Type of case: Unlimited Professional Negligence Summary Judgment (Civil) 

John Smaha Esq, stole my business.  I went to Smaha for legal help and he helped himself to my business. As my lawyer he had me transfer my assets to him and we were suppose to be partners. He, along with his cronies, stole my business, defrauded me and kicked me out.

Beware of this self proclaimed "Professional." I understand he has done this before and right now is under investigation for ripping off another one of his clients.

Implied Impersonation

AUTHOR: Xxayrx LLC - ()

 John Smaha is a long-time lawyer and business associate and has brought this Ripoff Report to my attention.  The “report” seems to suggest or imply that it was filed by me or Xxayrx, a company which I own.  It was not.  I do not know the source of the “report”.  Neither I nor my company had anything to do with its filing.

Report filed by an imposter and convicted felon

AUTHOR: John L. Smaha - ()

 I am John L Smaha. I have been an attorney for over 30 years. My bar record can be found with the California State Bar at number 95855. It is unblemished.

The report that you are reading was not filed by the plaintiff in the referenced lawsuit. That matter involved a business dispute over a 20 year plus business relationship. No summary judgment was ever rendered.  In fact all claims of malpractice and fraud have long been dismissed. The case of the "cronies" has also long been dismissed.

More troubling the owner of XXAYRX(the plaintiff) did not file this report. As we still speak to each other to today I had him review it and  he indicated to me that he did not file it. 

I know for various reasons that the report was actually filed by an imposter convicted felon known by the name of Richard Rollo Norton(federal criminal case 07-cr-2260-h).  I know he filed it because he was unhappy about going to prison and that he still owes restitution of millions of dollars to his victims. He was unhappy with me because I was the trustee of an assignment for the benefit of creditors trust that was overseen by the San Diego Superior Court in case no GIC857652.  In that case all trust assets were fully accounted for and approved by court order.  During the course of the case I assisted the personal attorneys of the various victims to recover over $20,000,000 for their clients however even this did not compensate the victims in full. The case is now closed.
