Yup. We’re STILL fighting our legal battle. Because we’re still in litigation, I can’t say much other than, mediation this week did not go well… at all. The plaintiff walked out at our offer.

Looks like this is going to turn into a jury trial.

Looks like our attorney’s fees are going to continue going cha-ching, cha-ching, cha-ching.

They say California is a ‘sue happy’ state. People sue for just about anything and yes, it’s 100% true. As eternal defendant, I can tell you, this is getting very old… and VERY expensive.


Bills, Bills, Bills

Boy oh boy. October is turning out to be a tough month financially… and we aren’t even home for half of it!!

First we had the security problem, now we have more legal fees.

My husband is being called in for another deposition on the three year old lawsuit against us.

Short synopsis: Someone injured themselves on city property in front of our home and we’ve been fighting the legal battle ever since. Gotta love California.

Our share of the expense is $125.

Not bad in the scheme of legal fees, but painful on personal finances. I can understand why people settle lawsuits when the fault is not theirs. After a while, you grow to a level of weary you can’t even explain.
