Did RoboSigning Attorneys Knowingly Commit Fraud On The Court?

robo-signingOkay, before you get started on this article, there is a special and disturbing twist that comes at the end…..Here’s the article…..
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.

    Yes, Matt, thank you for bringing this up. I think about the misprison of a felony doctrine almost everyday. But then, it is basically fruitless to hope that the courts and attorneys uphold the law.
    Title 18 U.S.C. § 4. Misprision of felony. Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
    A federal judge, or any other government official, is required as part of the judge’s mandatory administrative duties, to receive any offer of information of a federal crime. If that judge blocks such report, that block is a felony under related obstruction of justice statutes, and constitutes a serious offense.
    Upon receiving such information, the judge is then required to make it known to a government law enforcement body that is not themselves involved in the federal crime.

    It is amazing that this article was written in October, 2010 and we still have no disbarment proceedings against any of the lawyers involved in the document fabrication process as far as I know. Steven J. Baum paid a fine of $2M.
