Rare dispute within Florida Bar over quickie foreclosures

“It was with a very heavy heart and hand that we decided to oppose the very organization that we are members of,” said South Florida foreclosure defense attorney Roy Oppenheim, who signed the letter opposing the bills with other local lawyers including Royal Palm Beach-based Tom Ice. “But if they think we’re going to stand by and let this happen, they’re crazy.”

A rare public brawl is escalating between members of the Florida Bar and one of the organization’s most powerful sections over legislation aimed at speeding the state’s lengthy foreclosure process.

The dispute, which heated up this week in letters published in the online version of The Florida Bar News, has even drawn super lobbyist Ron Book into the fray.

Book, whose clients include Florida Power & Light, AutoNation and Sun Life Stadium, was hired by Florida Consumer Justice Advocates, a group of attorneys opposing the legislation, which they believe favors banks.

On the other side is the Florida Bar’s Real Property, Probate and Trust Law Section, represented by another prominent lobbyist, Peter Dunbar. The section says the legislation balances the rights of homeowners with the need to reduce the backlog of foreclosures in Florida’s courts.

    Wow, the makings of an insurgency within the “guild”. Why not invite testimony from some of the lil’people? You know, those people who take it in the face (and the pocketbook) from unethical crooks. Unfortunately, unethical and immoral aren’t necessarily illegal. Some of these fine folks get paid to throw grandmothers into the street for failing to pay water bills. It’s quite something to see.
