DAVID J. STERN v. STATE OF FLORIDA | Bondi’s Foreclosure Mill Request Denied, Investigation Stalled
The timing on this is a little suspicious… Was it set up intentionally to go down like this just before the fraudclosure settlement is finalized?
Bondi’s foreclosure mill request denied, investigation stalled
by Kim Miller
Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi’s request for the state Supreme Court to weigh in on failed bids to investigate foreclosure mills has been denied.
Bondi had asked in December that the 4th District Court of Appeal, which had quashed subpoenas against two law firms, to certify the question of whether she had the power to investigate the Law Offices of David J. Stern to the Supreme Court. She said in the request that unlawful practices have put homeowners at “considerable risk.”
The 4th DCA denied the request in a Wednesday decision with no explanation.
The request was lauded by some foreclosure defense attorneys and lawmakers as Bondi’s first aggressive move against the firms, which facedallegations of creating fraudulent court documents to foreclose on homes.
