What is it with Friday's?.......

In light of the events of today, both this morning and this afternoon, I feel it's important to let you faithful readers know what has happened.

This morning we met with our attorney to discuss the most recent motion that David Symons has filed. A motion to show cause why the defendant should not be held in contempt for violating court order. I was planning on posting the motion in it's entirety, however, in light of this afternoons events, I will not do so at this time. I will reserve that for a future posting.

This motion was filed on January 2, 2009, in it, David Symons seeks the court to impose sanctions, payments of costs and attorney fees in the sum of $3,500.00, plus costs and expenses and grant other relief as the court should deem appropriate.

Why?

For what valid reason does he feel it necessary to go so far off target?

Having just met with the facilitator to address the issue of the cottage contents, the only things left unresolved are the attorneys fees, and a few minor technical matters. Then the deeds can be drawn up and the money paid. Neither of which has been done yet. Then the cottage will be sold.

I can assure you all it was never our intention that this play out in the open and involve people who had nothing to do with it. We are sincerely sorry that this has happened. There are some really great people who through no action of their own have been thrust into the middle of this and for that we offer our sincere apologies.

Now is not the time or place to get into a he said she said spitting match. We will address all of that later. It is sad that we have been forced to make public some of our dirty laundry, we truly did not want to do that, but after the events of the last 60 days, we felt we had been left with no choice. It was important to get our voice heard. The other side of the story if you will.

More later.....

None of this should ever have been put into a public arena. Repeated efforts from mother to meet and discuss this issue among family members have been rebuked. Why? No way to know. The Saginaw county circuit court provides all the information in chronological order of the activity that the plaintif chose to make public. Is there anyone who truly understands how this mess impacts my mother? Her entire life, all 81 years were spent at the (family)cottage? She does not deserve this. All we can do is respond to motion after motion after motion. It needs to end. We have been over this for a long time. Why can't (or won't) the plaintiff just pay for the cottage and get on with it?

Sounds as if the plaintiff is trying to stall the sale on account of the market. If he buys it now he'll lose money. Your mother or the members of Lakeside, Seems he doesn't care about anyone except for himself. He's a laughing stock for all to see.

Just a note of clarification here...this issue is about certain owners of one cottage. Period. Never have we wanted, nor do we think it should reflect on the sanctity of the camp and other cottage owners. If we can stick to the issue and not spread it out beyond those parameters we can all help the camp stay a private and peaceful place.

It doesn't seem like the Plaintiff is stalling because of the market. Michigan real estate is in the toilet right now-- so it would actually be a great time to consummate the sale.

He's probably stalling because he doesn't have the $$$-- his portfolio is probably way down due to the stock market, Bernie Madoff, whatevers...
