Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth ….and you know the rest (Part 3)


 

Civil cases do not require evidence to be handed over to either party prior to the trial. The judge made note to the jury that these types of lawsuits are not under the scrutiny of more serious cases. The atmosphere was much more relaxed than even I expected.

As I was called to the witness stand, our attorney began to question me about my years of Property Management experience and then into the timeline of the case in question.

He then came forth with the 83 pages of emails which caused the defendant’s attorney to stop everything demanding he and his client have the opportunity read over them before the case went forward.inboxfull

The entire court room was at a quiet standstill for the next 15-20 minutes waiting on them to finish. It was apparent the jury was getting fidgety.  The juror at the end closest to me looked over at me as if to say, “I can’t believe they are making us wait like this.” One juror who looked to be barely 18, was obviously not interested in being there much less what was going on with the case. I had a clear view of the judge. She sat there working, writing, looking at her computer, drinking water and at times texting on her phone.

My own opinion at this point was the jury wasn’t happy and without any further testimony would have voted against the defendant anyway due to their inconsideration of everyone else.

Finally we proceeded.

Our attorney had me turn to certain pages of the emails and read aloud to the court what the defendant had written. As he questioned me the timeline of events was his purpose. The reason being was the lease was signed on Sept. 15, 2011 but she was expected to pay rent as of October 1, 2011 whether she had moved in or not. My reasoning for this was at that point she had tied up this property since August not wanting me to rent it to anyone else. If I did receive a qualified tenant she wanted me to call her first so she would have the opportunity to rent it first. She couldn’t make up her mind what to do so I had to give her an ultimatum which I did.

The kicker to signing the lease was a list of repairs/requests she demanded be done to rent the house. Needed repairs are one thing but to demand the owner buy a new refrigerator and have the house cleaned again was another. He agreed out of the kindness of his heart and she signed.

Taking this into account, only 2 weeks before October 1st wasn’t enough time to get all she wanted done which was fine with her since her furniture wouldn’t arrive until the middle of October. I made arrangements in order for the repairs, the refrigerator to be delivered and installed and the cleaning after that. The house was professionally cleaned on October 7, and the carpets shampooed October 10th.  

These dates were the core of the case. Why?

Her attorney would use them against us. His argument over and over was

“The lease was signed on Sept. 15 and she paid rent October 1st but the house was filthy so she couldn’t move in.” Duh………

To be continued…..

Be still before the Lord
and wait patiently for him;
do not fret when people succeed in their ways,
when they carry out their wicked schemes.

Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth ….and you know the rest (Part 2)


 

In a world of disillusioned, misguided and unhappy people it is not a far-fetched idea to have one go to the lengths of a court case to prove their innocence when it is clear they aren’t. How dare anyone believe an officer of the military would totally ignore the law?

I am not being judgmental. This is however representative of the mindset plaguing our nation. Evil becomes good and good becomes evil. Tell a lie so much that the liar begins to truly believe it themselves.

Since the onset of this case God gave me a verse, Luke 21:15 which says,

  “For I will give you [skillful] words and wisdom which none of your opponents will be able to resist or refute.”

I clung to this verse until the day of the trial. Over 4 years.

From the beginning the lawyer for the plaintiff requested any information I had concerning the case including, receipts, contracts, and emails.

About 2 weeks prior to March 3, the court date I receive a phone call from a man who slowly asked if I was in deed who I am, and owner of Guardian Property Management LLC. The defendant’s lawyer proceeded to ask me questions about the case of which I quickly replied,
“Nope. Not giving you any information without my lawyer.”

His quick retort was, “Fine! I’ll subpoena you then!” His threat was stopped when

I responded, “You don’t have to. I will be there in support of our friend and my client.”

Calling my lawyer he reported the defendant’s lawyer had just called him. My lawyer told me I didn’t have to speak to him so I didn’t. I am convinced his call was to try to coerce me to get the plaintiff to change his mind and drop the case. He found out that wasn’t an option. 

2 days before the trial 2 young girls ring our doorbell and ask me if I was Cathy Neil. Handing me a subpoena they left. It’s a good thing I didn’t have plans but as I found out later the servers never signed or dated the subpoena making it invalid.

Meeting with the lawyer, we discussed what he would ask and what we were to respond with. After 4 years I was concerned about what I wouldn’t remember. But God…..

The lawyer expressed to us that he and her lawyer met with the judge on Monday, Feb. 29 to pick jurors.  He discovered the defendant’s attorney was basing their case on certain dates of cleaning the house opposed to the date of signing the lease.jury

As it was, 6 jurors were chosen and 5 out of the 6 were women. The choice being made by the opposing lawyer hoping to sway the women jurors to support the defendant.  In other words, he played the “gender card.”

 

So much time had passed since this began we didn’t know what they had as far as evidence, but then they didn’t know what we had either.

While speaking to his lawyer, he came up with the emails made between me and the defendant from the end of August until October 18, 2011 when she declared herself free of the lease completely. Altogether it was 83 pages; mostly emails from her to me.

I had no idea that those emails would be the words and wisdom of Luke 21: 15 that God would display for everyone in that courtroom to hear.

To be continued……

My Response to the “Red Herring” Constitutional Lawyer code named dougindeap….


The following is a response after receiving a comment about my posts concerning  the Separation of Church and State. This person only left an email address. He goes by the name of dougindeap of which I googled finding him to be an atheist lawyer. If I am incorrect about this, I am sure he will let me know.

I should be so honored that he would strive to search out bloggers like myself, whom he has never commented before on any other posts of mine. But of course, he would choose to argue his points that what I have written is a “red herring.” He replies in his “legal jargon” that supposedly makes him sound smart or “Constitutionally Unchallenged.”

For whatever its worth, at least he writes in a civil yet statistical tone. However, the following has been my feeling regarding the overall purpose of atheists. 

First of all there is nowhere that I have read in the constitution the separation of church and state is a bedrock of anything. In its makeup is the point being stated the GOVERNMENT HAS NO RIGHT TO INFERFERE WITH THE CHURCH, HOW IT IS RUN, WHAT IT DOES, WHERE IT WANTS TO PLACE NATIVITY SCENES OR THE CROSS OF CHRIST. Never mind the Founding Fathers had church services in the US Capitol until after the Civil War. Never mind there were over 1400 written, signed proclamations of prayer and fasting by these leaders. Never mind…..constitution for a moral people only

Wait a minute….

Why is it atheist/agnostics/unbelievers spend all of their time fighting, suing, arguing against something they believe doesn’t exist?

Since you don’t believe in God the Creator of the Universe or his Son Jesus, the Savior of the world, then you really have nothing to say, write or sue. How can you write or sue something that simply isn’t anywhere?

If you believe God never existed, then you have no right to be upset, call others out or sue to remove a cross on a public hill because to you that cross isn’t there. How could it be?

If you truly stand by your atheist conviction, then you really should keep quiet, stay out of places where God is represented and……stop your efforts to pursue the “nothing” you continue to fight against. What is that like?

Why would you want to be caught up in any action or words where you mention the name “God?” How can you possibly stand by lawsuit after lawsuit against “a nonentity?” Since God isn’t anywhere, or he is nowhere then why do you seek out others who do believe?

If there is nothing there, it is empty space, zilch, zero, air.

If God isn’t there, anywhere or even worshipped by those who do believe in Him, why do you care?

For that matter we who do claim to follow Jesus, have the same authority as you do to believe in Him and regard His presence anywhere we choose without being concerned about those like yourself who don’t believe in him.

After all the Constitution gives us that right. You know that “separation of church and state” protects us; not unbelievers.

I didn’t hunt you down. I wasn’t “trolling” to find unbelievers but then how could I? If you don’t believe then you have nothing to say…..which means you shouldn’t be replying to anyone about what you know isn’t there. How do you choose words about nothing?

Your actions to continually “troll” bloggers such as myself to argue what you deem as “nothing” is laughable. Or maybe another “red herring.”

Therefore Mr. Dougindeap, all comments from your perspective don’t exist.
