Mezzacappa's Argument For a New Trial

I've spent a lot of time since April Fool's Day, dealing with cRaZy lawsuits and appeals filed by Tumultuous Tricia Mezzacappa. Her April Fool's day suit was eventually dismissed because she refused to pay the filing fee, even after the court denied her attempt to have taxpayers subsidize her private vendetta. She's re-filed the complaint, but still hasn't paid the filing fee in the matter that was dismissed.

You can guess what's going to happen there.

In my defamation case against her, where a $67,140 verdict in my favor is now worth $67,890, she filed Post Trial Motions. She also filed an appeal, which was quashed by the Superior Court.

Her Post Trial Motions are a trip into Bizzaro world. She never filed a Brief. At oral argument last week, Judge Michael Koury said the only legitimate issue that she has not waived is her claim that she was never notified of the trial. He directed us both to file briefs.

Mezzacappa did so on Monday. She attached a copy of the Supreme Court's suspension of my law license. That'll show me.

She argues she was never notified of the non jury trial in March, even though a certified mail notice was sent to her, and returned "unclaimed." Snow storms disrupted her mail for an entire week in February, says she, and she only got limited mail for several weeks after because the postman slipped and fell on his ass when trying to deliver her mail.

She supposedly apologized, something I find very hard to believe. She then goes on to say that she positioned a chair at the edge of her porch, and duct-taped a make-shift mailbox, so her mailman could deliver to her without falling on his ass.

Then she fell on her ass.

Mezzacappa decided to place mats all over her porch, and shoveled not only her own property, but several adjacent properties as well, just to be safe.

And she took pictures.

Then two more people fell on their ass.

Though she tells the judge that she regularly receives certified mail, the post office "failed to make delivery, failed to leave pink slips, etc."

I see.

Interestingly, she never subpoenaed her mailman to back her up in court.

Maybe he fell on his ass.

Well, I did call the post office that delivers her mail. I learned they were there every day, even during the worst of the snow storms. But what about certified mail? I was told all I had to do was look at the numbers on the envelopes, feed them into USPS.com, and I'd learn whether delivery was attempted. They're called tracking numbers, and Mezzacappa probably should have thought about that before inventing her ass-falling story.

Guess what?

The certified mail notice of her December trial was delivered to her residence on November 27, 2013. She never bothered to get it, and the mail was returned "unclaimed."

The certified mail notice of her March trial was delivered to her residence on February 12, 2014. Like the previous notice, she never bothered to pick it up, and the notice was returned "unclaimed".

Mezzacappa basically attempted to mislead the court. While she can claim that the wind blew her notices away, or that I slipped in there and stole it without falling on my ass, it's pretty clear that she was being deceptive on the one issue that mattered to the court. She would have been better off claiming that the dog ate it.

Attorney Richard Orloski filed our Brief yesterday, and pointed all this out, minus the ass-falling. I can't imagine that Judge Koury is going to be too happy to learn that Mezzacappa tried to shnooker him. Unsworn false statements to authorities and all that. While you never know what is going to happen in a courtroom, she appears to be in bad shape, and may face other consequences for her attempt to mislead the Court.

In the meantime, she's persuaded Larry Otter to enter his appearance in the case where I'm suing her. But she filed the brief under her own name.

He must be on stand by.

Did someone mention Otter? The river otter is on the move this time of year. A refresher might be helpful. Please take heed. They're crafty and determined, especially during mating season.

2. Sprainting.

• River otter feces, commonly referred to as spraint by otter researchers, is enormously important in otter communication. Spraint is a visual and olfactory indicator of an otter's presence. Otters produce small amounts of spraint several times a day, depositing it in conspicuous designated areas and spraying it with scent.

Odd that the only complaint about non-delivery of mail is from MezzacRaZy. Everyone else got their mail in West Easton, or surely MezzacRAZY would have made a blog blaming you or the borough for conspiring with the Postmaster.
We can only hope this crazy biatch realises that her lies will always be exposed.

Rumors are that according to staff in the courthouse, she "never accepts her mail." My interpretation of the comment was she often doesn't accept items mailed from the court, rain or snow or shine. You should be able to confirm this fairly easily.

It sounds like "ass" was mentioned a lot in her brief.

Mezzaluna continues to attempt to appeal, and when you dutifully respond to her pitiful attempts, she blames you for "continuing to harass her". If she would just face the music and pay the fine for having been found to libel you, she can stop harassing YOU. Pursuing judgment is not harassment. What is it this whacko does not understand?

She can use her evidence box to pack her belongings in when she leaves her house.

Guess she won't get your judgment reduced to $1 if her lawsuit is trash in the can. Her brief filed Monday must have been true garbage, if you were able to file a response in one day. The otter should have taken the extra day (it was due Tuesday - perhaps he was expecting a flood?) to put on finishing touches.

Yes, Bernie - that USPS tracking information, by just plugging in the number, is great. And it lasts several months. I used that once myself, in a quasi-legal situation.

Ah - I missed your last sentence. This pile of doo-doo submitted in her brief was done by her and her alone. That's poor form when your house is on the line (or your mother's).

Now we can understand some of the crap she posts on her battering ram of a "blog". She posted several pictures on and around February 14 of how high the snow was piled on drudge street. That was her excuse being crafted, for use later.

The Court was never shnookered. She just tried to shnooker them, and you may be absolutely right about the court knowing before about these tracking numbers. It was something new for me.

"Rumors are that according to staff in the courthouse, she "never accepts her mail." My interpretation of the comment was she often doesn't accept items mailed from the court, rain or snow or shine. You should be able to confirm this fairly easily."

I have confirmed that she's ignored other pieces of certified mail in other matters, but thought our case was strong enough to avoid reaching outside the record.

Bernie O'Hare said...

Mezzacappa did not use the word "ass" in her post trial motion. She did mention all those people falling, including herself. I used the word "ass" for humor.

"Guess she won't get your judgment reduced to $1 if her lawsuit is trash in the can. Her brief filed Monday must have been true garbage, if you were able to file a response in one day."

It was pathetic. Now mind you, the judge said he wanted the question of notice of the trial briefed. She responds by attaching the 1985 or 1986 Supreme Court ruling of my law license suspension.

She also goes on to complain about the service of the amended complaint, not notice of the trial. It apparently was deposited on her porch in a plain envelope with no postage. Though this has sometimes happened to all of us, she immediately assumed mischief was afoot.

She concluded that Att'y Orloski or I must have snuck onto her porch and put it there ourselves. Right. Like I'm going to walk a-not the porch of a person who has posted death fantasies about putting hollow point bullets thru my skull.

Though she was served, she was deeply offended at what she believes was an attempt to avoid paying postage and going out and sneaking on her porch. She refused to answer the complaint for this reason,and eventually, it resulted in a judgment against her.

The certified mail, containing notice of the March trial, was delivered to her house on Febuary 12, according to the Postal Service. There was a major snowstorm but it did not begin until the next day, February 13. The timing of the storm doesn't support her ridiculous claims.

This is priceless. With all the legal messes she is involved with, you would think she would be more meticulous about following the cases (like a lawyer would do). She scoffs at lawyers, but they serve a very important function. Like knowing what requires a response and when LOL.

I checked the Mezzacappa blog and found this interesting tidbit. The West Easton solicitor mailed Mezzacappa a letter dated February 17, 2014 concerning parking on Ridge Street during a declared snow emergency. Guess what? The postman delivered the letter and Mezzacappa actually admits receiving it. She published a copy of the letter on her blog along with a nasty reply, of course.

I've sued her once and won. She has sued me repeatedly and has lost at every turn. She has also assailed the judicial system over West Easton and even interjected herself in the criminal arena. I know who the court is sick of, and it's not both of us.

Nonsense? I hardly think a $67,000 verdict that included punitive damages is indicative of nonsense. Judge Koury took it seriously.

Thanks 4:50 Anon.

Mezzacappa has been threatening me with a lawsuit for months. She is smarter than that because she knows I kept everything she has ever written and have documentation using now deleted blog entries that show her to be "Doug Camaro," among other names she has used and a few she is still using.
Civil court is different than criminal court. My employer would still testify to her calling my place of work with false accusations about me. A civil case would be an easy win, but I'd have to get in line behind O'Hare in order to collect.
The reference she makes to the bank in her comment above is regarding a bankruptcy I incurred more than 20 years ago. It was cleared long ago and she had to have paid a background check company to get that information. Information she placed on her blog at one point, in the form of a picture of the bankruptcy report.
It shows just how desperate she is to find dirt on me when none exists.
While she thinks my past bankruptcy is an embarrassment to me, I have no hesitation in telling people about it and the fact that I was able to rebuild a great credit score and recover financially.
I've run into many people over the years facing bankruptcy who think their world has come to an end. I put myself out there as an example of what can come when you stay out of debt in the future.
I now own a home in what would be a great community if we didn't have a malcontent like Mezzacappa amongst us.
When O'Hare takes her house I'll pay for his parade and the band.

Matt, it kills me that she taunts you over a bankruptcy, but neglects to mention that she filed herself. You have an effective and informative blog, and that is another reason for her hate. A judge actually relied on concerns you raised in scheduling a hearing on her poverty petition. That's a pretty impressive indication of credibility. Mezzacappa counters that by posting the screeds of a mentally il state prison inmate.

I was driving and thinking about the contradictions of the CrAZY woman.

She brags about "KOing" an attorney over an absurd $1.83 RTK matter, yet gets her ass kicked for $67K+ by avoiding and not bothering to show for a libel case. Currently, she is bragging about *filing* a libel case against Bernie (which may have been dismissed), yet she is still representing herself in the case in which she got her ass kicked (even though she allegedly has a lawyer). Anyone can *file* a lawsuit - she should know that by now. It has as much significance as Viagra to a corpse.

What the f*#$ is this woman using for brains? She blames Bernie, the ET and probably West Easton for making her unemployable, but she has brought all this on herself (beginning with?) by targeting Bernie in the Gracedale matter and continuing to shoot her mouth and keyboard off right and left. She made herself unemployable. Google her name, and you get back a shit convention. Hitching her wagon to a convict doesn't help. Amazing. They broke the mold when they made her, which is a damned good thing.

Sorry for the duplicate, Bernie. It told me I had mis-typed the ant-robot text, but I had not.

"I think the courts are getting sick of both of you. Enough is enough."

This was obviously typed by a CrAZY supporter, and maybe the woman herself. The court hasn't gotten sick of Bernie - if you read the judges' (plural) decisions, you will see that they are doing their jobs, and in the process, Bernie in on the precipice collecting the damages he is owed.

The court and court staff are very likely sick of the woman who libeled Bernie and called him (and continues to) a pedophile. But judging by Koury's recent actions, he is giving her enough rope to hang herself, even though it takes more of the court's time. He doesn't want a weakness that may result in a reversal.

@ 8:46
I'm just a resident of West Easton, a small, independent borough that borders Easton, Wilson, and Palmer.

The only reason I ever get mentioned is because Mezzacappa has added me to her long list of enemies, due to my website and that I occasionally show that she is missing a few shingles from her roof, or that she doesn't tell the truth.

Basically, I'm nobody important, except that some cRaZy realizes nobody reads her blog, so she comments on Bernie's blog.

"Hang in there Trish. these guys are losers"

How are you defining "loser"? If it is by someone who files lawsuit after lawsuit that is dismissed, someone who loses a libel suit, someone who pays off their house so it is at risk of being lost in said lawsuit, someone who causes their town to spend precious resources on defending ridiculous lawsuits, then "Trish" as you refer to her is a LOSER.

What makes you believe anyone here is "angry"? I don't see anyone expressing that emotion. Assuming facts not in evidence is dangerous, just like playing a lawyer in a court of law.

I suppose a person who misspells "histories" as "history's" may not know the definition of "angry".
