In San Diego, California, The San Diego Union Tribune reports:
  • A San Diego man has pleaded guilty to forging the signature of a federal judge and creating a fake order with the hopes of forestalling the foreclosure of his Mission Valley Home. Marc Uribe, 45, entered the plea Wednesday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Cathy Ann Bencivengo.
  • Uribe acknowledged in the plea that he created a falsified court order and forged the signature of a fictional federal judge named Ivan Gonzalez, Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Huie said.
  • Uribe issued the fake order with a civil lawsuit against various lenders. The forged order instructed the lenders that they were temporarily prohibited from foreclosing on his home.
