I’ve been screaming since February that it was improper for the Millionaire Foreclosure Mills to ignore the Rules of the Supreme Court of Florida by continuing to file foreclosure complaints that are not verified as required by the rule.
I have respectfully suggested that it was appropriate judicial policy for the courts to Sua Sponte or on their own initiative review all foreclosures filed since the February 17, 2010 and dismiss those cases that are not verified.
I AM PLEASED TO REPORT THAT THE COURT IN THE TWELFTH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT IS APPARENTLY DOING JUST THAT!
Attached here is a copy of the Order. This is a clear and very appropriate Order and process that should be adopted by circuits all across the state of Florida because it is an appropriate sanction for the flagrant abuses by the Millionaire Foreclosure Mills and quite frankly, this is an important fiscal policy issues. The citizens of the State of Florida should not be absorbing the costs of judicial administration just because these Millionaire Foreclosure Mills decide they want to flaunt the rules of the State of Florida.
Taxpayers and consumers need to rise up and demand that their Clerks in each circuit adopt the very same policy that has been adopted in the Twelfth Judicial Circuit. The average citizen should not be forced to bear the financial costs that non-compliance with these important rules costs.
Enough is enough… great job for…
