Former Mayor Richard Oldham takes legal action against Quartzsite
A Notice of Claim was served upon the town yesterday afternoon, through it's CEO, Mayor Ed Foster by process server Duce Minor.. This is the prerequisite first step to a lawsuit over the destruction of Oldham's airstrip by Quartzsite Public Works employeees without a court order. The town will now have 90 days to pay Oldham $250,000 for diminuation of his land under the AZ Property Protection Act, or risk a full blown lawsuit they have no hope of winning. Oldham intends to sue the town and councilmembers both jointly and severally, according to the Notice. He reports filing two unanswered requests for the work order showing who authorized this warrantless action, but has received no response as of yet.
