The Gold Club is seeking a default judgment against a manager who allegedly routed money away from the company and depleted its assets.
As previously reported, Fannett Entertainment (Gold Club) filed a lawsuit June 14 in Jefferson County District Court against Jerry Golding.
Court records show that on Aug. 1 Fannett filed a motion for entry of default judgment, stating that Golding failed to answer the suit on or before July 23.
The motion does not state how much the company is seeking.
According to the complaint, Fannett claims Golding did not properly pay the company's profits and losses in addition to routing money away from the business.
When Fannett made attempts to obtain the complete record keeping books for the company, Golding refused to return them to the company, according to the complaint.
In its suit, Fannett claims Golding breached his contract with the company.
The company seeks an unspecified judgment, plus pre- and post-judgment interest at the legal rate, costs and other relief the court deems just.
Anthony Malley III of Moore Landrey in Beaumont represents it.
Judge Milton Shuffield, 136th District Court is assigned to the case.
Case No. D192-567
