Prominent West Palm Beach attorney Gerald Richman successfully defended the law firm Shapiro & Fishman in quashing an August attorney general’s subpoena issued as part of the foreclosure investigations. Richman supports the attorney general’s decision to get rid of Edwards and Clarkson.

“The only way to describe it was total arrogance on their part,” Richman said about his interactions with the attorneys. “We went down to meet with them and we were met with disdain.”

Of course you were met with disdain… What did you expect?

State defends ousters of foreclosure investigators

By Kimberly Miller

Florida’s latest foreclosure fracas involving the ousting of two state investigators drew clear sides Friday after an attorney general’s statement that performance, not politics, caused the forced resignations.

Former assistant attorneys general Theresa Edwards and June Clarkson, who were the office’s lead foreclosure fraud investigators, were told May 20 to resign immediately or be fired.

The statement was in contrast to written evaluations conducted before and after Attorney General Pam Bondi took office that gave the women positive reviews.

But attorneys who went up against Edwards and Clarkson –– who acknowledged an unbiased opinion would be hard to come by –– said Friday they had complaints about their professionalism and called them overly aggressive.
