60 Minutes Homeonwer Lynn Szymoniak Wins Dismissal of Foreclosure

by Mike on April 6, 2011

Remember the 60 Minutes episode Sunday night about the wholesale falsification of evidence in foreclosure cases? As for the homeowner featured in that story, the Palm Beach Post reports that Lynn Szymoniak’s foreclosure case was dismissed Tuesday.

The victory isn’t a permanent one—the plaintiff has 30 days to file a corrected complaint—but in my own experience, plaintiffs have been completely unable to meet these deadlines.

Coincidental timing

I don’t think the timing is completely coincidental—I’m sure the show’s producers knew about the upcoming hearing when they picked an air date—but I doubt the airing of the show affected the result… much.

The object lesson here is not that media attention will win your case for you. Most often, it won’t. But what Lynn did right here is that, even though she herself is a lawyer and seasoned fraud investigator, she retained a good, solid lawyer to present her case for her. And that’s probably 80% of why she won Tuesday’s hearing. If you’re facing foreclosure, and want to save your home, then you too should talk to a lawyer who knows how to fight foreclosure.
