My name is Hollynd Hoskins, Esq.
and I have donated my services PRO BONO
to proudly defend the "Mayor of Pickleball
" against the City of Denver's Park & Rec #Goofed-Up Felony Prosecution
. If you haven't heard about this case, your head has been submerged in pickle juice as it has garnered International headlines: See MEDIA TIMELINE.
Arslan Guney - The Mayor of Pickleball - is a 71-year-old upstanding citizen, volunteer, neighbor, husband, father, grandfather and a friend to everyone he meets. He is a retired engineer who actually worked for Vlasic Pickles before his love of the game. Mr. Guney was lending a helping hand as a devoted volunteer at his local Denver recreation center when he made an honest pickleball #goof-up that got him indefinitely banned from all Denver parks/rec centers and landed him in jail facing felony criminal charges.
On May 11, 2022, in Denver District Court, the #Mayor of Pickleball and the City of Denver reached a Settlement Agreement after mediation requiring Mr. Guney to write an apology letter and pay one-half of the City's estimate to repair the gym floor in the amount of $4,672.29. In exchange - the City has agreed to reinstate the Mayor of Pickleball's Denver Parks and Rec Membership and recommend that all criminal charges are dismissed.
Was this a #Pickleball Shake Down?!
