In the last couple of weeks news broke that a South Florida attorney, Jose Manuel Camacho, a graduate of the University of Miami Law School, allegedly forged signatures of seven Broward County Judges on over 100 documents.
The act was discovered by two of the seven Judges diligent enough to check, Marina Garcia-Wood and Carlos Rodriguez. Obviously serious oversight was lacking in the way Broward County Courts process court filings.
Ironically, connect the dots and Judge Carlos Rodriguez signature happened to appear on a very favorable settlement for Eric Noveshen and his mother Cheryl Wilson. Or is it his signature?
The mother-son team Wilson-Noveshen have perfected the art of abusing the Broward Courts to get out of paying their debts, a fact supported by many documents. In this particular case, American Express v. Cheryl Wilson and Eric Noveshen the pair got an $80,000 judgement knocked down to $30,000! Bonus they didn’t have to pay a dollar of the thousands in legal fees they cost American Express in their dirty game.
We’re not saying it’s not Judge Rodriguez signature, but if one lawyer can get away with forging 100 documents what else needs to be reexamined in the Broward Courts?
It is known that the ridiculously low settlement amount may have had something to do with Noveshen’s friendship with the mediator Fred Berman, now Judge Berman. Noveshen is friends with many of his kin, Scott Berman, Lori Berman…Attorneys for American Express might have done better for their client had they checked this out beforehand. Not that Berman did anything wrong either, but Noveshen-Wilson are known to take advantage of ANY common denominator to play the system. Noveshen is skilled at the pity, poor me, I enjoyed charging things but can’t pay the bill game. His mother is even better, nothing more potent than an lying senior citizen.
Is this Judge Carlos Rodriguez real signature? Maybe? Maybe Not?
Compare the judgement below, $80,963.01 mediated down to $30,600. They charged $50,000 for free!
Thank your lucky stars Broward that Judge Weinstein is taking action, he said, “Lawyers are no longer trusted as officers of the court to deliver signed orders to the clerk’s office, Weinstein said. “A deputy of the clerk now has to go to the judges’ offices to pick up the orders.” Let’s hope the rule applies to Eric Noveshen too.
