OPEN LETTER TO NEW JERSEY STATE SENATORS
REGARDING THE HEARING FOR CHIEF JUSTICE STAURT RABNER

New Jersey State Senate Judiciary Committee

Dear Senator Scutari:
During the tenure of Justice Stuart Rabner as Chief Justice of the New Jersey Supreme Court (NJSC), he has balanced many competing interests and generally performed admirably. One of his innovative projects involves monitoring guardians.
New Jersey Asks for Help to Halt Fraud by Guardians
But in a separate instance it appears that Justice Rabner may have been hoodwinked or even fallen asleep at the switch. That situation involves the resolution to the NJSC's 2010-2013 investigation of fraudulent conduct by predatory lenders and their New Jersey legal representatives.
I addressed three Open Letters to Justice Rabner on that subject. I also contacted the United States Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, et al. Those communications have local and national implications, and are posted on my web site --
The fraudulent foreclosures investigation initiated by Justice Rabner was thorough, but now there is clear evidence that banks and their legal reps are back to business-as-usual. I therefore encourage each New Jersey State Senator to utilize the occasion of Justice's Rabner's reappointment hearing to explore how he plans to address the latest level of unethical and illegal activities. The lenders and their lawyers are so bold that they have developed a "Deep-6" strategy to place properties in suspended animation until it is "convenient" to file suits !!!
Chief Justice Rabner was conspicuous by his absence from the hearing on that ground breaking case for homeowners, and he did not vote in the 5-0 decision. Moreover, there is no notice that I am aware of to explain where he was or why he was not involved on the record. Just wondering.
It is tempting to speculate whether the NJSC might have ruled differently on Guillaume had the
“Wells Fargo Bank Ta-Da FRAUDclosure Manual” been exposed prior to its decision !!!
(See the news links regarding the Wells Fargo Bank Manual that are posted at the close of this letter.)
Governor Chris Christie has chosen to reappoint Chief Justice Rabner. Even so, the New Jersey Senate’s responsibility as a co-equal branch of government is to closely examine all candidates and not just express accolades and compliments. The public is depending on you.
