Garner May Have Paid Counsel In AdSurfDaily RICO Case

UPDATED 5:42 P.M. EDT (U.S.A.) In a flurry of activity in the racketeering lawsuit against ASD President Andy Bowdoin, ASD attorney Robert Garner and Golden Panda Ad Builder President Clarence Busby, the plaintiffs in the case have formally added two attorneys and filed a motion for more time to respond to Garner’s motion to be dismissed as a defendant.

Filing pro se despite the fact he is an attorney, Garner earlier asked U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer to dismiss him as a defendant, arguing the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia had no jurisdiction over him.

New court filings by the plaintiffs suggest Garner has retained paid counsel and that his attorney has agreed to give the plaintiffs until July 6 to respond to Garner’s self-filed dismissal motion. The response had been due tomorrow.

The formal move by the plaintiffs — all of whom are ASD members — balances an earlier move by Bank of America to add two attorneys to its legal team. The bank is a Non-RICO defendant in the case.

Bowdoin, Garner and Busby engaged in racketeering with unnamed others, and Bank of America aided and abetted the scheme, the plaintiffs alleged.

Bowdoin still has not answered the RICO complaint, which was filed in January and amended in April.

  1. You are doing a good job following this, and I have recommended your blog to others interested in the ASD case.

    Maybe the reason why Andy has not been served is because he is in a boat on a lake fishing with Clarence Busby. Look for the Chinese version of AVGA shortly. Hmmm, makes me wonder if Juan was onboard too, and will be bring out the Spanish version shortly?

  3. From that picture it looks like Robert Garner has swallowed his previous counsel…..
