Security Pac. Nat'l Bank v. Ginkowski

In Security Pac. Nat'l Bank v. Ginkowski, 140 Wis. 2d. 332, 410 N.W. 2d 589 (Ct. App.) review denied, 141 Wis. 2d 984, 416 N.W.2d 296 (1987), a foreclosure action, the mortgagee sought reformation of the mortgage, which lacked the signature by the mortgagor, who testified that he never signed the mortgage, nor intended to sign it. The trial court found, however, that the mortgagor did intend to grant the mortgage as part of the loan transaction, and ordered reformation of the mortgage to cure the lack of execution. This result was upheld by the Court of Appeals of Wisconsin.
