NY Trial Judge: Buffalo-Based Foreclosure Mill Law Firm's Actions "A Dereliction Of Professional Responsibility!"

In Suffolk County, New York, State Supreme Court Justice Melvyn Tanenbaum has recently been giving the notorious, Buffalo-based foreclosure mill law Steven J. Baum, P.C. a real hammering.

Over the last month and a half or so, Justice Tanenbaum has denied a request to proceed with foreclosure sales in thirty (30) of Baum's cases. A sample of his 'standard' execoriation of Baum contained in his orders follows:
  • This Court has repeatedly directed plaintiff's counsel to submit proposed orders of reference and judgments of foreclosure in proper form and counsel has continuously failed to do so. The court provided counsel's office directly with copies of orders and judgments which would satisfy the requirements and counsel has responded by submitting correspondence addressed to the Court from non-attorney employees with improper and inadequate submissions. The court deems plaintiff's counsel's actions to be an intentional failure to comply with the directions of the court and a dereliction of professional responsibility.

Go here for the short form copies of each of Justice Tanenbaum's 30 orders excoriating foreclosure mill Steven J. Baum, P.C. (made available online courtesy of StopForeclosureFraud.com).
