Jeff Barnes, Esq. has been approached by several homeowners who were the victims of fraudulent foreclosure actions filed by the Law Offices of David J. Stern to institute litigation to vacate the foreclosures based on evidence from numerous sources including official investigations against the Stern law Firm. Mr. Barnes has been presented with depositions and other documentary evidence demonstrating the massive pattern of corporate fraud engaged in by the Stern law Firm acting as agent for numerous “banks” and servicers, who knew or should have known of the fraud but did nothing about it other than to cause it to continue.
Mr. Barnes has been requested to file an action naming the Stern law Firm, its employees who manufactured the fraudulent documents and foreclosure foreclosure papers, and the banks and servicers who used the Stern law Firm to perpetrate the fraudulent foreclosures which numbered in the tens of thousands.
Florida law provides that a judgment can be opened or vacated if it was obtained by fraud, or if it is void, and also has a “crime/fraud” exception to the attorney/client privilege which does not protect communications between a party and its attorney if those communications were made in furtherance of the perpetration of or for the purpose of committing a crime or fraud even if the crime or fraud is not consummated. Fla.Stat. sec. 90.502 as explained in First Union National Bank v. Turney, 824 So.2d 172 (Fla. 1st DCA 2001). Obviously the fraudulent Stern foreclosures were “completed”.
