BOOTMAN GETTING SUED FOR $12,500

MARIETTA - After his car was immobilized at a parking lot near Marietta Square that's becoming well known for booting vehicles, attorney John Steakley filed suit.

Filed April 1 in the State Court of Cobb County against Bret Alan Tillman and Atlantic Coast Contracting, LLC, Steakley is requesting a judgment of $125, attorney fees and punitive damages of $12,500 from Tillman's booting service for holding his car ransom to unlawfully extort money, the suit claims.

  2. Why no activity since almost a year ago???

    I just got hit in Atlanta by one of those extortionists from Empire Parking Services.

    Whatever became of John Steakley's suit against Marietta? I'd like to know the outcome of the case because I'd like to go after those EPS jerks myself.

  9. The fitness tips for motivation we've been discussing can be very powerful if you use them. The second option is to use headphones as you probably did at the gym in the past. Emotion linked to a definite objective is a strong mixture.

  15. Put it someplace where you cannot miss it if you tried.

    Skiing and snowboarding are strenuous sports which demand a lot of endurance, so your usual set of ten to fifteen reps
    really isn''. Avoid burnout by mixing up your exercises so
    that you will stay interested in doing them.

    at the top followed by green vegetables and

  17. Or maybe you look at it from a monetary standpoint and decide that
    Guy Ritchie and Madonna divorce was worse because they were married
    so long and have children and there is a lot of money involved.
    Who does not want to know what is happening in our favorite celebrity''.
    As a consequence it can be contended the media is directing many persons
    astray moving away from what should be its aim of presenting discerning news and analytic thinking of
    pressing topics for this celebrity frippery.

  18. Howdy, I believe your blog might be having internet browser compatibility issues.
    When I take a look at your website in Safari,
    it looks fine however, if opening in Internet Explorer, it's got some overlapping issues. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Besides that, excellent site!

  20. I'm amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that's equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt,
    you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something too few people are speaking intelligently
    about. I'm very happy I found this during my hunt for something regarding this.

Alasdair Baxter, Nottingham Discusses Clampers in His Area:

"From what I have seen most clampers come from the fringes of the criminal classes. They are of the same ilk as those who come to your door offering to tarmac the drive, demand a huge price and then drive you to your bank to get cash to pay them with.

Why does England and Wales not get in line with Scotland where private clamping is totally illegal."

"Fred" from www.LegalBanter.com :

SOURCE: http://www.legalbanter.co.uk/uk-legal-moderated-legal-topics/24038-illegal-wheel-clamping-legal-recourse.html

"The present legal position of clampers is a scandal and amounts to barely legal extortion in many cases. There is absolutely no excuse for failing to bring in a system of licensing that will regulate them.

We have all heard the horror stories, up to and including the deliberate setting up of tempting-looking sites to entrap the unwary. At up to £300 per victim the costs are easy to recoup.

I recently heard a case in court where the driver of a clamper truck was seen by the police to clamp a vehicle, whereupon they checked him over. It turns out that he has no licence, and his truck is uninsured. He then tried to give the officers false details, and only adjusted his attitude when they handcuffed him and put him in the police vehicle. He then failed to turn up to court, and I issued a warrant for his arrest.

The Government needs to find time for a short Bill bringing in licensing of clampers, with a proper code of practice. Perhaps a private member will oblige?"

"My point has nothing to do whether clamping is legal - it obviously is. What has happened though is that some clamping firms are in the extortion business rather than that of parking control.

In my area a car was towed away within four minutes of being left and the owner was told that it would cost him £385 to get his car (which was in an adjacent street) back.

Clampers have threatened and intimidated old and vulnerable people. All I am asking is that clampers are properly licensed, checked for criminal backgrounds, and that their behaviour be subject to a code of practice.

My story about the unlicensed and uninsured clamper who then tried to get arsy with the police was to illustrate what some of the clampers are like. They should be controlled."

Krissie Labanauskas "Car-Boot Racket; Old Navy Chicago, 60290"

"No Savings Here!"

"...Had a terrible experience here. Parked with intention of using coupon at Old Navy but had to use the restroom before shopping so ran across street to Starbucks....On way to shop at Old Navy, saw boot on my car! Store managers claim their hands are tied and cannot do anything regarding their customers being booted.

Car next to me was booted as well, when they had already shopped at Old Navy, one person was still in Old Navy at time of boot, and three others ran to Starbucks for a drink.

All in all, I paid $115 to remove boot...terrible experience, did not use coupon or shop at store after being rudely dismissed by manager.

No discretion to help out customers regarding boots sounds like a bunch of b*** s*** OR terrible corporate management/policy. Either way, avoid this store and certainly avoid the lot. Global Parking Management Inc. supposedly runs the lot.
