I would like to report on what happened at my Small Claims action for production of documents.
I appeared before Judge John Flynn 111. The first thing he did was greet the defendant by name and apologize for having kept HER, Wendy Panizza, from PCM, the property management company who was representing the United Laguna Woods Mutal HOA, waiting.
The next thing the Judge did was to ask the Defendant to explain her case. This is out of line with Court procedure. Always, the Plaintiff, should go first and present their case.
The defendant went into her explanation over and over again, that there were no accounting records to produce since the Board only wanted to know the use of the washing machines, laundry room by laundry room and not how much cash was taken from each laundry room
My case was for an accounting of cash collected from the laundry rooms, laundry room by laundry room. The Board had asked the management company to do this task and in fact gave them extra money in order to determine the use of the washing machines, laundry room by laundry room. A graph was presented to the Board showing the usage. This graph was given to the Judge.
My argument was that if the management company could produce a graph showing the use of the washing machines, that there had to be an accounting of the cash collected from each laundry room.
I won my case, $500 fine with $60 costs, but the Judge has not directed Defendant to produce the records, which I presume, PCM/the Board do not want me to see. What are they hiding?
