The collapse of the Law Offices of David J. Stern is causing chaos and costing taxpayers millions of dollars. Clerks of Court, judicial assistants and judges across this state are left sorting through files and processing Stipulation to Withdraw paperwork and generally left to try and sort out the mess. That costs every single taxpayer money. Multiply that by hundreds of thousands of files in counties all across the state and you’re talking a massive burden on this state’s taxpayers. Meanwhile, the clients, including Fannie and Freddie, must now go through each of their files to assess just what kind of a mess they have on their hands. The resulting time and attorneys fees will add many months and millions of dollars into the mess.
When the general public and taxpayers are paying for all of this, I have a real problem when the Fat Cats that caused all of this are not forced to pay the costs….where is any justice, any equality, any fundamental fairness in all of this? Where are all the managers and lawyers and bright financial people that put all of this together? I bet they’re still driving their obscenely expensive cars, living in obscene castles, with obscene boats.
How do our government leaders allow this to continue? Why no handcuffs? When will Florida’s Attorney General step up, speak out and release findings from the on-going investigation? Many mechanism exist to try and reclaim some of the costs, but the most black and white immediate way is to dismiss all pending David J. Stern cases which are not verified and force them to be refiled under the rules mandated by the Florida Supreme Court to protect all consumers.
HOW CAN OUR COUNTRY EVERY REGAIN OUR PROWESS IF WE HAVE LOST THE WILL TO METE OUT JUSTICE?
