In July 2000 the Janet Napolitano's State appointed receiver named Lawrence J. Warfield who is an employee of Janet Napolitano came into our home while we were out of the country attending to our other business.
We were told there would be no problems during the time we were out of the country and nothing to worry about since the receiver came into our home and seized computers- business and personal files in June 2000.
We listened to our attorneys, Ed Novak and Darrow Sol at the time Streich Lang and believed they would handle the matter appropriately and our rights would be preserved.
We later found out they handed our retainer to the State appointed receiver, did not give us proper legal advise during this time and just abandoned us since we could not pay them $50,000. Streich Lang relinquised out retainer of $77,000. We later found out they could have petitioned the courts for legal fees and such. Ed Novak and Darrow Sol never gave us information on the receivership orders and we did not even see a copy until late October 2000 to early November 2000.
We were not given this information by the State of Arizona or the State appointed receiver or his agents at any time until late October or November 2000.
When Janet Napolitano's State appointed receiver did come into our home in July 2000 he seized all property in our home and at two separate offices and left no inventory. NO INVENOTY AT ALL!
We did not receive any inventory from Janet Napolitano's State appointed receiver for 4 months and when we finally did it was missing hundreds of thousands of dollars of jewelry and assets that were seized and can be proved due to witnesses and investors in our company.
We had pledged all our personal assets and art collection to the investors of Safari Media inc as liquidation was to occur in just 9 days after the state appointed receiver seized everything.
Our home was placed in forfeiture and so were our personal vehicles. The State appointed receiver said all funds were tainted and seized it all. Like I said there was no inventory of anything was taken by the State appointed receiver.
When we returned our house was gutted.
Now it has been impossible to gather any accounting from Janet Napolitano's State appointed receiver.
The State appointed receiver has only done one accounting and that was in late 2000. Due to pressure Janet Napolitano's state appointed receiver has now done another accounting that encompassess 2 years. Janet Napolitano's state appointed receiver says he has only taken in 1.3 million, but proceeded to spend 1.1 million on himself and his agents. This still leaves $209,000 and it looks like none of it will be going to the investors. The receiver has spent 84% of all money brought in and given nothing to the investors.
The state appointed receiver however has paid him and his lawyers over $600,000...nothing to the investors of Safari. Now the total has gone up to 1.1 million.
Many witnesses have said our assets have been sold or seen at auctions, or various retail establishments. None of this was entered or documented in the courts or on paper.
The State appointed receiver was even driving my wife's Mercedes over a year after it was taken from us..he received a ticket with this car on New Years Eve 2002. My Land Cruiser is believed to have been driven by Stan Tadlock from the ACC for a couple of months before its sale at auction.
Janet Napolitano's State appointed receiver also told all investors our estate was worth only 2.1 million to $154,000 and did not put Safari Media Inc. in bankruptcy protection...allowing Safari to incur millions in interest on an Amex Corporate Credit Card. We and investor witnesses still have proof the whole estate is worth at least 25 million.
Others have been arrested and found guilty of wrong doing in this case and a summary judgment was just found against us without any sort of discovery from the State or their appointed receiver.
Moira McCarthy, Janet Napolitano's counsel and assistant attorney general, had received documentation and withheld it from the court to allegedly make sure the summary judgment would be in her favor by Judge Burke. Judge Burke decided the 22 million summary judgment without any consideration and when we finally refiled all documents Judge Burke denied our Rule 56 (f) motion and maintained his tainted judgment. We have witnesses and proof we filled all documents and that Moira McCarthy had received all this documentation. We are appealing the matter.
We have had a total of three different seizures where all our files and computers were taken. Many of these computers and files contained our defense as we can prove through counsel.
Janet Napolitano's state appointed receiver no longer converses with investors of Safari and even let the web site www.safari-receivership go down for a month in the end of July 2002.
One can also see that Janet Napolitano's state appointed receiver's website www.safari-receivership.com court documents have not been updated since October 2000 and the last letter to the investors was in January 2001.
This is not preserving and protecting assets for the investors. This is not being a receiver.
Janet Napolitano's State and Janet Napolitano's counsel Moira McCarthy, assistant attorney general, refuse to give discovery and we are going to have to have them compelled by the courts. We have documentation of this as well.
I see where Mrs. Napolitano does not take responsibility for her employees or their actions at time and I was wondering if you as governor would be any different? I feel a governor of a State should be responsible and accountable for actions of their staff. Janet Napolitano is making sure we are being held accountable while I feel she does not do the same thing for her employees and agents.
I am a very political and tenacious individual and would like to know that all politicians have not been compromised.
