In J.A. v. K.M, Bernhard Law Firm filed an action for fraud, tortious interference with advantageous business relationship and defamation, violation of the Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act and the Florida Consumer Collections Practices Act, and negligent misrepresentation. As garnered from the lawsuit’s pleadings:
“[Bernhard Law Firm is] requesting a judgment against [an auto dealership] for its fabrication of employment and financial documents in [two consumers’] names to fraudulently enroll [these consumers] in automobile financing agreements that paid for car sale commissions to [the auto dealership]. [Bernhard Law Firm further seeks a judgment for the auto dealership’s] publication of the fraudulent documents to numerous financing companies, credit bureaus, and [the consumers’] primary business client, [a prominent sports team], defaming the [consumers’] reputation and credit as honest and hardworking people, and irrevocably damaging their vital business relationship with [the prominent sports team].”
The Second Lawsuit: Bank Fraud, Forged Assignments, and Abuse of Process
In O.B. v. D.F., Bernhard Law Firm filed an action for fraud, violation of the Florida Consumer Collections Practices Act (“FCCPA”), abuse of process, and injunction and cancellation of fraudulent documents against current financial institution O.B. As stated in the lawsuit’s pleadings:
“The facts underlying [the consumers’] claims are straightforward: O.B. has repeatedly attempted to collect on a mortgage loan debt issued to the [consumers] by [a different loan originator] without ever producing the note as properly negotiated and endorsed from [the originator] to O.B. Instead, O.B. has claimed that the note has disappeared, while repeatedly falsifying note transfer documents and feigning searches for the note.”
In the pleadings, Bernhard Law Firm notes:
“[T]here is a difference between a lost note and a note in somebody else’s possession. There is a difference between the valid negotiation and assignment of a note and the forgery of assignment documents. There is a difference between not knowing of parties interested in the note and simply not contacting known interested parties. O.B. has intentionally ignored these differences, and opted to move forward with the collection of a note it does not have, at significant cost and damage to the [consumers]. Accordingly, the [consumers] seek damages for their losses, an order enjoining O.B. from continuing its fraudulent acts and requiring it to record a cancellation of its fraudulent assignment documents.”
The Third Lawsuit: ADA Compliance Defense
In D.L. v. R.S., a Miami commercial property owner has engaged Bernhard Law Firm to defend an action for relief under the American Disabilities Act, Title III, and the ADA’s Accessibility Guidelines, requesting removal of alleged physical barriers in the property. Bernhard Law Firm is coordinating the ADA compliance property survey and rebuttal report, cure of readily achievable barrier removal, and procedural defense of the federal lawsuit.
