(BREAKING NEWS — OP-ED) — URGENT! URGENT! URGENT!
The author of this post is relaying the latest information as it’s coming to us out of the court record as it relates to the way “the system of things” is supposed to operate. This is for your educational benefit as it shows where the judge did the right thing!
(ORLANDO, FLORIDA) — A Florida Circuit Court Judge has put the brakes on a foreclosure sale by setting an evidentiary hearing after a Motion to Vacate was filed by the homeowner’s attorney and an emergency meeting was held to determine the legal objections of an attempt by Nationstar Mortgage LLC and the real party in interest (Fannie Mae) to steal a property belonging to Jonathan Mack, the defendant homeowner in this case. I am not simply regurgitating the excitable phone call I received early this afternoon (on the 15th of January, 2019) from parties familiar with the case. It appears there will be expert testimony presented in this upcoming hearing.
It is a known fact that the foreclosure mill of Robertson, Anschutz & Schneid is involved (representing Nationstar). Through the pleadings and assignments, they managed to get a judge (Weiss) to agree with them and the judge allowed the foreclosure. See the Certificate of Sale below:
It is amazing how other bidders attempted to purchase the property, only to be beat out by $100 by Fannie Mae (ain’t that something). I surmise that it wasn’t over the objection to the sale by the then-homeowner’s attorney, Chris Lim:
My understanding is … is that the former attorney wasn’t doing much of anything (typical of the way most foreclosure mill attorneys treat their annuity clients), until a new attorney that “gets it” stepped in, filed the motion and set an emergency hearing.
If the proof is in the pudding (as it were), the attorney obviously got through to the judge:
We anticipate expert witness testimony will take place at this hearing, followed by a formal Bar Complaint by the expert witness attorney against all lawyers from the foregoing law firm who participated in this fraud on the court (once determined). Only a judge can “do the right thing” and make that determination.
If you’re an attorney … and you lie to the Court … you should be dealt with before the state bar. THIS is how the system of things is supposed to work.
You have to get to this point in the proceedings. It does NOT have to come to full steam at the point that THIS case did. This point does NOT come all by itself. This point is part of a strategy that sadly, most homeowners don’t want to consider until it’s too late. This could have been dealt with in discovery, IF foreclosure defense attorneys (I’m not saying they’re all ignorant of how to conduct proper discovery) did the right thing when they were supposed to. Some foreclosure defense attorneys have taken clients’ money and done nothing.
