Bad Judge, Teretha Lundy Thomas

 

When you think the lTeretha Lundy Thomasaws are correct then you have to get a judge to read them the way the law was not meant to be read.  All of the Landlord/Tenant laws have been thrown in the thrash when it comes to Teretha Lundy Thomas.  Florida Statute 83.51  Landlord’s obligation to maintain premises.  Florida Statute 83.51 is what the landlord is suppose to do to maintain their apartment building up Florida Building Codes.  They are required to exterminate the rats, mice, roaches, ants, wood-destroying organisms, and bedbugs.

I had asked the landlord to do just that and he did not do it.  We had rats, mice, bugs and he was turning the building into a firetrap. I complained to the code department and by the time we went to court I had five different c0de inspectors ready to testify on how bad the building located at 253 NE 34th Street was.  But that was not enough for Judge Teretha Lundy Thomas even if the Florida Laws say that the Landlord was not allowed to let the building go to waste.

253 NE 34th Street East Side September 18 2007 008This building like every apartment building in the State of Florida is to be inspected each and every year by  the Division of Hotels and Restaurants of the Department of Business and Professional Regulation according to the Florida Statute 509.032. Does this building look like it could pass an inspection?  This apartment where the windows are broken out had a the 215 Building Corp. (the owners) employee living there.  This apartment did not have electric, running water, and did have the ceiling falling down, wall falling apart, and the floor falling in.  All of this was good for this judge. 

The statutes also says that if you complaint to the landlord or any government agencies that you cannot be evicted.  Judge Teretha Lundy Thomas throws this law out too.  Florida Statute 83.64 clearly states:

  83.64  Retaliatory conduct.–

(1)  It is unlawful for a landlord to discriminatorily increase a tenant’s rent or decrease services to a tenant, or to bring or threaten to bring an action for possession or other civil action, primarily because the landlord is retaliating against the tenant. In order for the tenant to raise the defense of retaliatory conduct, the tenant must have acted in good faith. Examples of conduct for which the landlord may not retaliate include, but are not limited to, situations where:

(a)  The tenant has complained to a governmental agency charged with responsibility for enforcement of a building, housing, or health code of a suspected violation applicable to the premises;

(b)  The tenant has organized, encouraged, or participated in a tenants’ organization;

The law also that the landlord must terminate the lease before an eviction can given and again this is a waste of good paper in the law books.

If you by any chance Judge Teretha Lundy Thomas you better as for another Judge because she is either getting paid off or she is so stupid and in either case she should be removed as a Judge.
