'07 Limited V6 Sticking Rear Door Latch

I am finding my rear door latch intermittently falls to a closed / lock position once the door is opened. In order to close the door i need to lift the latch mechanism on the door to the open position.

Does anyone know that cause and how to fix this issue?

I have looked online and have not found anything of use at this point.

Have you tried lubricating the latch? I oil my door latches and hinges about once a year. Even the hinge on the fuel filler door.
