What Exactly is Fraud on the Court?

As the Foreclosure Fraud Fight continues to heat up, we should all
step back and talk about the words we’re using to make sure we are
accurately describing the events and situations that we are referring

Yesterday I posted an Order signed by Judge Michael Traynor out of
Jacksonville where he dismissed a case with prejudice filed by a
foreclosure mill because the law firm misled the court about key facts
in the case. In its order, the court questioned the authenticity of the
documents filed in three separate foreclosure cases and noted that the
documents changed three separate times in order to try and fit the facts
as needed by the Plaintiff at each time and that assignements appeared
and vanished as needed. The court did not use the words “fraud on the
court”, but has scheduled an evidentiary hearing to examine how the
facts and documents kept changing…the eyes of the Foreclosure Fraud
Fighting Community will be on that courtroom…there’s even talk of
members of the Foreclosure Fraud Fighting Community appearing in the
courtroom to witness the events.  From where I sit that may be more
interesting than the OJ trial!  Read the Order below and make your own

Next, I encourage everyone to visit the 4ClosureFraud
website for examples of documents that are clearly fraudulent on their
face but have been submitted in courtrooms all across this state. I
think we’re only just touching the tip of the iceberg in terms of the
fraud that is being committed in courtrooms across this country in
foreclosure cases.  Questionable documents and documents executed with
dubious authority may not rise to the level of fraud on the court but
the more clear cut and egregious examples clearly do.  The questions we
need to be asking are:

1) Just how pervasive is the
fraud being perpetrated in courtrooms all across the country?

2) What are the levels and
seriousness of the fraud that is being perpetrated?

3) What are we as a society and
as members of the Bar going to do about fraud?
