Florida’s Courts Are Funded With Less Than 1% of The State Budget
The banks pay a $900 filing fee for a foreclosure case, then with that one case they can choke and clog up our courts for years. The courts are fighting against their incompetence and bungling, managing their filings and their hearings for years. Even after a Final Judgment is granted, the banks may fight for years against setting a sale.
Judges work tirelessly to try and close cases and there are milestones when they close cases out….but a ticking time bomb buried in all foreclosure cases is the fact that the Plaintiffs can reopen them up to five years after the foreclosure sale to enter a deficiency judgment. Just think about that…our courts are already struggling under the weight of the foreclosure mess…and now the banks can reopen cases and clog our courts all over again….just think about the tragic unfairness of paying $900 to drag our court system into the abyss all the while continuing to pursue the very taxpayer that pays for the implements of his own destruction.
