Arons Blames Friedman For Mediation Failure

Florida resident Jack Arons blamed Dallas attorney Larry Friedman for a breakdown in lawsuit-settlement negotiations, saying Friedman did not take the negotiations seriously.

In court filings in which Friedman is seeking a new temporary restraining order against Arons that would prohibit Arons from communicating with reporters and other third parties about the case, Friedman said talks collapsed because Arons didn’t negotiate in good faith.

A previous restraining order against Arons expired.

Friedman’s is not telling the truth, Arons said.

“It is more like Larry was unwilling to mediate,” Arons said in a Blog Comment here. “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,” Arons said.

Friedman sued Arons last month in Dallas for slander and libel, in a case that sprouted from Friedman’s representation of the ASD Members Business Association (ASDMBA) Trust.

The Trust was formed by member contributions to protect their legal interests in the AdSurfDaily Ponzi scheme case.  Some ASDMBA members have complained about the management of the Trust by Bob Guenther, its de facto head.

Guenther, they say, has not provided transparent accounting that detailed how the Trust spent money from contributors. Friedman is the Trust’s attorney. Guenther, a convicted felon, introduced Friedman to potential contributors last year.

Arons, who says Friedman has buried him in paperwork, including a 135-page filing yesterday, lives in a manufactured home in Florida, collects Social Security and does not have an attorney.

Arons now is trying to amass $1,500 through a loan or donations to sue Friedman in federal court.

Yesterday’s filing by Friedman includes an exhibit of Internet postings on this Blog and the ASD-Biz forum. It also includes content from the websites of the Dallas Morning News and WCTV-TV, a Florida television station.

Separately, Friedman is using a subpoena to ning.com, the host of the ASD-Biz forum, in a bid to obtain information on posters at the forum. Some forum members appear to have changed their forum identities to create twists on their old names or twists on how they’ve been described by Guenther — in protest.

Guenther is scheduled to make a court appearance in Arizona today on felony charges of repeatedly violating a court order that prohibited him from threatening an Arizona company.

  1. You know Larry Friedman’s conduct in this case really reminds me of the kid who hits his little brother. The middle brother runs to Mummy to tell her. The kid then beats up middle brother and says its all his fault that Mummy found out. He forgets of course that if he had never hit his little brother, Mummy would have nothing to find out and he would never have been told off.

    It is time Larry started to take some responsiblity for his own part in all this ASDMBA business and fessed up, instead of hiding behind Bob Guenther and his law office and his friends at court.

    Larry if you stop Jack, you will have to stop the whole internet next and even you dont have enough power to do that. And if you are relying of Bob Guenther for information, you need to understand that he is not very well informed on either who is who at ASD nor how the internet works.

  2. I have a theory developing. Larry the dickhead lawyer files a case in a court that has no jurisdiction over a person. In that filing, dickhead lawyer Larry provides no evidence as to the reason for filing the case but instead files more paperwork. Time goes by, the case ends up in mediation, but Larry the dickhead lawyer deliberately treats the mediation lightly. Larry the dickhead lawyer file more paperwork, making more vague claims and little or no evidence.

    Why would any “high profile” lawyer proceed through a case in such an inept manor, with such a blatant disregard to basic principles as “innocent until proven guilty”?

    It then comes to pass that emails sent to Larry the dickhead lawyer are then answered by a third party. The third party has no legal training, other than the fact that he has been the subject of several legal actions.

    Why would a “high profile” lawyer allow a third party to answer possibly confidential emails?

    The only reason for such inept conduct that I can think of, is that Larry the dickhead lawyer knows that the case is un-winnable. He is deliberately forming grounds for dismissal, or grounds for an appeal.

  4. Hey Jack, that’s more than 3 exclamation marks, so on the Surfs-Up scale, that’s very nearly the absolute truth.

    Good to see you’ve got yourself a lawyer. Judging from how inept and incompetent Friedfish has been, I would not be surprised to see it the case dismissed at some point in the future.

  6. A fictional account but funny.

    I can see it now. After the verdict is overturned, Larry the client sues Larry the lawyer for gross incompetence. Both of them hire Larry the lawyer to represent them. The original Larry the lawyer settles out of court, with his E&O insurance paying the settlement. Larry’s accountant goes insane trying to figure out the taxes.

    Don’t laugh too hard. Business owners have sued themselves alleging negligence and won. I believe the court verdicts in the accounts I have read have been tax free to the plaintiff and the business owner got to take a write off. Nice way to build a nest egg if you can pull it off. A few have, IIRC.

    Jack, congrats on getting a lawyer. Where did that get posted?

    Goodness Gracious,

    The main problem Xavier is gonna have when he writes the book and TV series is getting people to believe Blowhard Bob isn’t a fictional character based on a combination of Gomer Pyle, Gilligan and Stan Laurel, with some Festus Haggen thrown in to provide the Texan cowboy influence.

    Have you considered colluding with Xavier on the book, Uncle John? You could provide a “romantic” element being as that is your forte.

    You could do all the illustrations in the book and then you could once again be the center of attention. I am sure that Xaviar would give you at at least one or two pages.

    Well Boobie Bob at least we do not take money from victims for our own personal gain nor do we claim that we can do something we can not like getting standing in federal court when you knew that would be impossible/not possible.

    We have done nothing more than to take your very own statements and those of Larry that were made in a Public Conference call to victims of an illegal Trust (your own words) and prove that they were lies and filled with miss truths. We disproved everything that came out of your mouth and that of all your other personalities.

    I noticed that in Larry’s latest filing that he deliberately left out all your posts that showed him in a bad light and especially the one where you said that the Trust was not a Trust. The fact that he has done that sure does not bode well for the Truth. The only person that has ruined his reputation is you!!!!!!!!!!
