It is the right of every United States citizen to have access to their land. This is the case in almost every state and county in the United States with the exception of Miami Dade County. Miami Dade has a liberal one-sided judge in their courts. Judge Thomas has sided with Green East and Allen Greenwald to remove an easement that has been in existence since 1935, in essence land-locking the business. Of course this affected the business greatly creating yet another business closure. An easement is considered as a property right in itself at common law and is still treated as a type of property in most jurisdictions - with the exception of Miami Dade County and Judge Thomas.
Since 1978, Ted Vernon Specialty Autos was a thriving business located on 471 NE 79th St, Miami, Florida. The easement that was provided on the deed of the land purchased by Ted Vernon was on the left side of the property. It was an appropriate easement to conduct business for over 30 years. Ted Vernon Specialty Autos provided jobs to quite a few of Miami Dade's citizens in that area. Because Judge Thomas decided to rule in favor of Green East without a valid reason superseding an existing ruling that took place in 1935, the business lost profits, people lost their jobs and the business had to undergo the costs of acquiring and moving to another location. Doesn't that make us wonder how powerful Green East is and why on earth would Judge Thomas render a decision like that? That's because he sided with the largest contributor to the Democratic Party in South Florida. Stephen Bittel is one of the stockholders of the land owner (Green East) was the principal owner of Terranova Corporation, who also managed the property.
Steven Bittel, owner of the Terranova Corporation (http://www.terranovacorp.com/), contributed loads of money to the Democratic Party in Florida (http://www.campaignmoney.com/political/contributions/stephen-bittel.asp?cycle=12). Judge William Thomas is a democratic judge (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/15/william-thomas-first-gay-black-man-judge_n_2141660.html). Anyone see a connection here?
Does Miami Dade actually need to have fewer jobs available to our citizens because of Judge Thomas's wrong doing and illegal rulings?
This issue affects every single citizen in the United States. We have the right to enter our land and utilize it as necessary. Why should another business close because of Miami Dade's corruption? Judge Thomas gave the full right of easement to the development company.
Circuit Judge William Thomas has shown on numerous occasions blatant disregard for the rights of Miami Dade citizens, as well as City of Miami citizens, business owners of Miami Dade County and landowners of Miami Dade County. Take the case of Ana Maria Angel, who was brutally raped and killed in South Beach. Her boyfriend was stabbed. Judge Thomas threw out the case of the alleged triggermen, because he didn't feel the Miranda rights were read right (http://anamariaangel.blogspot.com/).
If you have been wronged by Circuit Judge William Thomas we want to hear from you. We, the Citzens of Miami Dade County deserve justice and respect.
