What Really Happened

22 Jul

So now that the law suit is over, I am left with some basic questions. The biggest being, what happened to my car? I wish the lot had video cameras so we could have seen what happened.

I was told by a number of people that the person driving the car when the damage happened had to have known something happened. The car would make a very loud noise, it would shake and stop running. So either the parking attendant lied his manager (or did not tell him it happened) or the manager lied to the company, or the company lied to the court. We will never know the truth!

I drove the car in and the damage happened at their lot, so what happened to it???

My Hero

Check out this website. This guy rocks, and I am feeling more than a little inspired by him.


It is over

15 Jul

The fact that a good lawyer will beat a good case was proven last week. I lost when the Judge ruled my report was an opinion and since I did not retain the engine, I could not prove what the damage was.

Clearly if you are wronged, you must be thinking litigation right away, while I was thinking claim and fix my car.

I will post some more interesting things in the days to come, but for now, I get my life back and the “man” won.

Coming to an end

13 Jun

So we are set for trail in about a month. We have exchanged a lot of paper and they are spending a lot of money to defend an un-winable position. But that is their right.

Wish me luck

We reached a Milestone

This blog just passed 500 views.  Not bad for a little guy fighting a huge corporation!

More Paper

29 Mar

So the law firm with many names decided to file even more paper.  Some of their arguments are very good, but it is clear they do not understand the rules governing the court we are in.  But what really angered me was they again brought my employer into the issue, this time in a public legal filing.  Their response to me trying to frame the argument as a “David v. Goliath” fight was to state that I work for XXXXX a large insurance company.  ARGH

They decide to fight

26 Mar

So rather than paying me for the engine they destroyed, they hired a law firm with lots of names to fight the default judgement.  They served me at least a inch of paper.  Smart move, I wonder how much that cost them.

I am no longer ignored

19 Mar

So I have this Default Judgment and I am feeling good about myself, my first lawsuit win.  Next thing I know “a company that shall remain nameless” had an agent of theirs call my employer and complain that I was harassing them.  They threatened to go to my CEO if I did not stop harassing them!

I am still ignored

14 Mar

The company does not bother to answer the law suit.  Default judgement!!!  You think it would end there, but the saga continues

Sorry it has been so long since I posted

12 Mar

I will be posing new entries far more often going forward. For tonight’s post only two comments

1. Central Parking merged with Standard Parking. If my recent experience is any indication they may be worse than Central Parking

2. Over 100 separate people have viewed my blog. While that may not sound like a lot, I am pretty happy for a little guy vs. a big corporation fight.

Thanks for your support
