"I do not care if you went to law school. You cannot threaten me!"

So, walking into the neighborhood on my dog walk, I saw a car parked in an odd place and took my iphone camera out, just in case. Saw a white haired man sitting in the driver seat, pointing his finger at the dashboard. But I never heard his voice because he became quiet as I walked by. Instead, I thought I heard a child's voice saying, "I do not care if you went to law school. You cannot threaten me!"

I don't think it was a child, however. Maybe a woman's voice garbled by the speaker phone because the conversation was very elevated in syntax.

Listen everyone, as long as I have lived in this community I have been aware that lawyers have dicked around and abused their professional ethics in order to keep us in line. I don't know who this woman was, or what was going on, but I sympathize with her. We need something far more effective to consumers than the Florida Bar to help us.

1. Just out of curiosity

 


What makes you believe the person in the car was a lawyer, and what makes you believe that the conversation was with someone with whom he had a professional relationship of some kind instead of some inter-personal issue?

It would make more sense as "I do not care if you are a lawyer. You cannot threaten me.", if the person in question is a lawyer, since not everyone who has attended law school is a lawyer.

2. Because our Associations are involved in a lawsuit.

And everything is hush-hush on my side of the development, so I know that tensions are flaring. Oh, and people around here use whatever they got to bully people around. Nice to hear someone pushing back.

3. Are all of the parties to the lawsuit represented by counsel?

 


If so, you believe that this person was a lawyer involved in the lawsuit, and was calling someone directly instead of communicating with opposing counsel?

4. You're looking at it deeper than I did. I made no such presumptions.

Just that my experience with lawyers around here has been that they tend to dick around with their interpretation of the laws to suit their purpose. It's a huge disadvantage for us who don't have the legal background for a rebuttal. But it isn't uncommon to see copycat behavior anyway. I can track some convoluted, twisted decisions made by good ole boys in this community to things that the city attorneys said in city meetings. I can see where their logic goes off the rails, but there is no point to explain it to them because they have their support group in the peanut gallery.

Frankly, someone claiming they went to law school as a way to bolster their credentials would not be a surprise. Not at all.
