Court: Driver Can Sue Developer

By Patricia Farrell Aidem - December 23, 2005 - Santa Clarita Daily News
A driver who had been drinking and admitted he took a curve too fast can sue The Newhall Land and Farming Company because his car skidded off a Valencia road and hit a berm on the firm's land, causing his sports car to overturn.

In a ruling issued Wednesday by the state Court of Appeal, justices overturned a lower-court decision relieving the Valencia-based development company of liability. The court did not find the company at fault, but reversed a judgment that summarily relieved it of responsibility.

Motorist Douglas Domel of Santa Clarita also has legal action pending against the city of Santa Clarita and the manufacturer of the 2001 Dodge Viper he was driving.

The trial lawyer defense association, i.e. appeal court judges, once again defended the assumption that being innocent of any wrongdoing will not protect you from America's system of corruption and extortion, the courts. All stockholders of Newhall Land and Farming Company, even widows whose sole source of income is a small portion of this company's stock, were just found guilty of "having deep pockets".

In the minds of the totalitarian socialists on our appeal courts who are determined to turn our courts into a government "of the judges, by the judges and for the lawyers", that is the most evil situation that can occur. Having money and not being a judge or a socialist is unacceptable in our current political climate. Actually I may have mis-spoken. It is not unacceptable to have it. It is just unacceptable to KEEP it.
