Dream Stone secretary/treasurer Ida Murphy (alias Eve Murphy) has filed a known fraudulent lien on the home of two former employees, Craig D. Buckley, and Pamela R. Reynolds. Dream Stone was sued in 2009 in Weld County District Court for having failed to pay the employees accrued wages due on termination of their employment.
Dream Stone Marble & Granite, through their criminally complicit attorney, Daniel T. [continued below]....
..... Goodwin, of Donelson, Ciancio, and Goodwin, P.C., had sworn simultaneously before both the Colorado Division of Labor, and the Weld County District Court that neither had jurisdiction over the former employee's accrued wage claim, because the matter was before the other.
A mere 16 hours before his scheduled deposition, former Dream Stone employee, Craig Buckley received Orders Re: Discovery from the Court stripping him of all relevant evidence necessary to prove his claim, as the Defendants had fraudulently managed to convince the Court that it had no jurisdiction. This fraudulent act was preceeded by months the Defendant's, their criminally complicit attorney, Daniel T. Goodwin, and Cheif Judge of the Weld County District Court, James Hartmann having admitted by both express and implied consent, that the matter of accrued wages was within the jurisdiction of the Court.
A default judgment in favor of Dream Stone, Inc. Ron Murphy, Scott Murphy, and Ida Murphy was entered, and an award of attorney's fees, in excess of $20,000.00 was granted.
Had Dream Stone, Inc. legitimately won their case, they would have been entitled to fees and expenses, and would have been entitled to seek compensation by lawful means, including seizure of non-exempt property, and garnishment of wages, etc. This, however, is not what they chose to do. In July 2010, Daniel T. Goodwin, on behalf of Dream Stone, Inc., Ron Murphy, Scott Murphy, and Ida Murphy filed a lien on Craig Buckley, and Pamela Reynolds' home. According to former Dream Stone General Manager Todd Coday, it has been Ida Murphy's "goal" since October 2008, to "destroy" Buckley and Reynolds, and specifically to cause the loss of their home.
According to Colorado Secretary of State, Scott Gessler, " A spurious lien is an alleged lien or claim of lien that:
is not provided for by a specific Colorado or federal statute or by a specific ordinance or charter of a home rule municipality;
Dream Stone's fraudulent lien is, in fact, expressly prohibited by Colorado Statute:
38-41-201. Homestead exemption.
Every homestead in the state of Colorado occupied as a home by the
owner thereof or his or her family shall be exempt from execution and
attachment arising from any debt, contract, or civil obligation not
exceeding in value the sum of forty-five thousand dollars in actual cash
value in excess of any liens or encumbrances on the homesteaded
property in existence at the time of any levy of execution thereon.
The words "arising from any debt, contract, or civil obligation" are
sufficiently broad and comprehensive to embrace any and all forms of
indebtedness, including judgments. Woodward v. People's Nat'l Bank, 2
Colo. App. 369, 31 P. 184 (1892).
Section does not rest upon equitable principles. In no way does this
section rest upon the principles of equity, nor in any way yield thereto.
McPhee v. O'Rourke, 10 Colo. 301, 15 P. 420 (1887); Helkey v. Ashley,
113 Colo. 175, 155 P.2d 143 (1945).
Colorado homestead exemption is self executing.
Exemption under this section attaches automatically upon occupancy of
real property as a home by the owner or the owner's family. University
Nat. Bank v. Harsh, 833 P.2d 846 (Colo. App. 1992).
Homestead exempt from judgment lien. This section provides that the
homestead shall be exempt from "execution and attachment", and if it is
exempt from execution, it must of necessity be exempt from the lien of
the judgment, as a judgment lien that cannot be enforced is of no avail.
Weare v. Johnson, 20 Colo. 363, 38 P. 374 (1984); Woodward v.
People's Nat'l Bank, 2 Colo. App. 369, 31 P. 184 (1892); Jones v. Olson,

As the fraudulent lien on Craig Buckley, and Pamela Reynolds' home is in excess of $20,000.00, Dream Stone, Inc., Ron Murphy, DScott Murphy, and Ida Murphy's actions constitute not only slander of title, fraud, perjury, and conspiracy, but also Class 3 Felony Theft:
(1) A person commits theft when he knowingly obtains or exercises control over anything of value of another without authorization, or by threat or deception, and:
(d) Demands any consideration to which he is not legally entitled as a condition of restoring the thing of value to the other person.
(2) Theft is:
(d) A class 3 felony if the value of the thing involved is twenty thousand dollars or more.
Dream Stone secretary/treasurer Ida Murphy has had homeowner/former employee Craig Buckley arrested for Harassment, for having demanded that the spurious lien be removed from his home.
