Homeowners Association claims truck violates rules

A Central New York man is being sued by his homeowner’s association claiming his Ford pickup truck can’t be parked in his own driveway.

The Kimry Moor Homeowners Association filed a lawsuit against residents David and Arna Orlando in Onondaga County Supreme Court because they are parking their 2014 black Ford 150 pickup in their driveway at 511 Kimry Moor, just outside the village of Fayetteville.

The association is seeking an injunction to stop the couple from parking their pickup in the driveway of their home.

The association states that its rules limit parking in driveways only to “private, passenger-type, pleasure automobiles,” according to the lawsuit. The association owns all the driveways in the development.

Orlandos’ lawyers said in court papers that the Orlandos’ pickup is a “private, passenger-type, pleasure automobile” and therefore is in compliance with the rules. Orlando and his lawyer, Tom Cerio, said the pickup is registered with the state as a “passenger vehicle” and not as a commercial vehicle. And the Orlandos do not have commercial drivers’ licenses.

Since the story about the lawsuit first broke the Orlando’s have been deluged with calls and has been reported by national media. Tomorrow David Orlando and his attorney, Tom Cerio, will appear on “The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson” which airs at 2:o0 EST. Orlando and Cerio are expected to join the show around 2:30 pm.
