Excerpt:

Fourth, the MDL Court held that appellants had not
pleaded their robosigning claims with sufficient particularity
to satisfy Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 8(a). We disagree.
Section 33-420 characterizes as false, and therefore
actionable, a document that is “forged, groundless, contains
a material misstatement or false claim or is otherwise
invalid.” Ariz. Rev. Stat. §§ 33-420(A), (B) (emphasis
added). The CAC alleges that the documents at issue are
invalid because they are “robosigned (forged).” The CAC
specifically identifies numerous allegedly forged documents.
For example, the CAC alleges that notice of the trustee’s sale
of the property of Thomas and Laurie Bilyea was “notarized
in blank prior to being signed on behalf of Michael A. Bosco,
and the party that is represented to have signed the document,
Michael A. Bosco, did not sign the document, and the party
that did sign the document had no personal knowledge of any
of the facts set forth in the notice.” Further, the CAC alleges
that the document substituting a trustee under the deed of
trust for the property of Nicholas DeBaggis “was notarized in
blank prior to being signed on behalf of U.S. Bank National
Association, and the party that is represented to have signed
the document, Mark S. Bosco, did not sign the document.”
Still further, the CAC also alleges that Jim Montes, who
purportedly signed the substitution of trustee for the property
of Milan Stejic had, on the same day, “signed and recorded,
with differing signatures, numerous Substitutions of Trustee
in the Maricopa County Recorder’s Office . . . . Many of the
signatures appear visibly different than one another.” These
and similar allegations in the CAC “plausibly suggest an
entitlement to relief,” Ashcroft v. Iqbal, 556 U.S. 662, 681
(2009), and provide the defendants fair notice as to the nature
of appellants’ claims against them, Starr v. Baca, 652 F.3d
1202, 1216 (9th Cir. 2011).

We therefore reverse the MDL Court’s dismissal of
Count I.
