Hi, you are at my web page with information on the following subject:

Freedom of Speech

 

Unlike letters/flyers/calling cards I have put up on our mailbox stands that have been torn off, vandals cannot do the same to this info on my web site. Apparently some member(s) want to abridge my freedom of speech given to me by the United States Constitution Bill of Rights. The First Amendment states: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

 

On 8/21/04 in the Press-Enterprise was an article titled: "Judge orders actor to pay legal fees." Actor Burt Ward, former "Batman" television star, sued the Press-Enterprise for libel contending he had been defamed in an article. A judge dismissed the case on a state statue that protects against lawsuits meant to chill free speech. "Part of the protection offered by the statue is to require those who file merit less lawsuits to bear those lawsuits' inevitable financial burden," said the general counsel for the owner of the Press-Enterprise. "Through fee awards like this, individuals are prevented from using costly litigation to chill speech that they simply don't like," he said.

 

Laws passed by California government further restrict the Board of Directors and Euclid Management. Park Mediterrania HOA is a nonprofit corporation that is required to abide by both California Corporations Code "Nonprofit Mutual Benefit Corporations" and California Civil Code "Common Interest Developments." And this HOA also has its own Governing Documents that must conform to California code. Nowhere in the Governing Documents of the HOA that we all are suppose to abide by, is there a ban preventing homeowners from putting anything on the mailbox stands.
