The fallout begins.

So, the rules committee starts meeting, today, to discuss adjustments to foreclosure rules relating to affidavits. It appears PG County, alone, is reviewing over 14,000 open cases.

The article suggests a rule whereby the filing of a corrective affidavit would trigger a hearing where the offending lawyer would appear in court to testify to the facts and circumstances of the affidavit. Others could examine and cross-examine the lawyer.

Considering 400+ corrective affidavits by two lawyers, that is a lot of "testifying" by two men!
