January 2006 - Let's Talk About Something Important

This deposition excerpt was submitted by Kristine Arlitt of San Antonio (Kristine practices with Christopher J. Weber).

The deposition was taken in Kerrville in the case of Castlecomb Homeowners Association v. Hexagon Honeycomb Corp. In response to Kristine's question regarding the terms in a Declaration of Restrictive Covenant burdening the Castlecomb subdivision in Kerrville, the deponent read directly from the declaration:

Q. (By Ms. Arlitt): Just tell the jury how it varies. I mean, it's a long thing to read.

A. It says ... It has to be permanently affixed to piers or a foundation, have any wheels or axles in the delivery removed, skirted - which mobile homes are skirted or enclosed - shall have a roof pitch of three-twelfths or greater; and 5, shall meet or exceed the standards imposed by blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah which is all the codes so that he can move those particular types of homes in.

Q. Now, the "blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah," those are the laws of the State of Texas; is that correct?

Mr. Maguire: Objection, form.

A. Yeah.

Kristine notes: "So much for giving laws of the State of Texas and accompanying regulations much credit or respect!"
