Foreclosure firm Ben-Ezra & Katz in lawsuit

April 22, 2011 04:12PM

Susan Marie Harris, a Pensacola resident, has filed a lawsuit in federal
court against Fort Lauderdale-based Ben-Ezra & Katz, alleging that
the firm, which specialized in foreclosures, relied on a kickback scheme
to acquire a significant portion of the processing market. Harris’ suit
claims that Ben-Ezra was part of a group of firms that were involved in
a fee-splitting arrangement with Lender Processing Services, which is
based in Jacksonville. Ben-Ezra’s founding partner, Marc Ben-Ezra, was cited
for contempt
by Circuit Judge Maxine Lando in Feburary. [Miami
