Judges, Lawyers and Courts, Oh My!

I wonder how much a contractor, who stays in court so much, manages to run his business. Dave Exline does seem to spend an inordinate time in court. Whether it be construction related or not, the only way to find out would be to either call and ask Exline, or perhaps show up for one of his court dates on 8/15 AND 8/16. Could this be why the houses he is working on in Monterey County and San Diego County have yet to be finaled? This could also explain why he was not able to do more than 3-4% per month on my house, because if I spent this much time in court, my productivity and quality of work would suffer. Strangely enough, his son/my job site manager has also been spending a lot of time in court as well. The fruit does not fall far it seems.

Perhaps one of his current attorneys would be interested in knowing how much time he spends in court, how much he switches attorneys, and last but not least, how many houses he has actually finished without having some type of conflict with the owner. Finished being the operative word.

Someone once told me that reasonable people do not end up in court. What does it say when a business owner, may have to spend at least 1 day per month (on average) 'defending' himself.

In the end, it would just be best to ....To Three Little Pigs Construction. CA. Lic. #420523
