BREAKING NEWS: Friedman Seeks To Gag Arons; Cites ASD-Biz Forum And PatrickPretty.com Blog In Court Filing

UPDATED 11:26 P.M. EDT (U.S.A.) Dallas attorney Larry Friedman is asking a Dallas judge to issue a temporary restraining order against Florida resident Jack Arons.

An exhibit included in the filing includes content from the ASD-Biz Forum, PatrickPretty.com, the Dallas Morning News and WCTV-TV, a Florida television station. Separately, Friedman is attempting by subpoena to get ning.com to provide him information on the identities of posters at the forum.

ning.com hosts the ASD-Biz forum.

Friedman sued Arons last month, accusing him of slander and libel. All in all, today’s filing, including the exhibit, took up 135 pages.

In the filing Friedman said a previous restraining order against Arons had lapsed and that settlement negotiations with Arons had broken down “due to [Arons’] unwillingness to mediate in good faith.

“[Arons] continues to post on the Internet regarding Plaintiff despite representing to the mediator that he would not do so while the parties were trying to reach a settlement,” Friedman said in the filing.

Among the content included in the exhibit was an April 9 column in this Blog, along with Comments from readers. Also included was an April 11 column, along with reader Comments, including a Comment from Guenther in which he threatened to send an email to the ASD Members Business Association (ASDMBA) Trust database that suggested we were a member of ASD and “possibly an ASD winner!!!”

We were not members of ASD. Nor were we members of ASDMBA.

Also included in the exhibit was a copy of a March 28 column in this Blog, along with reader Comments, including Comments from Guenther. The exhibit also incuded a copy of a March 19 column in this Blog that reproduced an October 2008 letter from Friedman to Guenther, warning Guenther that the ASD probe was an active criminal investigation and to stop threatening people.

The exhibit also includes page after page of postings from the ASD-Biz forum, including posts made as recently as today by forum members. Some of the Comments made on this Blog cited in the exhibit also were made today.

Friedman claims in the filing that his reputation will be irreparably harmed if Arons is not restrained. Among other things, the filing seeks to restrain Arons from “encouraging or duping ASDMBA investors to file false complaints or disseminate false facts to state agencies or other entities.”

A hearing on the application for a new restraining order is set April 17.

  1. false facts

    Aren’t these mutually exclusive?

  2. It’s nt the false facts they should be worried about as much as the true facts, those will really ruin his reputation.

  3. What amuses me is that Friedman, in his letter to Arons two months back, said this, ACCORDING TO BOB GUENTHER:

    **************QUOTE***************

    Fourth, the ASDMBA was our only client

    **************UNQUOTE**************

    Was this “high profile” law firm actually in such dire financial straits as to only have the single client for their entire staff? Or was Bob putting words in Larry’s mouth?

  4. How about posting JUST FACTS

    I did not post ANYTHING for almost a week while I sent you multiple confidential emails, to test you and see if you are journalists or just Internet Marketers.. You failed the journalism test and then you post some rediculous article that you find newsworthy??

    I have a traffic ticket in Phoenix!!! And a appearance for making a phone call to CME corporate counsel, violating a order that was dismissed by the court 2 MONTHS AGO.. You call this NEWS????

    How about reporting on Steve Renner (ALIAS NAME), a ANDY B disciple and ASD knockoff who is stealing money from people all over the USA with AdPacs or now he has changed the name to:

    http://inetglobal.inetglobal.com/signup.html

    How about reporting on another scam, Joe Shoop and Rayda Roundy (Former ASD Moderator) Joe S, who was in the Judge Collyer’s courtroom everyday along with our DC lawyer, then went out and told every ASD member what a great job ASD’s lawyer did and Andy couldn’t lose, complete different rendition than our lawyer, now forms another ripoff and ASD knockoff,

    https://adviewglobal.com/

    Then you take the space to print a article that has half truths, no substance, has no bearing on the ASDMBA and a article on a subject, CME and MMOGULS, that you have absolutely no factual information about, nor do you know what is happening with the company and it’s founder and co-founder or defrauded investors..

    But when did factual information really bother you??

    Once again, are you a “For Profit Company”?

    Do you have a pro-ASD agenda, and are you influenced by the Port Charlotte anmd Detroit ASD group.. You know who I mean, right??

    FOR THE RECORD…. I make no threats, just promises… Report the TRUTH or suffer the consequences.. Why would you have a problem with that???

  5. What Larry is saying with that statement is the “members of the trust” were not ever clients of his, only the trust. That’s a true statement and something I have tried a lot to stress. Larry, legally, has no obligation to any one member, just to them as a group within the trust.

    What I want to know is how come Bob, if he’s not lying, was able to secure refunds from some big dollar Panda clients and not pool those funds to all the members of the Panda MBA at least. I think those payments will be “clawed back” and if they’re not, they should be. If Panda files for bankruptcy the trustee will surely go after them as preferential payments. Sadly, I think Clarence has just washed his hands of Panda and is going to let it die a quiet death by abandonment. Panda members maybe should file suit against Panda to see if those payments can be brought back to all the members, it’s just not right that those people got all their money back…

  6. “due to [Arons’] unwillingness to mediate in good faith
    “[Arons] continues to post on the Internet regarding Plaintiff despite representing to the mediator that he would not do so while the parties were trying to reach a settlement,” Friedman said in the filing.

    It is more like Larry was unwilling to mediate. I had set aside 4 hours on the day of mediation to mediate and Larry who was in his car on the way to another meeting spent all of 15 minutes on the mediation. He also continued to load me down with paperwork during the so called mediation. So as is the case Larry is lying again and is making it sound like I am at fault and not him.

  7. It is still beyond me why a lawyer of Larry Friedman’s apparent high profile should be making such a public fuss about something his buddy Bob Guenther let get totally out of hand, with his knowledge and without trying to do anything to stop him.

    (One letter to him asking him not to threaten people etc which was not acted on further when the behaviour complained about didnt stop, does not count as a serious attempt to stop Bob)

    Larry doesnt seem to understand that he cannot silence the whole internet and the whole world. ASD was an internet advertising company. The majority of the people who participated and became the victims did so because they used the internet and are accustomed to communicate using that medium. THAT is the nature of the internet. You have to be careful what you promise people on open telephone calls (which many of us listened to using our computers). You have to be careful who you threaten and who you “call out” in public calls, mails and forums. This information is also retained.

    Why doesnt he go after information posted by people outside the US? It is just as easily read and much to the point, why doesnt he go after Bob Guenther who is responsible for all the problems that he is currently experiencing?

  8. Well, NOW I have heard everything. Bob of the Multiple Personalities and Multiple Felonies was testing Patrick’s ethics. The Unholy MPD Trio of Bob, Robert, and Maria must be using Patrick’s subscribers and readers to try out an insanity defense for his upcoming Arizona felony hearings, Nothing else would explain why he would post a comment on THIS BLOG telling Patrick: “I sent you multiple confidential emails, to test you and see if you are journalists or just Internet Marketers.”

    Following that line of thinking, someone might be tempted to go cause a ruckus somewhere and tell the cops he was just testing their emergency response preparedness. But then again, when comments are posted by Bob that he wishes later to disavow, it’s a hacker that posted it.

    Kind of funny that “Wilma” couldn’t even redact “her” login information in all the spots it appeared in the 135 page filing. Hopefully the filing was electronic and no trees were wasted.

    If Jack gets Bob in a deposition, the first question should be what are all the aliases he uses to post.

  10. I wonder if Bob knows how much entertainment we get out of making fun of him

  11. Gregg:

    You are wrong about the trust was Larry’s only client as in Bob’s own statement in this blog he said that the Trust was not a legal trust and that it was an association made up of members therefore Larry represents the members. In the original court papers Larry calls them investors which now one must ask who has the securities license and what were they investing in?

  13. It would be great to actually know what you say is the TRUTH. From one minute to the next the story continues to change. When you are caught in a lie you immediately change the subject and then caught again and it becomes a rant about how everyone is an idiot except you who most have come to realize is a lunatic who has no qualms about threatening everyone including a six year old.

    When you were using me as your punching bag and continued to spill forth all kinds of half truths concerning me or my family it was perfectly alright. But, now you are the center of attention and all the lies have finally caught up to you and the real Bob Guenther is being shown for what you really are an ex felon,liar, crook, con man everything then becomes off limits.

    Well bud you are now learning what it is like and I hope that everyone that reads this pours it on, finds every dirty detail and shouts it from every forum and Blog on the net. You are not above the law nor are your friends which you and them will soon find out in a Federal Court. Be sure and bring with you all your Multi-Personalities for I am sure that a Federal Judge would be glad to meet them.

    You who once thought you could control the internet is now the laughing stock of that which you hoped to make your fortune from. In just a few hours those 1500 members of a non-existent Trust (Your words not mine) will get an eye opener and once again realize that they have been made victims again from one of their own a so called victim of Andy. You were never a victim and more than likely you were one of those “WINNERS” that you refer to the promoters. The ASDMBA TRUST (oops not a trust) was for one purpose only and that was to repay your friends that you convinced to get into Andy’s Scheme. The so called Friends that probably would have strung you up from the nearest light pole had you not given them back their money. I believe you referred to them as your Black Ops Team.
