North Carolina Lawyer Max Gardner runs boot camp... for bankruptcy lawyers. He is on a crusade to reform the mortgage industry and he has been using the bankruptcy courts to do that. He says judges have often canceled fees because they were not fully disclosed when the mortgage was signed. Ultimately, he says, Congress needs to reform mortgage practices so that all fees are fully disclosed to borrowers.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
