    FL. Legislator Seeks Records, Answers from Bondi’s Office
    By Toluse Olorunnipa, Miami Herald, August 4, 2011

    After two foreclosure fraud investigators were abruptly dismissed from their posts with the attorney general’s office, and a former deputy attorney general left Tallahassee to join a firm under investigation for foreclosure malpractice, a Hollywood state senator has launched a probe into the state’s top legal office. Florida Sen. Eleanor Sobel (D-Hollywood), sent public records requests to the office of Attorney General Pam Bondi on Thursday, seeking to understand the relationship between the office and Lender Processing Services, a Jacksonville firm under state investigation for shoddy foreclosure practices.

  • Home price index shows 1st annual gain in 3 years

    MIAMI — Home prices rose in February, the first annual increase in more than three years, but fell short of analysts' expectations.

    But results of the Standard & Poor's/Case-Shiller 20-city home price index were mixed, as 11 of the 20 cities showed declines.

    Home prices in February increased 0.6 percent on a non-seasonally adjusted basis, according to the index released Tuesday. The last time prices rose on a year-over-year basis was December 2006.

    Economists polled by Thomson Reuters predicted a 1.2 percent increase.

    The data show that home prices could decline further before experiencing any sustained gains and it's too early to say the housing market is recovering.
