At last! My appeal of the City of Riviera Beach’s arrest and destruction of my floating residential structure was argued before the United States Supreme Court on Monday October 1, 2012.
After a nightmarish 3 ½ year climb through the Southern Federal District Court and the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, I reached the summit on Monday October 1. Sitting in the United States Supreme Court chambers when my case was called for oral argument, the first of the Court’s 2012 term, I felt a remarkable sense of peace and calmness. The dog fight between the members of the Riviera Beach City council a.k.a. the cesspool of political corruption, and I was finally laid out for all to see. The City taxpayers could understand what their $600,000 in legal bills to both silence me and destroy my floating had brought — simply nothing but a free junket to Washington, D.C. for the Mayor, the City Council and their cronies.
The local and national media have done a great job laying out the facts of my case and, more importantly, its far reaching national implications. Some of these stories can be found at my new website, www.fanelozman.com, designed by Chaz Stevens, a member of the Riviera Beach Recall Them All Team and a fellow corruption fighter.
An opinion from the United States Supreme Court is expected sometime between January and June 2012. Until that time, my legal team and I are cautiously optimistic and will have much more to say once the Court rules. Stay tuned here or at my website for the latest developments.
