DEED in LIEU | ‘Zombie notes’ live to haunt deed transfers

DEED in LIEU | ‘Zombie notes’ live to haunt deed transfers


Thousands affected by Fannie Mae tactics

NEWS-PRESS

David Cruz Jr. got what he believed was a great offer in a foreclosure lawsuit filed against him by giant mortgage lender Fannie Mae.

If Cruz deeded the modest Fort Myers investment house back to Fannie Mae, the government-backed company would release him from the loan’s $123,750 note: the obligation underlying his mortgage.

He deeded the house back to Fannie Mae, but court records show he didn’t get what he bargained for.

FL Family Judge Marina Garcia-Wood To Take Over Foreclosure Division in July

FL Family Judge Marina Garcia-Wood To Take Over Foreclosure Division in July


Jaablog-

Jack Luzzo is replacing Marina Garcia-Wood in Family in July, with Luzzo to be replaced by Vic Tobin’s successor.  A Senior Judge covers Luzzo’s division until the appointment is made some months from now.  We’re hearing it’s Joel Lazarus.

It’s getting interesting …

Excerpt from the email:

Judge Marina Garcia-Wood has graciously offered to take over the foreclosure division in July. Recognizing the disruption that could occur in placing all of the pending foreclosure cases back into division, and after consulting with Judge Tuter, we have decided to maintain a separate foreclosure division. This will be done despite the lack of additional resources such as that appropriates through this fiscal year ending June 30th.

Before Joining Foreclosure Firm, Broward’s Chief Judge Created a System That Favors Banks

Before Joining Foreclosure Firm, Broward’s Chief Judge Created a System That Favors Banks


BPB NewsTimes-

If you’re a foreclosure defense lawyer doing work in Broward County, there are lots of reasons to think Chief Judge Victor Tobin doesn’t side with homeowners. In his tenure at the top of the county’s legal system, he has instituted rules that make it tougher on homeowners to fight foreclosures and resisted changes that would protect them from cases being rushed through the system.

Broward chief judge joining foreclosure firm; Palm Beach chief judge says more judges may resign

Broward chief judge joining foreclosure firm; Palm Beach chief judge says more judges may resign


PBPost-

Broward County Chief Judge Victor Tobin is resigning from the bench to work for the Law Offices of Marshall C. Watson, a South Florida firm that recently paid $2 million to settle a state investigation into its foreclosure practices.

Tobin, 64, announced late Tuesday in a four sentence e-mail to staff at the 17th Circuit Court that his last day will be June 30.

The news shocked foreclosure defense attorneys who said it is unusual for a judge with three years remaining in his term to leave the bench, and questioned the move to a so-called “foreclosure mill.”

Florida Judge Tobin Resigns, Returning to Private Practice with Law Offices of Marshall C. Watson

Florida Judge Tobin Resigns, Returning to Private Practice with Law Offices of Marshall C. Watson


According to JAABlog, Broward County Judge Victor Tobin wrote in an email notifying all judges, Gov. Scott that effective June 30, 2011 he will be resigning as Circuit Judge and that effective July 1, 2011 he will return to private practice with the Law Offices of Marshall C. Watson.

If you recall last October, the Miami Herald published an article about the rocket docket called “Florida judges face avalanche”, where they quote Judge Tobin as saying, “Batter up,” as he finished signing one stack of uncontested foreclosure cases and eyed the next.

What is very puzzling here is exactly when and how discussions came about of possibly working together with a law firm who is under such scrutiny? Inquiring minds do want to know…how this all took place.

Judges To Attorneys From Foreclosure Mills: Your License is on the Line!

Judges To Attorneys From Foreclosure Mills: Your License is on the Line!


One may have seen this coming, so what do they do…

Go NASDAQ BABY!

By: Matthew Weidner P.A.

For a brief period of time in the history of courts in Florida, lawyers engaged in a widespread and pervasive practice of submitting blatantly false evidence in courts.  This period of time began roughly when the foreclosure crisis moved from the mortgage and lending industries and into Florida courts.

Now that judges and courts have become aware of just how pervasive this practice was, individual efforts on the part of judges and systemic rule changes implemented by the Florida Supreme Court should signal the end of this era.  An article that appeared in the Sarasota Tribune and can be viewed here quotes a local judge, Robert Bennett from Sarasota who recently had one of his opinions reversed by the Second District Court of Appeals.  (Verizzo v. Bank of New York) Found here

In the article, the good judge admits that his initial ruling…in favor of the bank was incorrect.  The decision was a reflection of a judicial system that was totally overwhelmed by problems caused by the mortgage and lending institutions….they caused the problems then dumped their problems in the laps of absurdly understaffed courts and judges then said, “Here, you fix the mess we’ve created!”

It’s taken a while to identify the issues and to grasp the scope of the problem, but now that judges and court systems are aware that they were taken advantage of, the tide has shifted.  New rules and new cases, both from appellate courts and from sister courts, have made judges all over aware of the issues such that they are no longer willing to look the other way and sign off granting sale….when asked how he thinks Plaintiff’s attorneys will comply, Chief Judge Lee Hayworth (long a critic of sloppy Plaintiff practice) had this to say:

“I’m looking forward to see how they do comply,” Haworth said. “Their license could be on the line.”

Liberty and Justice Prevail When Good Judges Sit Firmly on The Bench!

ARE YOU SICK OF YOUR BANK'S FORECLOSURE ATTORNEY? DO YOU WANT TO NEUTRALIZE THEM AND STOP THEM FROM REPRESENTING THEIR CLIENTS? HERE IS HOW TO DO IT!

ARE YOU SICK OF YOUR BANK'S FORECLOSURE ATTORNEY? DO YOU WANT TO NEUTRALIZE THEM AND STOP THEM FROM REPRESENTING THEIR CLIENTS? HERE IS HOW TO DO IT!


Absorb these words from one who knows

what he speaks of…Mr. Paul Muckle

I warned these banks in 2007, “give the People a loan modification before they discover that you defrauded them, because woe be onto you when they find out”. Anyway, I figured out that was on to something so to buy time to think strategy, I demanded that my mortgage go from the $3,833.54 to $1,200 per month. The judge agreed and ordered that the mortgage payments was going to be $1,200 a month, and he also wiped out the $20,000 plus mortgage in arrears. This was too easy, they were willing to cater to me just to keep my brethren from feasting. The judge then ordered that I was to begin mortgage payments of $1,200 a month, but not to pay it to the lender, but to the court’s registry. My claims were still pending, even though I was paying the mortgage, I could still pursue my claims of mortgage fraud against the banks. But I saw the trap! The day I sign any papers accepting this payment modification, I the day that the case is SETTLED, and the banks would get away with robbery. The judge also gave me a stern warning, “Mr. Muckle, I am going to tell you this and please listen to me carefully”.. then he looked me into my dark brown cold eyes with is tender and sincere big blue ones, and said, ever so sincerely and meaningfully, “Mr. Muckle, do not win the battle and lose the war”. He really was looking out for mines and my children’s best interest. But as his mouth opened up and uttered those words, all I could really hear him saying to me was, “ Mr. Muckle, why settle for a battle when you can win the war?” Fight them my brother, I have your back!”.( Lol, I swear, that’s what heard). But to secure the order and bind me, the judge ordered in writing, “If the plaintiff do not begin to pay the money into the court’s registry as ordered, the defendant SHALL foreclose on the Plaintiff’s property and sell it” Huh! …continue HERE
