Scott County, Arkansas July 12, 2018, By: Thomas Hudson
In the Circuit Court of Scott County, Arkansas Judge David H. McCormick held a hearing to consider the authorization of payment for Cassaundra Holmes attorney, Jack Merle Skinner.
Jack Skinner had thought that, considering the history of this case, the hearing would be a slam dunk for him. The attorney for Fred Potter had been allowed to speak without the usual “court room tagging” or constant interruptions by Skinner. Line by line the submission of the reasons for attorney fees was discussed.
Skinner had asked for attorney fees for public relations for Holmes. The public relations firms in Little Rock had each turned the case down. Now, here is a charge that concerns everyone. Skinner is asking for fees because they are having to monitor social media to see who they might have to file litigation against.
The judge did several times over-rule Skinner and limited the attorney fees. Could it be because the judge is finally taking notice of the fraud proceedings in Crawford County and the massive public attention that this case is getting?
A motion was made in court by Fred Potter’s Attorney for the judge to take judicial notice of the fraud court proceedings in Crawford County. The motion was not heard because Skinner wants time to respond to the motion in writing.
A remarkable difference in the appearance of Cassaundra Holmes was noticed. She appeared to be very swollen and an estimate of 25-30 pounds since the June 4, 2018 hearing. A unnamed phycologist stated “her weight gain could be due to several factors and without medical reasons on could surmise that there may be extreme depression due to the drastic change of events (fraud) in this case.”
It is the opinion of several legal analyst from around the country that the judge should have taken immediate judicial notice of the Crawford County proceedings and issue a temporary order to stay all proceedings and orders until the fraud case has been adjudicated.
In Crawford County, the defendant, Cassaundra Holmes, has 30 days to answer the civil complaint. A amendment to the complaint correcting some errors was filed by the plaintiff. The allegations of fraud has over-whelming evidence and expert testimony to sustain a prima facia case and lead to a victory for Fred Potter.
Many have been asking about a criminal investigation into this matter. Although any information concerning a criminal investigation cannot be discussed at this time, everyone can have reasonable belief that there is a criminal investigation. Considering the fraud and the financial instruments involved there are various law enforcement agencies interested. Those agencies work on their own time schedule and in their own way without public dissemination during any possible investigation.
In addition to a possible criminal case independent of the civil case the judge can make a criminal referral in the matter. Once the fraud case is adjudicated as being fraud then the Scott County case against Fred Potter should become mute and the court should make criminal referrals to the state the fraud used in that court.
AUTHOR’S NOTE: Mr. Skinner, should you want to distract people from the factual issues of the case with your non-since of wanting the court to order Fred Potter to pay for monitoring social media because of your statements of possible law suits against others then I invite you to come after me. You will need an Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, a Coast Guard full of attorneys because you will be way out of your league. Bring it own because I will not only stop reporting the news and making commentaries I intend to increase my reporting concerning you. Yes Mr. Skinner you have a lot to answer for in this case. I would love to depose you for a federal case because I am not going to play in small town America with the good-ole boy game that you seemingly have enjoyed filling your bank accounts over the years. Perhaps we can teach you some constitutional law and a concept known as freedom of speech. Leave Fred alone and come after me if you want to play in the big leagues.
