Florida Judicial Elections 2010:  Evict the Rocket Docket Offenders
By Guest Bloggers:

If you are the typical American citizen today, judicial elections have not exactly been front and center of your radar screen. If you are the typical American citizen today, the foreclosure crisis with its global impact has made its presence known in your home, bank account, paycheck, and savings.

If you are the typical American citizen today, you care about the judicial system.  Fairness and justice matter.  You want to trust that these two inviolable foundations of our court system will be there for you if you ever find yourself in front of a judge's bench.

Then it's time to get educated! 

Register to vote and be prepared to evict judges who are evicting millions of Floridians by granting wrongful foreclosures by the hundreds of thousands each year in rocket dockets where justice is based on what the banks' attorneys say is the truth, when what they say often directly conflicts with the facts.

It's a sad day indeed when we break out the champagne and celebrate wildly when Florida judges do the job of looking at the evidence with a critical eye and make a fair and just ruling.

The foreclosure crisis today is due to a very complex Wall Street con game.  Our government has chosen to allow millions of our fellow citizens to take the brunt of this crisis but some judges are starting to sit up, take notice, and put the breaks on the fraudulent foreclosures occurring in their courtrooms.

Judge Michael Traynor in St. Johns County recently threw out a foreclosure case because the bank couldn't get it's story straight.  Three times the bank tried to show evidence of its right to collect on the promissory note and foreclose the mortgage for non-payment.  The attorney for the homeowner simply asked the foreclosing bank to show how it had the right to foreclose on the family's home because another bank was listed as having that right.  Three times the bank produced conflicting "evidence" that changed to suit what the judge required before the lawsuit would be allowed to continue.  After the third time, the angry judge tossed the case out of court and scheduled an evidentiary hearing set for August 19th, 2010 where all the evidence would be reviewed and discussed.  At that hearing, this judge will determine if sanctions against the bank's foreclosure mill law firm will be appropriate and what those sanctions should be.

To celebrate attorneys who are asking simple questions and demanding answers and the judges that allow these questions to be asked, there is a Hero Appreciation Day in Boca Raton on June 25th where homeowners, tenants, real estate agents, mediators, title agents, paralegals, and housing activists can learn more about wrongful foreclosures as we honor the members of the Florida Bar and Bench who are on the side of the everyday Floridian up against the banks and their millionaire law firms.
