When he reached into his pocket, I thought he was going to pull out a gun.

Based on his alleged sexual practices, I was afraid he'd pull out something else.

If anyone could say or know this, it'd definitely be you, Chakan.

Can't wait to hear more of this story, Speed!

I'm imagining speedracer's voice gravelly like Rorshach's in Watchmen.

lol, YES! Although i was imagining batmans voice (dark knight).

unfortunate start but its great that it is turning out well for you. I've been rammed by a land lord before and it seemed the rape was inevitable. glad u turned the tables on him though.

I don't wanna hear updates to this story, because it seems like there will be one where the landlord pulls off an upset and gets what he wants....and the thread will look weird

This thread is great. It has everything: drama, comedy, suspense, severed wangs -- what's not to love?

When you used 'Speed Racer' in the story rather than your real name, I was very confused until I remembered that your username is SpeedRacer. :/ Great story though. It feels like one of those stories that takes a major twist at the end though.

No doubt. We feel like we're as well positioned as possible to handle his lawsuit (assuming he files the appeal by tomorrow evening, which we are 100% sure he will). Because we live in a state with such a strong streak of property and capital defense (for lack of a better way to say it) and even though the burden is on him to prove his case, we're still feeling the heat of the possibility that a different judge will see it his way. We're encouraged because the judge we went before is known as a neutral (not pro-tenant or pro-landlord) and she ruled in our favor without reservation. But all it would take is an appellate judge that thinks all tenants are scum and we'd be in trouble. Hell, the court case heard before ours last Friday was a tenant that refused to leave and didn't give a damn what the landlord said. Since I imagine landlords appeal far more often than tenants, I think it'd be fair to say appellate judges are conditioned by their case load to perceive tenants as sneaky bastards.

On the other hand, it's clear from the original judge's ruling that she saw this completely in our favor. Luckily for us, she is the only judge that handles cases filed at the court she oversees and so we know when we counter sue for the deposit + all the other crap we're going to try to pin on him for bad faith, we have an already sympathetic ear. But our ability to do so depends on the outcome of the original eviction case, which is what will be appealed.

Until then, we're in limbo and our destiny is out of our hands. A win is a win and we'll take it for sure, but that win on Friday was just the first of many battles in this war.

Stumbled upon this thread and laughed out loud a couple times. Your updates are very vivid and I feel as if I'm sitting in the court room watching Speed Racer and Mr. Slumlord duel it out. Keep it up!

Sir, you are my hero!

I have just finished reading the entire updated post up until now and, aside from laughing out loud every few minutes in disbelief, I am utterly serious in saying I pray to God and every other deity that you take this chump on until you butt rape this loser for every last penny. (No gay) For his other offenses I hope he ends up rotting in jail for at least a couple decades, with a sexy new boyfriend named Leonard.

What a total POS!

What's going on here is that he probably thinks he's some kind of genius and he's likely never had anyone oppose him as vehemently as you have, so he keeps on fighting and fighting. He's going down with his ship because he won't let go of the wheel. Please don't let anyone sway your decisions from here on out (sorry to the wife and other tenants), take this sack of crap to the cleaners. Please do it for all the thousands of tenants all over this country who get pissed on by skeevy landlords every month.

I will be waiting for the next update! I only wish I could come to the courthouse to watch the implosion in real time.

Thank you for sharing your story.
Good luck! (Although I doubt you need it.)

Indeed.

I hope when this is all done, that speedracer will post a pic.
