Many thanks to Gretchen Minneman and the Spring 2006 Rutgers University Community Development Studio for gathering mortgage foreclosure filings. A very special thanks to the staff at the foreclosure division of the New Jersey Administrative Office of the Courts for facilitating access to the data, to Ken Zimmerman and Ellen Brown at the New Jersey Institute for Social Justice and to Michael Farley, Doris Lewis, Moises Serrano, members of UVSO's predatory lending advisory panel and to the many homeowners who graciously spent their evenings with us. Robert Lake, Elvin K. Wyly, Norman Glickman, Phil Ashton, Dan Hammel, Tom Slater and four IJURR referees provided helpful comments on the manuscript as did Manuel Aalbers, who organized the symposium.
