The neighbor from hell moved in four years ago, never takes care of his home or property, has video taped our property, invaded our privacy and provokes our dogs constantly to try to get them to bark. They are labs and good with our children and other dogs, people, and are non-aggressive. He has bullied us by suing us for 25,000,00 plus punitive damages. No one was ever hurt, and no damages.
As defendants with two small children I have tried to settle, paid a lawyer 2,500 dollars so far and only 15min of actual court, but because the husband (who is a school teacher) has a brother who is a criminal lawyer who is representing them and the wife became a secretary for a law firm (that is not even representing them), they have bullied us into selling our home of eight years and moving out of town.
We have letters from all other neighboring properties telling the truth, but they seemed to manipulate their way into a trial date for january. I pray for a good judge who will see these plaintiffs for what they are: gold diggers and bullies!
I sold my house and lost money but at least my kids will be better off away from them. I would never do such a thing to anyone's family and believe as a catholic to be good to thy neighbor as our laws were fundamentally built with good morals. I hope justice is served to them and all their lies! They are gold digging bullies! Wish my family luck at our january 2012 trial.
