Lee County courts still have nearly 16,000 foreclosure cases to get through. A lot of those cases will now be put on hold. That's likely going to create a ripple effect the clerk of courts is worried about.
"What are we trying to accomplish here? Are we trying to kill our economy totally? I mean why don't you just take a knife and just stab us to death," said Charlie Green, Lee County Clerk of Courts. I Would Love To!!!
Green says the court system still receives about 200 foreclosure filings a week. He says if he can't process them, it could take away jobs in his office and prevent what he thought would be a housing rebound.
