    Forensic Examination Documents Made Publicly Available

    The forensic examination of the real property records of Osceola County, Florida was commissioned by Armando Ramirez, a duly elected public official with the title of Clerk of the Circuit Court of Osceola County, Florida.

    In Florida, the Clerks of the Court have a dual role as both a clerk of the official records (which contain vital statistics as well as real property records, the focus of this examination) and as clerks of the circuit courts in the counties which they serve. It is this Clerk’s opinion, being autonomous from legislative and judicial influence, that it is his moral duty to the property owners of Osceola County to conduct a comprehensive forensic examination of not only his Court Records but also of his Official Property Records in light of the ongoing foreclosure crisis.
