This story just keeps getting better and better-- I think you'll be in the running for Thread-of-the-Year in 2010, too, Speedracer!

I would have to agree on that.

As much as I'd like to believe some people aren't this dumb, this landlord keeps proving me wrong, time and time again.

speedracer, nice bit of info that the court would take good faith attempts to try and serve the summons as proof that you tried to service it and he's ducking the attempts. I'll have to remember that for the future, if I'm ever in a similar position.

One minor suggestion. Could you possibly date the updates? Very interesting read, but if I hadn't seen this get bumped so much, I would have never had known this got an update. And even then, took me a minute to remember where I stopped reading last =P

And good luck with it all; will definitely keep up with this.

No comprende?

It would be "No comprendo."

Every time I update, I hope the next one will be the last. I'll start throwing dates on em. Good idea.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry at the thought of it. Two damn months before we even get back into the ring with this guy. If he shows, we can get a judgment on the spot and hope the bailiff requires payment right then (in some alternate universe it happens that way). If he doesn't show which appears likely, we get to put a lien on his property and wait for his appeal of the decision. He'll argue he wasn't served and will fail again, but it'll add a few more months to the saga while we wait for his appeals to be exhausted.

At this rate, I'll probably be nominated in 2011 and 2012 also.

You must be quite the optimist to have kept thinking "the next one will be the last" for so long. :applause:

Maybe when this is all over you'll get a special CAG award for most consecutive years being nominated. At the very least that guy should get an honorable mention in the villains category next year.

The scary thing would be if speed somehow loses....

Or maybe one of those courtroom TV show moments where the slum lord is like "Judge, I'd like to enter into evidence....a transcript of his accounts based on his cheapassgamer.com account!!!!"

I would find that hilarious

Fire fixes all of lifes problems. It is official.

I knew about the controlled fires thing regarding forest fires and the like before you mentioned it.. but didn't think about that at all when I typed my comment out originally.

So, Fire. that's the answer.

We have to wait a month until we can put a lien on his property. I'm going to go knock on the doors of his other tenants and explain exactly what he did to us, what the bullshit in the contract means, and tell em about his rape charges. I'm going to go to his current neighbors and tell them about the criminal charges. I'm going to try to go to his court date on for the criminal charges. With judgment in hand and him stiffing us again, I have full support from the others to exert maximum pressure. So that's what I'm gonna do.


Two things:

1) He can just walk out without paying - is that because he has a right to appeal?

2) Are you concerned that he will sue you for libel. I mean, it sounds like it would be baseless, but this guy seems pretty vindictive.

At this point, it was clear to me (and all of us I think) that he had no intention of ever paying us on a future date. The only carrot we had left was the promise to drop the suit. He says he will get the money and come back. My wife and one of the other tenants stays at the court house to wait for him to come back with the money. I go run some errands, buy a big cigar, and go back to the court house with 15 minutes to go. I stand out front and smoke the cigar, laughing the whole time.

He never comes back. At 5pm, the judgment is entered against the landlord.

Dude, I wouldn't go around talking to his neighbors or showing up at his criminal court dates. That's just fodder for him dragging you back into court, baseless or not.
