Video Date:  9/9/14.  LAPA Vice President Robert Burns explains the pitfalls of serving as principal (owner)
 in merchandise offered for sale at auction, particularly when multiple
 owners are involved. Burns illustrates the high level of trust that's required for such
 situations by illustrating a lawsuit filed by JAH Enterprises d/b/a/ Henderson Auctions
 after things went haywire entailing the sale of a casino boat jointly owned by JAH Enterprises
 (which is itself owned by LALB Member Jeff Henderson) and Blake
 Everett, a former Henderson Auctions business partner.
Update:  10/13/14.  Thus far, service to Everett hasn't been able to be facilitated via
U. S. mail.  Hence, JAH filed this motion to hire a private process server to serve the Everetts.


Henderson Auctions vs. Lloyd Henderson et. al.

Video Date: 10/13/14.  LAPA Vice President Robert Burns elaborates upon
 this lawsuit of JAH (Henderson Auctions) v. Lloyd Henderson et. al.
in which JAH complains of new competition by Lloyd Henderson
 and an infringement upon trade marks, etc. in forming that competition.

The lawsuit cites a deliberate attempt to create confusion as to the identities of the
two companies (even to the extent of substantial duplication in the appearance
of the Henderson Auctions website vs. the Henderson and Henderson Auctioneers website).

Burns also briefly recaps ALL of the other outstanding lawsuits known to exist in
the Louisiana auction industry, including the JAH v. Everett et. al. lawsuit presented below
and those of Burns and/or Phillips v. LALB

is provided as a result of the upcoming trial of LA Dept. of Revenue v. JAH Enterprises

 at her home only 20 minutes after she attained a court award of
 $4,102.29 (plus court costs) in DeRidder, LA against
auctioneer Marlo Schmidt.  Ms. Story also relays that she
requested to address the LALB (by completing its official form to do so)
regarding the fact that Mr. Schmidt had steadfastly refused to
negotiate a settlement with her [in direct defiance of a directive
given to him by Board Member Darlene Jacobs-Levy (see video below)].
In response, Ms. Story relays that, on or around August 22, 2014, LALB
Executive Director Sandy Edmonds telephoned her and relayed that it
"would be a waste of your time."  Ms. Story relayed that Ms. Edmonds' response to her
 request prompted her to sue the LALB (CLICK HERE to track that lawsuit).
CLICK HERE to follow the entire ordeal Ms. Story endured entailing Schmidt & the LALB.
