DECLARATION IN SUPPORT OF JUDICIAL NOTICE IN SUPPORT OF MOTION TO STRIKE


By Melody Gillespie
1.
I, Melody Gillespie, am a plaintiff in the above named case. This declaration is
made in support
Of thc
JUDICIAL NOTICE IN SUPPORT OF THE MOTION TO STRIKE.
2. 3. 4.
I, Melody Gillespie has direct person knowledge of the following matters of fact
and law.
Affiant is competent to testiSr if called upon, and willtestif,, if called upon,
of the following
matters: On or about November 29,2009, Plaintiffs and Defendant Hoffman attempte
d to reconcile differences and come to agreements to live together peacefully an
d
fulfill
the agreement made for
the purchase of tlie property known as 1831 North Lime Street, Porterville, Plai
ntiffs believed all parlies, which are the defendants and the Plaintiffs in the
above named case, had reached an l0
11
agreement mediated by the elders of the church with both parlies. The defendants
had led
Plaintiffs to believe that the contract could be fulfilled by Plaintiffs bearing
the costs of the split of the propefty, then in return, defendants would proper
ly ledger the account against the note
signed by Plaintiff Courtney Gillespie, and Plaintiffs would pay off the account
as agreed in the contract signed by both Courlney Gillespie and Nicklas Hoffina
n.

IJ

l4
l5
Immediately, within that same week, Plaintiffs went to the county, pulled up all
the documents on
the properly, and obtained forms to apply for the division of the property. Plai
ntiffs found out that the properly was under the Williamson Act and could not be
divided immediately, and
l6
certainly not without the help of Nickol Gerritsma, whose name is the only name
the Grant Deed
as trustee, on

t'l

.
On or about December
1
5
, 2009 , Plaintiffs sent a letter to Ms. Geritsma, requesting her help in
18
the division of the property. Plaintiff s sent the letter, ceftified, return rec
eipt, and received the
green receipt back, that Ms. Gerritsma had indeed received the letter. However,
there was no response from Ms. Gerritsma.
19

.
On or about January 4,2010, Plaintiffs sent out a second request for her assista
nce with the change in status of the property in order to make the property divi
sible.
21
8.
L)
On or about January J,2010, the, Nicklas Hoffman, in the name of WYSOCKI TRUST a
nd
Nickol Genitsma filed an unlawful detainer action in an attempt to evict Plainti
ffs from the
property known as l83l North Lime Street, Porterville.
9.
25
Defendants had hired a legal typing service to type, file and serve the complain
t for unlawful
detainer. The defendants in the above named case were without an attorney when t
he complaint
was filed, but had an attorney at the tirne of trial.

J
10' The legaltyping service typed and filed the unlawful detainer forms in case
number 138180
because Defendant Hoffman falsified the information in the complaint for the unl
awful detainer,
including what was typed onto the THREE DAY NOTICE. In the first complaint filed
on
January 1,2010, Plaintiffs admitted that the properly was bare land on the first
page item #3, and that Mr. Gillespie had been living on the property since Augu
st2004.in item
4

#4.
See
COMPLAINT-LTNLAWFUL DETAINER, incorporated herein by reference as if fully set f
orlh and request rnandatory judicial notice of such. This is contradictory to th
e allegation made in
cross-complaint filed into the above named couft on Novemeber 19,2010 attached h
ereto, and incorporated herein by reference as
6
if fully
set for1h. On page 3, Item #4,
lines

of
Defendant's cross-complaint, it states: "On or about Febru ary 2005, cross defen
dants Couftney
and Melody Gillespie, entered and took possession of approximately one and three
quafters acres

o
of the subject property and has since that time withheld possession of this occu
pied Property fro cross-complaintant"

ate:

"1831 NORTH LIME STREET #A," and the term (Bare Land) was removed so it would ap

h
Defendant's cross complaint, exhibit 5, incorporated herein by reference as if f
ully set forth,
t/

19
defendants in the above named case, have submitted the many of the same misstate
ments to the
couft in the cross complaint as was put forth in the unlawful detainer action of
PCL 138180.
Some of the same exhibits that were submitted to the court in PCL 138180, during
trial, have been attached to llefendants cross complaint.
Plaintiff s request judicial notice of the entire
20
cross-complaint submitted to the above named court.
14. The documents attached to Defendant's cross complaint are false, and altered
documents, with the intent to lead the coutl to believe that the one contract w
ith 2 pages and one attachment, is
2l

22
J
actually 2 separate documents of some kind of proposed agreernent that there may
be an option
-/.
for a purchase in the unknown future, and depending on that unknown, somehow, Pl
aintiffs
moved onto the property against the
24
25
will of the true owners. The true and
coruect copy of the
contract, which is 2 pages, in which Defendant Hoffman signs the second page, an
d has a one
page attachment showing the amoftization of the private financing is attached to
the Defendants
JUDICIAL NOTICE IN SUPPORT OF MOTION TO STRIKE 8

of PCL 138180 answer. At no time did the Plaintiffs of the unlawful detainer obj
ect to the attachments. Instead, Plaintiffs of PCL 138180 discussed the contract
many times in the trial transcript. See Defendant Gillespie's ANSWER-Unlawful D
etainer, incorporated herein by
reference as if fully set fofih, and request mandatory Judicial Notice of such,
and the attachments
to the answer. Melody Castillo and Melody Gillespie are the same. Mr. Hoffman kn
ew Melody
for several years prior to Melody's marriage to Mr. Gillespie. The intent of the
name differences
r.vas
to make it look like Melody and Courtney Gillespie were business partners rather
than
husband and wife, living in a home on the propefiy known as 183 The intent was t
o clairn that Defendants in PCL
13 81
I North Lime
street, Porler"ville.
80 had a storage salvage yard business on
the property. When the ruling of Hon. Glade Roper was in favor of the defendants
of PCL
138180, (the Plaintiffs in the above named case), Mr. Hoffman began sendingthe l
etters attached
to Plaintiffs' complaint for Injunction presented in the above named case incorp
orated herein by
reference as if fully set fofth, and request for mandatory judicial notice of su
ch,
10
15. On several occasions within the trialtranscript, Defendant Hoffman, who was
one of the plaintiffi
ll
12
in PCL
13
8180, stated that the agreement was a land sales agreement and Defendant Hoffman
di
not refer to it as an option to be exercised in the future at Hoffman's whim. Se

14- 26, Courtney Gillespie

testifies to the contract, without objection or being refuted by the other side,

notice of such. For
the testimony that was not
l7 l8 l9
20
Mr. Hoffman's in the trial transcript of PCL
I38
1
80, of the above
mention sites, the plaintiffs did not object, cross examine, contradict, or refu
te what was stated by
witnesses other than Mr. Hoffman. It was accepted as true by both sides. 16. Thi
s Declarant now requests comparison with the above referenced sites from the tri
al transcript
of PCL 138180 to Defendants' cross complaint in the above named case, attached h
ere to, and
incorporated by reference, as
2l
if fully
set forth, and request Mandatory Judicial notice
of such. On
page 3 of the cross complaint, item#4, item #5, page 6, item #11, page 8, item #
18, cross
complainants clearly contradict previous testimony in the trial of PCL 138180'
LJ
17. On page 4, item #6, where cross-complaintant states: "Under the Installment
Note (Exhibit C),
which had been prepared by cross-defendants and presented by cross-defendants, t
he crossdefendants had proposed paying $600.00 per month at seven (7)percent int
erest, and did pay the
25
sum of $4800, but failed to take any material action to obtain the requisite sub
-division approval
JUDICIAL NOTICE IN SUPPORT OF MOTION TO STRIKE - 9

by either the cross-complaintant or the County of Tulare which led to the tender
and delivery of a check for full refund of the said sum paid, voidance of the p
roffered lnstallment Note (Exhibit
C) and terrnination of the negotiation for sale" which completely contradicts pr
evious testimony
given by both Mr. Hoffinan and Mr. Gillespie in PCL 138180, 18. On page 26,line
1-11 of the trial transcript, Mr. Gillespie states, under oath: "Q. Did you beli
eve that you were signing a unilateral contract that could be discarded by one s
ide at
will?
A. No,
I
did not.
Q.
Did you fully believe that when the contract said that once you made a payment
that the private transfer of property rights would be transferred to you as a tr
ustee? was his agreement" He wrote that
A.
That
up. I didn't write that
and put that language in there. He wrote
it and signed
it."
This testimony was never refuted by the other side. The plaintiffs did not
object, cross examine on his statement, or contradict his statement. 19. On page
44,line 20-26, of the trial transcript, Mr. Hoffman states under oath: "At that
time
gave Mr. Gillespie a check for the
10
I
full amount that he had paid for the eight months at $600 and
told him because we don't have an agreement on how the property is supposed to b
e split, that we
can't go through with
ll
t2
13
it.

So I attempted to return all of the payments. It was atthat time that he


said he wanted to go to the mediation that we agreed upon and I told him to go a
head and anange
it." Mr. Hoffman
t4
testifies under oath that he offered to pay Mr. Gillespie back for only eight
months, when Mr. Gillespie had paid for a full year of payments, plus Mr. Hoffma
n's electric
bill
for the Hoffman household and Hoffman's radio station, and all of the work devel
oping the
l5
property. Mr. Hoffman testifies that Mr. Gillespie opted for mediation. See Mr.
Gillespie's
testimony on pages 2lthrough page26 of TrialTranscript of PCL 138180.
l6
I1
20. On page 2 of the Defendant's cross-complaint, line 12-19, Defendant states:
"And is entitled to
possession of all real property and improvements thereon located in the County o
f Tulare, State ol
l8
19
California commonly known as 1831 North Lime street, Porterville, California. .
. " In the
PCL138l80 Trial Transcript, on page 23line 18-26,page24line 1-26, Page25line 1-2
5 Mr.
Gillespie testifies to the coutl under oath of all the work he has done to impro
ve the properly, approximately $30,000 (thirfy thousand) dollars of work improvi
ng the property and building the
21
houses that
Mr. Hoffman and his family now occupy. Mr. Hoffman has never compensated mr.
Gillespie for all the work he has done. Mr. Hoffman nor anyone of WYSOCKI TRUST
ever
refuted Mr. Gillespie's testimony, never cross-examined his testimony about his
work, or
z.) )A
contradicted what Mr. Gillespie had to say. His testimony was accepted as true b
y both sides.
This Declarant can attest that Mr. Gillespie was indeed telling the truth. Neith
er Mr. Hoffman

nor anyone from WYSOCKI TRUST has ever compensated Mr. Gillespie for his work an
d his
expense in irnproving or developing the land, but have reap the benefit thereof.
The failure
of
JUDICIAL NOTICE IN SUPPORT OF MOTION TO STRIKE 10

compensation is unjust enrichment and peonage. The statement made on Page


2,line
12 thru 16
of the Defendant's cross-complaint is false and misleading. Also, on page 4,Item
#6, line 12-25,
cross complaintant is careful about the wording used, and states: "and that cros
s-defendants
would not have to pay any cash money as a down payment..." This is worded this w
ay to
purposely mislead the court. lt would be presumed that Mr. Gillespie supplied th
irty thousand
dollars of work and improvements to the property that the crossplaintant has fai
led to acknowledge. Mr. Gillespie is not the one who has defaulted on the agreem
ent, Mr. Hoffman,
and Ms. Gerritsma have defaulted, and failed to perform their
duty. Item #6 on page 4 and Item
#1 on page 2 are false and misleading statements.
21
. On page 5 Item 6 continued, cross-complaintant states: "At no time mentioned h
erein
has any
land sales contract agreement been accepted by cross-complaintant". This is a fa
lse and
misleading statement contradicted by previous testimony. See #12 of this declara
tion,
incorporated herein by reference as
10
iffully
set forth.
22.Item #18 restates what is in item #6. Item #6 continues: "There has been no r
ecording of any
land sales agreement wit the office of the Tulare County Recorder, nor has there
been any change
ll
l2
IJ
in the real propefty tax status with the office of the Tulare Counry Assessor, n
or has any "Deed of Trust" as contemplated by the offer "Installment Note Secure
d by Deed of Trust" (Exhibit C)
ever has been prepared or executed or delivered or accepted or recorded by any p
arlies ofthis
t4 t5

action." This is a misleading statement according to the contract signed by Mr.


Gillespie and Mr.
Hoffman, as trustee of WYSOCKI TRUST. See exhibits attached to ANSWER-UNLAWFUL
DETAINER, incorporated herein by reference as if fully set forth, and request ma
ndatory judicial
l6
notice
of.
The first 2 sentences ofthe sales contract state: "Private transfer ofpropeffy r
ights
\l
l8 t9
within the trust. Acceptance of the first payment verifies this transfer of prop
erty rights to
Courtney Gillespie" (rnisspelled in contract) and paragraph 3 states: "This is a
private
document", and paragraph 4 states: "I hereby accept the above terms and position
of trustee
the H.M. Wysocki Trust." The contract is privately recorded with the Community C
hurch
of
of
Kaweah. Mr. Gillespie is also a trustee of WYSOCKI TRUST, according to the contr
act, and
21

11 12 there is two reasons. Essential parties of the case are missing and 13 14
the other one is the fact that the Unlawful Detainer 15 UD-100 is not a proper a
ction because -it's a land 16 contract that's never been disputed, and there was
no
moti on
17 18
rental contract
agreement on the pleadings.
The UD-100 is for rental of structures. 19 There was never any structure. There
is no rent
20
21
22 23 24 25 26
contract, there is no structure, it's bare land. There is no action for bare lan
d, and we were tenants in common, not landlord tenants. And, common tenancy come
s under djfferent rules, they don't come under the unlawful detainer action. Thj
s is an improper action.

checks. we had no because he lives at the same property and receives mail at the

from the property. Now, he sord our water shares and he kept the
proceeds. He sold the $60,000 interest in the property

()
The trial in this case was heard by the Court March 23,2010. Defendants moved fo
r judgment on the pleadings and for dismissal for failure to include an indispen
sabfe party. Both sides presented oral and documentary evidence and the matter w
as submitted. Defendants noted that the minute order of February 23,2010 was in
error in stating that George Mason was present, since he had died prior to that
time, and in stating that the matterwas continued so that "defendant could hire
an attorney." In fact, the matter was continued for Plaintiff to obtain an attor
ney since a trust may not appear in propria persona through one of the trustees.
Defendants' motions are denied.

The facts are muddy at best. None of the witnesses fully explained the relations
hip between the parties or the nature of the agreemeni, if any, by which Defenda
nts have possession of the subject property. -Some negotiations obviously occurr
ed and apparently the parties felt at one time that they had entered into an agr
eement for Defendants to purchase the property. Each side felt the other had bre
ached the agreement. lt was evident from all testimony that there was no agreeme
nt of any kind by which Defendants are tenants of the property as renters. Altho
ugh the complaint alleges an oral agreement for Defendants io parf a "motorhome"
on the prope8, no evidence supported the allegation. There being no rental agre
ement, the Three-Day Notice served by plaintiff on Defendants was a nullity. No
evidence was presented to support a claim of waste, nuisance or unlawful purpose
. No evidence was presented io support the allegations made in the Three-Day Not
ice to euit. Judgment is entered for Defendants, and Plaintiff is not entitled t
o any recovery. Defendants are entitled to costs but because they did not know t
he costs at the time of the trial rnust submit a memorandum of costs and formalj
udgment consistent this
ruling.

Gillespie, entered and took possession of approximately one and three quarters (
I-314) acres of the subject Property and has since that time withheld possession
of this occupied Properfy from cross-complainant. This occupancy was initiated

these two documents. cross-complainant, Nickol D. Gerritsma, likewise never
signed either ofthese two documents.
6.
on or about January 10, 2006, wysocki Trust co-trustee, Nicklas Hoffrnan, after

l0
back to cross-defendant Courtney Gillespie and informed said cross-defendant tha
t the ongoing negotiations for the contemplated sales agreement were

The terms that existed in the negotiation prior to, and at, this time o

proximately ten (10) acres owned by cross-complainant and that
cross-defendants would not have to pay any cash money as a down payment

(Exhibit c), which had been prepared by cross-defendants and presented by
cross-defendants, the cross-defendants had proposed paying $600.00 per month at
2l

seven (7) percent interest, and did pay the sum of $4,800.00, but failed to take
an
material action to obtain the requisite sub-division approval by either the
cross-complainant or the County of Tulare which led to the tender and delivery o
a check
for full refund of the said sum paid, voidance of the proffered Installment
