Stern error means two buy same house

It looked like a bargain — a four-bedroom Cutler Bay house for $95,000.
But when investor Marjorie Oster’s husband drove to look at the house
they had just purchased the day after the auction, they found someone
cleaning the pool and a law service cutting the grass. The house had, in
fact, been purchased by someone else — Osberto Jimenez, a truck
driver. The law firm handling the foreclosure for the lender was David
Stern’s, according to CitiMortgage’s new attorneys. “So we both own the
same house and I’m frustrated as hell,” said Oster. “Someone screwed
up.” [Sun
