The Alliance Members’ “Motion to Strike Portions” of Our Lawsuit’s Complaint Is No Impediment

Dear Bel-Air Association Members and Community,

The Alliance members who purport to have taken over the Bel-Air Association incorrectly accused us Sunday night of having “left out” an allegedly “salient point” from our last communication, the fact that they have filed a motion to strike our complaint and that it is scheduled before our judge on May 27, 2016. (Their Sunday night communication is available here.) Their motion, which they have not shared, is available here.

It’s not a “salient point” because their motion is to strike only portions of our complaint, only five “phrases” and only one introductory paragraph. It does not seek to strike our entire complaint, nor any significant portion of it.

We strongly believe that their motion to strike portions of our complaint is unlikely to succeed, and that it is even more unlikely to delay our June 1 court hearing on their invalid self-election.

We remain undeterred in holding them accountable for the immense harm that they have done to our Association and community by their invalid and selfish actions.

Sincerely,

Ron Hudson
Your Bel-Air Association President

June 1, 2016 Court Hearing to Determine Invalidity of March 17, 2016 “Special Meeting”; May 11, 2016 Annual Meeting of Members Postponed to June 29, 2016; and May 11, 2016 Special Meeting Canceled

Dear Bel-Air Association Members and Community,

Further to our last communication to you (April 22), the court has set a hearing date on June 1, 2016 to determine whether the purported March 17, 2016 “special meeting” by members of the Bel Air Homeowners Alliance was an invalid meeting of the Bel-Air Association. (Our prior communication to you is available here. Anyone who is interested may review copies of our complaint here and our opening brief here.)

Because the court hearing is set to take place after May 11, 2016, the date previously set by the Association’s Board of Directors for the Annual Meeting of the Association’s Members, the Association’s Board met on Friday afternoon to postpone the Annual Meeting until June 29, 2016.

Additionally, the Board canceled the Special Meeting of Members that it had previously set at the request of some of the same Alliance members for the same date (May 11, 2016) because, among other reasons, those Alliance members have publicly communicated their withdrawal of their request that the Association hold that Special Meeting.

We know how confusing the situation is with the current litigation pending to determine who are the valid representatives entitled to control the Association, especially with all of the desperate takeover actions by and communications from the Alliance members purporting to act on behalf of the Association, including the incessant, biased “articles” published in the Beverly Hills Courier, which has Alliance member Marcia Hobbs as its Publisher. But the good news is that we expect a favorable court decision resolving the situation on or soon after June 1.

Please be comforted in knowing that we will continue to fight for your interests and seek to hold these Alliance members accountable for their unauthorized, harmful and selfish actions.

Sincerely,

Ron Hudson
Your Bel-Air Association President
