On February 14, 2011, I filed a Complaint against UDR, Inc (NYSE:UDR) with the United States Securities & Exchange Comission, Division of Enforcement. I should have done this long ago but today is as good a day as any other. See Confirmation of my complaint at

I will not be sharing my complaint on my blog because I don’t want UDR to have the opportunity to cover-up any more fraud than they already have. But the complaint contains evidence of:

1. Posting, publication or dissemination of false information.

2. False or misleading statements about a company (including false or misleading SEC reports or financial statement.

3. Insider trading and fraud.

4. Theft or misappropriation of funds or securities.

5. Manipulation of a security price or volume.

6. Vexatious, malicious, and improper litigation.

7. Computer hacking and intrusion.

Despite the fact that UDR seized all my property with the intent to destroy my evidence, keep me helpless, homeless, incarcerated, and impoverished, I’m still standing and ready to knock it out of the park.

My evidence is safe and secure and the promise I made to California UDR tenants back in 2009 is still true today … I will stand up for you and help you to get reimbursement for all the illegal liquidated damages, late fees, hold harmless clauses, loss of income, fees, fines, and ruined credit.

In case you’re new to this cause … here are the causes of action I have maintained and have included in my evidence to the Securities & Exchange Commission for investigation:

If you are current or past California tenant of UDR and can answer “yes” to any of the following questions, you have a right to financial restitution against landlord/REIT, UDR, Inc.,(NYSE:UDR):

1. Did you pay an early lease termination fee?

2. Did you pay a late fee?

3. Did you pay utilities via a ratio utility billing system (RUBS)?

4. Were you evicted because you violated one of the terms of the UDR Residential Lease Agreement?

5. Were you or one of your guests injured on a UDR property?

6. Did UDR refuse to return your security deposit?

7. Did UDR contract with you using a name other than the legal name of the apartment complex?

8. Did you experience health and safety concerns in a UDR apartment, such as mold, rats, cockroaches, water damage, faulty electricity, lack of heat or hot water, hazardous conditions, preventable crime, lack of security, etc?

If you are a tenant and wish to participate, please contact me at This is free and you will not be named in the Complaint nor will you be required to appear in Court, unless you choose to do so.


(1) UDR Charges “Early Lease Termination Liquidated Damages” Penalties in Violation of California Law

(2) UDR Charges Late Fees That Are Overstated Contrary To Recent California Case Law and Rulings Thereon

(3) UDR Intentionally Contracts with Tenants Using False Names to Obtain & Sustain a Legal Advantage Over Its Tenants Resulting In Significantly Diminished Tenant-Based Litigation
