You heard it hear first folks… from a very reliable source, I have been told that the David J. Stern sent out an email today to ALL employees with a list of employees who were being laid off immediately. Oh, by the way, all employees got the email and were basically told to “look and see if their name was on the list.” Gee Dave, thanks for such a personal touch and showing that you really care!
How nice, what sensitivity from this man… really, if you work for this jerk, why would you expect anything less? But it certainly is a tragedy. Word from my source is that basically everyone at the Law Offices of David J. Stern are already looking for another job elsewhere – and I would too if I were in their shoes. Well, I don’t think I’d ever be in their shoes exactly because this is one animal I’d never work for… you know the saying… it’d be a cold day in hell before… but it appears that Stern has said that business is down a whopping 90% from norms just a few months ago. If that holds true, you can expect to see his employee level go from over 1000 down to maybe 100 and possibly less in short order.
If you have a foreclosure still active where Law Offices of David J. Stern is the Plaintiff’s attorney, rejoice. I’m betting that there will be a good many months delay while his crooked bank/servicer/trustee clients figure out what to do with all the fraud, forgery and misrepresentations made by his firm. Word is that some of his attorneys didn’t even go to hearings today once they got the notice of “you’re not needed here anymore.” Nevermind the ethical duty these attorneys are supposed to have to their client but yes, I know what you’re thinking… what ethics could they possibly have if they worked for Stern? Great question…
Anyway, just thought I’d get this news out there as I know many of my readers will relish in this news. Can’t way to see the ship truly sink. Hopefully that sinking includes jail time for the most deserving of people at his firm. A few names come to mind but I’ll let you read the depositions and come to your own “wish” list.
One last thought… how ironic would it be for some of Stern’s employees to go through foreclosure now that they’re laid off and likely will have a very hard time finding another law firm to hire them? My goodness, wouldn’t that just be heavenly justice being meted out?
You know, I might just start a new category on the blog: Foreclosure Mill Failures – what do you think?
