Additionally, the defendants took a drainage ditch for storm water, filled it in, and planted evergreen trees in what used to carry storm water passed our properties. Defendants did not have an easement to use either Blue Goose Avenue or Mallard Street because prior owners had never complied with the Land Development Act of 1967. We had requested an injunction against their use of the roads to bargain with them to get the fence off the road and open the storm drain.
On May 15, 2014, Defendants filed a Motion for Security for Costs and attached a brief in support of that motion. Defendants’ attorney opened in their Introduction with the following statement:
“For Defendants Tom Benson and John Kluessendorf, life the past four years has been a living nightmare and there is one reason why; Plaintiff Pat Foster, their neighbor.
Since 2010, Mr. Benson and Mr. Kluessendorf have been forced to endure unrelenting harassment, annoyance, fear for their health and physical safety, and the dejection of realizing that their dreams of peaceful retirement have been usurped and become a daily horror.”
On June 17, 2014, Plaintiff Pat Foster filed an answer to their motion and brief. On page two of the answer, I stated that their statement was “completely false”, and I stated:
“Karen Wellman, a good friend of mine who was the democratic candidate for Allegan County Commissioner for the Saugatuck/Douglas area in the 2006 General Election, and Chair of the Democratic Club of West Michigan wrote an Affidavit for me after Mr. Benson requested and received an Ex Parte PPO against me on May 4, 2014. Affidavit states: “Thanksgiving of 2010 Pat invited his new neighbors to join us. Pat often includes neighbors in his holiday feast and shares in the harvest from his garden. I have had the opportunity to meet many wonderful Hutchins Lake people at Pat’s gatherings. I remember that evening clearly as Pat was so pleased that it appeared that he had some delightful new neighbors. The new neighbors welcomed Pat’s gestures of friendship and hospitality.”
