Tomorrow, 1/24/14…the Daily Business Review will be holding a “View from the Bench” in Palm Beach County. It will be the first one that they are holding in Palm Beach. Originally, I was invited to be the moderator of one of the panels. Tom Ice, another foreclosure defense attorney, was the sponsor of that event.
As reported by the Palm Beach Post, I will not be the moderator and the Ice Firm has for good reason withdrawn its sponsorship.
What happened is an unfortunate footnote to the nature of foreclosure jurisprudence in the State of Florida and probably the nation. As a backdrop, last fall, our firm was the exclusive sponsor of a Daily Business Review sold-out event at the Performing Arts Center in Broward County addressing foreclosures. I gave the keynote address and also served as one of the panelists. Amanda Lundergan was the moderator. After the conclusion of the event, the Review representatives told me that the event was one of their best events and in fact they wanted to put another one on for the end of the year.
