Late this afternoon, I notified Governor Scott that I would be resigning as a Circuit Judge effective June 30, 2011. Effective July 1, 2011, I will return to private practice with the Law Offices of Marshall C. Watson. I wish to express my sincere thanks to each judge for permitting me the honor of being your Chief Judge during the last four years. I appreciate the confidence you placed in me.

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi Settles Investigation Against One of Florida’s Largest Foreclosure Firms
TALLAHASSEE, FL – Today Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi announced a first-of-its-kind settlement against attorney Marshall C. Watson and his law firm, one of the largest foreclosure firms in Florida, for alleged improprieties in the prosecution of foreclosure cases throughout Florida.

“It’s like talking to a brick wall. . . . The banks themselves have slowed down, but not the judges. . . . They are robo-signers.” ~ By Brady Dennis Washington Post Staff Writer Friday, October 15, 2010; 12:11 AM FORT LAUDERDALE – In a cramped, makeshift courtroom, Broward County Judge Victor Tobin was signing off on uncontested foreclosure cases as fast as a clerk could keep them coming, only a few seconds per file.
“Batter up,” he said as he finished one stack and eyed the next. With scores of cases remaining on the day’s “rocket docket” earlier this week and tens of thousands more awaiting judgment in this courthouse, there was little time to pause.
We called and confirmed the "promotion" and I must say, we were speechless.
If this does not go to show how rigged the foreclosure game is, I do not know what will.
I don't know what to believe anymore...
I knew it was bad, but this is even beyond me...
