MEMORADUM I OPPOSITIO TO
COASTAL COMMUITY BAK and/or CETEIAL BAKS
SUPPLEMETAL MOTIO FOR SUMMARY JUDGMET

Defendant and Counter-Plaintiff John Carroll (Carroll), pursuant to Florida
Rule of Civil Procedure 1.510(c) moves for an Order Denying Coastal Community
Banks (Coastal) and/or Centennial Banks (Centennial) Supplemental Motion for
Summary Judgment for the following reasons and shows:






2
1. To Centennials Paragraph 1, Carroll confirms that this is an accurate
representation of the facts of the case.
2. To Centennials Paragraph 2:

a) Carroll disputes this, but has no specific response because
discovery continues.
b) Carroll alleges that there is a written agreement or
representation which supports Carrolls defenses and counterclaims. Discovery is not
complete in this case, but already the record evidence shows that:
1) Counter-Defendant Mike Byers, Senior VP testified during deposition that
after the March 21, 2009 maturity date on the note which Centennial seeks to sue upon,
Coastal approved Carrolls construction loan, and engaged Roger Clark Tax Specialist to
facilitate a subordination of Federal Tax Lien.
Q. How could you find out when we met Mr. Clark, what day
it was?

A. I'd probably go back to some notes or something.

Q. Do you keep any kind of a calendar?

A. I do.
*An e-mail from Byers to Carroll memorializes that the date was March 21, 2009
(Exhibit A).

2) Coastal Community Bank chose Roger Clark themselves to facilitate the
subordination of Federal Tax Lien:
Q. Do you remember how you and I came to meet Mr. Clark?

A. I guess we went down to his office and met him and--

Q. Do you know who introduced us?







3
A. Roger was recommended by Russell.

Q. Mr. Clark is pretty nice, huh?

A. Yeah, he's a good guy.

Q. Would you say that we interviewed or we talked with him
for about an hour?

A. To the best of my recollection.

Q. Did he seem pretty knowledgeable?

A. Yeah, yeah. Of course, I'm not an IRS guy, though. I've
never dealt with the IRS. But from what I heard, he seemed
like he knew what he was doing.

Q. Do you think that Russell told us he was the best in Bay
County?

A. I don't remember that, John. But there's obviously a
reason why he recommended him. He had confidence in him for
some reason.

Q. You don't remember Russell telling us anything about his
qualifications?

A. Not specifically, other than he felt good about Roger
and that he was good at what he does.

3) Byers knew what a subordination of Federal Tax Lien was and why we
needed to achieve one for this loan:
Q. Okay. What is a subordination?

A. A subordination is where the IRS would relinquish their
lien to give the bank a position in front of them.

Q. Then the IRS would be able to put their lien behind the
additional new mortgage?

A. Correct.

Q. So that the bank would be in first position and the IRS
would be subsequent to?







4
A. Right, subordinate, yeah.

4) August 10, 2009, 5 months after the maturity date of the note, Coastals
Senior Executive Vice President, Mike Byers continued to approve of the construction
loan if the parties could obtain the subordination of Tax Lien (Exhibit B). Excerpts:
Put that energy and time into beating the IRS and finding work that pays or better yet a partner to
buy it back with or save funds to service debt after we get IRS out and could sell it back to a new
corp that maybe is owned by a family member. The bank can sell it to whoever and the IRS can't
do anything unless you bought it back personally.

I think Terry (Chairman of Coastal Community Bank), if handled correctly or presented
correctly by you, would agree to somehow agree and document that based on getting our common
enemy, the IRS, out as quickly as possible, that we'd sell it back the day we get it or wr finance to
the winning bidder at the sale. The IRS won't show.

I have never had someone show the character you have shown with the cards you're dealt. And
we (Russell) hear you loud and clear. But unfortunately the FDIC and IRS don't care about
character anymore.

But John we won't look under rocks or play dirty, you're not the problem and neither are we, its
the IRS. Put that offensive and energy toward them. Call the news. Glenn Beck would luv u. If they
are out, everything changes.

5) 16 days later, on August 26, 2009 Byers came to find that the IRS had
approved the subordination of Federal Tax Lien, and that Roger Clark was ordered by the
IRS to set up the closing and send them a HUD1 for signatures:
Q. Do you know what that document is dated?

A. It looks to be dated 8/26/2009, 7:23 a.m.

Q. What is the substance of that document?

A. It looks like -- it's stated the IRS approved the
subordination, that you had gotten a call from the
technical advisory unit in Jacksonville and that you had
called Roger from our team, I'm not sure who you're
referencing there, and he has made contact with the service
to coordinate a closing.

Q. Who was that written to?






5

A. That would be written to me.

Q. By e-mail?

A. Correct.

*The document which memorializes this is attached as (Exhibit C).

6) Byers purposefully delayed sending the information to the IRS, but Carroll
stayed after him because the IRS Technical Services Division was in constant contact
with Carroll and anticipating the closing:
Q. Here you go. If you could just glance over that document
and tell me what is the substance of that document, please.

A. It looks like it's just an e-mail to me, copy to Roger
Clark, from you on August 27th, 2009, asking for an updated
HUD 1 for the existing payoff on the first. And then I
guess the second of 500,000.

*The document which memorializes this is attached as (Exhibit D).

7) Byers continued to delay sending the information to the IRS, but Carroll
stayed after him because the IRS Technical Services Division was in constant contact
with Carroll and anticipating the closing:
Q. If you could, just read that last sentence on there. I
think I said, Mike.

A. Which last sentence here, this one?

Q. Right here.

A. This is in reference to the e-mail from 9/8, which is
the one we've already went over. But basically, Mike, I
need a payoff letter sent to this e-mail ASAP. The IRS is
waiting and pressuring me for it. Mr. Clark will be waiting
as well, John Carroll.

*The document which memorializes this is attached as (Exhibit E).







6
8) Byers continued to delay sending the information to the IRS, but Carroll
stayed after him because the IRS Technical Services Division was in constant contact
with Carroll and anticipating the closing. This time Byers acted upon the IRS request by
involving Russell Enfinger, Chief Compliance Officer for Coastal Community Bank:
A. Okay. It's an e-mail from you to me or to me CC'd you.
I'm not sure. It doesn't say who it's from on here. I need
a payoff letter sent ASAP. The IRS is waiting.

Q. Did I write my name on that anywhere or is my name on
there?

A. Yeah, John Carroll.

Q. Do you know if you acted on that letter; did you issue
the payoff?

A. I don't believe I would have been able to being that the
loan was in default at the time.

Q. Okay. Who would be able to issue that payoff?

A. That would either have to come through -- probably
Russell, I guess, would have been the final answer.

Q. What is Russell's position?

A. He is the chief credit officer. So he is over the entire
loan department.

*The document which memorializes this is attached as (Exhibit F).

9) Mr. Russell Enfinger testified that he took action on issuing the payoffs to
the IRS for the subordination and construction loan:

Q. If you could, this one is called number 71 on the Bates
Stamp, could you try and describe that document?

A. That is an e-mail from Roger Clark to me dated September
the 10th, 2009.

Q. If you need a second to review it that would be fine. I
was going to ask you what do you think the substance of






7
that e-mail was. Was he asking you something or was he
telling you something?

A. Well, it says I think the IRS would probably require
this on bank letterhead. My fees, if Mr. Carroll does not
pay it today, are $2,900 for the three tax returns and
could be an additional $900 for the IRS on the
subordination of the federal tax lien.

*The document which memorializes this is attached as (Exhibit G).

10) Mr. Enfinger produced a document for the IRS which showed that the note
Centennial seeks to foreclose upon was replaced by a new loan, with new terms, a new
loan number, and a new principal balance. That document shows that the new Loan
number was 2570488350 which had a principal balance of $663,606.24 (Exhibit H).
11) The loan number Centennial seeks to foreclose is 2570488360 and has a
principal balance of $570,528.32 (Coastals Foreclosure Complaint).
12) Exhibit H is firm evidence that Coastal committed fraud against Carroll,
the IRS and this Court. That payoff letter which shows a new loan number, principal
balance and the fact that it is a construction loan, not the lot loan sued upon, is dated for
September 10, 2009 which predates Coastal/Centennials 1
st
Amended Complaint which
was filed on November 9, 2009.
13) This case held its first hearing on November 3, 2009 at 3:00 PM in Judge
Greens chambers in DeFuniak Springs. During that hearing, Frank Baker informed
Judge Green that there were indeed future modifications to Carrolls loan, but that
Coastal wished to pursue only the March 2008 modification. Judge Green asked
Coastals counsel, Frank Baker if he heard him correctly, and Mr. Baker replied directly
to Judge Green that indeed Coastal freely admits that there have been modifications
subsequent to the March 2008 note which Coastal is suing upon.






8
14) Neither the Court nor Carroll has obtained all of the documents from the
loan file at this time, but the evidence shows that the Banks board of directors or loan
committee not only approved Carrolls construction loan, but also reduced that approval
to writing. The board members memorialized their approval and signed the loan
documents. Per Chief Credit Officer, Russell Enfinger, Esq.:
Q. What is the appraised value?

A. The appraised value is $1,825,000.

Q. Okay. All right. Oh, it's on the next page up. Whatever
this section is, can you describe that?

A. Okay. This is the loan amount section. And the loan
amount is for 1,069,928.32.

Q. And the last thing on this. Go all the way down to the
bottom. I'm seeing a bunch of signatures. If you could just
describe whose signatures you think those are and what they
mean or reference?

A. This is signed by Mike Byers as the loan officer. And it
appears to be some signatures from the loan committee.
There is Mr. Dubeau has signed it, Mr. Daffin has signed
it, and I honestly can't tell you -- there's a signature
over Mr. Holsenback's space, whether or not that's his, I
don't know. But it's signed over his space, so it appears
to be a signature of Mr. Holsenback, although I don't
recognize it. I don't recognize his signature. I don't know
what it looks like.

Q. How many members of the loan committee are there if you
don't mind?

A. Are there now or back then?

Q. I guess back then.

A. That was a year before I got here, so I'm not sure.

Q. Okay. All right. I'll save that question. Do you know
why they signed that; what does that signature reference?







9
A. They sign those once the loans are approved in loan
committee.

*The document which memorializes this is attached as (Exhibit I).

15) Some of the record evidence recovered thus far in the case includes
evidence of the $500,000 construction loan which has been only been partially paid over
to Carroll thus far. Those recovered documents are attached as (Exhibit J).
16) While Coastals construction loan was $500,000.00, Carroll only received
$49,200.00 of those funds against the completed work. All the while, Coastal had a
certified inspection report from their draw inspector/appraiser Heinz Falke (son-in-law of
Coastals Chairman, Terry DuBose, and brother-in-law to Coastals Senior Executive
Vice President Mike Byers) which showed the value of Carrolls construction
improvements in place was actually $1,030,000.00. Per Heinz Falke:
A. Okay. This one was an as-is value. Because the home is
unfinished as of this particular date where I was on site,
12/21/2009, it was partially completed. So there's a
balance. This is an as-is value.

Q. How do you figure out the value of something that's not
finished?

A. We would first find the market value as completed.

Q. Okay.

A. Okay? And then we would obtain some data from a
certified, or excuse me, a licensed builder and find that
cost to complete.

Q. Got you.

A. And then deduct that from the proposed value, which
would give you an estimate of what you would need to do to
complete that home to bring it to 100 percent.

Q. Can you tell me who gave you the estimate to complete?






10

A. The cost data I had was provided by James Gortemoller, a
licensed contractor.

Q. Is that in that same appraisal?

A. The cost data?

Q. Yeah.

A. His findings?

Q. Uh-huh.

A. Yes. Were estimated at $385,000 to finish to the quality
that it had started at, using the same quality.

Q. I'll write it down. I hadn't seen that yet or anything.
Would it be any problem for me to get that from you? Do I
need to subpoena that?

A. Yeah, this is client specific. I cannot release this. It
has an intended use by an intended user.

Q. Got you. Do you know approximately when Mr. Gortemoller
indicated that value to you?

A. It was provided to me in the process of completing the
appraisal, which was December 21st, 2009. So anywhere in
the week prior to that when I was gathering all the data,
it would have been provided then.

Q. And that's probably because you don't want stale
information? If he gave you a price in August, but you did
the appraisal in --

A. Correct. Everything occurred, you know, within a one
month or less timeframe from when he compiled his data and
I transferred the necessary and pertinent data into the
appraisal. All occurred I'd say within a month, I'm sure.
In the work file, we have dated, everything is dated in the
work file. So my process takes usually a week or less, so
it would be the week of the 21st of December 2009.

Q. How do you figure something like that when you don't
know how long it's going to take? If it might take James
one year, do you factor that in or project in any way?






11

A. There's no projections. Projections are too uncertain.
It's the value as of 12/21/2009. The as-is value was that
number as of 12/21/2009.

Q. And that was based on the full value minus the, more or
less, cost to complete?

A. That is correct. That is the as-is value in its current
condition.

Q. What did you come up with again?

A. 1.6 million as of 12/21/2009, as-is.

Q. So I get this right, that's because you backed out
James' 385,000?

A. The estimate provided by the licensed contractor was
backed out of the value.

Q. So the --

A. Of the proposed value to give us an as-is.

Q. When did you do the proposed value; on that day?

A. As of 12/21/2009, there was a proposed value determined.

Q. That was 1,985,000 minus 385,000?

A. That is correct.

Q. Okay. So I get this right I'll keep track of this. I
think that you're almost exactly right by the way. I think
today, believe it or not, that the prices are going up
there. That's what I think. There's only a few houses left
for sale over there, at that point, but... When you go
through, did you have to go inside the house?

A. I had a walk-through. I photographed and did a walk-
through.

Q. And do you know about construction; can you tell if the
construction was okay? How do I say it? I better clarify.
Can you tell if the construction was usual I would say?







12
A. Typical for the area?

Q. Yeah, typical for the area.

A. Consistent with the other homes being built?

Q. Yes.

A. Okay. Yes. Now, are you speaking of the as-is condition?

Q. Yeah, the as-is.

A. Okay. Not what has been done or what is to be done?

Q. Right, not what is to be done.

A. The as-is construction, it was typical and consistent
with the neighborhoods' building trends and whatnot. And
that's stated as such in the appraisal. Part of the
valuation process is to make sure that the home is
consistent or will be consistent with the trends in that
particular neighborhood, the building trends, and similar
quality of construction and things like that.

Q. That was around four months ago?

A. Yes.

Q. Do you know, like, do you have any reference that says
if we had already put the roof on?

A. In the photograph addenda, it will show up.

Q. Is that with you now?

A. I just have the writing. The photographs are in the
original appraisal, the work file, and the copy that the
bank would have, or I can pull up. The photograph addenda
shows interior and exterior pictures as of 12/21/2009.

Q. That's great. Do you take a lot of pictures?

A. Yes.
*That inspection report on the value of Carrolls construction in place is (Exhibit K).
c) Centennial Bank is plainly wrong about their assertion that the IRS did not






13
approve the subordination agreement. As shown in part b)
Paragraph 1, the evidence shows that Coastal approved the construction loan and
their Senior VP, Mike Byers and John Carroll met with Mr. Roger Clark to obtain the
subordination.
Paragraph 2, the evidence shows that it was Coastal who selected Mr. Clark.
Paragraph 3, the evidence shows that Byers knew what a subordination was and
why we needed to obtain one from the IRS.
Paragraph 4, the evidence shows that long after the March 2009 maturity date of
the loan, Coastal approved of the efforts to obtain the subordination so that the
construction financing could close.
Paragraph 5, the evidence shows that Byers and Coastal knew that the IRS did
approve the subordination.
Paragraph 6, the evidence shows that Byers and Coastal attempted to stall Carroll,
the IRS and the closing.
Paragraph 7, the evidence shows that Byers and Coastal continued to attempt to
stall Carroll, the IRS and the closing.
Paragraph 8, the evidence shows that Byers finally involved Russell Enfinger,
Chief Credit Officer for Coastal to deliver the loan closing package to the IRS.
Paragraph 9, the evidence shows that Russell Enfinger provided a falsified loan
closing package to the IRS.
d) The evidence shows that Centennials assertion in paragraph 2, section d)
is a non issue and has been made in their Supplemental Motion for Summary Judgment in
bad faith.






14
e) The evidence shows that Centennials assertion in paragraph 2, section e)
is a continued attempt to commit fraud against Carroll and this Court for the reasons
described in Carrolls section b) and c) above. Its very important to note however that
per Coastals own internal appraisals, Carrolls equity in the completed Lot 24 is enough
to satisfy not only Coastal/Centennials mortgage, but also the IRS lien in its entirety.
3. Based on the foregoing and the fact that substantial discovery continues,
Centennial Bank is not entitled to final summary judgment over Carrolls affirmative
defenses and counterclaims.
Additional Evidence of Fraud committed against Carroll, the IRS and this Court
4. Throughout this case Carroll has consistently pled that Coastal and Byers
committed Frauds against Carroll.
5. Carroll pled that Coastal and Byers used fraud to induce Carroll to sign the
November 2007 and March 2008 extensions.
6. Carroll also pled that Coastal and Byers committed fraud in the
performance of the November 2007 and March 2008 extensions.
7. Carroll also pled that Coastal and Byers committed a failure of
consideration, that failure is described by Carroll in the foregoing, and the record
evidence shows there remains a genuine issue of material fact regarding same.
8. Carroll also pled that Coastal and Byers Breached the Implied Covenant of
Good Faith and Fair Dealing in the performance of the loan at issue. The record evidence
shows that Byers and Coastal have engaged in unconscionable acts or practices as
implied by Florida Law by luring Carroll and his businesses into agreements which they
did not intend to honor.






15
9. Carroll also pled that Coastal and Byers forced Carroll into Moral and
Economic Duress in their inducements and performance of the loan at issue. The record
evidence shows that Carrolls actions were involuntary and not an exercise of his free
will by the time of the March 2008 endorsement of the note Coastal/Centennial seeks to
sue upon.
10. Carroll also pled that Coastal/Centennial and Byers should be held to
Promissory Estoppel. The record evidence meets Carrolls burden of showing there
remains a genuine issue of material fact on this claim.
11. Carroll also pled that Coastal and Byers should be held to Equitable
Estoppel. The record evidence meets Carrolls burden of showing there remains a
genuine issue of material fact on this claim. Coastal and Byers representations were
contrary to the current state of affairs; Carroll relied upon those misrepresentations and is
suffering detriment caused by the change of position as a result of the representations and
his reliance thereon.
12. Carroll also pled that Coastal/Centennial should be barred from enforcing
this action through Laches. The record evidence shows that Coastal, Byers and Chairman
DuBose intentionally slept on their right to initiate this action in order to be enriched by
Carrolls equity infusions and enhancements to the value of the collateral.
13. Carroll also pled that Coastal came to the Court with Unclean Hands. The
record evidence shows that Byers and Coastals actions in this matter are condemned by
honest and reasonable people; the default and foreclosure would not have occurred but
for Coastal and Byers unclean hands; Coastal seeks a remedy but its inequitable conduct,
constituting unclean hands, bars the granting of relief which Coastal/Centennial seeks.






16
14. Carroll also pled that the Plaintiff committed the act of Waiver. The
record evidence shows that Coastal engaged in conduct that constituted a waiver of their
rights under the agreements in place as implied by Florida Law. By reason of said
waiver, Carroll is excused from further performance of the obligations under the alleged
March 2008 contract at issue herein.
15. Carroll also pled Anticipatory Repudiation. The record evidence shows
that Carroll and Coastal had an oral contract with written memos whereby Coastal would
advance Carroll an additional $860,000.00 against Lot 24 guaranteed by the land and
home. Byers and Coastal instructed Carroll and his companies to commence construction
at Lot 24. Carroll constructed the approved residence on the land to 65% of completion.
Carroll satisfied his obligation to Coastal under the terms of the parties contract. Coastal
has failed to pay Carroll and his company according to Coastals draw schedule. Coastal
continues to refuse to close the loan and pay Carroll and his companies for their work
under the agreement. The agreement provided that Carroll and his companies would be
paid $559,000.00 for the present level of completion. Byers and Coastals affirmative
actions have rendered performance of the contract impossible or apparently impossible.
Coastals breach entitles Carroll to change his position under the contract, wiping out
Coastals claims against Lot 24 in this action.
16. Carroll also pled a setoff in this action. The record evidence shows that
after the institution of the amended agreement, Coastal falsely and fraudulently
represented to Carroll that it had approved and intended to close the enhanced loan to
Carroll. In reliance on this representation and Byers instructions to Carroll, Carroll
commenced construction on Lot 24 which was already encumbered by Coastal under its






17
first mortgage. Carroll has been economically damaged by Coastals breach of the
agreement and has a right to offset any money that may be owed to Coastal.
17. Carroll also pled the defense of Unconscionability in this action. The
record evidence shows that Carroll has enhanced the current value of Lot 24 by at least
$1,000,000.00 as a result of his sacrifices and efforts. Byers personally guaranteed
Carroll that Coastal would never seek attorneys fees of 10% of the outstanding principal
balance. Coastals ambitions and attempts to acquire Carrolls equity without paying the
full value to Carroll are unconscionable for many of the same reasons described in Judge
Charles J. Kahn, Jr.s 1
st
DCA opinion filed November 17, 2009 against Coastal in
Coastal Community Bank vs. Jones. Their complaint should be barred.
18. Discovery is not complete in this case, but already the record evidence
shows that:
a) Carroll made a certified request for an accounting of the loan balance and
production of all documents contained in the loan file on July 28, 2009 (Exhibit L).
b) Coastal did not respond to the certified request for accounting.
c) Instead, Coastal immediately began misappropriating funds from Carrolls
loan into the bank account of bank insider and long time associate of Chairman DuBose,
James Gortemoller to cover his past due loan payments (Exhibit M).
d) Carroll served several requests for production upon Coastal through
Florida Rule of Civil Procedure 1.350, but Coastal withheld the documents.
e) Carroll filed a Motion to Compel the Production of said Documents, and 8
minutes prior to the January 8, 2010 hearing on the Motion, Coastal faxed Judge Green
what it purported to be a complete list of the documents from Carrolls loan file along






18
with a privilege log (Exhibit N).
f) The record evidence shows that Coastal had the inspection report of
Carrolls construction in place (Exhibit K) in their possession at the time they faxed their
documents to Judge Green, but they purposefully omitted that evidence from their
documents and privilege log.
g) That inspection report, along with the other evidence in record, shows that
Coastal was over $400,000.00 behind in its payments to Carroll as of the time of the
filing of their 1
st
Amended Complaint.
h) The construction loan statement Russell Enfinger, Esq. transmitted to the
IRS (Exhibit H), shows an unexplained $100,000.00 increase in Carrolls principle due.
There is no record evidence that explains this fraud which Coastal committed against
Carroll, the IRS and this Court.
i) The record evidence and future evidence which will be developed upon
completion of discovery in this action, shows that Coastals key executives and
construction draw inspectors purposefully delayed this action while Carroll continued to
improve that value of the subject property by over $1,000,000. Those key individuals
included no less than:
1) Senior Executive Vice President, Mike Byers
2) Chief Credit Officer, Russell Enfinger, Esq.
3) Construction draw inspector and certified appraiser, Heinz Falke
4) President of Coastal Community Insurance, Anthony DuBose
5) Loan Officer, Dustin Stokesberry
6) Coastal and Centennials Chief Counsel, Frank A. Baker, Esq.






19
7) Board of Director, Steve Counts
8) Loan Officer, Daniel Jones
9) Assistant to the Chief Credit Officer, Lisa Whitman
10) Assistant to the Executive Vice President, Paula Moravec
11) Coastal Community Chairman of the Board, Terry DuBose
12) Assistant to the Chairman, Becky
13) Executive Vice President Coastal/Centennial, Troy Campbell
j) Carroll has not deposed James Gortemoller yet in this action, but the
record evidence shows that Gortemoller, Byers, DuBose and other unknown co-
conspirators combined their efforts to misappropriate over $10,000 of Carrolls
construction loan proceeds and deposit those into Gortemollers accounts at Coastal
Community Bank. Carroll continuously held the building permit for the project and
worked the project everyday during the period the Counter-Defendants were charging
Carrolls construction loan for Gortemollers fraudulent invoices (Exhibit O)(Exhibit M).
l) Byers testified during deposition that he personally signed off on the
misappropriations to Gortemoller:
Q. Does Mr. Gortemoller have any mortgages with Coastal
Community Bank?

A. Yes.

Q. Okay. I'm going to reserve those other questions. There
was an entry that we looked at a few minutes ago where
James Gortemoller turned in a bill for work he had
performed on lot 24. Do you remember him turning in any
invoices for lot 24?

A. Yeah, I remember him bringing in invoices.







20
Q. Do you think that you okayed the payments of any of
those invoices?

A. I'm sure I okayed the ones that have my signatures on
them.
*Those documents are memorialized as Exhibit M

m) Carrolls loan principal balance ballooned over $100,000.00 with no
explanation. During deposition Byers explained that the loan statements Carroll received
which showed the balance reduced by $100,000.00 at the time were correct (Exhibit P).
Per Byers:
Q. If I was going to present a preliminary HUD or
preliminary payoff to the IRS, how accurate would a loan
statement from that time period be?

A. It depended on what was in the works. There may have
been something else out there that just hadn't gotten
posted to the loan yet. So fairly accurate.

Q. Those loan statements that come, do they tell you the
payoff on there or do they tell you the outstanding
principle balance?

A. They'll give you the outstanding principle balance. And
I believe they may give the interest due to that point, but
I'm not sure.

Q. Okay. Would it be reasonable for a customer to rely on
those?

A. Yes, fairly reasonable.

Q. Okay. What are some of the things that might not show up
on something like that; are there other things that could
have...

19. In regard to DOench-Duhme:
a) Carroll first reminds the Court that discovery is not complete and that
Carroll has outstanding Motions against Coastal/Centennial for violating Florida Rules of
Civil Procedure regarding discovery. Centennial/Coastal cannot rest on the fact that
Carroll has not recovered 100% of the evidence in this case while it violates Floridas
discovery rules.
b) Carroll reminds the Court that nowhere in DOench appear the elements
numbered 1 through 4 that Centennial claims are necessary. Further DOench makes no
reference whatsoever of Title 12 U.S.C. section 1823.
c) Centennial now seeks to use a Federal Law to try and defeat Carrolls
claims and defenses in this Florida case. The wording Centennial uses is found buried at
U.S.C. Title 12, Chapter 16, Section 1823 (e) (1). The facts of this case defeat
Centennials argument in that the FDIC, and their assignee Centennial, acquired Coastal
with the pre-receivership liability and obligation to fund after this case was commenced,
and were completely apprised of all of the loan conditions prior to the assumption.
d) The evidence in record already recovered shows that the note which
Centennial/Coastal seeks to sue upon was replaced by a new note prior to the
receivership, that the Board of Directors voted upon it, approved it, signed their
signatures to it and commenced funding of it prior to purchase and assumption by
Centennial. Coastal/Centennial cannot revert back to an extinct note in order to seek
recovery by attempting to circumvent Carrolls exceptions to DOench found in Howell v
Continental Credit Corp., 655 F2d 743 (7
th
Circuit 1981); Lassiter v Resolution Trust






22
Corp., 610 So. 2d 531 (Fla 5
th
DCA 1992) and Riverside Park Realty Co. v Federal
Deposit Inc. Corp., 465 F. Supp 305 (M.D. Tenn. 1978)
e) Frank Baker, Esq. who was a Board of Director for Coastal, general
counsel for Coastal and remains as attorney for Centennial comes to this Court with
unclean hands in that he has deliberately impeded Carrolls recovery of the documents
needed to prosecute his counter-claims and defenses in this case, while simultaneously
attempting to avoid Carrolls defenses through DOench.
f) Further, Carroll was at Coastals headquarters for 3 of the first 18 hours
that Coastal was being secured by the FDIC during the assumption by Centennial, and he
exchanged documents with the FDIC investigators which satisfied DOench. Those
investigators will be deposed in this case as discovery continues.
g) The written agreements Carroll has recovered thus far in his limited
discovery have all come directly from Coastals loan file. Some of which were certified
by Coastals Chief Credit Officer, Russell Enfinger, Esq. for delivery directly to the IRS.
As such, undoubtedly the Internal Revenue Service Technical Advisory Unit special
agent Larry McTaw and Revenue Officer Wanda Waters will both be deposed as
discovery progresses.
20. The foregoing facts defeat Centennials reference to DOench, Smania v
Mundaca and Sunchase v Sunbelt.
21. Centennial cannot rely on Savers v Amberley. Discovery must continue
prior to a final hearing on Carrolls defense and counter-claims related to Coastals
Breach of Implied Covenant of Good Faith and Fair Dealing. The evidence in record also
shows that the Board and Loan Committee approved the $1,000,000+ construction loan






23
to Carroll and signed off on same. Carroll reminds the Court that Coastal certified to the
IRS that Carroll has a construction loan on the subject property with a different account
number than the loan Centennial is suing upon. Further, Coastals draw inspector
testified in his deposition that the value of Carrolls construction improvements show that
Coastal/Centennial owes Carroll at least $400,000 in draw payments. Carrolls defenses
and counter-claims demand that Carroll would not be in default if Coastal/Centennial
would simply pay Carroll the remaining funds currently due him under the note for the
work in place.
22. Centennial seeks to win Summary Judgment over Carrolls Defenses and
Counter-Claims by citing Krebs v FDIC. Again, Centennials argument is misapplied.
Per Krebs:
Krebs correctly asserts that the D'Oench, Duhme doctrine should not apply to
the assertion of defenses based on a bilateral obligation appearing in the bank's
records. Twin Construction, Inc. v. Boca Raton, Inc., 925 F.2d 378, 383 (11th
Cir.1991). Where the FDIC is on notice of the bank's obligations based upon the
bank's records the D'Oench, Duhme doctrine is inapplicable. Krebs argues that
because Plymouth signed the construction loan agreement that bilateral
obligations arose. However, Krebs misconstrues the application of the "bilateral
obligation" exception to the doctrine on the facts in the immediate case; it is not
the existence of just any bilateral obligation that precludes the doctrine's
application. The bank's "obligation," on which Krebs bases his defenses and
claims must appear in the bank's records such that the FDIC is on notice of the
particular obligation.

In the case at bar, Coastal has already turned over evidence directly from the
banks records which shows that Carroll was approved for the additional financing, the
banks inspector acknowledged and certified that Carroll performed the work and is
entitled to a draw in excess of $400,000.00 and that Coastal has not made the required
payments to Carroll, the bank has misappropriated Carrolls funds over to bank insider
James Gortemoller and Carroll as a direct result Carroll is suffering moral and economic






24
duress, therefore Carroll has met his burden under his claims for Estoppel to defeat the
entry of Summary Judgment.
23. Centennial seeks to win Summary Judgment over Carrolls defenses and
counter-claims counts VI, VII, VIII, and IX by again citing Sunchase v Sunbelt. This
time Centennial also attempts to apply FDIC v Morley as well. Again, Centennial is
attempting to squeeze their case citations into the case at issue herein when they are not
parallel. Carroll must therefore again remind this Court that the record evidence
recovered thus far, over Centennial and Coastals repeated aggressive and fraudulent
Discovery responses, does not apply to the cases which they cite. Carroll has recovered
his evidence, in writing, directly from the files of the former Coastals, and now
Centennials, own loan files. All of which were found present in the official records of
the bank having been born from the minutes of the Board of Directors.
24. Centennial closes out their Supplemental Motion for Summary
Judgment with an argument based on the theory of an express condition precedent.
Centennial has not even taken the time to inform the Court on what condition precedent
they are arguing on behalf of. Carroll cannot hope that this Court will strike this
argument though, and therefore is left to assume that again Centennial is referring to
some alleged failure by Carroll to obtain the subordination of Federal Tax Lien. Carroll
reminds the Court that although Coastal wished Carroll had not gained approval of the
subordination, Carroll did indeed win the approval of the IRS. The evidence in record
shows that the subordination was approved. Carroll will subpoena the special agents for
the IRS, who must comply in accordance with the IRC, because the IRS is a party to this
action.






25
WHEREFORE, Carroll respectfully requests that the court enter an Order
Denying Centennial and Coastal Community Banks Motion for Summary Judgment; and
granting such other or further relief as is appropriate.

I HEREBY CERTIFY that a copy of the foregoing was forwarded to Frank A.
Baker, Esq., 4431 Lafayette Street, Marianna, FL. 32446, counsel for Coastal, and to Paul
Alan Sprowls, Asst. U.S. Attorney, 111 North Adams Street, Tallahassee, FL 32301,

John,

I copied Terry's assistant, Becky, so he'll get it tomorrow and I or we will call u before I go to sleep
Tuesday. She's much faster and I need that time cuz I don't have his schedule. But John we
won't look under rocks or play dirty, you're not the problem and neither are we, its the IRS. Put
that offensive and energy toward them. Call the news. Glenn Beck would luv u. If they are out,
everything changes. Again, you and I aren't the problems. Even with the roof, or even fully
completed, the IRS still holds the cards. I have never had someone show the character you have
shown with the cards you're dealt. And we (Russell) hear you loud and clear. But unfortunately
the FDIC and IRS don't care about character anymore. Russell did hear u on costs and sent
another guy to bid today. Look, I trust you'll not use this email since I'm writing this, I respect u as
a man who's handling his business and fightin but you still have time to best case scenario this
deal. You've come this far, don't let 30 to 40K more over what you could do it for cheaper cloud
this scenario. The bank has to dry it in and/or roof it either way. Hell let us do it! Odds are pretty
good someone could prove that $ to be behind the IRS anyway and an expense to the bank. Put
that energy and time into beating the IRS and finding work that pays or better yet a partner to buy
it back with or save funds to service debt after we get IRS out and could sell it back to a new corp
that maybe is owned by a family member. The bank can sell it to whoever and the IRS can't do
anything unless you bought it back personally. I think Terry, if handled correctly or presented
correctly by you, would agree to somehow agree and document that based on getting our
common enemy, the IRS, out as quickly as possible, that we'd sell it back the day we get it or wr
finance to the winning bidder at the sale. The IRS won't show. Remember, their brother, the
FDIC, is on our ass and we can't take anymore RE either. The order, if you read it or any others,
all C&D's issued to banks use the exact same language and wording, but it reads that we have to
reduce Substandard and ORE each quarter by a certain %. Think about what Russell said, "we
want it paid off" and "we (you and the bank) are the only ones suffering here". We're just both
running out of time and workin against each other only buys the IRS more time and forces u to
take a deal that doesn't help you in the long term to get them paid either. I gave you a lot of hints
here that are a better plan than where we are today. Long winded but I want to be sorta clear. If
you want my advice or coaching on trying one of these hints with Terry, call me or Lisa, and I'll
meet you to discuss and set up a time with u and T, but it'll be Wednesday b4 I can meet you. Its
worth a try and can't get any worse. If not, email me back and I'll run it by Terry as is and see
what happens. I didn't copy Becky after I got to rambling. Again, this is between you and I and
respect we'll keep it that way. Let me know brother. By the way, James is on hold.

Mr. Clark,

I hope this note finds you in good stead. The IRS contacted me via phone today.
The Agent's name is Larry McTaw, 904-665-0896. He told me that my most
recent Request for Subordination is approved with conditions. He gave me a
description of the conditions/exceptions and they were well founded and I agree
with your approval. He asked for a revised HUD 1 closing statement which is no
problem.

I called your office and your assistant asked me to not communicate with him for

Subordination that the Agent had reviewed.

The IRS is asking for an updated HUD 1 that shows the existing payoff of the 1st,
then the 2nd of 500,000. I thought it would be best to show the first without the

payoff of the first then putting doc stamps and fees on the whole land and

Mike,

The IRS Technical Advisory Unit approved the Sub-ordination of Federal Tax
Lien so the Construction Loan for Completion could close. This was conditional
on getting the Technical Advisory Unit an updated HUD 1 and filing the 2008
returns by 9/10/09. The tax specialist retained by Coastal Community Bank
rushed the returns through despite the normal deadline of 10/15/09 to comply
with the IRS agreement. There is a bill for this service of $2,900.00. I trust
Coastal Community Bank will pay this invoice. We have complied with all the
pre-requisites the IRS has asked for, but as of now, we still do not have a written
closing statement from Coastal Community Bank. I have assembled a revised
preliminary HUD 1 for submittal based on the information I have.

Please stay in touch with me. I have not heard any update from Coastal
Community Bank since the Sub-ordination was approved and the deadline is
upon us.

Thanks, John Carroll
