The Supreme Court of Ohio has officially approved FDN’s Foreclosure Defense Seminar for CLE credits under Rule X of the Supreme Court Rules for the Government of the Bar of Ohio. The approval was issued by letter dated January 20, 2012 which we received today.
We are planning the next seminar to take place some time in March, 2012 in New Jersey, and a second seminar to be scheduled in the Los Angeles, California area in April, 2012.
Separately, Mr. Barnes has caused the third denial of a Plaintiff’s Motion for Summary Judgment in a case pending in Orlando, Florida. At the first hearing on the same motion, the Court told the Plaintiff’s counsel on the record that the Plaintiff did not own the note, and thus the case was going to trial. Mr. Barnes was thereafter retained, and Plaintiff moved for summary judgment again after objecting to and not producing discovery. The Court, on the record, said that “discovery is incomplete, so you win on that issue.” Although Mr. Barnes made numerous attempts to coordinate a hearing on the Plaintiff’s discovery objections with counsel for Plaintiff (which counsel is from Florida Default Law Group in Tampa), no cooperation was ever received.
Undaunted, Plaintiff moved for summary judgment a third time. Mr. Barnes filed an opposition setting forth the two prior denials and reasons therefor. The Court denied the Motion for a third time.
