Nearly two years ago, a human resources company and its owner sued multiple defendants, accusing them of ruining its business reputation.

The case is now on the verge of being dismissed for want of prosecution, court records show

Juanita Vera and Go USA International HR LLC filed suit May 27, 2014 in the Jefferson County District Court against Waysie S. Jensen, Beaumont Police Department, Hubert Oxford, Benckenstein & Oxford LLP, Ruben Dorantes, G&D Construction and Builders, G&D Roofing Construction and Maria Guadalupe Vega Cruz.

Judge Kent Walston, 58th District Court, filed a DWOP notice on April 18, stating the plaintiff failed to show for a April 18 Rule 166 hearing.

According to the complaint, Vera and her company Go USA were hired by the defendants to provide HR services beginning in October. She states at the time she was mistaken by G&D clients for defendant Vega Cruz, and her cell phone was bombarded by misdirected client calls, including calls from creditors seeking payments for returned checks.

On May 13, 2014 the creditors filed a lien against Vera and called the Beaumont Police Department in an attempt to recover funds.

The plaintiff is accusing the defendants of ruining her reputation and for paying her for services with checks that didn't clear the bank.

Vera is seeking damages and costs.

She is a pro se plaintiff.
