Transcript of FL Foreclosure Firm Ben-Ezra Hearing on Contempt

Via: PB Post‘s Kim Miller


THE COURT: No, not now. The Court
19 has already dismissed it. It is gone.
20 And the Court is finding you in
21 contempt and you, sir, Mr. Cornell, for
22 filing this in this manner when these
23 documents are so questionable. You are
24 to pay opposing counsel’s fees and
25 costs.

1 And the mortgage is dismissed with
2 prejudice. And based on the 1099 the
3 note is canceled and dismissed with
4 prejudice as it looks like the note has
5 been satisfied. And if they want to go
6 for some other sort of judgment, I
7 suppose they can do that.

8 And the Court will draft an order
9 finding you in contempt, finding you
10 grossly negligent, both of you and I’m
11 sending this to the Bar. This is just
12 enough.

13 It’s time that somebody looked at
14 this stuff and reacted instead of
15 waiting until you come in front of a
16 judge, having a judge dress you down,
17 which I’m very sorry to have to do and
18 then say, “Wait a minute. We can fix
19 this.”

Fraud on the Court, Ben-Ezra style

Fraud on the Court, Ben-Ezra style


Just yesterday I was lamenting the absence of any sanction against Ben-Ezra & Katz for its ongoing and systemic fraud on the courts, per Fannie Mae, which fired the foreclosure mill.  Today, I got some insight into the fraud, and it’s not pretty.  To illustrate, read this Order to Show Cause.  I promise – it’s a whopper.

Apparently, Ben-Ezra filed a foreclosure suit with a lost note count, then filed an “original” note signed by an entirely different defendant on an entirely different property, along with a fraudulent assignment of mortgage.  The Court entered summary judgment, then, upon realizing the fraud, directed Ben-Ezra & Katz to show cause why they should not be held in contempt of court.

Judge holds bankers in contempt, threatens jail

Judge holds bankers in contempt, threatens jail

Jose Pagliery Daily Business Review January 13, 2011

Representatives from six major banks that skipped a hearing in a Miami condo association receivership case could face the wrath of Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Jennifer Bailey today if they fail to show up a second time.

The judge already has declared lenders that own or are foreclosing on units at Bird Grove Condo are on the hook for $105,999 in expenses for the court-appointed receiver for the association. She also held the six in contempt of court.

Bailey last month granted a request by the receiver, Miami attorney Lisa Lehner, to be paid for pulling the building — an asset for the foreclosing banks — back from the brink of condemnation.

When Lehner was appointed in March, garbage hadn’t been collected for weeks, electricity was about to be cut off, the building had no insurance, and an elevator was broken. She turned it around in months.

“They have property and collateral that if I walk away from turn into nothing,” Lehner said. “Here I am, sitting as their property manager, working for free after practicing law for 28 years. It’s just not fair.”

Lehner’s demand for $5,579 in expenses per unit went uncontested at a Dec. 1 show cause hearing where Bank of America was the only lender to send a representative. Missing were Flagstar Bank, GMAC, PNC Bank, SunTrust Bank, U.S. Bank and Wells Fargo.

In November, banks owned two units and were foreclosing on another 17 units in the 39-unit building at 2734 Bird Ave. between a gas station and a gallery. A one-bedroom, one-bath unit is listed for sale for $50,000. Bank of America filed nine foreclosure cases, followed by GMAC with five.

The six lenders were ordered to send non-attorney representatives to today’s hearing, when Bailey will discuss whether the banks also should be required to pay the receiver’s upcoming maintenance fees. Bailey’s order threatened to have bankers arrested if they didn’t show, and she warned, “You may be held in jail up to 48 hours before a hearing is held.”
