Florida Legislators Pull Funding for Foreclosure Courts

The already clogged foreclosure system in Florida could come to a near standstill this summer after state legislators voted not to extend a special round of funding approved last year to bring in additional case managers and judges to help clear the backlog of foreclosure cases.

After much lobbying from the Office of the State Courts Administrator last year, lawmakers awarded $6 million to the state court system to increase personnel and resources for handling foreclosure actions.

It was a one-time allocation, and that line item didn’t make it into the budget for the new fiscal year, which for the state and the courts begins in July.
