Hello everyone,

Below is an article posted in the AHRC site.

Peters and Freedman Loses Yet Another Lawsuit
May 20, 2009 by Fan

A previously low key and quiet community in downtown San Diego has been in turmoil with extensive legal challenges and issues since David Peters became its attorney. The amount of money spent on legal fees by this small association was absolutely absurd. After a questionable annual election run by David Peters in summer 2008 and having had enough, a group of homeowners filed a recall petition to recall the entire board. David Peters put up every obstruction possible to prevent the recall in order to protect the incumbent directors. He tried to enact election rules inconsistent with the bylaws, violated state statutes and came up with what appears to be a mythical Inspector of Elections known as "MSG". After making every attempt to work with this incumbent board and this problematic attorney to assure that a fair recall election would occur, a lawsuit was brought by Lawrence Gallego, a resident with a backbone who was represented by San Diego Attorney Greg Garriso n (858) 622-7878. Even in front of a superior court judge David Peters would not consent to having the judge rule on issues to insure a fair recall election. A five day trial ensued and the Superior Court Judge summarily dismissed Mr. Peters' spurious arguments and recalled the entire board and replaced the old board with a new homeowner elected board. his community was financially devastated by the legal fees of the law firm of Peters & Freedman. All homeowner association should be very cautious and do their research before selecting their homeowner association counsel.
