Miami-Dade to close dedicated foreclosure courts

Miami-Dade Circuit Court will stop dedicating three courtrooms to foreclosure cases as their backlog winds down. Circuit Judge Jennifer Bailey, head of civil courts, ordered that trials and summary judgments involving foreclosures will be assigned to circuit judges rather than senior judges in the foreclosure-dedicated courtrooms. The foreclosure courts in Miami-Dade will formally shut down on Tuesday, June 30, the last day of the state’s fiscal year. In 2013, the state government provided its court system with extra funding, temporary staff and other resources to clear a mounting number of foreclosure cases. The state hasn’t renewed the extra funding. – See more at: http://therealdeal.com/miami/blog/2015/06/27/miami-dade-to-close-dedicated-foreclosure-courts/#sthash.ClRYC5fw.upOSOBga.dpuf
