Ohio Judge Demands More Information in Robo-Signed Foreclosure Cases

One major battleground over how robo-signed documents will be treated is the courtroom of Ohio state court judge Nancy Margaret Russo. She had ordered GMAC to appear before her on Monday to provide her with "proof of integrity of all documents submitted" in a foreclosure case. The proof was needed because GMAC filed the case against James Renfro using documents executed by the infamous robo-signer Jeffrey Stephan. Since the issues weren't resolved on Monday, Russo ordered swift but significant discovery and scheduled a full hearing on February 17, 2011.
