Default KITM back in court on 11/21 - help show support!

I just wanted to let everyone know that Dave and Carol Stasiak, owners of Kids in the Mudd Extreme Farm (www.kidsinthemudd.com), will be back in court defending their rights and the rights of private property owners and atv riders state wide on Wednesday November 21st. Im sure they would appreciate any and all support you can provide.

Myself and several members of the Southwest Michigan Jeepers have been subpoenaed to testify. Many other members of our club, the sturgis jeepers creepers, and other local clubs will be in attendance as well. The district 80 state representative(tonyaschuitmaker@house.mi.gov) has been contacted regarding the issues and has assured me that the issues are being addressed. As some of you may have seen on November 4th, Fox17 news has attached itself to this story as well. Many of us have been sending email to Fox17 to encourage them to provide coverage of the trial and I encourage any of you that haven't already to do the same (news@wxmi.com).

The hearing is scheduled to begin at 9am on November 21st at the Van Buren County Courthouse. The address to the courthouse is 212 East Paw Paw St, Paw Paw, MI 49079. Hope to see many of you there!

Thank you!

i just got served papers (10 minutes ago) for this wensdays court appointment for Hamilton township vs KITM.


I find this highly amusing, from what i can gather from others that have been served is that the township is trying to get people to say that KITM charged them to be on the property. And the reason i find this so amusing is that i have NEVER been on the propoerty nor even driven past it. Hell, other then i know its in Decatuar i have no clue as to where it is exactly. The most involved i have been in this battle is showing up to the ZBA hearings in support of KITM. That is the most involved i have been with KITM. Hell, i have only met the onwers of the property once face to face and that was in the township hall parking lot. I can't wait to show up weds and throw egg in their face. What a bunch of asshats. Somebody say RESEARCH

CheapThrillB2: Sorry to hear you are getting dragged into the mess, too. Its no real surprise to me that they don't know whats going on, though. Last time they forgot to bring all of their legal papers to court.

words from daves lawyer.....DO NOT let them drag one person aside alone. he said that if she wants to talk to us then we ALL need to be there. That way she can pressure one person. (she = township lawyer)

Oh and thats funny....someone that has never been there got one LOL

That was something that Ted Nugent used to stress to hunters going to local hearings, etc.

Never dress with your club colors or try to "look the part". He stressed to always go dressed with respect for the court. Try to always take the high road and come across professionally.

Their lawyer may try to discredit you by getting you to lose you temper, don't give in. I have had this done to me and it sure was fun knowing that I resisted the urge to swat that smarmy bastard & our side won.
