Key Insight: On appeal from a final judgment of foreclosure, the Appellate Court found the Trial Court erred in admitting a screen shot of a computer-generated document purporting to reflect the sale of the mortgage note to Defendant, over Appellant?s hearsay objection. The original note was lost, so Appellee?s witness, who testified regarding the sale of the note, ?relied entirely upon a screen shot of a computer-generated document referred to as a Loan Transfer History (LNTH)? to establish Defendant?s right to foreclose. The witness testified she did not know who entered the information displayed in the screen shot, or if it was entirely computer generated. The Court held ?Ms. Allen?s affirmative answers to business record foundation questions do no overcome her demonstrated lack of knowledge about the creation, accuracy or trustworthiness of the LNTH document.?
