The Supreme Court’s Response to Foreclosure Fraud- The Most Terrifying Indicator of The Real Trouble We’re In

grayson-foreclosuresI’m going to come clean and admit to all of you that I have become increasingly fearful and anxious about the future of this country for a very long time.   My primary concerns center on the fact that unemployment continues to grow steadily while at the same time government debt and entitlements have likewise continued to grow exponentially.   The unemployment problem represents a fundamental threat to our national and economic security because none of the other insurmountable problems we face can be addressed without sufficient employment.   Such is the case with the foreclosure crisis. If people are not working, no programs will ever be enough to solve the problems.   And yet I held out naive hope that our courts might fashion some solutions which might foster an environment of compromise and resolution.

This hope has effectively died with the release of today’s letter from the Florida Supreme Court.   While the text of it alone is disturbing enough, the subtext is even more disturbing.   Please note that while a ranking member of the United States Congress took the initiative to write this letter to the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, it was not the Chief Justice or any justice for that matter that responded, but the Clerk of the Supreme Court.   Perhaps there is some formality involved here, but for the letter to come not from a peer, but from the administrative level is very telling.   To me the message is loud and clear….


We really are in a very bad way here and I frankly don’t hold out much hope now of any kind of reasonable solution to the crisis that has now reached up into the highest levels of our state government.   Our only hope now is persistent press attention and federal intervention…..our Florida courts are apparently not willing to address the crisis in our courts…..

    I gave up along time ago. Everything at the top is corrupt.

    The most frightening aspect of the response by the FL Supreme Court is the fact that they do nothing, address nothing. I’m no constitutional scholar, by any stretch of the imagination. Maybe separation of powers prevented the granting of US Congressman Alan Grayson’s order.

    Within the FL Supreme Court’s jurisdiction might be the implementation of access to the courts, the right to face one’s accuser (as opposed to a stealth plaintiff), the right to be heard, the right to a fair and impartial adjudication based on the merits of a case, the right to have a judge rule AFTER a hearing as opposed to before one, the right to notice, the protection from judges inducing defendants to waive rights, the right to more than 30 seconds to present complex litigation issues of securities law, the right to invoke statutory protections, the right to due process, and equal protection under the law, the right to open access courts, and access to public records, etc THOSE are violated day in and day out in rocket docket and the silence on those issues is deafening and sickening.

    If the order could not have been granted, so be it, but to refuse to address the civil and constitutional rights violations is beyond comprehension.

    As Grayson said, “This is lawlessness” and if I may add, court approved, court condoned.

    So the court issued a “kiss off” letter essentially refusing to become involved.

    This is really bad.

    I will be voting on the 2nd in Palm Beach County. Can you suggest methods of researching the 4 Justice of the Supreme Courts, the 6 District Court of Appeal and the Nonpartisan County Court Judges?

    I would rather make an informed choice versus just removing them all which is my initial reaction.

    I basically do not believe that the Judicial system works well for the individual, unless, one has money to pay for justice.
