Presentation details foreclosure mess.
The Florida Attorney General's office has outlined sweeping
evidence of its case for foreclosure justice in a 98-page presentation
titled "Unfair, Deceptive and Unconscionable Acts in Foreclosure
Cases." The presentation was given in early December at a
conference of the Florida Association of Court Clerks and Comptrollers.
The presentation looks at copies of allegedly forged signatures, false
notarizations, bogus witnesses and improper mortgage assignments.
"What we got from this is the state has had the opportunity to see
where the laws have been broken, and frankly, it is in large part thanks
to the work of defense attorneys," said Palm Beach County Clerk Sharon Bock. "They've been bringing these defenses up in
foreclosure cases for years now." [Palm Beach Post]
