‘Awful’ Florida Foreclosure Courts May Shut Down Due To GOP Budget Cuts

In a turn of events that consumer advocates are celebrating, Florida’s infamous “rocket docket” foreclosure courts may be on the verge of extinction, thanks to state budget cuts.

According to a document obtained by The Huffington Post, Palm Beach County has already started canceling foreclosure cases. “Because of the lack of funding from the Florida legislature, judges will be unable to preside over foreclosure trials beginning July 1, 2011,” the order reads.

Florida created its special foreclosure-only courts in order to prevent the enormous load of eviction cases from overwhelming other judicial functions. These courts earned their “rocket docket” label as judges began pushing through foreclosure cases as fast as possible, under circumstances that consumer advocates claim make it difficult for borrowers to receive a fair hearing. Judges routinely hear hundreds of cases in a day, with some hearings last as little as 20 seconds. Attorneys for homeowners say the courts do not receive sufficient funding to handle their caseloads.

Check out the rest of this one with Rick Scott’s comment at the end of the article here…

And it was also picked up at American Banker…

Docket Demise

Don’t hold your breath in Florida foreclosure court.

The special “rocket dockets” established by the state last year to help slog through the backlog of foreclosure filings will be gone as of July 1, potentially paralyzing the already overloaded court system with an influx of cases and delays.

Already there are signs of disruptions.

In one case in Palm Beach County, a court order was issued May 12 canceling a calendar call on July 22.

The order said that, “because of the lack of funding by the Florida Legislature, judges are unavailable to preside over foreclosure trials beginning July 1, 2011.”

I guess this is what happens when you can’t pay your bills…

    it is awesome to see so many comments being posted at Huffington post.
    Although Florida is getting bashed terribly-how sad most of it is true.
    This could be PRO or CON for us in Florida Fraudclosure Land ??
    After 3 yrs. of this, Pam Bondi & Rick Scott have only made it worse-appears to be getting even worse.
    It was great to comment/reply to those that still call us “Deadbeats”-just pay your bills people.
    Yes, I try to educate/inform and always post links to 4closurefraud.org and repost their links.
    Birds of a feather flock together……….we all need to be Eagles especially on the 4th of July.

    I think all the KISS MY ASS judges will go find work at Florida Defraud The Law Group. That will allow a one stop foreclosure fraud and they can all share the same pile of cocaine. Wow, what a concept.

    Judges are far over rated. Why they expect everyone to kiss their scumbag lying ass is beyond me.

    “Fight The Good Fight”

    Oh, their broke? To many chickens come home to roost?
    Don’t worry they just raised the fees on filing suits. I am sure the courts will find new ways of generating cash.
    Florida Courts and the justices within are known for dumassed, money influenced rulings, by corrupt inbred, nosepickers.

      No worry for banks/servicers if there is a Saturday Earthquake….
      They will collect the Insurance-Replacement costs.
      Banks are ripping off Insurance companies too !
      FEMA-for sure-I witnessed FEMA paying a Flood Claim to Owner&Bank $85,000. (eightfive thousand dollars). The owner had tenants-evacuated-water 3 feet high in newly remodled house.
      Servicer Foreclosed, kept the FEMA Check and never entered the $85 thousand deduction from the
      Court Approved Auction Figure-no record of it anywhere or Pay Off Balance for the Homeowner !
      Who got the INSURANCE ? It is the same with PRIVATE HOMEOWNERS INSURANCE-when you finally prove your claim & settle-THE BANKS TAKE THE FUNDS AND DO NOT APPLY TO THE MORTGAGES. Florida has a SINKHOLE PROBLEM-caused by POLITICIANS & BANKS & INSURANCE SUCKING IT ALL AWAY !
