Mandamus!

Mandamus –

Wikipedia › wiki › Mandamus

Mandamus (“We command”) is a judicial remedy in the form of an order from a superior court, to any government subordinate court, corporation, or public authority—to do (or forbear from doing) some specific act which that body is obliged under law to do (or refrain from doing)—and which is in the nature of public duty…”

The attorneys will sort out the details. But think about HUD, enhanced preemption, local zoning, and a host of other possible applications to this under-utilized legal remedy.

We’ve been part of a quiet effort at setting the stage for what we will briefly pencil out.

Already underway, unveiling soon and through the end of this year – and likely well beyond – we see opportunities for manufactured housing to advance in many profitable ways.

Among them are proper strategic and tactical uses of legal remedies.  Some of what has been discussed with the legal minds already include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Multi-Billion Class Action.
  • Bad faith.
  • Tortious interference in a business relationship.
  • FOIA.
  • Mandamus.
  • False advertising.
  • Failure to perform.
  • Slander/defamation/liable. 
  • RICO.
  • Constitutional arguments.
  • More…

The attorneys will sort out the details. Some of the above could be done with contingency attorneys. Other will require a more traditional funding of the attorney/client relationship.

Some efforts can be enhanced in strategic legal alliances with other similarly-impacted and injured people, groups and organizations. 

Know it or not — you, many of our clients, readers, we, and others in manufactured housing are being harmed day-by-day.  It’s time to end that, isn’t it? To unshackle the potential of your business and our industry?

Disclosure. We’re not attorneys, and thus the legal remedies outlined here are as seen through the lens of a lay person. But my humble take on the early discussions with the “suits” – past and present – leads me to think that ground-breaking changes are possible.

Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve.” – Napoleon Hill.

Those profitable changes will come through a combination of:

·        Education. Internal (industry professionals) and external (to public officials, media and the public at large.

·        Lobbying/Engagement (advocacy, education)

·        Marketing

·        Pro-Industry Trade Media (MHLivingNews.com, MHProNews.com)

·        Mainstream Media Engagement.

·        Trade media and services expansion.

·        Legal action.

We will be looking for parties who are already in – or are poised to enter – manufactured housing. Forward thinkers, ready to step out and participate at various levels in these efforts.

We will also be looking for allies – impacted parties ready to participate, tired of the status quo and willing to do more than complain about it.

Picking the right test cases and parties to be involved will be important.

This is America. Land of the Free. Home of the Brave.

To the Victors Go the Reward$. To the losers goes the dregs.

My thanks to all who visit and support, starting with my amazing family, our fine team, and all those visible and invisible who make this and our sister platform possible.

Thanks too for our readers – for the words of encouragement, tips and insights – and for letting me share the extended teaser above.
