Re: Melody Boatner – Mark and Linda Conlee

Dear Steve:

Ms. Boatner has had major surface water problems since she bought her home. That’s because her lot is lower than the land around it.¹ That was true before my clients added dirt to level their lot. Before my client’s lot was leveled, it steeped more sharply towards Ms. Boatner’s property and sent more water her way.² Also, my clients built their new home deeper in the lot then the prior owner’s house, which results in roof water draining towards Mr. Boatner’s back year instead of towards her home.³ The old driveway described as a “berm” was man-made and apparently altered the natural flow of surface waters to Ms. Boatner’s benefit. Because it was man-made, my clients had the right to remove it They have plans to build a raised garden in the same general vicinity as the old driveway, which may similarly benefit Ms. Boatner.

Mark suggested to Ms. Boatner that she lay tile around the perimeter of her house. That would have been a simple,but effective remedy for Ms. Boatner, but she’s not done that. Mark and Linda attended a council meeting and convinced the city to dig a drainage ditch in front of their properties. Ms. Boatner stood to benefit from that proposal, but didn’t bother to attend the council meeting. She later complained that she has to maintain the drainage ditch that was installed as a result of my clients’ efforts.

Mark and Linda are trying to get along with Ms. Boatner. They will not, however, agree to a drainage ditch on their land. In addition to being unsightly, a ditch would be a maintenance problem and a liability concern. Ms. Boatner is, of course, free to do what she wants on her own land.

I think we can resolve this dispute if we all meet at the properties and discuss the options.

                                                                                      Very truly yours,

                                                                                                   Gregory A J

Completely false statement. A Review the transcripts and an email to Boatner from Steve Swan ESQ will show Conlee’s only witness testified Boatners property never received stormwater runoff from Conlee property. Water damage was caused by stormwater running from the city street which Boatner remedied before she repaired the water damage to her home when she purchased it in 1995.. Witnesses Randy Kirchner and Stuart Westermeyer were prepared to testify to this. Boatner’s attorney Steven Swan ESQ intentionally suppressed their testimony and affidavits from the court. Swam conspired to violate Boatners State and Federal right to enjoy her own property.
Expert witness on Boatners behalf Robert Dodds was prepared to testify that a berm and swale that has been in place for 10 years is considered existing and cannot be removed, Boatner’s attorney suppressed Dodds testimony
There is no reason Boatner should have to make any alterations to her property do to a neighbor’s illegal property redevelopment. That is not typical or acceptable by any reasonable standard. It would have been reasonable for the building official to do his duty and oversee compliance to State building laws. This redevelopment was not to code by review of blueprints.

5 This is so outrageous and false it is unbelievable. Any reasonable person can visually see the increased stormwater to Boatners property is a direct result of Conlee’s illegal property redevelopment. The Conlees never had a ditch install

According to my Dr. I am a pioneer in the physical effects toxic chemicals have in direct contact with skin according to my hero at University hospital in Ia City. I believe if it were not for this Dr. at the University of Iowa Hospitals and clinics the ongoing exposure to the chemicals unlawfully applied to my property would have taken my life. I was suffering to such a severe degree that I did not want to suffer another day. I consider it worse than cancer. I was completely unable to function. It was unbearable to wear clothes. With cancer the patient generally is given a timeline to expect to live. In this unprecedented case, no local Dr. had a clue as to how to treat my condition. There is no other case I can find in which a neighbor was allowed by local law enforcement to continue applying chemicals to the property owned by a neighbor at all. Moral law would keep a reasonable individual from doing anything to property that did not belong to them. In this case this neighbor was allowed and assisted by local law enforcement to trespass on my property. This is a violation of Federal trespassing law. Significant because my city police chief advised me that he did not want to make the trespasser mad and the county attorney advised me that he would decide who gets prosecuted in his county. Of course since trespassing is a criminal offense I could not file a complaint as a civil issue. This is the way local government officials violated my State and Federal rights for the following five years. When it was obvious that no law enforcement was going to make this neighbor comply with any law regarding his new illegal property redevelopment. When his illegal redevelopment was rejected from being recorded on the County plat map, he with full support of the local government officials determined the remedy to his situation was to acquire my property which would then give him enough property to support the oversized non compliant structures he had built with fraudulent building permits issued by the city building administrator. The damages I have suffered are tremendous. I continue to have skin eruption due to the extended exposure of chemicals unlawfully applied to my property. A civil court order citing my right to use my property as I wished was never a factor to detour this neighbors goal. He was determined to acquire my property no matter the cost. He offered me two out of court settlement that were ridiculous, this in itself is an admission of his guilt. I had never needed an attorney prior to this. I had a huge reality check, I beleive the evidence supports the attorney who represented me took this case on behalf of this neighbor. There is no attorney that could be this incompetent and pass the bar exam. I do not care who you are, nobody has the right to do anything to the property of another person. There is not statute of limitation, the law says "never" to be taken without just compensation. These are serious criminal offenses that fall within the guidelines of a Federal prosecutor to bring charges for public corruption.
