Hon. Judge W. Royal Furgeson, Jr.
April 5, 2011
My guess is it has to do with the receiver’s attempt to sell the LLC domain assets
at 5 cents on the dollar in secret private sales. The receiver apparently believes this
court’s goal is to destroy Mr. Baron and the trust he set up to fund diabetes research,
under the guise of paying receiver fees and ‘attorney claims’. The law clearly does not
support that, and the receiver is threatened with not receiving part of the fee they desire if
your honor follows the law. That appears to be the motivation for the receiver to set up
this ‘incident’– to give passionate impetus not to let ‘them get away with it’ by
disregarding the law and acting ‘in the interest of justice’.
I hope your honor will not bite into the sandwich the receiver has prepared. I will
file a formal response, and attach a full copy of the emails.
With respect to Jeff personally, the tax return issue is a new one raised by the
receiver. No law authorizes a receiver to file an individual's tax return for them. Even a
prisoner in custody files their own tax return– the warden does not do that for them.
While stripping Jeff of his rights with respect to his tax returns (if the law and
constitution permitted such a thing) drives up the receiver's fees– it does not serve any
goal or purpose set by this Court. If the receiver has any legal precedent that a receiver
can file an individual's federal tax return without their consent, they have kept it well
hidden. I will address this in a formal response, but would be saved much effort if your
honor clarifies that Mr. Baron is to file his own individual tax returns.
Very truly yours,
Gary N. Schepps
