As you may know, on November 8th, Sunday night into Monday morning, several businesses in CdM were vandalized and burglarized. I am posting photos of the suspects. If you know anything, please contact the police at 949-644-3717.
Here is a photo of the statue of Justice that was stolen
Our new office is three doors toward MacArthur from our old office. We are across PCH from Summerhouse restaurant and across Goldenrod Avenue from Starbucks. Stop by and say "hello."
On June 27, 2013, the Appellate Division of the Superior Court ruled in favor of my clients, the Crouches and reversed the trial court's judgment of unlawful detainer against them. The matter arose from the Federal Protecting Tenant's at Foreclosure Act (PTFA). The client was a tenant who rented a home that a consortium (CIC, or "City Investment Capital") purchased on the courthouse steps at a foreclosure sale. Instead of honoring my clients' lease, as required by law, CIC chose to evict them. Unfortunately for the clients, CIC is rather a pro at filing these types of evictions and winning. Worse, apparently the trial judge did not like the PTFA and granted judgment to evict.
I was brought on as appellate counsel with the Public Law Center. This was a year-long battle that was hard-won. Congratulations to my clients and thanks to the Public Law Center and Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman for all of their help. Click here to see the opinion.
I was out and about again this year giving my "legal help" for 5 ¢, a la Lucy Van Pelt. Like always, it was a great year and such great fun to visit with everyone and to enjoy the festivities of the 34th Annual CdM Christmas Walk.
If you missed me this year, drop by the Melinda Luthin Law office to say "hello" sometime in 2013. And don't forget to stop by the office during next year's Christmas Walk!
