Jeff put this down very clearly.  He is a smart guy, and generally has a pretty solid handle on the underside of the finance industry.  I don't think we can overstate exaclty how dangerous and catastrophic it would be for judges to start setting aside delinquent mortgages left and right.  The ban...
