Junkin v. Golden W. Foreclosure, A124374

In plaintiff's action seeking damages for wrongful foreclosure and usurious interest against defendants, including a fellow investor, judgment in favor of defendants is affirmed where: 1) the trial court correctly ruled that the joint venture exception to the usury rules applied as there is strong evidence that a joint venture existed between plaintiff and the fellow investor; and 2) since the transaction was not usurious, it follows that the foreclosure sale was properly conducted.
