CASE NUMBER 74C-1644278
DEMAND FOR JURY TRIAL
Meta: Jack Chancellor has had Ardent sue Anhultz to call in the remainder of the loan balance. He thinks it’s fishy, plus… well… Jack likes money. He is going against the advice of his CFO and Townsend Coachworks Division president Jeffrey Moss…

Law Offices of Wright, Lowe, and Scaletta
“I can’t believe it’s come to this,” Jack snarled. On the table in front of him sat a response from McClendon & Co. Law Offices, the legal representatives of Anhultz. It appeared that they were not simply bluffing or stalling. They had steeled themselves for a fight, and an actual trial was all but inevitable.
Leo Scaletta, however, did not share the degree of incredulity that his client had in this matter. “Mr. Chancellor,” his voice was soft and calm. “You know that we continue to take this case in whatever direction that you wish, and our resolve in the matter will reflect your own. However, I will remind you that it is my personal belief that Jeffrey Moss was, indeed correct about the origination of the loan. And it would appear that Anhultz has notarized documentation. Now, I have to ask again. Has Mr. Maxwell found anything more from the Townsend archives?”
“No,” Jack snapped curtly.
Leo pursed his lips. “I see. Well, given what I have at my disposal, I would recommend that Ardent settle…”
“Don’t say that word ever again, Leo. We are not settling with those Dutch bastards.”
Leo nodded, fully expecting that answer. “Well, I’ll put in another motion for continuance. I can buy maybe a couple more months, but we’re looking at a trial sometime in December, most likely. And in the interest of being perfectly frank, Mr. Chancellor, Ardent is not likely to win.”
“I’ve heard that before,” Jack sneered. “I’ve been hearing that for twenty years. I didn’t get to where I am by listening to such nonsense.”
That implies you listen, you arrogant bastard, Leo thought to himself.
