PowerCADD Bullpen

Postby Alfred Scott » Fri Jan 11, 2019 10:00 am

About ten years ago, Matt Arnold had an idea: to collect useful suggestions and posts from this forum and put them on a website. I had a website for our Rosegill farm, a beautiful waterfront property on the Rappahannock river in Virginia that had obvious potential as a development.

So we created the PowerCADD Bullpen at http://www.rosegill.com and it grew to have a lot of useful things in it including a library of drawing files plus a lot more articles and comments. When we put the property up for sale we shut down the Bullpen but the web pages were all still there, but without a link published on the home page.

We ended up with two of the best developers you could imagine but we had to go through zoning (which makes divorce feel like a cookies-and-tea social event), then litigation from locals who feared change and hated development. It was a brutal fight and we ended up having the case dismissed after a motion for sanctions against the oldest and largest Washington law firm. It was a scathing document, and every lawyer who read it said there was no question but the firm was going to be sanctioned. A partner from the firm actually lied to the court about expert witnesses they would call (he had not even talked to them on the telephone!). The case was dismissed with prejudice (which means it can’t be appealed) and the law firm fired the partner on the spot. He can never practice law again, poor thing!

I will be eliminating obviously dated stuff but you may find many things of interest there.
