4ClosureFraud posted an entry which cheered Florida’s AG Pam Bondi for finally taking some action on the fraudclosure front. Two newspapers picked up the story and I did a post on it. We all thought the Petition meant something…but it doesn’t. The law is well settled…and it’s very, very bad law…..lawyers and law firms are immune from prosecution for unfair and deceptive practices. Asking the question posed to the Supreme Court at best is going to receive a very swift, “Lawyers Are Exempt” response. A response such as this is going to be very much like a hot poker shoved in the eye of the citizens who are suffering as part of this mess.
Now maybe the Supreme Court will take the position of Captain Obvious and tell the Attorney General…you’ve got a whole lotta other targets you could be going after. Like LPS…they’ve been in the news lately or David J. Stern Enterprises, they have not been in the news lately but should be. DJSP was a bad deal from the outset, and the evidence is laying all around. It’s in federal court cases. It’s in documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. It’s in depositions filed right there with the Florida Attorney General’s Office.
And so now that I’ve had a day to think about Bondi’s Motion, I feel suckered. The Motion itself lacks any substance and is not supported by the case law and examples that are necessary to make it a compelling legal document. I’m afraid it’s going to elicit a wet towel response from the Supreme Court and that’s only going to make citizens even angrier with lawyers than they already are. I don’t want that. I want lawyers and courts and my profession screaming, “DAMN THE TORPEDOES, WE’RE GONNA SOLVE THIS!” In the midst of this crisis I want to general public to see lawyers as the defenders of their rights and the defenders of the Rule of Law, stepping into the mess that the banksters created and shoving some justice and integrity down their monstorous throats….
That’s what Florida’s lawyers should be doing….not filing tepid motions that will lead nowhere.
