Jim Raby /
Security Gate and Fence from Knoxville, TN. Jim came recommended by some family
members to install a metal roof and seamless guttering after we have damage
from a hail storm in 5/11. We paid Jim Raby Security Gate and Fence half
($5,000) upfront with the balance due when the job was finished, we asked for
proof of insurance (Liability and workmans comp as of 3/28/2011 TN requires
ALL construction company, no matter the size to have or work under someones
workers comp insurance) and were told he had it but did not have a copy with
him. He was TOLD it was a deal breaker that he HAD to provide proof of
insurance; his contract stated he had 3 million in coverage. He was going to start the installing the
metal roof the next week, then it was going to be the next week, then the next
week. When I started to push to get our money back, he said he had to go to
Austin, TX to see a brother that he had not seen in 5 years and was dying. 30
days after we did a contract with Jim his contract expired, I wrote one the
stated HE would be responsible for anyone or anything that got hurt or damaged
since he had STILL not given us a copy of any insurance, and in my contract it
stated that if he did not sign it we wanted our money back. He refused to sign
it and refused to return our money.
2011 we hired an Attorney to file for the return of our down payment against
Jim Raby (Knoxville, TN, Knox County 5th Sessions County Docket Number 1623H
with Civil Warrant issued Oct 12 2011 for Jim Raby doing business as Security Gate ). Jim refused to receive
his warren for the 11/14/11 court date. Then before the court date on 12/12/11
he called and left a voice mail for our attorney on the Friday before at 5:30pm
that he had a brother that died in Temple, TX and would not be in court on
Monday. Well it turns out the Jim was in fact in court on Monday and had been
calling our witness and telling OUR witness NOT to come to court (Im looking
at having Mr. Raby charged with witness tampering for that) and told the Judge
that his Attorney was sick and could not be in court. Four days before the
next court date his Attorney call our Attorney and said Jim would not be in
court on 1/23/12 because he had a brother die in Dallas, TX. I pressed our
Attorney to press his Attorney for a copy of the local newspaper obituary since
Jim has had three brothers die in three different cities in Texas in the past
seven months. Jim Attorney called our Attorney back and said well, it appears
the brother is not completely dead yet. My wife and I observed Jim driving
down Cedar Bluff Road two days later in his British flag wrapped Mini Cooper
with Guy Pride Hawaii Licenses Plates.
On Jan 23
2012 the State of Tennessee, County of Knox 5th Session Court Judge Andrew
Jackson the 6th found after less the two minutes of me being on the stand
testifying about Jim Raby lying about his ability to do the job, finding that
Security Gate has 3 different address with one address being the TDS telephone
company and the other being a abandon warehouse. The judge found Jim Raby
guilty of Tenn. Code Ann 47-18-101 intentional misrepresentation &
negligent misrepresentation. We were awarded under Tennessee law triple damages
($15,000 judgment). But now we have to try to collect. The company Security
Gate is NOT recorded at the Knox County Business tax office nor is it
incorporated in Jims name. On paper Security Gate belongs to someone named
Deloris Lowery. Do what you want dealing with Jim Raby, but my sister in-law
who also used him for what was going to be a 4 day job, that was 2 months LATE
getting started, it got started 8/11 as
of 2/29/2012 it is not finished. Jim also runs another business called Underground Fencing
