I will write much more on this later, for now based on what happened today, I’m busy going through my files to make sure they’re all in order and reviewing my office and court procedures from top to bottom. Attached here is the Motion for Contempt that started all of this:
Later, I will post the judge’s actual order and a transcript of the proceedings. Importantly, the judge in this case has acknowledged what a tremendous drain on taxpayer resources the current foreclosure mill operations represent. She reserved jurisdiction on this case to pursue in direct criminal contempt charges and held open an Order imposing fines of $7,000 per day against the firm for failing to take immediate corrective action.
Perhaps the most important point to take from all of this is that judges are not obliged to simply enter Summary Judgment in every case. There are additional options. Our judges and our courts have powers and steps they can take to insure cases either proceed or are dismissed by the court.
I’m going back to reviewing my files….much more on this later!
