>08-03-21 countrywide – judge bohm texas march 6-08 opinion
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS
FEBRUARY 12. 2007 AND MAY 18. 2007
The matter before this Court began with a routine motion to lift stay, but has spiraled into a lengthy ordeal which has cost the parties substantial time, attorneys’ fees, and costs. Over one year ago, on February 6,2007, the Court sought a simple answer to a simple question-why was a motion to lift stay being withdrawn? The movant’s attorney, rather than answer the question truthfully by admitting that the motion was based upon an incorrect payment history, attempted to conceal the truth from the court – that the motion should have never been filed. This rather narrow issue, precipitated an expansive proceeding. During several hearings over the past year, the court received evidence on a wide range of misconduct beyond this initial misrepresentation.
