Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) July 19, 2012
Christopher Spadaccini of Sun Valley has filed legal action against RESURGENCE CAPITAL, LLC, and Stephen Lubelfeld, CFO, of the organization, with a Complaint for R.I.C.O. statute violations and Deceit and on this date has been filed and served on the two named defendants in California Superior Court. The complaint lists John Does 1-100 as defendants.
The purpose of the RICO statute is "the elimination of the infiltration of organized crime and racketeering into legitimate organizations operating in interstate commerce." S.Rep. No. 617, 91st Cong., 1st Sess. 76 (1969). However, the statute is sufficiently broad to encompass illegal activities relating to any enterprise affecting interstate or foreign commerce.
At the heart of the complaint are the “bill collector” practices allegedly employed by the defendants. The first cause of action alleges:
Plaintiff Christopher Spadaccini alleges that defendants, and each of them, including RESURGENCE CAPITAL, LLC, and Stephen Lubelfeld, CFO are participating in a criminal enterprise per Criminal RICO 18 U.S.C. § 1962 including conspiracy per 18 U.S.C. § 1962(d).
Per CODE OF CIVIL PROCEDURE 902.1: In any case in which a notice was required pursuant to subdivision (e) of Section 664.5, the Attorney General shall have the right to intervene and participate in any appeal taken therefrom. These rights shall apply regardless of whether the Attorney General participated in the case in the trial court.
The lawsuit has been filed in the North Central District, Burbank Courthouse, 300 East Olive Ave. Burbank, CA 91502. The case number is EC058832.
