Judge Demands Proof That BofA Served Adverse Possession-Claiming Crackpot With Legal Papers Before Awarding Monetary Damages In Recent South Florida Home Hijacking Spectacle

In West Palm Beach, Florida, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports:

  • Find Loki Boy. That's the order from a Palm Beach County judge.

    Bank of America can't be declared the winner in its lawsuit against famed Boca Raton mansion squatter Andre Barbosa until the bank's lawyers first prove he's been served with more court papers, Circuit Judge Jeffrey Gillen has ruled.

    That could be challenging, considering the 23-year-old aspiring rapper and self-proclaimed Norse god of mischief has been elusive in the past and it's not clear where he now calls home.

    Bank of America — which in early February seized the foreclosed $2.5 million waterfront estate at 580 Golden Harbour Drive — sued Barbosa for damages and wanted the courts to "remove any impediment" to selling the property before a planned April 10 closing date.

    But Gillen, in an order signed April 18 and posted Tuesday, denied the bank's motion for a default final judgment against Barbosa. It was unclear if the house sale took place anyway, as a neighbor told the Sun Sentinel the place was sold.
