Forget about the new foreclosure legislation (which we are appealing and which will be thrown out)…the biggest story by far that’s hitting foreclosure cases in Florida is a just-released opinion by the Florida Supreme Court that will have Foreclosure cases heard not by judges…not even senior judges….but by magistrates……
But it gets even more insane….the magistrates appointed….
CANNOT PRACTICE IN THE AREA OF FORECLOSURE LAW.
So now we’re going to have non-judges presiding over foreclosure cases……THAT’S INSANE!
From the release:
We have for consideration an emergency petition proposing amendments to Florida Rule of Civil Procedure 1.490 (Magistrates) filed by the Trial Court Budget Commission (Commission).
