On October 26, 2005, Madison County Judge Nicholas Byron dismissed J. Lloyd Tomer from a lawsuit filed by Harold Lee Wathan (04-L-1411, District Court of Madison County, IL). The suit had alleged Breach of Contract and Fraud with respect to a business transaction between Mr. Wathan and Mr. Tomer’s son, Frank Tomer, in 2001. The transaction involved the sale of Lloyd Tomer’s securities and insurance business with Primerica, Inc. after his retirement.

Lloyd Tomer is the founder, and is currently the Chairman of The Board, of Your Travel Biz International (YTBL). “I am happy to have this unfortunate experience behind me. I’ve worked very hard to make YTB a success, and want to thank everybody in the organization for standing behind me. I pledge to work even harder to restore whatever damage has been done to my reputation by this lawsuit and make YTB the best in the travel business.”

Mr. Tomer continued, "Prior to the lawsuit’s dismissal, several Internet websites posted press releases provided by Mr. Wathan and his attorney for the purpose of damaging my business reputation. I found out the hard way that the Internet can be an effective way for some people to damage your reputation. Too bad there is no way to regulate or fact check stories before they go flying out to the cyber world. The moral here is, don’t believe everything you read on the Internet.”
