Foreclosure Defense Florida

The Banks, Bullying “Our” Court Sytem…And WINNING!

fl-foreclosure-mediationEveryone knows the drill, right?   The banks don’t like mediation in Florida because it “would have” forced them to come to the table and negotiate in good faith with the taxpayers that bailed them out three years ago.

So what do the banks to?   The assassinate the entire program….statewide.   Now think about that power.   Just a few short months ago, state policy makers, legislators and court officials….THE SUPREME COURT OF FLORIDA no less spend millions of dollars to implement a statewide system that gives homeowners the right to participate in mediation. Pay attention to that key phrase, THAT GIVES HOMEOWNERS A RIGHT.

But what our “leaders” give, the banksters taketh away.   The banks didn’t like the program, so they kill it.   But they’re not just killing a program, they’re exercising their power to assassinate your liberties, to take out a hit squad on your rights.

It’s ugly, but that’s the world we live in today.   Read the article, but importantly, read the comments from your fellow comrades:

A Florida Supreme Court mediation program should end because it hasn’t kept people in their homes or reduced a logjam of foreclosure cases, a judicial committee determined.

Successful mediations occurred in less than 4 percent of statewide cases. A report presented to the high court said three main factors led to the program’s demise: borrowers not trusting the program; lenders not willing to settle cases in mediation; and officials not publicizing the program.

Florida has a backlog of about 350,000 foreclosures and many more to come, experts say.

    Matt, check out what Neil Garfield over at LivingLies has just blogged today on a Missouri court ruling. You can find it at

    The implications are mind-numbing. Remember the Glarum vs. LASALLE BANK NATIONAL ASSOCIATION, as Trustee for Merrill Lynch Mortgage Investors Trust, Mortgage Loan Asset-Backed Certificates, Series 2006-FFI??? – In which both parties have moved to re-hear? Well, a more careful read of the fraudclosing plaintiff’s identity indicates that the lower court fraudclosure action, the defense of Appeal, and now the Motion for Re-Hearing have ALL been filed by a mere stack of papers (“certificates”).

    As the Judge in Missouri states:
    “The court finds that HSBC Bank USA, National Association, as Trustee for Nomura Home Equity Loan, inc., Asset-Backed Certificates, Series 2005-HE1 is not a “person” under the auspices of either section. They are certificates, which have buyers and sellers, and have no legal standing to sue.”

    “The Movant/Petitioner has no standing to sue because they do not
    qualify under either RSMo. 473.020 or 472.010. The petition is therefore dismissed.”

    I don’t know if this point was ever made by Ice Legal or the predecessor counsel.
