Madison, WI (PRWEB) March 26, 2004
In the ongoing case against Nevada-based network marketing company Global Daily Pay, Inc., the Wisconsin Department of Justice has decided to dismiss the civil complaint against Richard M. Krawczyk, Ph.D., the companyÂs president.
Court documents reveal that as late as February 18, Attorney General Peggy A. Lautenschlager and Asst. Attorney General Juan B. Colas attempted to proceed with the case against consumer advocate Krawczyk by Âpiercing the corporate veilÂ and naming him to the complaint against Global Daily Pay. However, when faced with the fact that officers and directors are protected under Wisconsin and Nevada corporation law, the Attorney GeneralÂs office finally conceded that Krawczyk Âhas no personal interest in the funds at issue and that he is not a necessary party to this actionÂ in documents filed on February 27.
Oral arguments will be heard March 30 in Dane County Circuit Court before Judge Patrick Fielder to determine if the suit initiated by the State was frivolous in nature. If determined to be a frivolous suit, Krawczyk would be entitled to attorneyÂs fees and court costs, according to Wisconsin State Statute 814.025.
ÂThe fact that Lautenschlager and Colas have finally come to the realization that Dr. Krawczyk was not involved in any irregularities bodes well for Global Daily Pay,Â stated Michael Taylor of Maverick & Associates. ÂAnd with the standard of proof being lower in a civil court, the State would have a harder time trying to create any case against Dr. Krawczyk in a criminal court where they would have to prove their unfounded attacks beyond a reasonable doubt.Â
Lautenschlager has been under increased scrutiny after her recent arrest for drunk driving as well as allegations that have disclosed a pattern of unfair business practices, including the violation of constitutional rights by the Attorney GeneralÂs Office after she illegally shut down the company Global Daily Pay's website without a restraining order, as required by law. Notices of Claim have already been filed with the State and Wisconsin taxpayers may be forced to compensate victims in the amount of $158.5 million by injuring over 30,000 consumers.
