but a six-month suspension and a charge of $4,000 in costs doesn't really repay all the tenants that David Endres and his law firm evicted illegally. Endres is notorious, and has been for years. Tenants Together first went after him in 2009, and after a long, hard slog, the State Bar gave him a slap on the wrist. And they didn't get him for illegally evicting tenants but for running an eviction mill, where non-lawyers signed his name to eviction lawsuits. Okayyyy... Hey, that's a lot more important than the rights of tenants, honesty, fair dealing, integrity and the like.
It should be noted that the powers-what-be would have picked up on the robo-signing scandal a lot sooner if they had paid attention to what was happening to tenants in foreclosed properties. Robo-signing was the norm, not the exception.
Channel 10 (in Sacramento) also reported the story.
