100 Posts and Counting

Posted September 8th, 2007 by Joe Kaiser

Instead, I'll move forward, not by way of my preferred route, but forward just the same.

Dear Rob,

With today’s post, we’ve reached 100.

Can you believe it?

And silly me, I had a post all ready to go, describing my victory in Kitsap County Superior Court yesterday from an earlier overage claim case.

Only one small problem with that plan, though, gulp . . . I lost.


Judge Theodore Spearman agreed with Cheryl Kringle’s interpretation of RCW 84.64.080, and with the former owner’s attorney shamelessly playing the “unsophisticated seller” card to the hilt, there was little to argue.

And that’s okay. For the moment, at least, I can live with it (it’s not like I have any other choice).

What Next?

The post about my win won’t be showing up any time soon, nor will the post about you and me settling this case. Rest assured, I have no intention of even discussing a settlement.

Instead, I’ll move forward, not by way of my preferred route, but forward just the same.

It wasn’t my day in Kitsap County, and that, too, is okay. All it did was make me more determined than ever to fight back even harder.

Stick around, Rob, there are another 100 posts coming your way.

    Joe; Was there a “Finding of Fact” and/or a “Ruling ( of Memorandum ) of Law” produced in support of this decision.
    If “yes”, will you link to them ?
    If “no, did you request them ?
    If those were not requested, will you explain why they were not ?

    Thank You.

    There will be much more resulting from yesterday’s ruling. I’ll keep you posted and upload as soon as available.

    “He was the Chair of the Washington State Bar Association’s Civil Rights Committee and served on the Washington State Bar Association Disciplinary Board for three years by Supreme Court appointment. In 1998, he was a finalist for appointment to the United States District Court, Western Division.”

    Looks like one of Bill’s boys. Being a capitalist…you never had a chance.

    It’s only a battle, not the war.

    I’m sure he’s an excellent judge and based on what he knows made what he believes to be a fair ruling. I have no problem with it in that light.

    More to come.

    So, somehow they/he are conveniently ignoring the rights of ownership…. miraculously…. if a person signs over a deed…. they somehow didn’t sign away… everything that goes with it… good or bad…

    Guess, if that’s the case… all those fines that were ordered by you to be paid for that one propertys…. are the previous home owners problem and not yours…

    They can’t have it both ways…

    The moment a deed is signed… is the moment things are conveyed….

    Guess… to the supreme court you should be on your way….

    Lawsuits should be stacking up in your favor…. for “BIG” money…

    Are they doing the same thing to others…

    What about say a second lien holder who gets a deed in leui of foreclosure…. and and then let’s the proeprty go to sell….

    Are they somehow going to give the previous homeowner any access monies that would have gone to the lienholders

    How many homeowners have they screwed over waiting for these monies to escheat back to the counties… while they quietly sit on the sidelines and allow the time clock to tick so they can collect….

    Joe; how are you “sure” he is an “excellent judge” ?

    And; You said “based on what he knows, he made a fair decision”. Not to state the obvious, but since many do not understand the mechanics and intricacies of litigation, I will state clearly; It is ( was ) up to you to make him aware of “what he knows”, at least as it pertains to the facts of this case, and the law as it applies to those facts. Then, its up to him to determine if you or your opponent is correct, as a matter of law.

    Maybe he is an excellent judge, maybe not. Maybe he made a “fair” decision in this matter, maybe not, although “fair” is completely subjective. The question I am interested in having answered is, in order to make my own determination, is; Was he “right” ( “right” may be subjective also ! )

    Thank You.

    Well said Spyboy.

    Joe, I look forward to reading some “uploads” from this case. Looks to me like this opinion will be contrary to the conclusions of law drawn by the judge in your Pierce County case. http://pushedtoshove.com/2007/08/that-silly-constitution-thing/

    It is encouraging to hear you redouble your resolve to see the legal arguments through. It would please me to help. Let me know what you need. 360 402 0926.
