Adolfo Camarillo - Legal Battles Over Camarillo Ranch House

Legal Battles Over Camarillo Ranch House

In 1891 Martina Camarillo had deeded the ranch to her sons Adolfo and Juan. Following her death her daughters, who had only been given five dollars each in the will, challenged the will and the deed of the ranch. The daughters also claimed that their brothers had deceived their mother and that Juan had confessed his guilt to one of the sisters and paid her 8,500 dollars. Juan however, testified that his sisters were trying to blackmail him and send him to jail for an "infamous crime." Eventually Adolfo Camarillo was granted control over the ranch.

Famous quotes containing the words house, legal and/or battles:

    You take my house when you do take the prop
    That doth sustain my house; you take my life
    When you do take the means whereby I live.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The trouble with Eichmann was precisely that so many were like him, and that the many were neither perverted nor sadistic, that they were, and still are, terribly and terrifyingly normal. From the viewpoint of our legal institutions and of our moral standards of judgment, this normality was much more terrifying than all the atrocities put together.
    Hannah Arendt (1906–1975)

    Elections and politics in this country correspond with battles and war in other times and countries. Whatever of departing evils remains is sure to show itself last in the excitement of political contests.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)
