Another Bad Judge, Shelley Kravitz

Posted on August 9, 2009


Judge Shelley KravitzFlorida Statute 83.49 (2) The landlord shall, within 30 days of receipt of advance rent or a security deposit, notify the tenant in writing of the manner in which the landlord is holding the advance rent or security deposit and the rate of interest, if any, which the tenant is to receive and the time of interest payments to the tenant. Such written notice shall:

(a) Be given in person or by mail to the tenant.

If the landlord fails to give the required notice within the 30-day period, he or she forfeits the right to impose a claim upon the security deposit.

This is very clear but Judge Shelly Kravitz decides that this law is no good even if the Florida Supreme Court says it is.

I read the laws from Chapter 83 of the Florida Statutes and 83.49 was the reason that I file suit in Small Claims Court on June 6, 2008. I went to court on July 1, 2009 after a year and half waiting to get my Security Deposit money back from my old ex-landlord, The 215 Building Corp.
After a year in court that should have been settled 11 months earlier was not. This Judge made a decision not to give me my Security Deposit Money back and there are no other laws according to ten other attorneys. The attorneys that I talked to say that there is no way that a judge should ever make this type of decision.

Now the question is did Judge Shelly Kravitz get paid off or is she that stupid? In either case she should be removed as a judge.
