Appellate court deals foreclosure setback

November 12, 2010 10:30AM

The Fourth District Court of Appeal in West Palm Beach dealt a blow to
homeowners hoping to get their homes back, ruling that documents in
foreclosure cases signed by so-called robo-signers was not enough to
reverse a judgment of foreclosure and was not fraudulent, the court said
in its opinion Wednesday. Attorney Tom Ice cautioned that the ruling
was not a “death knell” for foreclosure defense because the case had two
basic flaws: the deposition used to prove robo-signing had been taken
in a separate case, and the questionable document was not brought to the
attention of the court until after a judgment had been made. [Palm
