Florida’s “foreclosure king” David J. Stern has been hit with another lawsuit, this time over $2 million in payments the disbarred attorney allegedly owes to a Miami-based process serving company.

The suit was filed by Gissen & Zawyer Process Service, which partnered with Stern and his firm Law Offices of David J. Stern PA to serve foreclosure actions on residences, a publication reported.

The company is seeking $1.9 million plus interest for services that allegedly went unpaid from 2009 to 2011.

DJSP Enterprises, Stern’s publicly traded company that handled his practice’s back-office functions, was also named in the suit, according to a report from Law360.

Stern was disbarred by the Florida Supreme Court in 2014 due to his firm’s misconduct while handling nearly 118,000 cases per day. The Plantation-based law office grew to 154 attorneys and 1,200 employees total during its peak operation. [Law360]Sean Stewart-Muniz
