Broward judge joins foreclosure mill

May 19, 2011 10:50AM

Broward County Chief Judge Victor Tobin is heading to a foreclosure
mill, leaving his post in June for the Law Offices of Marshall C. Watson
in Fort Lauderdale. “I wish to express my sincere thanks to each judge
for permitting me the honor of being your Chief Judge during the last
four years,” he wrote in a letter to the county’s judges. “I appreciate
the confidence you placed in me.” Watson’s firm settled a state
investigation into its foreclosure practices in March, paying $2 million
but admitting no wrongdoing. “Chief Judge Victor Tobin has served
Broward County honorably for the past 15 years,” Watson said in a
statement. “His leadership will serve our firm very well, particularly
in overseeing our managing attorneys and ensuring best practices and
procedure are enhanced.” [Palm
