  9. Hollywood Docket: Another Way To View the Foreclosure Mess

    10:13 pm 10/1/2008

    <p>Case: Paul C. Stepnes v. Peter Ritschel (Minnesota District), filed Sept. 29</p> <p>Claims: Civil rights violation, defamation, intentional interference with a contract, </p> <p>Allegations: CBS is one of the defendants in this lawsuit, along with one of its news reporters and members of the local police force. The plaintiff held a contest to raffle off a home. The twist is that the home was under foreclosure and that the plaintiff, unable to get full value for the home, wanted the proceeds from the &quot;creative business venture&quot; to go to paying off all those who were owed money on the house and any leftover profits, going to aide the homeless. The plaintiff received legal advice on how to avoid conducting a &quot;gambling&quot; venture but it didn't stop the police from bringing him up on charges. The news reporter documented the episode. Plaintiff alleges his rights were violated and that he was defamed. He's joined by the winners of the contest who believe the authorities interfered with a good-faith contract as represented by the raffle. Read the sign-of-the-times lawsuit <a href="http://www.courthousenews.com/2008/10/01/CBSMpls.pdf">here</a>.</p> Read more
