Several months ago I wrote a series about the board of directors at a home owners association (HOA) called Crossroads III and their trials and tribulations. They were fighting with their community manager and association lawyer, who were in control of half of the board, refusing to hand over documents and obstructing the running of the association in general.
Every attempt to get help from the real estate division had failed, and as I reported in the paper and on this site, everywhere I went to try and secure help for these ladies failed. County commissioners, their assemblywoman, the senior law project, everywhere. But then one day I was introduced by a friend to an attorney by the name of Richard Scotti who is running for district court judge. She told me what a nice man he was and that, not only was he running for a judgeship, but he hated people who took advantage of seniors. My friend thought I should talk to him about Crossroads III.
