Andrea Gunderson, Broward County, FL circuit judge, has a 6 year long history of ruling against homeowners fighting wrongful foreclosure cases, nearly 100% of the time. In a country full of foreclosure courts that are slowly stamping out homeowner challenges to fraud-based foreclosures, APON strives to take a stand against egregious cases of bias against homeowners by judges that are brought to our attention. According to a report by Floridians for Honest Lending, a non-profit tracking dishonest players in Florida, 217/219 rubber-stamped foreclosure cases in the South Florida circuit this year were decided by Gundersen–which some homeowners describe as part of a “foreclosure mill” (see the video on our homepage). Although many cases have been ruled on against homeowners there, 126 cases were still pending at the time of the report.

After a lengthy investigation and interview with both candidates, the local Sun-Sentinel has endorsed competitor, Alperstein. See their endorsement below:

When Andrea Ruth Gundersen ran for an open circuit judgeship in Broward in 2016, political odds-makers gave her little chance of winning. But the long-time family lawyer with a lengthy history of community involvement defeated both of her rivals.
It’s six years later, and Gundersen, 66, faces criticism of her record from a well-prepared lawyer with an equally impressive record of community work and the poise of someone much older.
The Sun Sentinel recommends that voters choose the 38-year-old challenger, divorce lawyer Lauren Melissa Alperstein of Cooper City.
