BREAKING NEWS: Garner Served With RICO Complaint Filed By ASD Members; Asks Court For Time To Respond

Robert GarnerUPDATED 10:37 A.M. EDT (U.S.A.) AdSurfDaily attorney Robert Garner has been served with a lawsuit alleging he engaged in racketeering with ASD President Andy Bowdoin and Golden Panda Ad Builder President Clarence Busby.

The RICO lawsuit had been pending since Jan. 15. In court filings, Garner acknowledged he was served with the complaint April 2. He has asked for time to respond.

Garner’s motion for enlargment of time to file was filed pro se, meaning it was filed by Garner himself and not an attorney representing Garner. The motion lists a P.O. Box in Greensboro, N.C., as Garner’s address.

Garner’s motion does not say where he was served the complaint. In a proposed order, he asked a federal magistrate judge to grant the motion to enlarge time, as opposed to asking Judge Rosemary Collyer, the district judge hearing the case. Garner wants until May 22 to respond.

Plaintiffs include Mike Collins, Frank Greene and Natures Discount Inc. — all members of ASD.

The RICO complaint alleged that Garner, Bowdoin and Busby were involved in “other” schemes beyond ASD, Golden Panda and LaFuenteDinero, and have “committed or aided and abetted in the commission of countless acts of racketeering activity,” including indictable offenses.

No attorney for either Bowdoin or Busby has entered an appearance notice in the racketeering case. It is unclear if they have been served. The lawsuit was filed Jan. 15. It has been the subject of delays, owing to the plaintiffs’ inability to perfect service on the defendants.

  1. Great! Made my day, though I am still chuckling at the image of Garner living in a post office box! (Yes, I know that’s not the case, but the visual is a hoot!). It will be interesting to see what he says on May 22nd.

    Probably that “no one told him he was doing anything illegal”
