LIES | Court Responds to Public Records Request RE Judge Victor Tobin Joining Foreclosure Mill Marshall C. Watson

Now this is quite disturbing. A few weeks ago we submitted a public records request RE Judge Victor Tobin Joining Foreclosure Mill Marshall C. Watson.

Well, we just received the response and it is a total FAIL in my opinion.

Reply From 17th RE Tobin

Here are just a few reasons why…

First, we got our hands on an internal email originally posted at jaablog in where General Counsel requested that all the judges and their assistants voluntarily submit any of the requested items from our request to her on their own.

Under the ScopeHere is the email sent by General Counsel Alexandra Rieman to all judges regarding the Public Records Request into Vic Tobin’s and the judiciary’s relationship with the Marshall Watson law firm.  The request encompasses “(a)ll records … relating to discussions of employment and career opportunities, salary offers, salary negotiations … current employment exit strategy … and/or incentives regarding the employment of judges of the Seventeenth Judicial Circuit to or from any employee or representative of the Law Office of Marshall Watson … “, from June 1, 2010 to May 27, 2011.  We’re still trying to figure out who has made the request …

Now the first issue with this is you don’t ask the person that is potentially withholding information to search his own records and submit which he may be trying to hide.

Second, it appears that they did not even try to provide any information since they only sent his resignation letter.

We actually found that there was at least one other communication RE Judge Victor Tobin Joining Foreclosure Mill Marshall C. Watson that they intentionally did not provide which we had already posted on this site…

Late this afternoon, I notified Governor Scott that I would be resigning as a Circuit Judge effective June 30, 2011.  Effective July 1, 2011, I will return to private practice with the Law Offices of Marshall C. Watson.  I wish to express my sincere thanks to each judge for permitting me the honor of being your Chief Judge during the last four years.  I appreciate the confidence you placed in me.

Wonder why we did not receive that with our request? What else did we not get?

That alone destroys the credibility of their response. We will continue on with our efforts until we get to the truth.

    Keep up the pressure, do not give up, many many people are behind you, Judge Tobin is dirty as they come. The Truth goes where it goes.

    Fraud is fraud. The Law is the Law. If a private individual ever tried to submit these types of forged/robo signed documents on the Court they would be in jail before the sun set. HUGE double standard that we are held to.

    They (the Banks, Florida judges, Florida lawyers, Florida bar) can try and cover it up but they can NOT change the facts of what they have done.

    The Banks forged documents, robo signed everything, the Lawyers submitted it and are now culpible, and the Judges allowed it.

    What kind of Lawyer submits affidavits to the Court and does not read or research them for validity?

    What kind of Judge robo stamps foreclosures in a rocket docket without ensuring at least an ounce of due process for the homeowner?

    Banks already got paid by investors for all the mortgages they are now claiming they can foreclose on. Banks are only trying to double dip for bigger bonuses. Banks created this mess and now should be prosecuted for every one of the fraudulent documents they submitted to the Courts for financial gain.

    Looks like next election we need to clean out the Judicial branch and find some ethical Judges to oversee that our rights and liberty being properly represented.

    @Lit Grant – I do think you’re right that government employees often don’t have the tools or training or inclination to effectively respond to public records request. I am curious, though, about the “atheist” property appraiser – how did his lack of religious beliefs impede the proper performance of his duties?

    NO Comment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh, what a tangled web you weave when you first try to deceive.

    It looks like someone has put their job on the line and exposed themselves to criminal charges to help cover up some unethical and possibly illegal conduct by Judge Tobin and Marshall Watson.

    See Florida Statutes § 119.10 – Violation of Chapter; Penalties

    119.10 Violation of chapter; penalties.—
    (1) Any public officer who:
    (a) Violates any provision of this chapter commits a noncriminal infraction, punishable by fine not exceeding $500.
    (b) Knowingly violates the provisions of s. 119.07(1) is subject to suspension and removal or impeachment and, in addition, commits a misdemeanor of the first degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083.
    (2) Any person who willfully and knowingly violates:
    (a) Any of the provisions of this chapter commits a misdemeanor of the first degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083.
    (b) Section 119.105 commits a felony of the third degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084.
    History.—s. 10, ch. 67-125; s. 74, ch. 71-136; s. 5, ch. 85-301; s. 2, ch. 2001-271; s. 11, ch. 2004-335.

    Of course, the question as usual is will the regulators regulate and will the prosecutors prosecute, and naturally, since all of the prosecutors are on the banksters’ payroll, the answer is no.

    Freedom of government information is a public right.

    This happened to me once years ago. When they provided nothing I sent another request that I wanted to come in, in person and review all public files. What you got was a “go-away” letter.

    Any files related to my search I wanted collected or be told where they existed so I could go to that office and review them. They stalled me. Saying it was to big a problem. They did not know where all the files were. So I said just point me to the file records of employee so and so and I will check the file cabinet myself. Eventually after six months they collected a lot of stuff in boxes and called me. I went and they had mixed in all kinds of stuff, stuff I did not request. But I kept digging. And at last I found what I was searching for. My persistance changed the way churches were being singled out and taxed by an atheist property appraiser employee and the atheist property appraiser himself. The next election Ron Shultz was sent out of office. Keep asking. If they do not provide the documents it is because THEY DO HAVE SOMETHING TO HIDE.
