Foreclosure Judge Doesn't Read Mortgage Cases -- or, He Says, Rolling Stone

So I'm starting to get a lot of mail on the foreclosure story, and over the course of the next week I'll be doing some more appearances on the subject. One of those is a radio station in Jacksonville, where I'll be on First Coast Connect with Melissa Ross, the local NPR affiliate, at 9 a.m. next Thursday. I'll be on with Chip Parker, a foreclosure lawyer who was one of my main sources and who also, I should point out, coined the phrase "Too Big For Fraud."

Tonight I'm going to be doing a joint event with author and friend Nomi Prins at the Coronet Theater in Los Angeles. It's at 8:00 p.m. At 366 N. La Cienega, and should be a fun time. Nomi taught me a lot of what I know about finance and particularly the bailouts and she's always fascinating to listen to.

One other funny note: local reporters in Jacksonville went around and interviewed some of the principals in "Invasion of the Home Snatchers," including among others Judge A.C. Soud, the justice who presided over the "rocket docket" and threatened local attorney April Charney with contempt for bringing me into court. Soud told Jacksonville.com that "he'd never read [Rolling Stone] and doesn't intend to." Considering that what I mostly criticize Soud for in my article is not reading things -- in particular, seemingly not reading through whole mortgage cases before ruling on them -- I thought this was an interesting response and worth noting.
