The Third District Court of Appeal’s one-liners aren’t sitting well with some foreclosure defense attorneys who say it abuses per curiam affirmances, or PCAs, to avoid justifying rulings on lender standing.

The appellate court, which hears appeals from Miami-Dade and Monroe counties, issued PCAs in about 81 percent of the foreclosure cases heard in 2015.

The “Third DCA has never issued a written decision reversing a final judgment of foreclosure because the foreclosing lender failed to prove standing at the inception of the case. Not once,” Tampa foreclosure defense attorney Mark Stopa wrote in a footnote in a motion for rehearing in the case of clients Thomas and Deborah Corrigan. “That bears a moment of reflection.”
