MORE BREAKING NEWS — OPEN RECORDS ACT REQUEST FOR HEARING TRANSCRIPT!
Just to let you know that the author of this post and his WKDW-FM 97.5 Radio Co-host R. J. Malloy are NOT taking the Florida Supreme Court hearing involving Florida Bar charges of professional misconduct against Florida attorney Mark Stopa lying down, a team of attorneys and this author drafted an Open Records Act request to the Clerk of the Supreme Court, demanding a copy of the Florida judge’s remarks as part of the transcript, to further analyze it to find out whether or not to bring in a team of attorneys to sue the State of Florida Legislature, each state legislator personally and in their individual capacity, the Florida Attorney General (for not doing something to prevent potential conflicting legislation from being enforced) and the Florida Bar and the Judicial Qualifications Commission of the State of Florida who had to have known the implications of the legislation that rewarded judges’ behavior in foreclosure courts across the state with bonuses based on performance in clearing foreclosure dockets. Read the request here:
We will be following up on this in short order and are still looking into the “rewards program” for judges. It disturbs us (the team of attorneys I am in communication with) that collectively, as both lawyers and non-lawyers, that the legislature could stoop so low as to “reward bad behavior” in the denial of due process rights by passing legislation incentivizing foreclosure court judges to quickly clear off their dockets in order to get these bonuses.
We are just getting word that the Supreme Court of Florida plans on suspending Stopa’s license to practice law for one year. Generally, attorneys have thirty (30) days to clear off their case loads and close their practices after getting formal notice. We are awaiting further news on the latest developments.

BREAKING NEWS, OP-ED —
The sinking feeling that overcomes Florida homeowners entering the foreclosure arena (the Sunshine State’s version of a 3-ring circus aka “rocket docket”) was finally manifested in the case against Florida attorney Mark Stopa, who has been at the center of controversy for being abrasive before these judges, resulting in possible disbarment for professional misconduct.
In my book, when you win foreclosure cases (which means the banks lose), judges don’t like it … by that I mean having the obvious thrown in their faces; however … and we are trying to get the transcript from Stopa’s recent Florida Supreme Court hearing … it does appear that the deck has been inadvertently “stacked” against Florida homeowners in favor of not only the banks, but the judges hearing the cases as well! Think I’m exaggerating here? Take a look at what Stopa posted on this Facebook page:
Even with the glare of the screenshot covering up the word “notable”, what is hard to fathom is how Florida foreclosure court judges are seemingly on the “take” when it comes to clearing off their court dockets and how they were incentivized by the Florida legislature. So, does this mean that Pam Blondie is going to investigate this scheme? Not likely. She wouldn’t investigate the OSCEOLA COUNTY FORENSIC EXAMINATION, which Stopa’s buddy Matt Weidener snubbed on Orlando television. These two aren’t “holier than thou” in my book; however, I am willing to concede that the testimony from this hearing is probably damning in more ways than one and could have only happened at Stopa’s expense. What makes these allegations (in the form of testimony from a judge included) make things any different? Felonies are felonies and judges handling foreclosure cases appear to have gone right along with the scheme of things. Among the rumors … that judges financially profited from the scheme based on their “performance”!
If the transcript (which trust me … is going to be gone over with a fine-toothed comb) bears any other significant testimony, you can bet we’ll use it against the judges in Florida’s foreclosure courts relative to Florida Criminal Code § 817.535 cases. The Florida States’ Attorneys have every opportunity to launch their own independent investigations but none, including the recently-elected Aramis Ayala (in Florida’s 9th Circuit) have lifted a damned finger to investigate and prosecute any of this suspect behavior.
Exactly how many legislators and judges have been paid off by the banks to facilitate this fraud? The stuff contained within the Stopa Facebook post seems to parallel the Volusia County judicial rag that told judges there that their “performance” was being monitored and if they knew what was good for them, they’d tow the line and clear their foreclosure dockets! If one of their own has come clean and testified to the Florida Supremes that this sort of crap behavior is going on, then I say, it’s time to unseat every damned Florida foreclosure judge and every legislator that fell victim to this corruption (the next best thing to tar and feathers or the stocks) and hang their sorry ass political careers out to dry.
When you incentivize a Florida foreclosure judge, what do you think he’ll/she’ll do? Of course they want to go out with a financial bang!
How many of these judges are pedophiles? Has anyone ever investigated how much pornography is on these judges’ computers?
It seems we can’t shake these rumors. All one has to do is examine the number of prosecutions were conducted by the Florida Judicial Qualifications Commission (JQC) and a lot of the so-called “disciplinary” actions seem lame when you compare what came out in Stopa’s hearing about the incentivizing of a foreclosure judge? Has anyone investigated the Florida judges for acquiring property through the very own foreclosure hearing they ruled upon? We’d like to hear about it. If you have pictures or recorded documents of Florida judges acquiring foreclosed homes … this represents a clear conflict of interest and a bigger part of the conspiracy to defraud Florida homeowners. Hell, it represents serious criminal activity, obviously spearheaded by some serious bank lobbying in Tallahassee.
Stay tuned! We’re going to figure out a bigger mousetrap given this testimony and we expect to have that scenario to present to you in the upcoming FORECLOSURE DEFENSE WORKSHOP … because now … given this diatribe (seen in the screenshot above) … the judge has now become an additional target. This also means that given the testimony, it is possible that thousands of foreclosure cases could be vacated and reopened in order to vet judicial involvement. I don’t think you realize the implications this testimony has brought out … yet.
