As I understand, justice in america is a commodity like any other. so the more money you got, the more the legal system will serve you and foreclosed people, almost by definition, don't have much money so the legal system is deaf to their entreaties.

Even if 99% of the justice was for sale, which I at my most cynical would call a gross exaggeration, that would leave a lot of justice not for sale.

It is slow sometimes. In this case, slow might be good. For example, it is a rare rare case that gets heard by the Supremes without working its way up through other courts.

At this point, I would think that the worst problem is the amount of stupid going around, listening to the fools who want to allow the foreclosure bubble to expand until only the bones of their children are left for the last greedy bankers to leach one last time.

Never underestimate their intelligence, always underestimate their knowledge.
