I would like to apologize to all the Foreclosure Mills out there (excuse me, I mean Most Excellent Law Firms). I, and other members of the press had been using the term in a derogatory manner, but according to a State Senator, this is not at all fair:
“In most occupations, whether it’s making doughnuts or running a sporting goods store, having more volume is better than having less volume. It may, in fact, be a commentary on your capability and your competitive advantage rather than something that we should disparage,” Negron said. “Foreclosure mill could also be called very busy law firm because you provide excellent service to your clients.”
I mean WOW! That’s just incredible. SCARY. Terrifying. The problem is, this is the mindset that permeates Tallahassee. The legislature is absolutely incredulous at the Florida Supreme Court and a primary reason for it is the Verified Complaint Rule. I mean,
HOW DARE THE SUPREME COURT PASS A RULE THAT REQUIRES LITIGANTS TO TELL THE TRUTH!
In one early signal of the petulant legislature’s rage, there is a proposal to split up the Florida Supreme Court. That’s just one example of the lashing out that is coming…..There are bad, bad things brewing in Ye Olde Capitol. I’m just betting that somethings will come out of this session that will gut foreclosure defense and will make some penance or forgiveness for all the past wrongdoing. If you think the Rocket Docket was bad, just wait until this session is over….methinks an evil wind this way blows.
