“…SEE WHAT HAPPENS”
On December 11, 2023, Redmond attorney Andrew Fitch from the law firm FITCH & NEARY, wrote the Crooked River Ranch Board of Directors a “CEASE AND DESIST” letter.
“Primarily since 2020, but certainly before 2020, representatives of CRRA (Crooked River Ranch Association) have taken adverse actions against LLC’s predecessor Ranch Matters CRR and its members and in particular John A. Stevens.
This has been done via intimidation, interference and harassment against Ranch Matters. It appears these actions are in direct retaliation for Ranch Matters CRR reporting on matters of public interest at Crooked River Ranch.
It is hereby demanded that the CRRA Board IMMEDIATELY CEASE AND DESIST from all retaliatory conduct against Ranch Matters CRR.”
“The retaliation against Ranch Matters for its reporting culminated in the unlawful passing of three resolutions in June of 2022. On June 20, 2022, it appears that the CRRA Board of Directors unilaterally passed three resolutions that amended the Bylaws for the CRRA.
These are Resolutions 2022-620A, 2022-620B, and 2022-620C…”
“In short, the harassment, intimidation, and obstruction behavior by the CRRA must stop.
If it does not, all legal remedies will be pursued by my client.”
“YOU JUST KEEP IT UP, YOU WILL SEE WHAT HAPPENS” (Former Ranch VP/President Bill Burt, January 20, 2020)
Ranch Matters (RM) has reported in earlier stories that various current and former Ranch officials/representatives have been engaged in an on-going effort to disrupt, discredit, harass and silence not only our news reporting, but anybody that questions the Board’s actions and/or conduct.
They have used government entities, including the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office and the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) as part of their push to punish select Association members they deem the enemy.
Additionally, they have spent homeowners money on private lawyers for one purpose and one purpose only, to selectively bully and attack homeowners.
