Dargey Loses Control of Everett Company

Dargey Loses Control of Everett Company

Posted by on Nov 12, 2015 in Lawsuits, Legal News, Personal Injury Law |

LobsangDargey, SEO of the Path America, has been removed from the helm of the Everett-based company following a ruling from U.S. District Court Judge, James Robart. Judge Robart has ordered that assets belonging to Path America be placed under the control of Michael Grassmueck, the official court appointed receiver.

Lawsuit Filed

This action was requested by the Securities and Exchange Commission, which filed a civil-securities lawsuit in August, alleging that Lobsang Darcy, of Bellevue, has misappropriated tens of millions of dollars belonging to Chinese citizens. The Chinese investors poured their money into the company in the hope of immigrating to the United States via the EB-5 visa program.

EB-5 Program

The Federal EB-5 program allows rich Chinese to use their savings to invest in U.S enterprise projects that create at least ten permanent full-time jobs. There are 10,000 places available annually in specially approved areas of high unemployment. Successful investors are then eligible for permanent residency in the United States.

Potala Tower Project

2409284578_ec8ceb969e_oIn the case of Path America, the investment projects were the 40-storey Potala Tower on 2116 Fourth Avenue in Seattle, where construction had begun this summer, an apartment and retail project on Grand Avenue, and several more projects in Shoreline and Kirkland. The court appointed receiver, Grassmueck, is now responsible for maximizing the value of the assets owned by Path America, in order to ensure a good return for creditors and investors.
If the court decides that the tens of millions of dollars referred to in the civil-securities lawsuit and allegedly transferred between Path America and Dargey’s two affiliate companies, AMDO Construction and Dargey Enterprises, were indeed misappropriated by LobsangDargey, the receiver will have the power to recover assets.

Dargey Affiliate Companies

Whilst the court order has removed Dargey from the decision making table of Path America, this has not extended to Dargey’s affiliate companies: AMDO Construction, Dargey Enterprises and Potala Farms. As such, the receiver has no control over what happens within these three companies. Dargey’s ownership stake in Path America also remains unaffected.

Dargey Claims Fifth Amendment

As part of the Judge’s order to appoint a receiver and remove Dargey from a position of control over Path America, the receiver has also been given access to all records held at the company. These include electronic communications between Dargey and his attorneys, who were appointed to advice the company on its various construction projects. As a result of this contentious decision, Dargey’s attorney is now claiming that Dargey’s right to protection under the Fifth Amendment has been jeopardized on the basis that the emails could lead to self-incrimination. Because of this, Dargey has the right to ask for specific documents to be held back from the receiver.

Although a court appointed receiver is supposed to marshal and preserve assets rather than liquidate them, the Chinese investors who sank money into the Potala Tower project are keen to have the building completed as soon as possible so they can apply for their residency visas. Their concern is that the receiver will simply liquidate the asset and deprive their children of the chance to live in the United States.

There’s a Problem with America’s Favorite Fish

There’s a Problem with America’s Favorite Fish

Posted by on Nov 12, 2015 in Personal Injury Law, Salmon Problem |

Salmon is good for us. Like other oily fish, salmon is packed full of Omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin B12, vitamin D, and vitamin B6. It also is a good source of phosphorous and niacin. The bad news is that the majority of these health benefits come from wild salmon, and unfortunately for American consumers, fish sold as wild salmon is very often anything but wild.

A Huge Demand for Salmon

In recent years, salmon has overtaken tuna fish to become the most popular fish on the menu in the United States. In theory this shouldn’t be a problem since we have a plentiful supply of wild salmon thanks to hard-working Alaskan fishermen, but the majority of the high-quality salmon caught in Alaska is shipped overseas to feed a foreign market. As a result, U.S suppliers are being forced to import lower quality salmon to satisfy the demand from consumers at home.

This would be OK if imported salmon was labelled as such, but what often happens is that suppliers label it as ‘wild Alaskan salmon’ in order to justify charging a higher price.

The Problem with Aquaculture

Many species of fish and shellfish are farmed in order to meet consumer demand for fresh seafood. In the case of mussels, oysters and the like, artificial farming is not a problem and the resultant product is of high quality. Under the right circumstances, it is also possible to farm high quality salmon, but more often than not, farmed salmon are pumped full of artificial dyes and drugs to ensure the fish looks like its wild cousin – and the unwary consumer is none the wiser.

Farmed salmon are fed an artificial diet that doesn’t contain krill, an important part of a wild salmon’s diet since it gives them their distinctive pink coloring. To combat this, farmed salmon are chemically dyed so they look authentic. Salmon also eat a lot, so huge quantities of wild fish are extracted from the ocean to feed them. The other problem with farmed fish is that they are pumped full of antibiotics to ensure they stay healthy.

Fish Fraud

Fish fraud is a huge problem. The problem is that it is difficult for consumers to spot the difference between a wild fish and a farmed fish. To the untrained eye, one salmon looks much the same as another, although you may find that a chemically dyed salmon loses its color when cooked.

Seafood Substitution

Oceana, the not-for-profit ocean protection group, conducted a study of fish counterfeiting, which looked specifically at salmon. They discovered that 20% of all fish tested in stores was a fake. It might not sound a lot, but that is one in five fish, and if you have paid a premium for a wild Alaskan salmon, you are being seriously ripped off.

The next time you order wild Alaskan salmon from a restaurant menu, ask a few questions about where the salmon originated from, and if it looks a bit pale, you are probably eating a fake fish.
