OBJECTION TO KEVIN ELDER & GoWIRELESS, INC., MOTION TO DISMISS

Comes now, Raoul Barrie Clymer, plaintiff respectfully filing his objection to Kevin
17 18 19 20 21 22

Elder and GoWireless, Inc., Motion to Dismiss and sets forth the following in support thereof: INTRODUCTION. Plaintiff understands why Defendants want this Court to dismiss the R.I.C.O. claims and relinquish jurisdiction to the State Court. FIRST REQUEST FOR JUDICIAL NOTICE OF STATE COURT DOCUMENT.

23 24 25 26 27 28

Request for Judicial Notice of an exhibit lodged in Riverside County Superior Court, case no. TEC 10007857 & TEC 10007784. In support of a request for a restraining order K. Elder submitted a sworn Declaration which contains the threats and harassment. A true and correct copy has been attached hereto as exhibit 1.

Request for Judicial Notice of page 1, paragraph 3, whichs states, I am the sole shareholder of a company called Pimlico Ranch LLC (Pimlico). SUMMARY OF THE FACTS AND ALLEGATIONS: Contrary to what counselor for K. Elder and Go Wireless, would contend, said Defendants are without clean hands. This was not simply a real estate business deal gone awry.

Nor is this a simple breach of contract. The property in question is as vacant a lot as the day it was initially presented to the Trustee of B&D. However, there is $32,600,000.00 [$32.6 million] verifiable funds invested in the Pimlico Ranch LLC project that are unaccounted for by any of the named Defendants. The first time that Alliance Bank and Pimlico Ranch LLC collaborated to manipulate investment funds, Pimlico Ranch LLC ,by and through defendant Woodside, submitted an Application for a secured construction loan in early 2004. Alliance1 granted Pimlico Ranch LLC a $11.4 million Construction Loan [hereinafter First Loan] back on or about April 28, 2004; a year and a half before B&D became involved with Pimlico. This loan was secured by a

17 18 19 20 21 22

Construction Deed of Trust. See exhibit 2. SECOND REQUEST FOR JUDICIAL NOTICE OF OFFICIAL RECORDS. Plaintiff has submitted certified copies of documents filed with the Riverside County Clerk for this Courts perusal they are listed as exhibits 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. On or about October 21, 2005, Defendants procured a $3.8 million loan against Pimlico

23 24 25 26 27 28

Ranch LLC title [hereinafter Second Loan] from Diversified Builder Services. This loan was secured by a Deed of Trust. See exhibit 3 . On or about December 31, 2005, Defendants secured a $3.5 million loan from B&D

It is unknown at this point who represented Alliance Bank in working with defendant Woodside for the First Loan. This will be resolved by discovery.

OBJECTION TO MOTION TO DISMISS Page 2

[hereinafter Third Loan]. This loan was secured by a Deed of Trust. See exhibit 4. Again in early 2006 defendant Woodside submits another Application to Alliance Bank on behalf of Pimlico Ranch LLC for second Construction Loan. On or about May 25, 2006, Alliance issues a Construction Loan for $13.9 million to Pimlico Ranch LLC [hereinafter Fourth Loan] in the form of an unbridled line of credit. This loan was secured by a Construction

6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16

Deed of Trust. See exhibit 5. If the First Loan was subject to the same contractual conditions as the Fourth Loan, Alliance benefited to the tune of $2.6 million on the two Loans. The Fourth Loan established that Alliance retained $720,238.00 in Undisbursed Interest Reserve, $386,234.00 in Undisbursed Contingency, $174,500.00 in Loan Fees, $30,000.00 in Construction Inspection & Fund Control Fees [Emphasis added]. This is a combined total of approximately $2.6 million in their coffers over a two year span on two transactions collateralized by the same 30 acre bare lot. Plaintiff posits this pattern of activity gives rise to a cause of action for RICO conspiracy. Approximately $32,600,000.00 invested in construction of the Pimlico Ranch LLC Project and

17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28

not one piece of heavy equipment touched the soil. Pimlico and Alliance Bank committed fraud by processing a Construction loan that was a purchase money/personal loan. Alliance intentionally concealed the facts there was an existing construction loan issued to Pimlico. Also, the second Alliance construction loan contained a $3.8 million pay off from B&D whom subordinated to the construction loan as defined in the Construction Loan Agreement. The aforesaid actions of Pimlico and Alliance Bank defrauded the Federal Reserve Bank. Discovery will prove that Alliance securitized the Pimlico Ranch LLC Promissory Note, which was signed and personally guaranteed by the managing members of Pimlico Ranch LLC,

OBJECTION TO MOTION TO DISMISS Page 3

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16

defendants K. Elder, R. Elder, and Scott Woodside, to secure the funds from the Federal Reserve Bank. Of the named Defendants, only K. Elder and GoWireless, Inc., are financially thriving in the worst economy in the History of the United States of America. On or about May 27, 2011, K. Elder personally2 acquired a new project , Desert Vista Village, with 103 lots. The remainder of the named defendants, Pimlico Ranch LLC Project is in default; Drake Development LLC is inert; Mesquite LLC and Turtle Rock LLC Projects appear dormant; and Alliance Bank went bankrupt. It is a matter of public record that from 1995 to 2005 GoWireless, Inc. had opened approximately 80 stores. Which averages 8 store openings per year. From 2005 to 2010 GoWireless, Inc., opened 220 more stores. Which averages 44 stores per year. More than five times as many openings in less than half the time3. Plaintiff contends that GoWireless, Inc. is the recipient of the laundered money. It certainly is not the Pimlico Ranch LLC project, or the incomplete, Mesquite LLC real estate project, or the incomplete Turtle Rock LLC real estate

17 18 19 20 21 22

project.

PLAINTIFFS STANDING. Plaintiff is one member of a family that owns Ben Clymers The Body Shop, Inc. [hereinafter Body Shop]. The Body Shop liquidated its real estate properties with lease back

23 24 25 26 27 28

options to finance the Pimlico Ranch LLC Project, which equates to a burden of approximately $50,000.00 [$49,392.30] per month. Plaintiff contends that this ongoing financial burden is an injury to his business and property. This injury to Plaintiffs business ipso facto gives Plaintiff

All titles to 103 lots are in Kevin Elders personal name.

GoWireless, Inc., ranks no. 1617 on the 2010 Inc 5000 with three years (2006-2009) sales growth of 177%.

standing. The only requirement for RICO standing is that one be a "person injured in his business or property by reason of a violation of section 1962." 18 U.S.C. 1964(c). And the Supreme Court has already told us that "by reason of" incorporates a proximate cause standard, Holmes v. Sec. Investor Prot. Corp., 503 U.S. 258, @ 265-68, (1992), which is generous enough to include the unintended, though foreseeable, consequences of RICO predicate acts.

6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16

Notwithstanding the aforesaid, Plaintiff has acquired assignment for 100% of the Pimlico Ranch LLC Project from the successor-in-interest to B&D Clymer Real Estate, A Trust, including but not limited to right to chose in action. It is Plaintiffs position that he has standing to seek redress. THIS COURT HAS SUBJECT MATTER JURISDICTION WITH /WITHOUT RICO: Even if the RICO conspiracy should not survive, this Court may exercise jurisdiction based on diversity of the parties. Diversity jurisdiction extends to "all civil actions where the matter in controversy exceeds . . . $75,000 . . . and is between . . . [c]itizens of different States." 28 U.S.C. 1332(a)(1). The Complaint names, Defendant, K. Elder, whom is also a resident of

17 18 19 20 21 22

Nevada and GoWireless, Inc., stating the place of incorporation and having headquarters in Las Vegas, Nevada. The pleadings of the said complaint also state an amount in controversy exceeding $75,000.00. A Plaintiff must set forth affirmatively not only the state by which these corporations have been incorporated, but also the state where each of them has its principal place of business. Brandt v. Bay City Super Market, D.C., 182 F.Supp. 937 (1960); and Cameron v.

23 24 25 26 27 28

Hodges, 127 U.S. 322, 8 S.Ct. 1154, 32 L.Ed. 132 (1888) Recently the U.S. Supreme held ..that the phrase "principal place of business" refers to the place where the corporation's high level officers direct, control, and coordinate the corporation's activities. Hertz.Corp. v. Friend, 130 S. Ct. 1181, @ 1186 (2009).

KEVIN ELDER & GOWIRELESS, INC.: The uncontroverted facts of the complaint aver K. Elder represented himself as the sole shareholder of GoWireless, Inc.. K. Elder fraudulently stated the $3.5 million was needed to purchase the Pimlico Ranch LLC project and property outright and that B&D would have to take a second position on title to a Construction loan for the completion of the project. K. Elder personally guaranteed , as sole shareholder of GoWireless, Inc., the successful and timely completion of the Pimlico Ranch LLC project of which he is sole shareholder. K. Elder caused $3.5 million of Pimlico Ranch LLC investment funds to be transferred into his personal account. K. Elder mailed an interest payment check from Drake Development LLC [of which he is a managing member and possibly sole shareholder] . It is a fact K. Elder wire transferred another interest payment from a different unknown account [that may have been GoWireless, Inc.; only discovery can verify which account]. All of the aforesaid constitute a pattern of racketeering activity designed to launder the ill gotten gains thru Go Wireless, Inc. ALTER EGO DOCTRINE:

17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28

This Court defined the alter ego doctrine in Nielson v. Union Bank of California, N.A. 290 F. Supp 2d 1101 @ 1116 and stated: Before the doctrine may be invoked, two elements must be alleged: "First, there must be such a unity of interest and ownership between the corporation and its equitable owner that the separate personalities of the corporation and the shareholder do not in reality exist. Second, there must be an inequitable result if the acts in question are treated as those of the corporation alone." Sonora Diamond Corp. v. Superior Court, 83 Cal.App.4th 523, 526, 99 Cal.Rptr.2d 824 (2000); Mesler, supra, 39 Cal.3d at 300, 216 Cal.Rptr. 443, 702 P.2d 601 ("There is no litmus test to determine when the corporate veil will be pierced; rather the result will depend on the circumstances of each particular case. There are, nevertheless, two general requirements: `(1) that there be such unity of interest and ownership that the separate personalities of the corporation and the individual no longer exist and (2) that, if the acts are treated as those of the corporation alone, an inequitable result will follow,'" quoting Automotriz Del Golfo De California S. A. De C. V. v. Resnick, 47 Cal.2d 792, 796, 306 P.2d 1 (1957)). See

also AT & T v. Compagnie Bruxelles Lambert, 94 F.3d 586, 591 (9th Cir.1996). Taking the facts pled as true, Plaintiff contends that he has established that there is such unity of interest and ownership that the separate personalities of the corporation and the individual no longer exist. K. Elder, continually represents himself as sole shareholder of his companies and commingles funds from said companies to his personal benefit. This Court held that the commingling of corporate and noncorporate assets; the diversion of assets from the corporation to the detriment of creditors; and the failure of an individual to maintain an arm's length relationship with the corporation [are] factors the courts consider in determining whether the corporate veil should be pierced U.S. v. Healthwin Midtown Convalescent Hosp. 511 F. Supp. 416, @419 (C.D. Cal. 1981) It is a fact that K. Elder gave his personal guarantee as sole shareholder of GoWireless, Inc., to procure the fourth Pimlico Ranch LLC loan [second from Alliance Bank] to secure $13.9 million line of credit. K. Elder gave his personal guarantee as the sole shareholder of GoWireless, Inc., to B&D to secure the $3.5 million necessary for the Alliance $13.9 million guaranteed loan. Plaintiff believes that the :alter ego doctrine applies to K. Elder, GoWireless, Inc., Drake Development LLC, and Pimlico Ranch LLC. It would be an inequitable result to allow K. Elder to hide behind the shell companies that he manipulates to his personal benefit. ENTERPRISE: The U.S. Supreme Court has held that a sole share holder and his closely held corporation can be an enterprise as defined by Tile 18 USC section 1962(c). See Cedric Cushner

26 27 28

Promotions v. King, 533 U.S. 158, 121 S. Ct. 2087 , 150 L. Ed 2d 198 (2001) In the instant case K. Elder is admitted sole share holder of GoWireless, Inc., and Pimlico Ranch LLC. It was K.

OBJECTION TO MOTION TO DISMISS Page 7

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16

Elders representation of being sole share holder of Go Wireless, Inc., that induced the Trustee of B&D to invest in Pimlico Ranch LLC. It can also be inferred that it was the same representation that Alliance Bank relied upon inasmuch as Pimlico Ranch LLC possessed a bare vacant 30 lot which is not collateral for a $13.9 million line of credit. The facts as pled state that Pimlico Ranch LLC investment money was directed to K. Elders personal account. It was K. Elder utilizing Pimlico Ranch LLC that committed bank fraud in securing a construction loan. Plaintiff contends that limited discovery of K. Elders personal bank account will firmly establish whether the enterprise is K. Elder and Go Wireless, Inc., or K. Elder and Pimlico Ranch LLC. The $3.5 million investment wired into K. Elders personal account will conclusively establish who benefited by the misappropriation of those funds. The discovery of Pimlico Ranch LLC Construction Loan line of credit will also establish who benefited from the fraudulent funds. OPERATION OR MANAGEMENT: In Reves v. Ernst & Young, --- U.S. ----, 113 S.Ct. 1163, 122 L.Ed.2d 525 (1993), the

17 18 19 20 21 22

Supreme Court provided its interpretation of 1962(c). The Reves Court held that the defendant must "conduct or participate, directly or indirectly, in the conduct of such enterprises's affairs...." The Reves Court narrowly interpreted the phrase, concluding that for liability to attach "one must participate in the operation or management of the enterprise itself." Id. @ 1173. According to the Court, "RICO liability is not limited to those with a formal position in the enterprise, but some

23 24 25 26 27 28

part in directing the enterprise's affairs is required." Id. @ 1170 The operation or management test was created. PREDICATE ACTS ESTABLISH K. ELDERS OPERATION & MANAGEMENT: K. Elder spearheaded the operation of Pimlico Ranch LLC. He personally solicited for

OBJECTION TO MOTION TO DISMISS Page 8

1 2 3 4 5

investment money from B&D and then personally directed B&D to make six wire transfers [six predicate acts of wire fraud] of the Pimlico investment funds into his personal account. It was K. Elder that wired the interest payment [another predicate act of wire fraud] and it was K. Elder that mailed a Drake Development LLC check for another interest payment [one predicate act of mail fraud].

6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16

INJURY TO PLAINTIFFS BUSINESS OR PROPERTY BY REASON OF THE ABOVE: Plaintiff has made monthly payments of approximately $50,000.00 per month for six years for which the immediate cause is the Pimlico Ranch LLC investment. This has severely damaged Plaintiffs family business as a result and Plaintiffs family no longer own their Body shop properties. RICO CONSPIRACY: K. Elder is the sole shareholder of his pride and joy GoWireless, Inc.. Elder has been nationally recognized for the growth of GoWireless, Inc. by Forbes under 40. He is rated as No. 1617 by Inc. 5000, with a 177% growth rate between 2006 to 2009. He is sole share holder of

17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28

Pimlico Ranch LLC and is also a managing member of Drake Development LLC which company developments real estate. There is Mesquite LLC, Turtle Rock LLC, Vista Village LLC, and numerous other real estate projects unknown. It is a documented fact that K. Elder commingles his companies funds at will. It is a fact that Woodside made a statement that Pimilco funds may have been used for GoWireless with an immediate recantation. When K. Elder, R. Elder, and Woodside submitted an application for a construction loan with the knowledge that it was not going to be used for the construction of the intended project they conspired to commit bank fraud. When K. Elder diverted Pimlico Ranch LLC investment funds into his personal bank

OBJECTION TO MOTION TO DISMISS Page 9

1 2 3 4 5

account he committed wire fraud. When Cohen and Alliance Bank issued an unbridled line of credit without regard for performance under the disguise of a Construction Loan they committed bank fraud. Title 18 U.S.C. section 1962(d) proscribes a conspiracy to violate RICO. It provides: "It shall be unlawful for any person to conspire to violate any of the [other RICO] provisions." 18

6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16

U.S.C. section 1962(d). It is the mere agreement to violate RICO that 1962(d) forbids; it is not necessary to prove any substantive RICO violations ever occurred as a result of the conspiracy. Aetna Cas. Sur. Co. v. P & B Autobody, 43 F.3d 1546, @ 1562 (1st Cir.1994). See also, Salinas v. United States, 522 U.S. 52, 118 S.Ct. 469, 139 L.Ed.2d 352 (1997), (which held that a defendant who was acquitted of the substantive racketeering charge nonetheless could be convicted of conspiracy to violate RICO.) The illegal agreement need not be express as long as its existence can be inferred from the words, actions, or interdependence of activities and persons involved. Id. If a RICO conspiracy is demonstrated, "[a]ll conspirators are liable for the acts of their co-conspirators."

17 18 19 20 21 22

Sec. Investor Prot. Corp. v. Vigman, 908 F.2d 1461, 1468 (9th Cir.1990) rev'd on other grounds sub nom. Holmes v. Sec. Investor Prot. Corp., 503 U.S. 258, 112 S.Ct. 1311, 117 L.Ed.2d 532 (1992) (internal quotations and citations omitted). Holding RICO conspirators jointly and severally liable for the acts of their co-conspirators reflects the notion that the damage wrought by the conspiracy "is not to be judged by dismembering it and viewing its separate parts, but

23 24 25 26 27 28

only by looking at it as a whole." Vigman, 908 F.2d @ 1468. "[O]ne who joins with the existing conspirators in the criminal plan does not create a new conspiracy but becomes a member of the existing conspiracy. Hence, an overt act committed prior to the new member joining will be just as effective against him or her as against the prior

OBJECTION TO MOTION TO DISMISS Page 10

parties...."). U.S. v. Fernandez, 388 F.3d 1199 @ 1225 (9th Cir., 2004) BREACH OF CONTRACT: In California, in order to state a claim for breach of contract a plaintiff must plead: (1) the existence of the contract; (2) performance by the plaintiff or excuse for nonperformance; (3) breach by the defendant; and (4) damages. First Commercial Mortgage Co. v. Reece, 8 9 Cal.

6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16

App. 4th 731, 745 (2001). Plaintiff has pled the existence if a contract between Pimlico Ranch LLC and B&D. The contract was attached to the Complaint as exhibit 2. Plaintiff pled that B&D wire transferred $3.5 million to K. Elder in consideration of said contract and that K. Elder refused to pay the interest on said contract. As damages Plaintiff has pled the monthly payments of approximately $50,000.00 for the last six years and the initial $3.5 million issued in consideration of said contract. Paramount is the breach by K. Elder of diverting the investment funds into his personal account and deceiving B&D that the project would be completed in the scheduled time period.

17 18 19 20 21 22

PROMISSORY FRAUD: The Defendants disingenuously claim the instant action is nothing more than a simple breach of contract. A breach of contract is not fraud. However, when the breaching party never intended to perform in the first place, the promise is fraudulent, plain and simple. Promisees have a right to think that they are bargaining for performance, not an action for breach of contract.

23 24 25 26 27 28

Promissory fraud is a subspecies of the action for fraud. See Behnke v. State Farm General Ins. Co., 196 Cal. App. 4th 1443, 1453 (2011). "A promise to do something necessarily implies the intention to perform; hence, where a promise is made without such intention, there is an implied misrepresentation of fact that may be actionable fraud." Id. The elements of

OBJECTION TO MOTION TO DISMISS Page 11

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16

promissory fraud are a promise made regarding a material fact without any intention of performing it; the existence of the intent not to perform at the time the promise was made; intent to deceive or induce the promisee to enter into a transaction; reasonable reliance by the promisee; nonperformance by the party making the promise; and resulting damage to the promise. Id. K. Elder misrepresented that B&Ds $3.5 M would purchase the Pimlico Ranch LLC Project and property outright. He was also misrepresented that B&D would have the opportunity to participate in the development of the property. Moreover, the core statement is K. Elder promised that the project would be completed on schedule and backed said promise with his GoWireless Inc. and its 80 stores. Based upon this statement B&D liquidated family assets to invest in Pimlico Ranch LLC Project. The liquidation involved selling properties with lease-back options. The lease payments are monthly damages. The United States Supreme Court has recently discussed the fraud scienter requirement, holding in Tellabs, Inc. v. Makor Issues and Rights, Ltd., 127 S.Ct. 2499 (2007), that a strong

17 18 19 20 21 22

inference "must be cogent and compelling, thus strong in light of other explanations." According to the Court, "[t]he reviewing court must ask: When the allegations are accepted as true and taken collectively, would a reasonable person deem the inference of scienter at least as strong as any opposing inference?" Id. @ 2511. The facts are that Pimlico had a first loan of 11.4 million and never built a house. Pimlico

23 24 25 26 27 28

secured a second loan for 13.9 million and never built a house. Elder mislead B&D by stating the $3.5 million investment was for outright purchase of Pimlico LLC and property. K. Elder mislead B&D by stating they were subordinating to a construction loan when it was a money purchase loan/personal loan. K. Elder caused the Pimlico investment funds to be transferred

OBJECTION TO MOTION TO DISMISS Page 12

1 2 3 4 5

into his personal account. Exhausted the approved line of credit for $13.9 million without building one house on Pimlico LLC. Alliance Bank never visited the construction site or monitored the release of funds. Plaintiff believes that one can reasonably infer that there was no intent to build Phase I of Pimlico Ranch LLC within the time-frame stated in the Prospectus and that every Defendant,

6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22

named and unnamed, knew the project would never be completed in a timely fashion. When a reasonably prudent person would hear the foregoing facts and then look at the bare vacant 30 acre lot they would conclude there was fraudulent intent from the start. There can be no other reasonable explanation for investing $36.6 million and never building ONE house. Plaintiff would ask that this Court follow the U.S. Supreme Courts admonition "We reiterate, however, that the court's job is not to scrutinize each allegation in isolation but to assess all the allegations holistically." Tellabs, Id. @ 2511 Plaintiff contends that Counsel for K. Elder and GoWireless, Inc., misses the mark with the argument that the parol evidence rule bars Plaintiffs promissory fraud claim based upon the Integration clause found in the Contingent Interest Loan Agreement dated December 31, 2005; which was drafted by said counsels firm. First and foremost, is the agreement between K. Elder, Alliance Bank, and B&D to enter a Subordination of Deed of Trust. The Subordination Agreement is contingent upon the performance of the Construction Loan Agreement for which B&D subordinated their position

23 24 25 26 27 28

on title. Both the Subordination of Deed of Trust and Construction Loan Agreement are dated May 26, 2006. Plaintiff believes that the aforesaid documents supersede the Contingent Interest Loan Agreement. Within the Construction Loan Agreement is the exact personally guaranteed performance by K. Elder that was promised to B&D.
BANK FRAUD:
OBJECTION TO MOTION TO DISMISS Page 13

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

The bank fraud statute prohibits one who "knowingly executes, or attempts to execute, a scheme or artifice ... to obtain any of the moneys ... credits ... or other property owned by" a federally insured institution by making false pretenses. The plain language of the statute states that each execution of the scheme constitutes a separate offense. See United States v. Poliak, 823 F.2d 371, @ 372 (9th Cir.1987), cert. denied, 485 U.S. 1029, 108 S.Ct. 1586, 99 L.Ed.2d 901 (1988). Rule 9(b) provides that "[i]n all averments of fraud ... the circumstances constituting fraud ... shall be stated with particularity." "A pleading is sufficient under rule 9(b) if it identifies the circumstances constituting fraud so that a defendant can prepare an adequate answer from the allegations." Moore v.

Kayport Package Express, Inc., 885 F.2d 531, @ 540 (9th Cir. 1989) (citations omitted). "The plaintiff
10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18

must set forth what is false or misleading about a statement, and why it is false." In re GlenFed Inc. Sec. Litig., 42 F.3d 1541, @ 1548 (9th Cir.1994) Plaintiff has plead that Alliance Bank, by and through its acting agent, Mark Cohen, did conspire with K. Elder, and others to commit bank fraud by issuing a $13.9 million dollar construction loan without regard for performance. [Complaint page 10, para. 54] Plaintiff also attached to Complaint exhibit E which is the Construction Deed of Trust based upon said construction loan filed in the Official Records of Riverside County by Alliance dated May 25, 2006. These facts articulate the who, what, when and where necessary for submitting a defense.

19

Plaintiff believes this satisfies the requirements of Rule 9(b).


20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28

It is an undeniable fact that the terms of said Construction Loan Agreement stated the purpose of the loan with specificity as:

CONSTRUCTION LOAN TO COMPLETE PHASE I OF A SEMI-CUSTOM SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL SUBDIVISION IN MURRIETA, CALIFORNIA (PHASE I INCLUDES COMPLETION OF ALL 25 LOTS AND BUILD OUT OF ONE MODEL HOME AND EIGHT PRODUCTION UNITS). See exhibit The method of payment in the Construction Loan Agreement as follows: Conditions precedent to each advance. Equity Funds. Borrower shall provide evidence of equity funds totaling $3,500,000.00 prior to the initial advance from the Loan Fund.

There is further evidence of bank fraud whereby K. Elder did conspire with Alliance Bank to conceal a payoff in a construction loan. FRAUDULENT CONCEALMENT: Plaintiff has stated K. Elder concealed the fact he procured a Construction Loan. Counsel disingenuously claims that these statements are flatly contradicted by the Subordination Agreement signed by Alliance Bank and Ben on May 25, 2006[] and then he quotes the Notice contained within the document: NOTICE: THIS SUBORDINATION AGREEMENT CONTAINS A PROVISION WHICH ALLOWS THE PERSON OBLIGATED ON YOURE YOUR PROPERTY SECURITY TO OBTAIN A LOAN, A PORTION OF WHICH MAY BE EXPENDED FOR OTHER PURPOSES THAN IMPROVEMENT OF THE LAND. Counsel goes on to emphasize the fact that the borrower could use proceeds for purposes other than land improvement[] by preceding it with an italicized and. This must be Counsels legal justification for his client spending ALL $13.9 million from the Construction Loan on expanding GoWireless, Inc., etc., etc..
