  • 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][more]
