Tough Foreclosure Court: Attorney Handcuffed, Jailed

No comment...

from the DBR:

Boca Raton lawyer was charged with battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest with violence. The state attorney's office dropped the charges Jan. 7, noting the sentence imposed by Harrison.
A transcript from the hearing shows tense exchanges between the Golants and Harrison, with the lawyers accusing the judge of denying a motion "as a sanction" against the firm in GMAC Mortgage v. Philip Joseph Maszak et al.

The lawyers claim the judge violated state law by pushing ahead on a rocket docket even though pleadings were still outstanding. Harrison dismissed their protests as "appellate law" and asked to "clear the front of the courtroom."
