A former candidate for Miami-Dade public defender is accused of misdealings in a complex foreclosure lawsuit spearheaded by JPMorgan Chase Bank based on more than $10 million in alleged serial mortgage fraud on a single Miami Beach property.

Washington Mutual Bank, which was acquired by JPMorgan last September, alleges Gabriel Martin, whose law license has been suspended since 2006, prepared loan documents as its closing agent but failed to properly carry out his duties.
