A Stunningly Bad Court Decision on Affiliated Business Arrangements
by Slade Smith | 2013/12/04
In a stunning decision, the Federal 6th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that under RESPA, sham affiliated business arrangements are legal. Apparently referrers of settlement service business, prohibited by RESPA from receiving kickbacks for referrals, can now cash in on referrals by setting up shell businesses which serve no other purpose than to distribute money for referrals to the referrer, There's no longer any need to make the affiliated business even look like a bona fide business with employees, an office, and work being performed.
Can this decision possibly be correct? I certainly do not think so. I think the court missed something that was right under its nose.

PG&E Faills Record Forensics
by William Pattison | 2013/10/30
Following the San bruno pipeline explosion, the utility was questioned about its record keeping and rightefully so. Under public pr.essure and a .looming threat of regulatory scruitiny, PG&E rented the Cow Palace in Brisbane, a few mi.es away from ground zero. This brief effort is best characteriuzed as a variation if a Soviet=style parade designed to distract from core issues through the use of Barnumesque razzle dazzle. Indeed, a cadre of unqualified commmunity college students were thrown at the papers to guess what value they had. Forensic document analysts, cartographers, historians, librarians, title abstractors and other qualified specialists were not included in the process. The ideal method for reviewing old records would have been to set up an assembly line through which each document would pass through the hands of no less than five experts in various fields. The documents would be tagged and rated by each professional as to their assesssed relatove importance before being digitally scanned for permanent safe keeping. This methodical approach was not used. A quick lesson in :what to look for: substituted for years of professional experience in records and related archival matters. Cheap outlays garner bad results as the poor recordkeeping of past decades proved with the explosion. The choice to do a cursery review of a few records as a show for our public officials. This amateur hour was enough to mollify some outrage and allow them to pass costs forward to the rate payers, rather than force

Fairfield County, Ohio Clerk of Courts
by stephen willard | 2013/08/19
We here in Central Ohio currently have a problem with the Fairfield County Clerk of Courts. It is bad enough that she is under investigation by various government agencies for questionable operating and spending procedures, but know it is just come to light that her office is ignoring court orders. Her office is a busy office, but it is fully staffed which makes it more of a puzzle why her office refuses to comply with court orders to perform her duties after a property has been sold at sheriff sale.
When the common pleas judge signs the confirmation of sale and it is the filed in the clerk of courts office, there is an order in the confirmation directed to the clerk of courts to issue and file releases of various liens that affect the subject real property described in that foreclosure case. Her office has been negligent in doing so for many months now. The reason (company line) that we examiners are being told, and only after many inquires, is that staff member who handles that duty is on maternity leave. If that staff member is not there, that duty is no longer her responsibility. This duty falls back onto the elected official. There have been numerous properties that were sold at sheriff sale, sheriff deeds issue to a proper buyer and now that buyer is trying to sell that property clear of any liens that should have been discharged via the foreclosure sale. Now they cannot. Any attempt to get these court ordered releases filed in the County Recorder's office has been met with great ambivalence.
The bottom line is just because the property was sold at sheriff sale and the sheriff's deed is properly recorded, jus don't assume that all the liens in the foreclosure case have been discharged and released of record, especially in Fairfield County, Ohio.
