(UPDATE: Turns out what happened is that Persinger filed a lawsuit against the coffee house after those “bathroom” allegations didn’t pan out. In response, the coffeehouse filed an anti-SLAPP action against him as part of their response, claiming that he was improperly retaliating against their protected activity of speaking out and going to the police. The judge agreed and threw out the case, and most likely sanctioned Persinger as well for his “SLAPP.”)
Got this message today. What the hell is going on down there in Magnolia Park, and why are the Burbank police apparently helping this woman out by withholding the “evidence” after the “investigation” into the matter has concluded?
And we’ve got another good question to ask, and which no one else is.
Where is this alleged “surveillance” camera located inside the shop — is it inside the actual bathroom itself? If so, that would explain why no one over there wants to let it out, including their friendly BPD. It would be instant invasion-of-privacy lawsuit time for anyone who’d ever used it.
It’s totally disgusting that Kerry Krull of ” Romancing The Bean” won the malice lawsuit over Ralph at Burbank Antiques.
Her lawyers hit Ralph’s attorney with the SLAPP suit just after the the B.P.D. was subpoena’d? The SLAPP suit froze all information pertaining to the case.
At that point NO ( CD AUDIO TAPE ) or any other information could be added into evidence!
The CD AUDIO tape that was full of lies from Kerry and her manager which were inadmissible because of the her SLAPP suit!!
In the audio CD provided by the BPD after being subpoena’d and recorded by officer ASHLEY JOHNSON and SGT. KENDICKS A.K.A.(KERRY’S COUSIN)?
On the taped interview with officer Ashley Johnson, Kerry stated that she believed Ralph put screws under all her tires behind the Bean to give her multiple flat tires. Then she said Ralph has screamed at her and her employees. Then coming down to her coffee cafe to use her bathroom and take “THE DUMP”!!!!
Also on the CD Kerry stated that Ralph came down to her cafe and asked for a glass of ice water and said he wanted to party with them?
Lastly, she accused him of explicit sexually oriented prank calls to her manager an many hang-up calls? wheres her caller ID?? to prove this OUTRAGEOUS LIE????
Everything KERRY told the officer was a BIG lie after lie after lie!!!!
No wonder the first words out of officer Ashley Johnson ‘s mouth to Ralph that was as recorded on the tape was…..
“I know you did it? Even though I haven’t seen the video tape yet!!!!
Ralph has never stepped foot inside the infamous coffee cafe! Ralph has never spoken to Kerry ( NOT ONE WORD)!!
Also a handful of merchants on” KERRY’S block “,too scared to speak up.
( Yes! Kerry has bulldozed her domain ) they have verbalized quietly and privately to him that they had hoped Ralph would win his case so that Kerry would essentially back off!! ONE guy (a merchant) on the block shook Ralph’s hand and said please get that bitch!!
However the lawsuit needed at least ( ONE WITNESS) to prove her vindictive and MALICE behavior! Even though there were several merchants who have experienced or witnessed her disgusting behavior & wrath, NONE were unwilling to step forward and risk their business. SO…..HE LOST!!!!
KERRY is such a ” DISGUSTING & DESPICABLE NO CONSCIENCE PATHOLOGICAL LIAR!”
One moral of this story is to ALWAYS get a change of court venue on any local legal matter. These area judges are way too friendly and familiar with the local status quo. In most cases you are not going to get a fair hearing.
Although a SLAPP or anti-SLAPP action wouldn’t involve getting into the detailed particulars of a dispute — it’s just a question of malicious reprisal or not — it does raise serious questions why a judge wouldn’t at least want to know if the original complaints on his (or her) part were justified.
