Years ago, when I sued the City, I appeared before Judge Joe Vespa. When I presented a GPS as to who owned the property where I incurred damage to my car, Judge Joe Vespa grabbed the material before I could speak and said he would make a decision. The next day I lost the case.
In my first appearance, Vespa asked me to go back and correct my complaint. I said the incident happened on Lake Street. I had to amend my complaint that it "happened on the right-a-way" bordering Lake Street.
Judge Joe Vespa was at one time City Attorney.
