ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A former secretary at a Florida law firm under investigation for fabricating foreclosure documents says the firm's office manager would sign her name to 1,000 files a day and sometimes would allow paralegals to sign her name for her when she got tired.
Kelly Scott, a former assistant at the law offices of David Stern, says in a deposition released Monday that office manager Cheryl Salmons would sign 500 files in the morning and another 500 files in the afternoon with out reviewing them and with no witnesses.
Scott says paralegals would then collect the files and swap them with each other, signing them as witnesses even though they had already been notarized and executed.
An attorney for Stern's firm didn't immediately return a phone call.
