    Default For DQ's in the know- what's that tidbit in the eurodressage blog?

    About a dressage trainer that was deposed by U.S. Marshall's in the warm up area?
    http://www.eurodressage.com/equestri...king-back-days

    What's the scoop? What trainer? I am guessing if the U.S. Marshall's are involved, it must be a matter of public record?

    Nothing says "I love you" like a tractor. (Clydejumper)

    The reports states, “Elizabeth reported that she accidently put down this pony, ........, at the show.”

    I think it's a shame that the Marshalls' actions ruined Racheal Sanna's ride

    "Defendant also told Tyrone during that conversation that because he had been unable to find a buyer at the price plaintiffs were asking, he would forgo his commission if plaintiffs accepted the $312,000 offer. Plaintiffs instructed defendant to sell the horse for $312,000, with no commission going to defendant. Plaintiffs received a wire transfer at their bank in Tennessee from defendant for $311, 964.50 shortly thereafter.

    Plaintiffs subsequently learned, without disclosure from defendant, that the buyer had actually paid defendant $480,000.
    ...
    It seems apparent that defendant offered no defense not because of any undue hardship but rather because he had no valid defense on the merits."

    What an eff crook.

    my BS detector would probably have started going off at this point:

    I loved how he insisted up and down he couldn't find them a buyer for $500k, and then sold the horse for $480.

    Translation: he couldn't find them a buyer for $700k who would agree to write the check to the dealer instead of directly to the owner.

    You do the crime, you do the time. Or, pay what you owe. He should have known that coming back here would create that sort of situation. Oh, wait, I forgot of whom we are speaking.

    I'm guessing it was a rude awakening to find out he was going to be treated like everyone else when he got here.

    If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck...it's a DUCK...

    If what the plantiff said is true I hope he gets nailed for it. I'm so tired of horse trainers etc screwing owners. I'm also sick of if you open your mouth and tell so and so xyz trainer has a horse for sale some how you are entitled to a commission. I don't know how these people sleep at night. I also think it sucks if your trainer says how much do you want for the horse and you say $100,00 and they sell it for $175,000and they make $75,000. Tell your trainer you want every dime they can get for the horse and the check is made out to you and you will pay them their commission. In the hunter jumper world you'd probably be kicked out of the barn

    So what does being deposed by marshalls mean?

    I'm not sure the marshalls would have bothered taking a statement at this point in time. The jury had already decided the case (based on the link), so I'm not sure it was correct to say they "deposed" him. Maybe it is, but it doesn't sound right--not when Marshalls are involved (if they're federal Marshalls).

    Depose: : to testify to under oath or by affidavit b : affirm, assert c : to take a deposition of <depose a witness>
    intransitive verb
    : to bear witness

    So what happened? Did U.S. Marshalls come and what did they do?

    I just updated my reply. I was being a smarta** and then thought maybe a bit different information was required.

    It means that the US Marshalls interviewed him ("deposed him") for a formal deposition.

    A deposition is a record of out-of-court oral testimony related to a court proceding.

    Does anyone remember if he actually PAID the penalties imposed by the court? Or did he just count on being able to avoid consequences by being out of the countyr?

    I would imagine that if he had already paid up in full nobody would be wasting their time continuing to pursue him.

    So now the plaintiffs take their judgment to the local court in the Netherlands, if he lives there, or to the world court which is at The Hague?

    Too bad he still doesn't own property in FL or they could go after that house.
