This is a case challenging a foreclosure following a default on a mortgage. The
property subject to the mortgage was sold at a foreclosure sale to defendant Bank of
America and the redemption period has expired. Nevertheless, plaintiff, proceeding pro

Intercontinental Electronics, S.p.A. v. Roosen, 210 F. App’x 491, **3 (6th Cir. 2006).

advances arguments that are not relevant to the issues presented in defendant’s
