Lynne to Livia
Although this doesn't directly pertain to Staddon vs. Griever as a court case, it relates to one of the events surrounding my work with the Grievers. Apparently Lynne somehow got it into her head that she and Bubba had some kind of right to be in Red House tenants, when in fact I was the only tenant and they were my guests.
The following message was just one of several exchanges between the Grievers, Livia, and myself regarding my scheduled move-out from Red House, which unfortunately also involved making sure that the Grievers got their stuff moved out as well.
Livia's final reply on the subject was on 2002-09-05.
August 31, 2002
This notification is an attempt, on my part, to be very clear about my position.
I am willing to have all of our stuff out of the house by September 9th, 2002 (6 days prior to our agreement).
We are willing to have vehicles moved by September 20th 2002, as per our agreement.
We are also willing to solidify agreements to have the remainder of things belonging to us from the land behind the house by October 1st 2002.
No one has our permission to move, pack or otherwise disturb our belongings before that time. I have spoken to an attorney and where we have:
- 1) Proof of occupancy beyond 3 years
- 2) A Business License at that address
- 3) Email supporting negotiations
You must serve legal notice of eviction before forcibly removing our belongings.
If you insist on proceeding with your plans to move, pack or remove our things, a police report will be filed. A copy of the emails will be submitted as a part of the report. At this time, you will need to provide proof that you notified us that we needed to be out BEFORE this date.
If you cannot provide such proof, you will need to file something on Tuesday, which will begin the eviction process. Evictions can take time.
It's in your court now.
Let me know what's next...
PS I don't really want to go this route. I've tried to reason with you from several standpoints. I've tried to be clear that I am unable to accommodate your desire to change the original plan. I can say it louder and you can state more reasons why you want to change what you said... I thought you would have recognized that this was not a negotiable thing before now. Where every attempt I have made has only generated a need for more correspondence and more anguish... I've had to explore other avenues of reason.
I will not follow through with this just to be nasty. It's not about that. I will only exercise my legal rights if you insist on disregarding my rights as a fellow human being... person to person... friend to friend... It hurts that I even have to go here. I'll back off in a heartbeat if you agree to live up to your word.
