If you wreck your car, and insurance pays to fix it, are they fixing it for the insurance company, or the insured? The lawyer represented the affected, insured parties-not the insurance company. Regardless, the case was dismissed “with prejudice”, meaning the judge thought the case had no merit, and was a waste of the court’s and defendants time, and that the plaintiff should pay for wasting said time.
Really?? Wouldn’t that make you a party to the legal proceedings? You may not have been named in the suit, but if it was filed in retaliation for the disciplinary measures taken as a result of you and your colleagues alleged actions, and you have full knowledge of that fact, you were at least involved. Seems like being involved in a frivolous lawsuit filed against the company you represent as a director would be a serious conflict of interest. Not to mention that you were representing the space as a director after the precedent has already been set (by the board on which you reside) that a member cannot hold a position of authority while involved in legal proceedings that involve DMS. Tell me again about shading yourself as the good guy?
This is purely speculation as there has not been a competent treasurer in office in the 2+ years since I have been a member at DMS.
One thing that is not speculation is that the decisions of the current D&O have taken the responsibility and liability of expansion and placed it in the hands of the membership at large instead of a licensed and bonded construction company who would be liable for any problems or mistakes made in the build-out.
No, it was sabotaged by—You know what? I’m going to stop before I get banned for sedition. This board has also set the precedent that they will ban you if they don’t like the nature of the complaint you file.
-Removal of opposition
-Consolidation of power
-Censorship of public forums
-Cliquish, bully mentality
-Control! Control! Control!
These are the main complaints I hear from the general membership about the current D&O on almost a daily basis.
This also sounds like the playbook for just about every oppressive regime or fanatical fascist oligarchy I studied in school.
This is not a legacy I would want to leave behind.
