Black Sky Capital, LLC v. Cobb

CCP 580d does not bar a creditor from suing a borrower to collect on a note secured by a junior lien that was extinguished by a non-judicial foreclosure of a senior lien, even if the creditor also held the senior lien on which it non-judicially foreclosed.  Disagreeing with Simon v. Superior Court (1992) 4 Cal.App.4th 63, this decision holds that CCP 580d does not bar a creditor holding a note secured by a junior deed of trust from suing the borrower on the note after the lien of the junior deed of trust is extinguished by a nonjudicial foreclosure sale under a senior deed of trust on the property.  This is true, the decision holds, even when the same creditor holds both the foreclosed senior lien and the sold-out junior lien.  Section 580d unambiguously bars recovery of a deficiency only on the loan secured by the deed of trust under which the nonjudicial foreclosure was held.
