Dismissal of Jax Clerk's case against MERS

Some time ago, the Clerk of the Court in Duval County filed suit against MERS  seeking relief under the provisions of Florida’s Recording Statutes and alleging civil conspiracy, unjust enrichment and fraud.  

Yesterday, Federal Court Judge Schlesinger dismissed the case with prejudice, pointing out that there is no duty to record every assignment of mortgage, even though the recording acts provide important protections against intervening claims.
