Foreclosure Firm that Mocked the Homeless Closes
You probably saw the news report a month ago about the Baum law firm. Baum was New York's largest "foreclosure mill". Baum was known for its raucous Halloween office parties. Pictures were leaked to the web of Baum employees dressed up as homeless people -- the products of their (allegedly robo-signer-aided) foreclosures. After the Baum firm was fined $3 million -- oh, yes, and the whole "homeless thing, clients left the firm in droves. Now the firm has announced that it is going to close. This news warrants a "Full Nelson"
