The homeowner's bill of rights added new laws and made changes to existing laws governing nonjudicial foreclosures in California - meaning trustee's sales. Unless specifically stated, legislation is prospective, and would not have a retroactive application.
You state that your home was wrongfully foreclosed, yet you do not state what specific provision of the new law would have been violated to give you a more specific answer. Your situation really depends on an in depth review of the underlying documents by a competent attorney.

Agreed. HOBR does not apply retroactively. However, you still may have other possible wrongful-foreclosure claims under other applicable foreclosure laws. Start collecting all the documents related to the foreclosure and speak with a real estate attorney quickly. A real estate attorney can help thoroughly look through documents to determine if correct foreclosure procedures were followed. Considering the property was foreclosed in 2010, be mindful of the statute of limitations.
