    Mitt Romney Being Sued For Racketeering In Federal Court
    December 30, 2013 | Filed under: Corporate America,Politics,Scandals,Social Justice | Posted by: Ann Werner

    One of the most ignored stories in the mainstream media will surely be coming to a television screen near you once the court proceedings commence. That lawsuit is none other than racketeering charges leveled against one Willard “Mitt” Romney and his co-defendants in Haas v. Romney.

    Filed on October 18 in Los Angeles, CA, in an ironic twist of fate it was decided on November 6, the one-year anniversary of Romney’s loss to Barack Obama, that the lawsuit could go forward.

    eToys executive Steven “Laser” Haas and his company, Collateral Logistics, Inc., was the court appointed fiduciary charged with overseeing the liquidation of eToys. Haas filed the suit after discovering multiple frauds while in the process of liquidating the company. In his affidavit to the Securities and Exchange Commission dated August 3, 2012, Haas charges, among other things, that he was offered $850,00 by Bain Capital to keep quiet about irregularities he uncovered.


    He is suing the defendants for $100 million in an effort to recoup the losses incurred by him and the other victims of the alleged fraud.

    Several steps are necessary as the lawsuit goes forward. In a lengthy and sorely in need of an edit article written by Haas for the Daily Kos, he lists the procedural necessities:

    Summons granted.
    Request for a Court Order to have U.S. Marshals serve the summons.
    First amended complaint Part 1. Part 2. Part 3.
    New case order.
    Haas’s preliminary RICO Case statement.
    Haas notes that the Court denied his request for the U.S. Marshal’s Office to serve the summons on legal grounds, but that notwithstanding, the case will go forward. It is up to Haas to find the means to have the summons served to the parties involved by February 16. He is gleeful at the prospect.

    There are allegations of murder and mayhem in addition to the breaking of federal racketeering laws.

    The case number is 2:13-cv-07738 and will be tried in the Los Angeles Division of the Federal District Court, located on Spring Street in downtown Los Angeles.

    Stay tuned.
    This should become very interesting.

      Where did you get that, from reading the article?

        If a Democrat were charged with racketeering I don't think you'd post a thread about it. Someone equally partisan and boring like Dinodoc would.

            I'm calling bullshit on this

            Also the election was over a year ago. You do know that, right? Unfortunately for America, your guy won, and to make matters worse, you still haven't stopped posting threads as if he hadn't yet.

              Why is it not surprising that fun ascribes some sort of credibility to the story?

                MrFun assumes that every claim brought forward against Evil Big Business by a plaintiffs lawyer is legit, because lawsuits are never frivolous. They are heroically shifting money from people who produce things of value to people too stupid to avoid dumping extremely hot coffee on their dicks.

                  Is it called "charged" when its a civil suit?

                    And Republicans keep posting as if they never lost the presidential election.

                        Nor interesting. I took three tries to get through the paragraph of specific alleged misdeeds. Now regret the time spent.

                              Easy there, Tex. Remember, MrFun isn't wrong because he's gay. He's wrong because he thinks Romney--a man who manages to be astonishingly boring despite having 50% more money than God--is now suddenly interesting, a year after becoming politically irrelevant, because he got involved in some arcane legal dispute that may or may not even be a real case.

                              OOH, UNSPECIFIED FINANCIAL IMPROPRIETIES INVOLVING AN OBSCURE TOY COMPANY. THAT IS SO FASCINATING TELL US MORE YOU INSIGHTFUL HUMAN BEING.
