Ohio Appeal CT Reversal “AFFIDAVIT FAIL” CitiMortgage v. ELIA



ZIAD F. ELIA, et al.


{¶8} In support of its motion for summary judgment, CitiMortgage relied on the affidavit of Aaron Menne, who identified himself as its vice president. Menne averred that he had custody of and familiarity with the “records of the payments on the account of Ziad F. Elia.” Menne further averred that the September 1, 2008 payment was the last one received on the account and, due to a default thereafter, “[CitiMortgage] *** elected to call the entire balance of
said account due and payable, in accordance with the terms of the note and mortgage.” The affidavit then noted the amount due and owing on the loan and the applicable interest rate. CitiMortgage did not attach any documents to Menne’s affidavit or incorporate any documents by reference through his affidavit. The affidavit was the only item appended to CitiMortgage’s motion. The copies of the note and mortgage upon which CitiMortgage brought suit were filed with the complaint.
