The Beaumont law firm Reaud, Morgan & Quinn has filed a petition to investigate a potential lawsuit, believing two Liberty County residents may have conspired to commit fraud against the firm.
Alleging Mark Beausoleil and Lisa Fregia may have knowledge about libelous statements made about the firm in 2010, managing partner Glen Morgan filed the petition Dec. 7 in Jefferson County District Court.
In the petition, RMQ states it anticipates the pending lawsuit will include allegations of fraud, conspiracy and libel.
"Mr. Beausoleil and Ms. Fregia may have knowledge about libelous statements made about petitioner during calendar year 2010," the petition states. "They may have knowledge regarding fraud and conspiracy to commit fraud against petitioner."
The petition fails to state what alleged libelous statement or action prompted the firm to take action.
Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court, has been assigned to the case.
Case No. E188-924
