Paatalo: If you don’t think judges will listen, think again

Skeptics often confront me to say that judges refuse to listen to their arguments.

My response is always the same.

But nobody likes the answer.

Judges will listen if you have something relevant to say, and you are saying it in proper form and in a timely manner. Both homeowners and lawyers fail to present appropriate arguments because they insist on admitting to the existence of a nonexistent debt. The rest is a “yes, but” defense that rarely produces anything other than frustration.

Bill Paatalo, a licensed private investigator and a long-time (14 years) contributor to foreclosure defense and forensic analysis has once again presented yet another example of what happens when a homeowner is willing to assume nothing and presents the argument.

Here is his blog article:

If You Don’t Think Judges Will Listen, Think Again

  1. What would a judge listen to when the homeowner’s Defense attorney removed the evidence? Remember it’s the Defense attorney who’s making the decisions with the filing of Motions and submitting evidential documentation.
    The overall instructions given to the Defense attorneys are not to take the foreclosure cases to trial but to force the homeowners into signing a loan modification that favors the Plaintiffs/banks who later reject it within approximately three months. This tactic allows the Plaintiffs/banks to get rid of the evidential alleged loan in the foreclosure case and later still take the property.
    When the homeowner insists on taking the case to trial the Defense attorney then removes crucial evidence to the homeowner’s defense while offering no objections to Plaintiff presenting fabricated evidence. That’s the reality of what’s taking place within the court system to the Judge’s knowledge.
    They called mediation, I was ambushed and threatened by the Mediator, Defense, and Plaintiff’s Attorney for not agreeing to a loan modification. The bank previously threatened me for refusing to sign offers of a loan modification during the last three years of a ten-year foreclosure process and when I refused and insisted on going to trial, my Defense attorney removed my crucial defense evidence with the excuse that it did not belong in this foreclosure trial but will be used at the appeals level. He had no intention of doing so it was just an excuse to remove the pertinent documentation and allow the bank to win the case.
    Once the foreclosure cases hit the courts it’s not about going after the truth, it’s game time.
