As many of you may be aware, this firm has been subject to an Internet defamation attack for years. This was explained in detail in an earlier post.
The Internet is not the only weapon used against us in their effort to punish me effective representation of clients. One of the other weapons used against me by Leonard Horowitz was a “nonconsensual common law lien. ” Mr. Horowitz filed that against all the property that Pual J. Sulla, Jr. personally owned, or ever owned before, on this island.
This lien, while having no basis in fact or law, created an encumbrance on the properties, even when own by innocent non-parties, and prevented or delayed the closing of escrow for many. After receiving several calls from affected landowners, the firm once again took legal action again Leonard Horowitz.
I am delighted to report that this matter recently came for hearing on summary judgment motion and the firm prevailed won, including an award of costs. While this may be a small win in a much bigger battle, it shows the legal process works and sometimes, works well against those who abuse it. They can be held accountable. If you or someone you know owns any of the 50+ properties affected by an invalid lien filed by Leonard Horowitz, please contact this office and let me know. The lien should be expunged soon!
Thank you again for taking the time to read this and for your support of the legal work our firm accomplishes for the people of Hawaii.
