Florida AG Probe Into Sleazy Foreclosure Mills, Sweatshops Ends With A Dull Thud

In West Palm Beach, Florida, The Palm Beach Post reports:

  • Florida's once-heralded foreclosure mill investigations have fizzled as the attorney general's office has failed to find the right strategy to continue its pursuit and three law firms call for the cases to be dismissed.

  • [Last] week, an attempt to have the Florida Supreme Court weigh in on whether the state has the authority to subpoena the Law Offices of David J. Stern was denied by the 4th District Court of Appeal. The decision effectively ends the investigations into complaints that the firms doctored court paperwork in an attempt to speed foreclosures.
