5 p.m. reruns, 2018-2019 season-
America Not So Great Again-An ex-convict who receives disability for PTSD from being shot in prison, moves in with a woman, and her family. Even though he's considered mentally fragile, and disabled the woman hires him as nanny for her special needs little girl, and I found that super creepy. He also was trying to potty train the six year old child.
Man has 4 biological kids with ex-wife, four or five, or six kids are out there. Plaintiff says four kids are actually adopted by other people. Christopher Clokey was arrested for parole violation, by going from Missouri to California (where Ms. O'Farrell lives), so he went back to prison for another year or so. He lived with O'Farrell in 2014, then 2016, and then back after prison. (I may be wrong on this, because I'm confused).
Defendant was released to plaintiff's address (his ex-wife, who he calls his wife, was not eligible to have him move in. No, I don't understand it), in California from Missouri (where he was in prison).
Plaintiff is suing defendant (ex-prisoner) for false restraining order, travel costs (she gave him the bus tickets, and expense money), a wardrobe (she sent him in prison for release to her home), and six months back rent. Man never repaid plaintiff anything over the years, so she had no expectation of repayment. Ms. O'Farrell was his payee for his Social Security Disability (that's not normal for regular disability), and cashed one check, and keeps it. Man drives, and does everything else, but still gets disability, and has a payee? As JJ says, he can do everything else other people do, drive, cook, tend children, make babies, etc, except he can't work. Case dismissed (no expectation of repayment, and plaintiff received money from his one SSDI check).
Landlord's Legal Troubles-A property manager denies having an inappropriate relationship with his ex-wife's divorce attorney when a former tenant accuses him posting a false eviction action on her credit report. The attorney who represents the defendant's ex-wife is also the plaintiff's child's father's attorney in a current custody case. About the same time the custody fight started, the eviction was posted on plaintiff's credit report.
It gets really interesting, when defendant blurts out he did not have sexual relations with his wife's attorney, who represents the plaintiff's ex in the custody battle. (The Yelp reviews on this property management company are all 1 stars).
Plaintiff claims she had to move out of apartment after another tenant attacked her, and she and her son moved out immediately. Plaintiff is suing ex landlord for putting a bogus eviction on her credit report after she moved out. This happened in 2012 through 2013, after she moves, after another neighbor tenant was arrested for assaulting plaintiff. Plaintiff showed defendant police report, and protective order. Other tenant was ultimately convicted, and sentenced to prison after plaintiff was evicted. Defendant placed the eviction information on the plaintiff's credit record only recently (six years later), and plaintiff now has trouble renting apartments. Plaintiff gets $5,000.
