The attorney who issued my mortgage assignment and Lis pendens was suspended from the Florida Bar less than a year after after the motion was entered. No further documents have been filed with the court.
The Lis Pendens is fine, as it was filed prior to disbarment. Your bigger concern, however, is the validity of the Assignment of Mortgage. I would suggest you consult with a foreclosure defense attorney immediately to seek assistance in determining the validity of the Assignment. Also, have the attorney check the docket and verify that nothing has been filed in a year. If this is truly the case, the Case should soon be dismissed for lack of prosecution.
I don't understand your question. A Lis Pendens is nothing more than notice that a lawsuit involving the described property has been filed. An assignment of mortgage purports to convey ownership of a mortgage from an owner to a new owner. You have not described anything that would be actionable in court at all.
However, typically the attorneys who file foreclosures work for larger firms, and come and go. So, if the firm still exists, it may be irrelevant that the individual attorney is suspended.
There is no meaningful way to answer your question, since I don't really understand what is filed or what the legal effect of it is, or what your objective with respect to this property is. You should make arrangements for a direct consultation with a knowledgeable foreclosure litigator, to analyze exactly what is filed and what its effect ism and then to advise what can be done to assist you with accomplishing your objective.

Your question is extremely confusing, and there is no way to answer it without more details. However, an attorney's disbarment usually has no bearing on the validity of documents or the pendency of a lawsuit. The party who hired the attorney could just get another attorney.
I agree that get question doesn't make much sense. I would suggest meeting with a good foreclosure defense attorney and get some help with your foreclosure case.
It is irrelevant. Anything filed before suspension is a good document. A lis pendent is merely notice of. A lawsuit being filed that has to do with real property, nothing more. An assignment of mortgage is valid on its face as log as anyone who has authority of the assigning banks signs off. You need to speak to and hire a foreclosure defenses lawyer instead of self lawyer as it is not helping your case.

The lawsuit will more than likely survive the attorneys disbarment. The best thing to do is check the docket or call the clerk to find out what is going on with the case. By consulting with an attorney to review the docket, they will be able to tell you if the file or lawsuit has been closed by the court for lack of prosecution, that means no activity for more than 10 months. Consult with an attorney as soon as possible
The only thing I will add is that you need to figure out what you wish to do with the property before it's too late. Based on the facts you have given us, the case is at least a year out. I hope you filed something in response to this complaint. If not, you are at risk for losing the property very quickly. Judges are trying to push these cases along as fast as possible (especially if the case is uncontested).
