... and my money is on Fane Lozman. The guy has gone to the Supreme Court twice and won twice. It's pretty amazing. This time, DOJ is hounding him about a floating home on his property. Here's the letter he received:
Here is the home at issue:
I spoke to Mr. Lozman and he told me that he was going to respond to the DOJ with a letter that basically says "F*** off." And that he did just that. Here's the intro to his response:
letter, attached below, is a sloppy attempt to intimidate me. Let's start
with my answer to your settlement offer, that would require me to remove my
floating residential structure from my homesteaded, private property in
I am never moving my floating home off of my private property!
request is Un-American. What country do you represent?
floating home is not fill, which is usually rock and sand that is placed in
submerged lands to create dry land. Instead my floating home is the legal
equivalent of a residential house built on land, as recognized by the State of
Florida with my homestead designation, and the U.S. Supreme Court in its opinion,
Lozman v. Riviera Beach. 568 U.S. 115 (2013). Both of my cases were argued
at Georgetown's Supreme Court Moot Court program. Did you really graduate
from Georgetown law school, because that is hard to believe given the
multiple grammatical errors in your letter and lack of comprehension as to what
is Supreme Court precedent.
And it concludes this way:
go for it, criminally charge me along with pursuing a civil enforcement case,
that you can set for trial. Both the district judge and jury will think
that you and Sydney are bullies and have wasted their time with your
nonsensical pleadings. By the way, does Attorney General Merrick Garland
know that you threatened me with your bullshit letter? Your flippant attitude
for SCOTUS precedent, and lack of comprehension as to the limitations of 33
U.S.C.§ 403, reflects poorly on the Department of Justice. I and others
will make sure that it is formally addressed with Attorney General Garland
and those in your direct chain of command.
All the best,
