ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — The body that regulates Florida attorneys has forwarded a complaint to the state Supreme Court against a South Florida lawyer whose firm handled tens of thousands of foreclosure cases.
The Florida Bar on Wednesday filed the complaint against David Stern, whose firm operated out of Broward County.
The complaint says Stern failed to properly supervise his staff and that led to allegations of misconduct.
According to the complaint, the misconduct included missed hearings, improperly filed court documents and hundreds of attorneys handling thousands of foreclosure cases.
The complaint says documents submitted in court by his firm often were incomplete, contained inaccuracies and were improperly notarized.
Stern's attorney, Jeffrey Tew, says his client did nothing wrong and that the Bar will be unable to prove the allegations.
