Auckland Council abusing its power

Postby sorbolene » Wed Oct 19, 2016 12:05 pm

Thought I'd share this one...

Had Auckland Council come over last year, two flat mates were at the flat in Riverhead. Apparently the noise control guy came up to the door and spoke with Andrew a few times - Andrew trespassed the noise officer and he came back at 3am with 6 police officers, who kicked in the door and took my bloody play station 3! The police didnt even cite a reason for entry

The next day when I contacted Auckland Council I told them I wasnt home, there was some kind of incident at my house and now my door is off its hinges and I am missing my PS3. They said Id need to come in for an interview and pay $350 or something. I thought 'theres no way in hell I am paying that" so I appealed the seizure in the Environment Court.

Judge Smith from the Environment Court advised settlement was the best option, so we made a written agreement, whereas they would give my PS3 back without delay. When I got it back, all the ports to the playstation had been 'jimmyed' with a knife, so it cant be plugged in or anything.
I phoned the councils lawyer who said he would investigate.

After a few months we heard nothing, so filed the matter back in the Environment Court. The case got thrown out of the Environment Court by Judge Smith, as he noted that it had already been withdrawn and cannot proceed on foot.

So I filed in the Auckland District Court to try to: get a replacement playstation, general disbursements of the costs I have incurred, and some costs for the absolute slog I have had to go through and the apparent unlawful and immoral actions of the council . The first case management hearing in the ADC the council tried pushing to get the case thrown out to the Disputes Tribunal, however Judge Hinton decided it wouldnt happen, and we would proceed towards a Judicial Settlement Conference.

A few weeks later, we had a JSC worth $900.00 - the council wanted me to settle at $800 not the $1,500 as suggested by Judge Hinton. So there was no settlement. Judge Hinton said that the matter was maybe best suited to the Disputes Tribunal, and that we should have another hearing to see if it should go there. So I have recieved another 'invite' to a Case Management Hearing in Janruary 2017 for that.

Whats everyones thoughts anyway. Seems kind of odd the Council cant just admit they are wrong.

Contact Penny Bright and ask for advice. https://www.facebook.com/penny.bright.104

The Auckland council fucking hate her

That's because she's a fuck head.Worst advice.

Re OP: good effort for going the whole slog. Most people would have given up by now which is what they are counting on. Sounds like you will win, just got to keep at it. If it all turns to shit, get the papers involved they love this shit. Sounds like some small minded power tripper at the Council is trying to justify their job.

No matter what any one thinks of her, one thing is certain, she knows her shit and has been giving the Auckland council the legal run around for years. If I wanted to challenge them I'd definitely check in with Penny.

Wouldn't hurt to pursue a police complaint as well maybe?

Damn, good job pursuing it.

If you manage to annoy someone (someone who matters, specifically) enough, or make htem actually have to do some work, I'm sure they'll shell out quick. Fuck, if I imagine the tax money they've spent so far just to not have to admit fucking up your PS3... what a bunch of fucks.

"Welcome...uh welcome along to my uh, my seminar today. It's uh, it's good to see so many of you hear. God is really, uh great. Thanks for taking time away from your youth groups to uh, to learn about, uh, using social media to uh, to promote your uh, punk rock band. Firstly, as I'm sure your uh, your pastors have told you, you need to respect all authority, especially when it's breaking the law it's sworn to, uh, uphold. We all remember the parable of uh, jesus-isn't jesus cool? let's have an, uh, amen. Amen. Uh, yeah. Jesus- Jesus went into the temple, and saw the money lenders, and he uh, he changed his money in an orderly fashion, even thought the exchange rate was exhorbitant. isn't that right, pastor Tim? Uh yeah, everybody throw up your testify hands for pastor Tim. Uh yeah, so back to my course "I'm too retarded to shitpost my way to success on my own so I need help from a Christian satanist insurance salesman"...

I'm a full time shitposter now. I'm PM you my rates.

btw OP - here's an easier solution; tell your flatties not to be such noisy cunts and have them buy this: http://www.trademe.co.nz/gaming/playsta ... 967986.htm

ross has got an audience on NZMental now that think hes just hilarious

in fairness, he is funnier than he ever was here, but the audience is well, theres a lot of ex punkas and similar there, but also a lot of provincial boganry, you can guess which group is feeding him these:

Yup my loal requirements are being met by nzmetal.

I don't have a source for wondering what my 20s would have been like if they were filled with alcoholism and regret however. I'll hit you up if I need ya.

Why is xCaptainx doing sub-par Cancer posts circa 2002?

I was actually interested in how OP's situation unfolded. Oh well.

I'll save you some time. OP ain't going to do shit or get any compensation. Flatmates will still be dickheads and most probably cause another headache in OP's life.
