Advocates Troubled over Consolidation of Brooklyn Foreclosure Cases

Advocates voiced concerns over the decision to concentrate foreclosure cases with three judges in Brooklyn Supreme Court, instead of spreading them out among 27 judges as has been the practice. With close to 12,000 cases pending, advocates worry that judges will not be able to spend the time needed to properly analyze and adjudicate the cases. Delays harm homeowners, who incur interest and fees when their cases drag on.
