Florida Foreclosure Fight Could Be Bellwether

Florida Foreclosure Fight Could Be Bellwether

Michael D. Carlson recently filed a motion in Pinellas Circuit Court seeking to undo a foreclosure judgment against him from 2008, saying he never knew about the legal proceeding until it was over. As part of the motion, the 42-year-old divorced father of three also wants his home in Dunedin back. The problem is, Carlson's lender, Bank of America, sold it more than a year ago to another couple, who thought they had bought the foreclosed property free and clear. Legal experts say that in trying to reverse a foreclosure after the home has been sold to a third party, Carlson's case may be the first of its kind — but it's unlikely to be the last. Whether it's robo-signed documents, falsified affidavits or failure to properly notify defendants, as claimed in the Carlson case, shortcuts by lenders' law firms could prove to be land mines in the legal system. When triggered by homeowners who feel their cases were improperly handled, such issues could raise ownership questions for years to come.

November Fishing Report

Hello Anglers,

I'm not quite sure what to put in this months forecast. October was a hit and miss month and "The Screamin' Sea Weasel" had a few days that not many fish came over her sides. Atleast they were not days that met my standards. I certainly hope that November is a little different. The great thing about fishing this time of the year is the weather is usually nice and comfortable. November is normally a month that I spend a lot of time Snook fishing but not so much this year, I hope to focus more on some of the migrating fish found in the deeper waters around the bay. Trout season is closed until January 1st so I will not be doing a lot of Trout fishing. If Redfish or Flounder are on the agenda I will fish the skinny water but will mostly target Mackerel, Bonita, Kingfish, and Grouper until the water temps push them away. This all of course is subject to the weather. We will start to get a few fronts move in on us and that always shuffles the deck and changes fishing strategies. I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving. Until next time, good luck and be safe on the water.

Remember: don't let your kid be the one that got away, take them fishing.

Take care and tightlines,

Capt. Ric Liles
