Hoehns Lakeview Farms

A battle is occurring in Henrico County Virginia between legacy property rights of Hoehns Lakeview Farms and expansion of the Islamic Center of Richmond (ICR). This battle is not about freedom to worship protected under the First Amendment or federal laws granting exemption waivers from local land zoning laws. Instead it is about abuse of the courts through lawfare to lay claim to property and property rights through adverse possession - civil disputes, harassment and intimidation.

Donations used to protect the property rights of Hoehns Lakeview Farms, founded as a Quaker farm in 1838.


Details of Civil Complaints: Filed in November of 2013, plaintiff Yunus Vohra who describes himself as a spokesperson for ICR filed a civil complaint which attempt to side-step requirements of VA Code 55-50.1 which requires a consensus agreement to merge ‘property rights’ of private road Hoehns into Vohra’s proposed residential project Hungary Road Village.

In January of 2014, Vohra filed a more extensive format commonly refer to as a SLAPP suit. A strategic lawsuit against public participation (SLAPP) is a lawsuit intended to censor, intimidate, and silence critics by burdening them with the cost of a legal defense until they abandon their criticism or opposition. Typically SLAPP plaintiffs do not expect to win the lawsuit; and, in fact, the plaintiff's goals are accomplished when a defendant succumbs to fear, intimidation, mounting legal costs or simple exhaustion and abandons the criticism (and/or ownership of his/her property/property rights).

Nevertheless, it is the testimony of Henrico County Commonwealth Attorney Shannon Taylor and others associated with the County, “the County is operating under a ‘sensitivity ruling’ RLUIPA which influences enforcement of local laws and regulations” that has influenced a jury to view ‘legacy property rights’ as secondary to Islamic entitlement.

In 2012 a plan of development (POD) was issued for development of ICR’s Mosque located at 8481 Hungary Road. This agreement was violated within one week; and to date, the County fails to enforce agreements which protect those who reside in Hoehns Lakeview Farms. Similarly, in 2014, a rezoning was approved for Vohra’s proposed Hungary Road Village. It also does not comply with state of Virginia code requirements which protect the rights of Hoehns Lakeview Farms residents. And, in fact, since 2011, multiple complaints of assault and property damage have been filed by residents.  All of which were ignored by those who have pledged to ‘protect and serve’ the public.

Vohra who brought legal complaints without benefit of insurable rights continues his lawfare, wage of legal assault against defendant Sylvia Hoehns Wright and her insurer.  As a response, Wright is soliciting support for pending federal level legislation HR 2304, Free Speech Act of 2015; and is also involved in establishing for the state of Virginia an antiSLAPP effort spear headed by Christopher Peace, member VA House of Delegates.  

Sylvia Hoehns Wright credits the legacy of a rural Virginia childhood and Quaker lifestyle belief - view self as caretaker, not owner of property – as the source of her commitment to being a present-day caretaker for her family's 7th generational properties.

Still, she and her family have been under siege since 2011.  As a result of this experience, Wright urges all to

1.            Selectively use rights to vote to ensure the election of people who value constitutional rights.

2.            Lobby for agency functions that monitor enforcement of local government plan of development agreements, proffers and/or compliance of VA Code requirements – there is presently such a function for those who violate ‘fair housing’ laws.

3.            Lobby for land use processes that require ‘clear title’ of properties prior to approval for land use development. 

4.            Ensure there is a ‘next level’ of law enforcement available when local structures fail to prevent ‘breaches of peace’  – no person should receive written notice from governmental representatives that he/she can defend his/her own rights.

5.            Become involved in supporting much needed antiSLAPP legislation which would enable the ability to resolve lawsuits intended to censor, intimidate, and silence critics by burdening them with the cost of a legal defense until they abandon their criticism or opposition.

Media Release – Wright Scoop Launches Book, Lawfare, American Property Rights versus Muslim Supremacy.

The Wright Scoop – Sylvia Hoehns Wright - launches book Lawfare, American Property Rights versus Muslim Supremacy.

“Many communities are stymied by Islamist cultural schemes in concert with political Left’s attacks on citizens who defend American traditions and constitutional principles,” says Karen Lugo, an attorney with extensive experience in First Amendment constitutional law. Such attacks are not about freedom to worship protected under the First Amendment or federal laws granting exemption waivers from local land zoning laws. It is about abuse of the courts through lawfare intended to create Muslim preserves through force majeure, harassment and intimidation.

Lawfare, American Property Rights versus Muslim Supremacy
Wright’s book - Lawfare, American Property Rights versus Muslim Supremacy - documents criminal and civil court proceedings more based on a political agenda; then, theology or laws and regulation. As observed by others:
“Protecting religious freedom does not mean permitting people to violate the law in the name of religious freedom. Religious freedom remains freedom to believe, but not a freedom to act in violation of facially neutral laws. For many years people defended racist laws as being required by their religion. But religion should not grant one the right to ignore the law. Jefferson advised us that if a neutral law required action that violated a person’s religious belief that person had to abide by the law. We are a nation of laws after all,” says Christopher Peace, delegate Hanover County for VA General Assembly.
“Any adverse decision reached by a jury trial is not a victory for freedom of religious practice. Instead, it is a victory for lawfare tactics by local Muslim leadership at the Islamic Center of Richmond who seek to create a Sharia compliant enclave at the cost of local residents in Hoehns Lakeview Farms,” says Jerry Gordon, author for New English Review.
“I challenge you to acquire an understanding: learn why a peaceful quiet life-style has changed in Sylvia’s beautiful part of an otherwise crazy world,” says Shu Bartholomew, radio host and producer.

Lawfare, living in fear, is a form of asymmetric warfare, consisting of using the legal system against a person/group, such as by damaging or delegitimizing them, tying up their time. The word is a portmanteau of the words law and warfare.

FILM PROJECT – Living in Fear, Lawfare! Many of you are aware of our struggle to survive an effort by the Islamic Center of Richmond to acquire legacy property located in Glen Allen VA. Through a series of court cases (law fare), intimidation, involvement of Henrico County VA (on the side of the Islamic Center), there is a battle brewing & so far, we are LOSING THE BATTLE. Our legacy family property is the site of a former Quaker farm that dates back to 1838 which includes property acquired through the Lincoln Homestead Act. The National Security Task Force of America has committed to do a film that spotlights our battle to preserve legacy property rights and stop Islamic Supremacy. PLEASE MAKE A CONTRIBUTION TO THE GO FUND ME PAGE. In the comments, note contribution to the $5,000 needed for this film; and if possible, add a little more to help offset ongoing legal expenses. The goal of this documentary is to highlight our struggle, and the 150 other cases around the nation that are similar. PLEASE FUND THIS PROJECT AND THANK YOU!

I wonder if you could have you homes designated a Quaker settlement? Perhaps that would stop the Muslems from encroaching on a Christian settlement. set your home up as a small Christian Church. That would put them squarely at odds with a Christian place of worship. A nightmare for them and he county.

This road right-of-way easement exist regardless of who owns the underlying land. So, since the easements that comprise private road Hoehns are deed "together with" the property of those who reside in Hoehns Lakeview Farms, the road itself belongs to those who live in the complex. Its use is restricted by deed and VA 'family subdivision' regulation/law which limits present-day use to 'immediate family'. It is the asset/liability, maintenance of residents and they can be held liable for those who trespass. This is why the road is posted and trespass can be enforced.

Some suggestions. ?Cheaper than legal battles? 1] A fence with spikes coming up out of the ground at the base of the fence. Set those spikes in cement so if they hit the fence with a car tire damage will result. ?And maybe a gate at your entrance with a key or wireless remote or access code? 2] Pigs. Begin to keep pigs at the entrance and in the field. I have no money. But hold you in prayer. EPH 6:12
