Shapiro & Fishman Accuses McCollum of Grandstanding, Files Motion to Quash Subpoena in Palm Beach County Circuit Court

Hmmm…

Now this is interesting…

Shapiro & Fishman accuses McCollum of grandstanding

South Florida Business Journal – by Paul Brinkmann

Some excerpts from the report…

Law firm Shapiro & Fishman has accused Attorney General Bill McCollum of pre-election grandstanding and “abuse of power” in connection with McCollum’s recent announcement that his office is conducting a foreclosure fraud investigation into that firm and two others.

The allegations are in response to a coordinated investigation announced by McCollum during an Aug. 10 press conference. McCollum said his office is looking at whether the three South Florida firms engaged in unfair and deceptive actions in their handling of foreclosure cases.

The firm’s response came Friday in a motion to quash a subpoena in Palm Beach County Circuit Court.

Now, before you go over to the South Florida Business Journal to read the rest of the report, which I suggest you do, lets review what is above…

Specifically;

The firm’s response came Friday in a motion to quash a subpoena in Palm Beach County Circuit Court.

Why, do you ask…

Well, I am no expert on getting subpoenaed by the Attorney General, but I do have an inquisitive mind…

Is it because Shapiro and Fishmans’ attorney, Gerald Richman of Richman Greer, is located in Palm Beach County?

Or is it because Gerald Richman of Richman Greer is so tight with PBC Chief Judge Peter Blanc they decided that would be their best venue?

Quote from the Daily Business Review

After a call was made to Sasser’s office seeking comment, attorney Gerald Richman of Richman Greer in West Palm Beach called the Review. He said he “heard” about the article and wanted to speak in support of the judge on behalf of the American Board of Trial Advocates, which he said normally responds to what might be “unfair criticism of judges.”

When pressed about how he found out the Review was working on this article, he said Palm Beach Circuit Chief Judge Peter Blanc asked him to call in support of Sasser, who is prevented from commenting about pending cases and motions for recusal by judicial canon.

You can check out that full article here…

Never understood why they would send in an attorney that represents a foreclosure mill to defend a Judge that was being accused of favoring foreclosure mills, but who am I to question that decision…

I guess Blanc and Richman must be pretty good friends for him to call on him like that…

Anyway, it might be nothing, but my tinfoil hat has been acting up lately so one never knows…

And for the record, these investigations have been going on since late last year. It takes a while to build cases as complex as this.

It has nothing to do with “Grandstanding”. It has to do with the consequences of not responding to these issues when they were in fact known.

How would it look for McCollum if he sat on all the information that has been provided to his office and chose not to do anything about it then the public found out about it? I would say, devastating…

Still think he is “Grandstanding”? Do a Freedom of Information Act Request on his office relating to all the evidence they have on these firms and decide for yourselves.

I promise you won’t be disappointed…

I know I plan on doing one…

    In order for the Judicial system, in fact for any system including government, to operate they must have the trust and confidence of the people. If no one supports or cooperates with the judicial system because it does not meet out justice in a fair and impartial way, people will employ self-help. The net result is anarchy. There are more of us then there are of “them”. If they think the military will protect them, they will be wrong. The military is composed of “us” not “them”. History is very illuminating on that note. We are quickly getting to a tipping point. It isn’t going to be pretty. They may want to rethink their position but arrogance and denial are powerful forces. Think French Revolution on this one.

  3. They’ll try to say he’s grandstanding…But their more than corrupt! I know 1st hand how I’ve been treated for stopping the theft of homes and all their corruption. But remember their not the only one’s in on the fraud. There’s plenty of judges, trustees, and consumer attorney’s in on this theft as well!

    I find it interesting that everyone talks about wanting to resolve the issues. Instead they recuse and sweep it under the rug like your a doormat or shit on the sidewalk. I blame all the Attorney Generals, Counties, county prosecutors, State Judges as well. Look if you can’t go to court and tell the truth w/o them removing court documents or lying about you your in big trouble!

    Here’s for the Shapiro Boys:I LOVE YOUR COMMENTS….HEY SHAPIRO BOYS WATCH THIS! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8VDTAIqOouM&feature=search

    These boys will LIE LIE LIE….Their part of a network like u won’t believe. I almost wonder if we’ll all make it thru their FINANCIAL TERRORISM! U must remember their boys are sitting at the fed as fed govs probably seriously…So which one of us is taken out like a mob hit next guys?

    You can have your minons refuse to represent homeowners. Remove adversaries from a court record and everything else…It won’t silence the TRUTH! I sure hope I get called to testify against these lying neverminds! They’ve known all along what their doing!

    Here’s what I find amazing these people all claim to want to HELP THE PEOPLE! Yet all they try to do is DENY the TRUTH IN FRONT OF THEM! Tell them the TRUTH…the JUDGES THAT IS AND THEY REC– USE AWAY….I’m living proof of this….so are others…I hope Jack don’t mind but Jack Wright of Msfraud.org had his home stolen to…there are several of us…But they get to lie and have judicial immunity for outright stealing homes w/Shapiro…I loved the fact you found that on their Chicago building…but also remember someone that isn’t being called on any of this yet is FANDO who we found out in the Jenny Riveria case Shapiro sold their law firm to or whatever. Then this year they changed the registration at the sec of state in mo for NARS. Wonder who got paid for their big investor coming in? Hig Equity I think the name of it is w/over 7.5b in assets or something…

    My former manager who was a tyrant at NARS I found out has had problem paying chld support, has a $40,000 tax lien, a previous chp 7 and a Chase mortgage to boot….These guys are the MEN IN BLACK suits and black caddies and all! And boy I wonder how much they spend taking Citi their client out to all the strip clubs and liquor they can handle….Maybe they should pull in Mr. Buehrle and Patterson…

    Never will forget the phrase “They placed it here! They know its here! NOW COLLECT IT! Ignore anything a homeowner tells you! Needless to say I’d call Chase and in 5 mins of my inquiry that account was gone from my cue and out of my office. I had and have a responsibility to do HONEST BANKING! My livelihood exsisted because of hardships. That doesn’t mean you outright lie to someone about everything they’ve ever known!

    GOD BLESS AMERICA! WHY AREN’T ALL THE STATES ON THESE BOYS??? Why do they get by with badgering attorneys and homeowners? Their NOT GOD! but after what i’ve lived thru these last few years nothing surprises me anymore!

  4. When I started focusing on the foreclosure crisis, I did so because I believed it was immoral and unethical for our country to condone, nay conduct, the eviction of millions of families from their American homes.

    Now, I see the problem as much, much worse; much more damaging to our country, much more terrifying. Our circuit courts have been corrupted, co-opted, and perverted by bankers, Wall Street financiers, companies that service mortgages, and the foreclosure mills.

    When the foreclosure crisis is all said and done, what will be of Florida’s judiciary? Rocket-docket whenever the caseload is overwhelming? Judges turning a blind eye to inadmissible, hearsay evidence? Local counsel who don’t set eyes on the case file until moments before a hearing, refuse to state the name of their client, and even refuse to state their own names. Law firm employees creating “evidence” to prove their clients’ cases? No respect for the orders of the state supreme court or the orders of the presiding judge? Heavy reliance on ex-parte orders to the detriment of due process? Lack of service of process, sewer service, or omitting parties on the Notice of Hearing mailing list? Closed door hearings? Prejudged defendants?

    Is Florida’s Circuit Courts new motto “It’s just foreclosure court. Who cares? We’ll go back to “normal” once we clear the backlog.”

    I HAVE BEEN READING THIS BLOG FOR A YEAR AND THIS IS THE FIRST STORY THAT MADE ME MAD ENOUGH TO POST A REPLY. JUDGES ARE SUPPOSED TO BE FAIR AND IMPARTIAL AND FOLLOW THE LAW. THE LAW OF THE DAY SEEMS TO BE MONEY AND POLITICS AND “WHO YOU KNOW” .. I KNOW FOR A FACT FISHMAN ET AL IS GUILTY OF DOCUMENT FRAUD. MCCULLOM IS DOING THE ABSOLUTE MINIMUM TO SAVE FACE DUE TO THE INCIDENT WITH ERIN C. WORKING AS A NOTARY AND THE SIGNATURES DON’T MATCH. HOW CAN ANYONE GET A FAIR HEARING OR A FAIR TRIAL IN THIS ENVIRONMENT???
