What can I say folks, he was a grifter in the exotic cheese biz down here and evidently remains the same in Nova Scotia as Slabbed literally trips on all the skeletons in the pasts of the girls at Trout Point Lodge. He remains a loser because he still doesn’t know how to properly serve his frivolous lawsuits:
At its most rudimentary, this case involves alleged damages resulting from the purchase of “diseased” dairy goats. Plaintiff has alleged causes of action based upon: (1) tort; (2) breach of contract; (3) civil fraud; and (4) breach of warranty.
Specifically, in August, 1994, Allen Bitter (herein “Bitter”), a dairy goat farmer in New York, received a call from Mr. Charles Leary (herein “Leary”) of Mt. Herman, Louisiana. Leary told Bitter that he was assisting plaintiff, Jeff Condalary, in es-tablishing a dairy goat herd and requested Bitter’s assistance in locating dairy goats.
After negotiations, Bitter agreed to provide be-tween fifty and fifty-five adult female dairy goats, three adult male dairy goats and two Maremma guard dogs. Plaintiff paid Bitter the amount due, $14,600, as was required by their agreement.
At the same time, plaintiff was negotiating with Linda Campbell, a Virginia resident, for the purchase of additional dairy goats. Campbell, Bitter and plaintiff agreed that Campbell would be responsible for the shipment of the goats. Plaintiff contends that the goats were unfit upon arrival in Louisiana.
Reportedly nothing is good enough for Leary of Trout Point infamy so he just goes straight to suing:
On March 10, 1995, Mr. Bitter received via certified mail return receipt requested, a letter dated March 6, 1995 from Deonne DuBarry’s law office, the Summons and Complaint in this action, and a Notice of Lawsuit and Request for Waiver of Service of Summons. The Request for Waiver of Service of Summons stated that it “is not a formal summons or notification from the court.” The Request further stated that if Mr. Bitter failed to return a signed waiver by March 26, 1995, plaintiff’s attorney “will take appropriate steps to effect formal service.” Bitter did not return a signed Request for Waiver of Service of Summons. No further service of any type was made upon Mr. Bitter.
On May 5, 1995, the Clerk of Court entered a default against Mr. Bitter and Ms. Campbell for failure to plead, answer or other wise defend this action.
Bitter contends that the entry of default must be set aside because service was improper. Bitter further contends that he lacks “minimum contacts” with Louisiana rendering this Court devoid of personal jurisdiction.
Stay tuned as disgruntled former employees of Trout Point Lodge are contacting Slabbed with info as Slabbed systematically solves the Mystery in Nova Scotia and its connections to the disgraced Aaron Broussard. I’d like to once again thank the good people at West Law for the occasional fair use of their documents.
