., 852 S.W.2d at
446).
PAGE 11 Appeal Page 165
7. Standing focuses on the question of who may bring an action. Patterson v.
Planned Parenthood, 971 S.W.2d 439, 442 (Tex. 1998). The general test for
standing is whether there is a real controversy between the parties that will
actually be determined by the judgment sought. Tex. Assn of Bus., 852 S.W.2d at
446. -To establish standing, a person must show a personal stake in the
controversy. In re B.I.V., 923 S.W.2d 573, 574 (Tex. 1996).

8. Standard of review: A plea to the jurisdiction challenges a trial courts authority
to decide a specific cause of action. See Texas Dept of Parks & Wildlife v.
Miranda, 133 S.W.3d 217, 225-26 (Tex. 2004).

9. In First Southern Properties, Inc. v. Vallone, 533 S.W.2d 339 (Tex. 1976), the Texas
Supreme Court confirmed that:
[A] a purchaser under a power at a foreclosure sale obtains only such title as to
trustee had authority to convey. 533 S.W.2d at 341.

Herein this instant suit, the trustee that executed the sale of Appellants real property
had no authority to convey title and any action executed by such trustee should be
noted as being Void and not Voidable.

As explained by the Court of Appeals in Henke v. First Southern Properties,
Inc., 586 S.W.2d 617 (Tex. Civ. App. Waco 1979, writ refused n.r.e.):

[T]he doctrine of good faith purchaser for value without notice does not
apply to a purchaser at a void foreclosure sale. One who bids upon
property at a foreclosure sale does so at his peril. If the trustee conducting
the sale has no power or authority to offer the property for sale, or if there
PAGE 12 Appeal Page 166
is other defect or irregularity which would render the foreclosure sale
void, then the purchaser cannot acquire title to the property.
The general rule is that one claiming to be a good-faith purchaser has the
burden of proof on that issue. Fenley v. Ogletree, 277 S.W.2d 135, 141
(Tex. Civ. App. Beaumont 1955, writ ref'd n.r.e.); Watkins v. Edwards, 23
Tex. 443, 448 (1859).

Bona Fide Purchaser
The most recent definition of the bona fide purchaser by the Texas Supreme Court is
found in Madison v. Gordon, 39 S.W.3d 604 (Tex. 2001), in which the Court considered
the issue of constructive notice arising from possession of the property by one other than
the seller. The Court in Madison v. Gordon held that a purchaser was not charged with a
duty to investigate possible ownership claims of a tenant who was in possession of one
unit in a four-plex multifamily apartment building. The Court stated:
Status as a bona fide purchaser is an affirmative defense to a title dispute. A bona
fide purchaser is not subject to certain claims or defenses. To receive this special
protection, one must acquire property in good faith, for value, and without notice
of any third-party claim or interest. Actual notice rests on personal information
or knowledge. Constructive notice is notice the law imputes to a person not having
personal information or knowledge.

10. Appellee, even though not clearing stating, appears to be arguing a bona fide
purchaser defense and thus cannot claim a bona fide purchaser defense as
PAGE 13 Appeal Page 167
constructive notice was filed of record as evidenced by the filed Norwest
assignment.
11. Whereas, the 141
st
Judicial District Court granted Summary Judgment in favor of
Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., two facts are of court record. [In Re: James McGuire v.
Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., 141
st
District Court, Cause No. 141-223599-07], 1) a
Lost Note Affidavit was accepted by the court as substitution for the wet ink
negotiable instrument and Wells Fargo Bank N.A. was the secured party and per
the recently uncovered filed instrument reflects the lien was assigned from Wells
Fargo Bank, N.A. to a third party a decade before such Lost Note Affidavit was
filed provides evidentiary proof that a fraudulent document was submitted to the
trial court. 2) Appellee was not adjudicated as the owner of Appellants negotiable
instrument nor the owner of the lien securing the note.
12. In Re: A Purported Lien or Claim Against James McGuire (Cause No. 02-11-
00140-CV, Court of Appeals, Second District of Texas), Wells Fargo Banks, N.A.
response filed of record as of July 6, 2011 with the Second Court of Appeals
claims Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. is the current owner and holder of the lien
documents, this could only be considered as fraudulent statement made to the
Second Court of Appeals. [Appellants First Amended Brief, Exhibit E]


PAGE 14 Appeal Page 168
13. Barrett Daffin Frappier Turner & Engel, LLP postal letter dated March 07,2011
claims that Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. is the Mortgagee of the lien, Appelee makes
no claim as to being a secured party of record: [Appellants First Amended Brief,
Exhibit D]

14. Barrett Daffin Frappier Turner & Engel, LLP postal letter dated April 25, 2011
further confounds issue of title by claiming Federal National Mortgage
Association is the beneficiary named on the lien. This exhibit does not note
Appellee is a secured party of record. [RR, V3, Exhibit 3]


15. As the 141
st
District Court opined only a Lost Note Affidavit exists, it is a legal
impossibility that Wells Fargo Bank N.A. could have negotiated a non negotiable
Lost Note Affidavit to Federal National Mortgage Association between March 7,
2011 and April 25, 2011 and filed of record a conveyance of any rights to legal
title to that of Federal National Mortgage Association to allow Federal National
Mortgage Association to be a Secured Party of record.

PAGE 15 Appeal Page 169
16. Tarrant County public records reflect a filing of a Substitute Trustees Deed, [RR,
V3, Exhibit 2 ] by a predecessor to Appellee as means to convey equitable title
from Appellant to a subsequent purchaser who in this case is Federal National
Mortgage Association (Appellee) without any legal authority to execute such
conveyance of title. As public records reflect that Federal National Mortgage
Association was not a secured party of record nor a lawful purchaser of a void
Trustees Deed, such Substitute Trustees Deed was nothing more than a wild
deed without force.
17. Tarrant County property records are devoid of any notice of an assignment of lien
Deed of Trust being timely assigned and perfected in Federal National Mortgage
Association name so as to name Appellee as secured party to a indebtedness.
SUMMATION
Federal National Mortgage Association filed with the trial court a claim to possession of
Appellants equitable rights to real property by unlawful purchase of Appellants real
property by virtue of an unlawful use of void Substitute Trustees Deed in Tarrant County
property records. Additionally, Wells Fargo Bank N.A. in the Second Court of Appeals
has made claim to title and whereas Appellant has disputed both claims, a dispute of title
exists between all parties. Title issues alone would suffice to deny the justice court
jurisdiction to determine who has the right to immediate possession until all issues of title
are resolved by a court of competent jurisdiction.
CONCLUSION
PAGE 16 Appeal Page 170
Federal National Mortgage Associations claims purchase of real property via unproven
Trustees Deed is sufficient evidence to prove ownership of equitable title to obtain
possession is a falsehood. Federal National Mortgage Association does not have of record
and never can have of record in Tarrant County property records a legal right to a lien nor
can they purchase the real property from a non valid third party.
PRAYER
For the foregoing reasons, Appellant prays that the Court finds that the lower courts were
without jurisdiction to render an order and issue any such other order and equitable relief
as the court deems appropriate in the best interest of justice.
This court should look into the matter of fraudulent statements being made and filed into
the courts of Texas and take such action as required to prevent this absurd behavior.

APPELLEE
FROM COUNTY COURT AT LAW NO.1 OF TARRANT COUNTY
MEMORANDUM OPINION
1
James Allen McGuire, pro se, appeals the county court's award of
possession of 902 Rusk Drive, Euless, Texas to Fannie Mae a/k/a Federal
National Mortgage Association. We will affirm the county court's judgment.
1See Tex. R. App. P. 47.4.
Appeal Page 194
Background Facts
In 1995, McGuire purchased the Rusk Drive residence and executed a
deed of trust encumbering the property in favor of First Preference Mortgage.
When McGuire failed to make his mortgage payments, First Preference's
successor-in-interest Wells Fargo sold the property to Fannie Mae at a
nonjudicial foreclosure sale. Fannie Mae then filed a petition for forcible detainer
in the justice of the peace court. A tria! was held and the court rendered
judgment in favor of Fannie Mae.
McGuire appealed to the county court, which tried the case de novo. See
Tex. R. Civ. P. 749, 751. At trial, Fannie Mae submitted the deed of trust, the
substitute trustee's deed showing that Fannie Mae acquired the property at a
foreclosure sale on April 5, 2011, and the notice to McGuire to vacate. McGuire
objected to the substitute trustee's deed on the grounds that Fannie Mae had not
perfected its chain of title and that he was concurrently contesting legal title in a
separate action in our court. The county court admitted the substitute trustee's
deed over McGuire's objection, The county court then rendered judgment in
favor of Fannie Mae. McGuire now appeals to this court.
Forcible Detainer
In a forcible detainer action, the only issue the trial court determines is
whether the party seeking to obtain possession is entitled to actual and
immediate possession, and the merits of whether a party has title shall not be
determined. See Tex. R. Civ. P. 746; Black v. Wash. Mut. Bank, 318 S.W.3d
2
Appeal Page 195
414, 416 (Tex. App.-Houston [1st Dist.] 2010, pet. dism'd w.o.j.); Williams v.
Bank of N. Y. Mellon, 315 S.W.3d 925, 927 (Tex. App.-Dallas 2010, no pet.).
Thus, questions over whether a sale of property encumbered by a deed of trust is
invalid "must be brought in a separate suit." Williams, 315 S.W.3d at 927; Rice v.
Pinney, 51 S.W.3d 705, 710 (Tex. App.-Dallas 2001, no pet.). "To prevail in a
forcible detainer action, a plaintiff is not required .to prove title, but is only required
to show sufficient evidence of ownership to demonstrate a superior right to
immediate possession." Rice, 51 S.W.3d at 709. A court may determine which
party has a superior right to possession without determining title when a landlord
tenant relationship exists between the parties. Id. at 712. The existence of the
landlord-tenant relationship prOVides a basis for determining the right to
possession without resolving the issue of who owns the property. See Salaymeh
v. Plaza Centro, LLC, 264 S.W.3d 431, 436 (Tex. App.-Houston [14th Dist.]
2008, no pet.) (stating that in a forcible detainer action, a landlord-tenant
relationship presents "an independent basis on which the trial court [can]
determine the right to immediate possession without resolving underlying title
issues"); Brown v. Kula-Amos, Inc., No. 02-04-00032-CV, 2005 WL 675563, at *3
(Tex. App.-Fort Worth 2005, no pet.) (mem. op.) (noting that a forcible detainer
action based on contract for deed depends upon landlord-tenant relationship and
that contract for deed may provide for party to become tenant at sufferance upon
default).

Appeal Page 196
Discussion
On appeal, McGuire argues that the county court was without jurisdiction
to hear the case for two reasons. First, McGuire claims that Fannie Mae does
not have standing because the substitute trustee's deed is "ineligible and
unlawful." He argues that the deed of trust "clearly shows that [he] was the
equitable owner of title," and because he did not convey title to Fannie Mae,
Fannie Mae's substitute trustee's deed "should be considered a 'wild deed'
without force."
The deed of trust that Fannie Mae submitted at trial shows that McGuire
granted First Preference a lien on the property to secure payment of a note and
includes a provision that if McGuire defaulted on the note and the property was
sold at a foreclosure sale, McGuire would become a tenant at sufferance. This
kind of provision in a deed of trust is generally sufficient to establish a landlord
tenant relationship between the mortgagor and the purchaser of the property at a
foreclosure sale. See Scott v. Hewitt, 127 Tex. 31, 90 S.W.2d 816, 818 (1936).
As stated above, such a relationship provides a basis for determining the right to
possession without resolving the issue of who owns the property. See
Salaymeh, 264 S.W.3d at 436.
Fannie Mae submitted a substitute trustee's deed showing that it
purchased the property from First Preference's successor-in-interest Wells Fargo
at a foreclosure sale on April 5, 2011. Fannie Mae's status as grantee under the
substitute trustee's deed is sufficient to confer standing on Fannie Mae to assert
4
Appeal Page 197
a forcible detainer action regarding the property. See Morris v. Am. Home Mortg.
Servicing, Inc., No. 01-09-00768-CV, 2011 WL 1631762, at *2 (Tex. App.
Houston [1 st Dist.] Apr. 28, 2011, no pet.) (overruling appellant's standing
argument when appellee demonstrated a landlord-tenant relationship through
substitute trustee's deed). The landlord-tenant relationship between Fannie Mae
and McGuire, established by the substitute trustee's deed, provided the basis for
the trial court's finding of Fannie Mae's superior right to possession. See id.;
Shutter v. Wells Fargo Bank, 318 S.W.3d 467, 471 (Tex. App.-Dallas 2010, pet.
dism'd w.o.j.) (op. on reh'g) (holding that the bank demonstrated its right to
possession of property because tenant-at-sufferance relationship existed).
Second, McGuire argues that he was contesting legal title in a separate
action and until title was resolved, the trial court could not award possession.
The existence of a title dispute will not deprive a justice court of jurisdiction in a
forcible detainer action unless the right to possession cannot be determined
without resolving the title issue. Rice, 51 S.W.3d at 713. Thus, McGuire was
required to demonstrate that the title dispute prevented the county court from
determining right to possession, depriving it of jurisdiction over the action. See
Mortg. Elec. Registration Sys. v. Young, No. 02-08-00088-CV, 2009 WL
1564994, at *5 (Tex. App.-Fort Worth June 4, 2009, no pet.) (mem. op.)
(holding that the county court did not have jurisdiction over a forcible detainer
action when defendant properly disputed title by submitting deeds showing that
5
Appeal Page 198
plaintiff had conveyed ownership of the property to another party after acquiring it
at the foreclosure sale).
McGuire argues that documents attached to his reply brief on appeal
demonstrate that Wells Fargo had previously assigned the deed of trust to
another party and thus, could not have later assigned it to Fannie Mae.
McGuire's argument challenges the validity of title. Fannie Mae was not required
to demonstrate valid title in order to demonstrate superior rlight of possession.
Rice, 51 S.W.3d at 709. As stated above, Fannie Mae established superior right
of possession through its submission of the deed of trust, the substitute trustee's
deed, and the notice to McGuire to vacate. Further, the other action McGuire
references was a challenge to the assignment of the lien from First Preference to
Wells Fargo. See In re A Purported Lien or Claim Against James McGuire, No.
02-11-00140-CV, 2012 WL 254066, at *1 (Tex. App.-Fort Worth Jan. 26, 2012,
no pet. h.) (mem. Op.).2 McGuire's attempt to dispute title is unlike the
defendant's attempt in Young because in Young, the defendant presented
evidence of a conveyance after the plaintiff had purchased the property, thereby
demonstrating that the plaintiff no longer had an interest in the property. See
Young, 2009 WL 1564994, at *3-5. McGuire challenges a conveyance that
2McGuire challenged the validity of the assignment under government
code section 51.903. See Tex. Gov. Code Ann. 51.903 (West. Supp. 2011).
We held that section 51.903 does not apply to assignments and, thus, McGuire
could not rely on it to challenge the assignment. McGuire, 2012 WL 254066, at
*1.
6
Appeal Page 199
occurred before Fannie Mae purchased the property. McGuire does not dispute
that Fannie Mae purchased the property or that Fannie Mae has retained its
alleged interest in the property; he disputes, in essence, only whether the seller
had the authority to sell the property to Fannie Mae in the first place. To the
extent that McGuire complains of defects in the foreclosure process, he may
pursue that complaint in district court, but it may not be considered in this action.
See Shutter, 318 S.W.3,d at 471; Williams, -315 S.W.3d at 927 (citing Scott, 127
Tex. at 35,90 S.W.2d at 818-19).
We hold that the county court was able to determine Fannie Mae's right to
immediate possession of the property at trial, and it did not err in granting
possession of the property to Fannie Mae. We overrule McGuire's issues.
Conclusion
Having overruled all of McGuire's issues, we affirm the county court's
judgment. Because we affirm the county court's judgment, we deny Fannie
Mae's motion to strike appellant's response brief as moot.

PRECINCT NO. 3



TARRANT COUNTY, TEXAS






MOTION TO DISMISS


TO THE HONORABLE JUDGE OF SAID COURT:

NOW COMES, Defendant, James Allen McGuire, in the above styled and numbered
cause and would show the Court the following:
I.
Defendant brings this cause as: Barrett Burke Frappier Turner & Engel, L.L.P. has not
since 2009 had an effective Power of Attorney on file in Public Records of Tarrant County to
represent Plaintiffs in any legal capacity. Barrett Burke Frappier Turner & Engel, L.L.P.,
filed a Forcible Detainer against Defendant without appropriate authority for Plaintiff, and
were without legal authority or standing to file a Forcible Detainer suit in this court.
II.
Appeal Page 203
DefendantsOriginalMotiontoDismiss Page2

Defendant attaches an online search of Tarrant County Public Records (Exhibit A).
The online search reveals all filed Power of Attorneys filed by FEDERAL NATIONAL
MORTGAGE ASSOCIATION A/K/A FANNIE MAE since 1999. Public records does reflect a
Power of Attorney filed as Instrument #D207418592 whereas FEDERAL NATIONAL
MORTGAGE ASSOCIATION A/K/A FANNIE MAE provides a General Power of Attorney
(Exhibit B) expiring January 1, 2009. Public records reveal not additional Power of Attorney filed
by Fannie Mae to note Barrett Burke Frappier Turner & Engel, L.L.P. is counsel of record.

III.
Plaintiff has more than one fatal issue that would disallow standing to invoke the
courts jurisdiction. This Motion to Dismiss is not meant to disallow Defendant from
presenting additional fatal issues that would also notice the court there is a lack of standing.

IV.
Defendant prays that this court will dismiss the suit for lack of standing. Award the
Defendant interim attorney fees in the Amount of $7,500, and any other equitable relief that
is available.


Respectfully submitted,

Rule of appellate procedure 34.6(e)(1) and (2) provides that if there are
inaccuracies in the reporter's record, the parties may either correct the
inaccuracy by agreement or submit the disagreement to the trial court for
resolution after notice and hearing. See Tex. R. App. P. 34.6(e)(1), (2). Rule
34.6(e)(3) permits an appellate court, "jf the dispute [concerning the accuracy of
the reporter's record] arises after the reporter's record has been filed in the
appellate court, [to] submit the dispute to the trial court for resolution." Tex. R.
App. P. 34.6(e)(3). In his motion to correct the reporter's record,
1
Appellant
states: "Upon review of the Reporter's Record it was noticed that reference,
verbatim, 'closest thing I have to a colorable claim' is missing from the record.
[Page 8 of the Reporters Record, Approximately in the area of lines 17 to 22][.]"
In his appellate brief, however, Appellant contends in one issue that Appellee did
not have standing to invoke the trial court's jurisdiction. Thus, even taking the
statements in Appellant's motion as true, the allegedly missing statement relates
to Appellant's "colorable claim" and does not affect Appellee's standing in the trial
court. See generally Landry's Seafood House-Addison, Inc. v. Snadon, 233
S.W.3d 430, 437 (Tex. App.-Dallas 2007, pet. denied) (overruling issue
concerning missing testimony raised pursuant to rule 34.6(f) because missing
testimony did not relate to matters at issue in the appeal).
1Appellant actually filed a letter with this court dated December 11, 2011, and we
construed the letter as a motion to correct the reporter's record. [misc. file]

Re: No. 02-11-00140-CV
Trial Court 342-252174-11


Appellant is in receipt of the trial courts record.

Upon review of the Reporters Record it was noticed that reference, verbatim, closest thing I
have to a colorable claim is missing from the record. [Page 8 of the Reporters Record,
Approximately in the area of lines 17 to 22]

Appellant request that the court direct that the audio version of the hearing be placed under
appropriate custody for use at a later date and that the proper agencies are notified that there is a
possibility that court records have been tampered with.

Appellant will still prepare and submit Appellants Brief upon the records as provided by
December 22, 2011 and if it is proved of fact that the court records have been tampered with, the
Appellant would be offered the opportunity to amend the Appellants Brief based on a true and
correct copy of the record.

Appellant provides this advance notice to the 2
nd
Court of Appeals so evidence can be secured
before the offenders have received notice which will be contained in Appellants Brief.
