Pawtucket foreclosure lawyer will appeal $10,000 fine levied by judge

The Providence Journal-

A Pawtucket lawyer who is representing homeowners challenging their foreclosures in 705 of the 831 cases in Rhode Island’s federal court has been fined $10,000 by U.S. District Judge John J. McConnell Jr.

Attorney George Babcock was ordered to pay four $2,500 fines for signing and submitting to the court papers that contain “false factual contentions,” according to the order, which was signed by McConnell on Tuesday.

In each of the four cases, Babcock asserted that documents had been submitted when they had not, the order said. The order includes an additional $9,150 in fines for nine of Babcock’s clients for delays in meeting deadlines for filing paperwork or responding to requests for information.

Babcock said he would appeal the fine, which he considers a violation of his due-process rights. He said the order was based on the assertions of Special Master Merrill Sherman, who was appointed by McConnell to manage the foreclosure cases and help the homeowners and lenders reach settlements.

“Certainly, I should have had the right to question my accusers,” Babcock said. But “nothing surprises me,” he added. “The ‘haves’ have no clue.”
