Biography
Jeffrey Arlen Spinner has been an acting New York State Supreme Court Justice since 2006, sitting in the Suffolk County Foreclosure Conference part. He has received international acclaim for decisions holding lenders to a high standard of conduct in mortgage foreclosures. First, in November 2009, he cancelled a $292,000 mortgage because of what he called a bank’s "unconscionable, vexatious and opprobrious" conduct during mandatory loan-modification negotiations. In March 2010, he ordered Wells Fargo to pay a homeowner $155,000 for entering his house without permission and changing the locks; then last April, he ordered Emigrant Mortgage to pay a couple $100,000 as damages for what he said was an "unconscionable, unreasonable [and] overreaching" mortgage agreement. He previously served on the Suffolk District and County Courts. He earned his B.A. from Ithaca College and his J. D. from Touro Law Center.
