FL 4th DCA | LAW OFFICE OF DAVID J. STERN, P.A., v. STATE OF FLORIDA, DEPARTMENT OF LEGAL AFFAIRS

DISTRICT COURT OF APPEAL OF THE STATE OF FLORIDA
FOURTH DISTRICT
July Term 2011
LAW OFFICE OF DAVID J. STERN, P.A.,
Appellant,
v.
STATE OF FLORIDA, DEPARTMENT OF LEGAL AFFAIRS,
Appellee.
No. 4D10-4708
[December 14, 2011]

STEVENSON, J.

This appeal stems from an order denying a petition to quash an investigative subpoena duces tecum, issued by the Florida Office of the Attorney General (the “OAG”) to the Law Office of David J. Stern, P.A. (“Law Firm”), pursuant to the Florida Deceptive a n d Unfair Trade Practices Act (FDUTPA). Because the OAG lacked authority under FDUTPA to issue the subpoena, we reverse.

    Right – they lacked the authority because the Florida Bar is the only organization that has authority. Besides Fannie & Freddie, GMAC has sued him for a litany of bad behavior

    Meanwhile, the head of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac — which represents about half of Stern’s prior caseload — is testifying to a livid Congress that he’s “puzzled” about why the FL Bar has failed to take any action on Stern.

    I’m puzzled too. At this point, I suspect most Floridian’s are. Maybe enough that it’s time to amend the FL Constitution by petition to change the makeup of the FL Bar’s attorney discipline committee so that it contains a majority of elected non-lawyers and eliminates the judicial immunity rule. Something tells me people, regardless of political persuasion, would happily sign off on those two provisions.

    The FL Bar has grossly failed to protect the businesses and the people of FL, and deserves to be held accountable.
