Re: “The East Bay's Tow Hustle

The actions of PPI sound both legally wrongful and mean spirited.

We should also note that if you park in a stores private lot and then go shopping elsewhere, you are being abusive. This is not ok. If someone parked in my driveway to visit someone else, I would have them towed in a heartbeat.

It takes a lot of nerve to park in someones driveway or block it. So, why is it ok to park in someone elses private lot out of your personal convenience and Ill founded assumption that the behavior is ok?

They had no excuse including it was only going to be for 30 minutes. Sounds like discount city has been abused by freeloaders and chose to do something about it. That is not victimizing of the freeloaders - Discount City is not allowing itself to be victimized.

Re: “Debtor's Purgatory

I was unfortunate enough to have Judge Austin to preside over my case in 2017 in a business dispute. He completely ignored the law and the evidence. My attorney was useless. He said the judge could sanction him If he persisted too much on my evidence. He ruled in favor of the defendant who had defrauded me with clear convincing evidence.

My advice to everyone is to stop hiring attorneys because you'll be wasting your money. Recuse judge Austin if he presides over you case, unless your attorney has had previous success with him.
