Daily Business Review-
Two former law partners face reprimands after they were accused of botching foreclosure cases they filed for lenders and servicers during the robo-signing scandal.
Former Ben-Ezra & Katz co-managing partners Marc A. Ben-Ezra of Hollywood and Marvin Elliott Katz of North Miami Beach will be publicly reprimanded and asked to attend ethics school for their roles at the firm.
They were accused of failing to supervise employees. The Florida Bar alleged an outside attorney working at the firm signed several affidavits without a notary present and then had them signed by nonlawyer employees who knew him. The firm’s lawyers also failed to show up at case management conferences in 12 foreclosure cases, and the same judge dismissed five cases after no lawyer appeared at designated hearings. The firm also didn’t file substitution of counsel notices after five associates left the firm or went on leave.
