Bellevue Serial Squatter Attempts Another Protection Order

View at X


Friday morning, Bellevue landlord Jaskaran Singh says four Bellevue cops tried to serve another Temporary Protection Order against him.

Problem is, Singh is out of town and saw all this unfold from his mobile phone which is connected to cameras outside his house. Singh says he called the police department to find out what was going on. That’s when he learned serial squatter Sang Kim is behind this second attempt. Once again, King County Bar Association’s Housing Justice Project is helping Kim weaponize the legal system and stifle Singh’s free speech. Is this how taxpayer dollars should be used?

Every single elected official in Washington State should be concerned about what’s happening here. Who’s holding HJP accountable? Regardless, another protest is scheduled on Saturday at 11:30am outside the rental property. Organizers say the goal is to publicly shame and pressure Kim to leave. Singh is asking for even more people to attend this rally.

First Temporary Protection Order Dismissed

Earlier this week, a King County court commissioner dismissed the first Temporary Protection Order filed against Singh. It was an easy decision since Kim and an attorney with HJP showed up more than an hour late and missed the hearing.

Kim Making Threats Against Singh’s Children

Court documents also show Kim is the aggressor and allegedly making threats against Singh’s children. A text thread reveals Kim is basically saying he plans on filing a police report to ruin any chance of Singh’s kids getting into college. New low.

Singh Confronts Lawyers at Housing Justice Project

On Thursday, Singh finally confronted lawyers at HJP. But managing attorney Edmund Witter was not in and a man working the counter slammed the door on Singh and his family.
