Orlando, FL (AP) - A former secretary at a Florida law firm
under investigation for fabricating foreclosure documents says the
firm's office manager would sign her name to 1,000 files a day and
sometimes would allow paralegals to sign her name for her when she
got tired.
Kelly Scott, a former assistant at the law offices of David
Stern, says in a deposition released Monday that office manager
Cheryl Salmons would sign 500 files in the morning and another 500
files in the afternoon with out reviewing them and with no
witnesses.
Scott says paralegals would then collect the files and swap them
with each other, signing them as witnesses even though they had
already been notarized and executed.
An attorney for Stern's firm didn't immediately return a phone
call.
