I was Evicted for Exercising My Constitutional Right to File a Lawsuit
(Please check out my other blog, Crazy Homeless Catholic Grandma.)
The Trial Court and the Court of Appeals both Agree that "No Retaliation Was Involved."
It was just an eerie coincidence that Fiduciary Real Estate Development (FRED) evicted my son, me, and our two old kitties sixty - four (64) days after I filed a small claims lawsuit against FRED. We had all lived at Valley View Apartments for nine years --- which was almost half of my son's life at the time. He turned nineteen in May of 2010.
We had moved into Valley View in October of 2001. We never paid the rent late, not once, in nine years, and there was never a legitimate 5-day notice against us. Our kitties moved in with us in 2001. They were on a separate pet lease addendum and we were in full compliance. They never left the apartment. Several years after we moved in, a very nasty manager took over.
I filed a lawsuit against Fiduciary Real Estate Development (FRED) in August of 2010. They filed an eviction action against me in November of 2010. Yet, the Dane County Circuit Court, and the Court of Appeals both claim there was no retaliation involved.
FRED has hired two attorneys --- one at the trial level, and another at the appellate level, for these two cases. It has all been about legal trickery and treachery.
It's certainly not about saving money, is it?
That's what most businesses try to do when there is a legitimate business motivation involved. They try to cut their losses, to save money for the company.
That was part of the plan -- legal trickery and treachery. I think the judges are even a little confused, but they'd rather not admit it openly. It's really all about diversion and misdirection. FRED's trial counsel is quite the carnival huckster!
But, the court is supposed to decide based on the law and the facts --- not whose personality is more domineering.
It is always nice when your landlord lets you in on a little secret, like --- you don't live there anymore.
Or, some of those other little secrets, like: They're planning to go to court and tell the judge you're holding over without a lease . . .
Four months after they offered you a bribe for signing the lease early!!
---- So, you did sign the lease early, not because you wanted to live there, but because you needed the bribe to help pay for an enzymatic substance to resolve an issue for the HUD inspector. (The issue had to do with the olfactory senses, and Becky and Jason. You can guess the rest, I'm sure.)
But, the landlord said you would not get the bribe until after you passed the HUD inspection, so you had to go borrow and beg the money for the enzymes anyway. ~~~ So, you signed that renewal for no reason at all.
Confusing, isn't it?
We did receive a 5-day notice once in 2008, though, but it was the same day I called the cops on the apartment manager, so I don't think it really counts. It was in retaliation for my call to the police.
Our other beautiful, beloved kitty dontracted cancer. We had to put her down.
On the other hand, it's my responsibility. I cannot blame anyone ---except the lying, thieving, corrupt, incompetent,vengeful company whose attorney and employees lied to the courts and to the federal government.
But, that won't bring my beautiful kitty girl back.
