Response: The adjusted purchase price paid by JP Morgan for the certain pool of

10) Describe what the ‘bid acceptance date’ of 12/22/05 means with respect to subject loan and the
deal between New Century Capital Corporation and JPM.
Response: NC Capital Corporation entered into a commitment to sell, in a whole

Plaintiff’s AP 09-52251 KJC in this matter, please provide the exact dollar amount constituting
‘FOR VALUE RECEIVED’ which Home123 Corporation received from U.S. Bank N.A.
Response: The Debtors sold the Carr loan to JP Morgan (the purchase price
constituting “value received”) and issued an assignment in blank to JP
Morgan. The Debtors are informed and believe that after the sale to JP
Morgan was consummated, JP Morgan included the Carr loan in a
securitization. In connection with the securitization, the assignment in
blank was completed by filling in the name of US Bank, as the trustee of
the securitization trust, in accordance with normal securitization
procedures. Intervening assignments were not recorded since a loan
may undergo multiple transfers in connection with a securitization, thus
both promissory notes and mortgages/deeds of trust were assigned in
blank in the normal course of business.
15) Please state the name of the person(s) involved in the underwriting of the subject loan.
“Underwriting” refers to any person who made representations, warranties, evaluations or
appraisals of value of the home, value of the security instruments, due diligence for any security
underwriting , ability of the borrower to pay including their names, addresses, current
employment status, phone number and email address.
Response: The Trust objects to the definition of “underwriting” as it is too broad.
The employee who acted as the “underwriter”, under the Debtors’
traditional definition, of the Carr loan file was Tung Phan.
16) Please state the name, address and contact information of any person known or believed by
anyone at NCM, Home123 Corp. and/or New Century Capital Corporation, to have received
physical possession of the note, deed of trust, or any document that refers to or incorporates
terms regarding the securitization, sale, transfer, assignment, hypothecation, or any document
or agreement, oral , written, or otherwise, that would effect or involve:
a. The appraisal of subject property
b. The funding of the subject loan
c. The closing of subject loan
d. The management of subject loan
e. The receipt of money from a 3rd party in any transaction(s) that referred to the subject
loan
f. Disbursements of any loan funds
Response: The Trust objects to this request as it calls for information that is
overly broad and unduly burdensome as it relates to a “chain” of
people and all their contact information. The persons/entities most
knowledgeable about the specifics of the Carr loan include the
following: Greg Penney of Penney Appraisals- the third party appraiser
of the property; Sharon Corrales, an employee of the Debtors, was the
funder; LandAmerica/Commonwealth, a title company, closed the Carr
loan; Ryan Williams, an employee of the Debtors, was the account
manager of the loan. In addition, the settlement statement and the

final HUD reflects the disbursement of the loan funds to third parties.
All of the foregoing information was already produced in the
loan file.

DOCUMENT PRODUCTION

17) Please provide a copy of Stephen L. Nagy’s employment application to any NCTHI companies
with his signature. Redact his social security number.
Response: The Trust objects to this request as it calls for the production of
documents that are overly burdensome to produce and will not provide
evidence that is reasonably calculated to lead to the production of
admissible evidence. Mr. Nagy’s employment application, if it exists,
would only be in hard copy form and amongst thousands, if not millions
of documents. Searching for such document would cause the Trust to
invest large amounts of time and expense. The Trust has already
admitted that Mr. Nagy was an employee of the Trust and provided
pertinent information regarding his employment above. In addition, the
Trust has provided four (4) exemplars of Mr. Nagy’s signature.
18) Please provide a copy of any contract, agreement, letter of understanding or other document,
whether electronic or paper, between any NCTHI company and UBS in relation to the subject
loan or the mortgage pool subject loan was included in.
Response: The Trust has already produced these document(s).
19) Provide the GAAP entries for each NCTHI company with respect to subject loan or the mortgage
loan pool the subject loan was within.
Response: The Trust objects to this request as it is not reasonably calculated to
lead to the production of admissible evidence because GAAP has no
bearing to the claims at issue.
20) Provide all documents which must be signed by all parties, certified & notarized , related to the
‘bid acceptance date’ of 12/22/2005 for the deal between NCTHI and JPM with respect to
subject loan, including the MLSA.
Response: None of the documents related to the “bid acceptance date” at issue
were or are required to be signed, certified and notarized. The Trust
has already produced all signed documents. Thus, all documents
responsive to this request have already been produced.
21) With respect to subject loan, please provide each and every document transaction receipt,
contract, agreement, or other document, whether paper or electronic, related to the sale or
transfer of the promissory note & the deed of trust from Home123 Corporation to U.S. Bank,
N.A. as described by the Corporation Assignment of Deed of Trust signed on May 22, 2007 with
recordation of 6/15/2007 & entered as judicial notice exhibit for Plaintiff’s AP 09-52251 KJC in
this matter.
Response: The Debtors did not transfer the Carr loan to US Bank, but sold it to JP
Morgan. Thus, there are no documents responsive to this request.

Trust’s Reponses to Carr’s Informal Discovery Requests

More specifically, the Debtors sold the Carr loan and issued an
assignment in blank to JP Morgan. After the sale to JP Morgan was
consummated, JP Morgan then securitized the sold loans, including the
Carr loan, with US Bank, as Trustee of the Securitization. After the
loans, including the Carr loan, were securitized, the trustee’s name was
filled into the assignment documents. This was done in accordance with
ordinary practices in the secondary market industry.
22) Please provide a copy of the “true sale” opinion from NC Capital to JPM and any other entity
with respect to subject loan or any mortgage pool subject loan was within
Response: These documents are not in the Debtors’ books and records and thus
there are no documents responsive to this request. A true sale opinion
is given when there is a securitization; this language is not used in a
whole loan sale. Thus, these documents could either be in JP Morgan’s
or US Bank’s possession.
23) Please provide copies of the remittance ledger accounts from the servicer of the subject loan,
including all payments, advance payments, property tax payments, insurance payments, the
forwarding of any payments to any entity.
Response: Please see documents produced concurrently with these responses.
