Exhibit A hereto. The proofs of claim are attached hereto as Exhibit B. RELIEF REQUESTED 3. By this Omnibus Objection, the Debtors seek entry of an order, pursuant to

section 502(b) of the Bankruptcy Code and Bankruptcy Rules 3003 and 3007, disallowing in full or reducing the LVVWD Claims as set forth in Exhibit A. OBJECTION 4. The Debtors object to the LVVWD Claims listed on Exhibit A because the

LVVWD Claims are not supported by the Debtors books and records. LVVWD filed the following three separate claims in three different Debtor cases: 5. Rhodes Ranch Golf and Country Club (Case No. 09-14854-LBR), in the amount of $50,418.62, designated as Claim No. 24; Rhodes Design and Development Corporation (Case No. 09-14846-LBR), in the amount of $11,029.62, designated as Claim No. 138; and The Rhodes Companies, LLC (Case No. 09-14814-LBR), in the amount of $74,340.65, designated as Claim No. 72. On or about October 21 2009, the Debtors sent LVVWD a letter requesting it

withdraw two of its claims, and reduce the third. See Exhibit C. The Debtors requested that LVVWD withdraw claim number 24 based on the fact that the invoice attached to claim 24 (acct no. 7350542962-2) is a duplicate of an invoice already attached to Claim No. 72. In addition, the Debtors further requested that LVVWD withdraw claim number 138 because the invoice attached to claim 138 (acct no. 8714542962-4) is a duplicate of an invoice already attached to Claim No. 72. Lastly, with respect to claim number 72, the Debtors requested that LVVWD reduce their claim to the amount of $72.49, based on the Debtors books and records because portions of the claim have already been paid and other portions of the claim relate to nonDebtors. The Debtors set all this forth on an account number basis in the letter sent to LVVWD. See Exhibit C for details.

On or about November 4, 2009, counsel to LVVWD responded to Debtors letter

by telephone requesting an extension of time to respond to the Debtors letter, up to and including December 4, 2009. On December 8, 2009, Debtors counsel left a follow-up voicemail for LVVWDs counsel. As of the date of this filing, the Debtors have not received any additional response from LVVWD or their counsel. 7. Bankruptcy Code section 502 authorizes a party in interest to object to claims.

See 11 U.S.C. 502(a). Although a proper proof of claim is presumed valid under Bankruptcy Rule 3001(f), once an objection controverts the presumption, the creditor has the ultimate burden of persuasion as to the validity and amount of the claim. Ashford v. Consolidated Pioneer Mortg. (In re Consolidated Pioneer Mortg.), 178 B.R. 222, 226 (B.A.P. 9th Cir. 1995), affd, 91 F.3d 151 (9th Cir. 1996) (quoting In re Allegheny International, Inc., 954 F.2d 167, 173-74 (3d Cir. 1992)). The Bankruptcy Appellate Panel for the Ninth Circuit explained the shifting burdens of proof with respect to objection to proofs of claim as follows: The burden of proof for claims brought in the bankruptcy court under 11 U.S.C.A. 502(a) rests on different parties at different times. Initially, the claimant must allege facts sufficient to support the claim. If the averments in his filed claim meet this standard of sufficiency, it is prima facie valid. In other words, a claim that alleges facts sufficient to support a legal liability to the claimant satisfies the claimants initial obligation to go forward. . . . The burden of persuasion is always on the claimant. Id. (emphasis added). Following this decision, the District Court for the Northern District of California emphasized, unless the claimant has alleged facts sufficient to support a legal liability, the claim is not prima facie valid. In re Hongnisto, 293 B.R. 45, 50 (N.D. Cal. 2003) (quoting Consolidated Pioneer Mortg., 178 B.R. at 266) (holding that the claimants proof of claim failed to allege sufficient facts to support a legal liability and consequently disallowed the proof of claim); see Consolidated Pioneer Mortg., 178 B.R. at 227 (holding that because the

proof of claim did not allege sufficient facts to support the claim, the proof of claim was disallowed). 8. Based on the Debtors review of their books and records and the disputed

LVVWD Claims, the claimants have no valid legal justification for asserting the LVVWD Claims against the given Debtor as filed. As a result, the Debtors submit that the LVVWD Claims should be disallowed in their entirety or reduced as set forth in the Column marked Proposed Treatment/Disposition in Exhibit A by the Court CONCLUSION 9. The Debtors object to the allowance of the LVVWD Claims for the reasons stated

herein, and the Debtors hereby move this Court for an Order disallowing or reducing each of the LVVWD Claims as set forth in the column marked Proposed Treatment/Disposition in Exhibit A. NOTICE 10. Notice of this objection has been provided to (i) the Office of the United States

The Debtors submit that in light of the nature of the relief requested herein, no other or further notice is required. 11. Pursuant to Bankruptcy Rule 3007, the Debtors have provided all claimants

affected by the Omnibus Objection with at least thirty (30) days notice of the hearing on the Omnibus Objection. /// /// /// /// ///

Ms. Sherilyn A. Olsen, Esq. October 19, 2009 Page 2 filed against The Rhodes Companies, LLC. Therefore we request that you withdraw Claim No. 138. With respect to Claim No. 72 filed against the Rhodes Companies, LLC, the Debtors believe that the balance due under this claim is $72.49. The Debtors have reconciled the invoices attached to Claim No. 72 and provide the following information:
Account No. 1044542986-2 Amount Due Per Invoice 72.49 Status Debtors will pay Invoice is allegedly for a pre-petition pro rata amount, however, the pre-petition periods were previously paid in full by Check No. 7879 in the amount of $14,270.58 and Check No. 7998 in the amount of $8,257.26 (Please see invoices attached hereto showing prepetition amounts due) Invoice is allegedly for a pre-petition pro rata amount, however, the pre-petition periods were previously paid in full by Check No. 7922 in the amount of $81.75 and Check No. 7853 in the amount of $2,256.14 (Please see invoices attached hereto showing prepetition amounts due) This account belongs to Rhodes Ranch HOA a non-debtor entity This account belongs to Rhodes Ranch HOA a non-debtor entity This account belongs to Rhodes Ranch HOA a non-debtor entity This account is for the Rhodes Ranch Golf and Country Club however the services are for the period 03/01/09 03/31/09. The Rhodes Ranch Golf and Country Club is no longer owned by the Debtor. In December 2008, the Debtor sold the Golf Course to a non-Debtor affiliate called Rhodes Ranch Golf, Inc. Therefore, this is a non-debtor invoice

Based upon the above reconciliation, it appears that the Debtors are responsible for $72.49. Therefore, we respectfully request that you withdraw Claim No. 24 against Rhodes Ranch Golf an d Country Club, and Claim No. 138 against Rhodes Design and Development Corporation by signing and returning the enclosed Notice of Withdrawal of Claim
