The blog schedule this week. Tomorrow will be Oscar Summary. Wednesday and Saturday's will be normal entries. If time permits there will be an entry on Thursday and Friday but no promises.
An update on the lawsuit against Mom. Just a recap. Mom & Dad owned with another couple a rental house in the not so nice parts of Portland several years ago. In May mom was notified by the county that there where several years of unpaid property taxes and they could have the property for the unpaid taxes. After looking at the property and finding it would have to be improved to be in terrible shape we pretty much backed off on it. Over the years Mom, Dad, and the other couple sold the property three times. And each time it was a private sale and didn't go through escrow. Proper deeds were not recorded. In November a trust decided to buy the property and came to all the people listed on the deed. They offered everyone listed on the property a sum of money to sign the deed over to them. Which everyone listed on the property did but G.C. Mom and B, wouldn't sign the deed over to them unless a hold harmless agreement was included. G.C. refused to sign the deed over and ignored all correspondence. In order to get clear title, the trust sued G.C. for clear title. G.C. found a shister attorney and countersued everyone included on the title. Mom received a summons and the lawsuit and was given thirty days to respond. After really wanting to go after G.C.'s attorney I took a deep breath and handed it over to my attorney brother. He called the trust's attorney. Because of the hold harmless agreement the trust is required to provide a defense for Mom & B. Grover said the attorney was just as nice as she could be. Lou, the trust's representative, is dying of cancer. The attorney said she would have to get Lou's permission to be our attorney since he was footing the bill. Apparently she did because we go the answer to the complaint yesterday. The lovely attorney responded to the thirty page complaint with one sentence:
"Plaintiff denies each and every allegation of Defendant's counterclaim."
Mom isn't out of it yet but she has a pretty damn good team on her side. An honest man, Lou, who honored an agreement to provide a defense with a well qualified, attorney, RP. An attorney son with a calm demeanor and knowledge of the law. And another son who is a fighter and if any of his relatives or friends are attacked is going after the offending parties with vengeance to make them rue the day they ever treated someone badly but is willing to temporarily stand back. Prayers and good thoughts for Lou Please.
