Wakile’s legal escapades, including but not limited to his landscaper’s successful lawsuit against him and Exxon’s lawsuit, have previously been reported by various media outlets. Discussion of the Exxon lawsuit was resurrected as a result of Wakile’s famous twitter escapades.
Wakile’s famous twitter escapades are well documented on a twitter feed entitled @WakileMustGo. He has directed his inappropriate tweets at women of varying ages, calling them skanks, douches, dogs, claiming to know where they work, etc. His most offensive tweets are those targeting young women-one in particular stands out where he felt the need to mention the profession of a blogger’s father. After each tirade, Wakile deletes all offensive tweets.
On the evening of June 25, 2013, Wakile commenced yet another “twitter women hater rant.” The following are highlights of his depravity:
As a result of Wakile’s rampage, I sought answers regarding the Judgment obtained by Exxon in the Wakile matter. Wakile repeatedly refused to answer whether the $113,449.46 Judgment had been paid, but insisted that “Richard Wakile” did not appear “in the papers”.
(except of course the landscaper) Exxon?
It appears that Wakile learned to answer questions about his legal issues from Jacqueline Laurita.
In accordance with the invitation of Richard Wakile, I read ALL the pleadings in the matter entitled ExxonMobil Oil Corporation vs. Wakile & Sons, Inc. and Adel Abouzid, Civil Docket No. CV-09-1265 (hereinafter Exxon v. Wakile)
The procedural history of the case is replete with strategic maneuvering by Defendants, but not once did Defendants deny any of the allegations made by Exxon. The Complaint alleged among other things, breach of contract, trespass and conversion (improper taking of Exxon’s property).
The Federal Court issued a preliminary injunction forbidding Defendants from transferring, removing, selling or giving away any of Exxon’s property:
Defendants never denied the allegations of the Complaint, never denied that they wrote bad checks, never denied that they converted (improperly took) Exxon’s equipment or that they owed the funds. Defendants admitted that they forged letters from the Bank.
Defendants did nothing UNTIL after Exxon obtained a Judgment against Defendants which awarded Exxon $113,449.56 against the Defendants.
After Exxon obtained its Judgment, it sought to collect it’s money from Defendants. When Defendants failed to pay, Exxon asked for depositions (questioning under oath) to explore its post judgment remedies and to determine Defendants’ assets. That is where the games began.
Defendants failed to appear for depositions on numerous occasions in violation of Subpoena and Court Orders. Exxon attempted to to reschedule the depositions on several occasions. On one such occasion, Exxon obtained a Court Order scheduling the depositions to take place on November 19. Defendant failed to appear.
Shortly after the date of the scheduled deposition, Defendants’ attorney faxed a “Bankruptcy Petition” listing Exxon’s Judgment in an effort to discharge (wipe out) Defendants’ obligation to pay the money. Bankruptcy law allows persons to discharge debts provided it was not obtained by fraud or other exemptions.
By letter dated December 1, Exxon’s Counsel advised the Federal Judge that Defendants had failed to notify Exxon of the alleged Bankruptcy (and failed to provide the proper address for Exxon on the Bankruptcy Petition). Exxon contended that it was entitled to question Adel Abouzid to determine the assets and shareholders of Wakile & Sons, Inc. and to determine what happened to Exxon’s equipment.
The Federal Judge agreed with Exxon and held Defendants Wakile & Sons, Inc. and Adel Abouzid in contempt for their repeated failures to appear, Ordered that the U.S. Marshall arrest Adul Abouzid and awarded Exxon counsel fees to be paid by Defendants.
Additional arrest warrants have been issued, but the US Marshal’s Office has not yet executed the warrants. Without Defendant Adel Abouzid’s testimony, Exxon may not be aware that Richard Wakile was/is a shareholder of Wakile & Sons, Inc. Furthermore, if there is a finding of alleged fraud, Exxon may “pierce the corporate veil” of Wakile & Sons, Inc. and look to it’s shareholders to cover the liabilities of the corporation.
Richard Wakile may want to spend less time on twitter calling women douches, dogs and skanks and more time resolving the Exxon Judgment against Wakile & Sons, Inc.
