According to the Chicago Tribune a Cook County Circuit judge has temporarily stopped at least 1,700 foreclosures.

The court said Fisher and Shapiro LLC, one of the top three law firms used by mortgage services, told the court they changed affidavits in the foreclosure cases.

The admission to the court by Fisher and Shapiro involves removing the signature page, altering the affidavit’s content and reattaching the signature page, the court said.
