“Are the courts supposed to rubber-stamp the filings, to . . . just sign off?” Judge Walker asked. “How can the court rely on good faith, knowing what the court knows of robo-signing?”
The Buffalo News-
Attorneys for New York State and a delinquent Buffalo borrower facing the loss of her home squared off in court Monday against Steven J. Baum PC, as the state’s biggest foreclosure law firm sought to have a new court mandate for accuracy of documents declared unconstitutional.
The Baum firm wants a state court in Buffalo to overturn a statewide administrative rule, which the firm contends is impeding the rights of its bank and mortgage servicing clients, and intruding on the power of the local court.
