Mr. Bolen
You have been placed on the unsubscribe list for the Arizona Homeowners Forum some time ago.
Your email appears publicly on the CAI Central Arizona web site. The letter I received, unsigned, says the Central Arizona Board of Directors, not all Directors except you. There’s no reference to excluding you. Hence your inclusion on my response. I believe your firms address also appears on the resignation notice by Amcor as Statutory Agent for the Crossings. Hence you were faxed on a recent records request. I’m also perfectly within my rights to respond to a menacing letter emanating from the CAI Board challenging my constitutional rights.
Please note and/or respond to the following:
  1. As a supposed attorney, you should know that derogatory and defamatory are not the same. One of the big differences is the truth. A truthful statement cannot be defamatory
  2. I have testified in state hearings about you, your firm and others like you. The AHF blog is a vehicle for influencing government action and states that clearly. As such it is protected. Please read the anti-SLAPP statutes. They are not that complicated.
  3. In previous testimony I have described firms like yours, and the now defunct Ekmark & Sons, as practicing legal terrorism in Homeowners Associations. Quite often upon single women. That remains my view
  4. The golden days when you and your colleagues could get away with that – because you think you can – are over!
  5. The best or the worst advice you ever offered was to me to “get a hobby” – be careful what you wish for. I took your advice
In your capacity as a pillar of virtue in the Arizona HOA industry, please answer the following questions
  1. Why did you resign precipitously from representing the Crossings in the middle of a still pending case before the OAH – after billing approximately $10,000 – that we know of?
  2. We are the prevailing party in another records case against the Crossings at Willow Creek in Prescott. Why have you refused to honor a default judgement from the Arizona Dept. of Real Estate within the 30-day period now past?
    • In particular to give up the Association records the subject of that petition which you stated you hold!
  3. In your letter announcing your resignation of Aug 8th
    • You referred to certain expenses being prepaid between July 31st and the date of your letter, 8 days later
    • Were you and/or Amcor the beneficiary of those payments?
    • Mr. May of Amcor was the sole signatory on the Crossings Bank Account – why would those payments, if any, not be fraudulent conveyance to be repaid within 270 days of a bankruptcy filing?
  4. In that same August 8 letter, you waned of the possible receivership of the HOA within the 90-day preference period.
    • Why would an attorney ever put that in writing?
  5. Have you or your firm retained an attorney?
I welcome your response here or on the blog

Mr. Sellers - your action below is just another example of your harassment and malice. I have asked you a number of times to cease and desist emailing me and defaming my firm and myself.  
I intentionally recused myself from any vote dealing with you. 
This is my final request. I have only shown you professionalism and respect over the years. I only ask for the same.
