For the past 18 months, I have blogged about Lynne Lucas, my client in Northern Michigan who was fighting an illegal foreclosure that contained fraudulent assignments, robo-signing, unrecorded mortgage assignments, fraudulent notary signatures and a myriad of other illegal activity committed by the staff of Orlans Associates.  She also had to deal with the second most incompetent judge in the state of Michigan, Oakland County Circuit Court Judge Martha Anderson.   She did this all while battling terminal cancer.


The investigation MFI-Miami did on her file has led to criminal investigations into robo-signing by employees of Orlans Associates by both the Michigan and Massachusetts Attorney Generals, propelled Marshall Isaacs to robo-signing super stardom and was the genesis of two class action lawsuits filed by Ingham and Branch Counties against the banks, mortgage servicers, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Orlans Associates and Trott & Trott for failing to pay the Michigan Real Estate Transfer Tax on properties in foreclosure. The follow up investigation done by MFI-Miami indicated these entities defrauded nearly $1.2 billion from Michigan counties and the Michigan School Aid fund since 1998. Her foreclosure has also helped an investigation MFI-Miami will release in the next few weeks showing how Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac foreclosures are illegal in 5 states hardest hit by the financial crisis and how FHFA and the U.S. Treasury have some serious explaining to do to the American people.
