Did RoboSigning Attorneys Knowingly Commit Fraud On The Court?
Some people are dismissing troubled homeowners’ complaints that they were lied to about the terms of their mortgages. After all, the borrowers should have read what they were signing. But when it comes to the so-called robo-signers at the banks or Lender Processing Services (LPS), the same critique should be equally valid: By signing documents without reading them, the mortgage processors were lying under oath.
But the people who deserve the greatest scorn for their behavior in the foreclosure document scandal are the robo-signing lawyers and their colleagues who submitted robo-signed documents to the courts. These attorneys should be facing discipline and perhaps disbarment for their actions. After all, when we talk of homeowners and robo-signers at banks, we speak of people who should have known better — and that’s the lawyers’ job.
Just how aware some lawyers are of how far wrong the foreclosure business has gone — and the professional risks they run by participating in it — is revealed by the deposition of Tammie Lou Kapusta, a former paralegal at the Law Offices of David J. Stern. Amid all the depressing details of precisely how that foreclosure mill abused the rule of law are lots of comments about how the attorneys, generally inexperienced, were terrified of being disbarred or disciplined for what they were doing, but were also terrified of losing their jobs, given the terrible legal job market.
Now, when you click here for the rest of the story, see if you can catch what the real issue is…and just to help you out, the real disgusting this is how long this whole mess has slogged out…..nothing’s changed, nothing has happened…..just the long, slow, decline of our nation’s legal system, the biggest scar on a once proud and noble idea here in the entire State of Florida.
