FORECLOSURE CLASS ACTION–MASSIVE ATTACK! Figueroa v. MERS and David Stern

This is some real good writing here folks:

It is universally understood that professionalism requires attorneys to
exercise restraint in the practice of law. Flame-throwing and hyperbole are frowned
upon, and this would seem to be especially true in appellate work. There are times,
however, when restraint and modulation seem to be at odds with the dedicated
attorney’s desire, and indeed obligation, to get his or her point across in an effective
manner.
In this case, the friction between orthodoxy and advocacy is ratcheted skyward
by the omnipresent and potentially prejudicial mischaracterizations of Appellant’s
case and legal theory contained in the district court’s dismissal order and the
Appellees’ brief. The polite language of the traditional legal lexicon would seem
inadequate to sufficiently express the degree of disapproval with which such
statements should rightly be received by any and all honorable courts, including the
one before whom Appellant is now privileged to press his cause. Whether the result
of intentional misdirection, or the subconsciously selective analysis of Appellant’s
case and pleadings, these false descriptions of Appellant’s claim are sorely in need
of repudiation by this Court. Justice demands nothing less.
