Volusia County Judge Doyle Makes the TV News - The Judge Who Let Emily Go Blind
I have been surprised at the number of people who have been emailing me with concerns over Volusia County Judge John V. Doyle.
WFTV-Florida ran a story yesterday on Judge Doyle and his refusal to allow a father of three to remain in his home under foreclosure despite having worked out a deal with the lender who also did not want the foreclosure to continue.
He was rotated out of family court last year and is now in civil court dealing with foreclosures - his latest gaff is when a father of three was in foreclosure - Mr Gomez took advantage of the Federal Loan Modification Program, worked with his lender and came up with the money - his check was cashed, the lender was happy and did not want the home sold from under the family.
But Judge Doyle said "No!" - denied the motion to set aside the foreclosure proceedings and demonstrated once again how when it comes to the law - state law, federal law, international law - it is trumped in his court by his own dogma.
The story was covered by WFTV in Central Florida and the broadcast is here.
President Obama signed the Federal Loan Modification bill into law to help families avoid losing their homes - Mr Gomez did everything he was supposed to do and this was not supposed to happen but President Obama should be advised that Judge Doyle's view is that in "Volusia County, we are provincials - we don't do the Hague Convention!" - nor the Federal Loan Modification Program, nor pretty much else.
I recall Judge Doyle saying, "At my age all I look forward to is a good night's sleep and a decent bowel movement!"
Clearly, Judge Doyle has not yet had a decent bowel movement and is still full of it.
