1998- I invested $200,000 in a Restaurant-C- LLC
for 15% immediately the other two partners (who were close friends-- GP-A and GP-B) moved the funds to their other partnership
RES-B-LLC had each partner contributing $200,000 for 25% equity. In my case, RES-C-LLC, that part of the operating agreement
was deleted. No one else contributed any capital
- not what I expected. Initially I wanted to invest in RES-B-LLC. I was told by GP-B that RES-B-LLC was closed to investors.
2000- RES-A-LLC, which was formed by GP-B in 1996 goes into bankruptcy. GP-B who is worth $10M flees the country, transfers assets and files Bankruptcy in 2003 with $400,000 in credit card debt plus Millions in Personal Guarantees. GP-B removed from RES-C-LLC.
2003- GP-A sells stock to and adds GP-C to RES-C-LLC forces me out through Buy/Sell Agreement.
2004- GP-A and GP-C sell RES-C-LLC to landlord. Landlord stops paying on Furniture Fixture and Equiptment. Finance Company goes after me for personal guarantee.
2004-2007- Landlord hires GP-C and maybe GP-A to manage restaurant.
2006-- I filed a lawsuit for Breach of Fiduciary responsibility, Fraud in inducement of the contract
2007- GP-C buys restaurant back from Landlord. Restaurant never changes name throughout process.
2008-- I settled with GP-B who received a favorable ruling from the Judge. However the Judge's decision - which I should have appealed-- was based on perjury in the GP-B's
Notes-- GP-B failed to produce numerous documents asked for in discovery. GP-C deposition reveiled that 42 boxes existed in a storage locker. Documents there showed that previous statements made by GP-A and GP-B were perjury.
The "loan" to RES-B-LLC was repaid to RES-C-LLC from the profits from a different company owned by GP-A- which is money laundering. We found the tax statements of GP-A showing he declared an address in Florida to avoid state income tax from his home state of New York, we discovered notes written by GP-B on how to transfer GP-A's assets prior to filing bankruptcy.
