THR & Associates founder Jeff Parsons appeared in federal court in Springfield on Thursday, July 10, 2014, for failure to pay $12.3 million in overtime wages and penalties owed former employees of the buy-sell-trade company. He left the courthouse without talking to reporters.
A federal bankruptcy judge in Springfield has scheduled a trial for late October on claims THR & Associates founder Jeff Parsons knowingly took more than $3.8 million out of the buy-sell company at a time when the business was broke. The trial set for Oct. 29 by U.S.Bankruptcy Judge Mary Gorman results from corporate and personal bankruptcies filed by THR and Parsons in late 2012.
Gorman dismissed both requests for debt-relief in 2013 after bankruptcy trustees alleged Parsons attempted to defraud the court by hiding assets.
Parsons, according to Richardson, took distributions after that date totaling $3,822,529.20.
The withdrawals, Richardson said, were constructively fraudulent, and should be repaid by Parsons.
In his response, Parsons said THR had personal property, inventory, vehicles, accounts receivables and other assets to remain solvent as of Aug. 1, 2011. Parsons also disputed the $3.8 million figure claimed by the bankruptcy trustee. Court records show Parsons is represented by Springfield attorney Michael Logan.
Parsons, who now lives in Texas, was in federal court in Springfield earlier this month in the separate case of former employees claiming they are owned $12.3 million in unpaid overtime and penalties from their work at THR. The next hearing in the employee overtime case has been scheduled for Aug. 27.

It's been a bad couple of years for little Jeffrey Parsons, who first surfaced on the Guns Save Life radar in 2010 when his show rolled into Champaign-Urbana, IL and offered one of our Colt collectors $225 for a pair of $10,000+ Civil War-era Colts.
Now employees are breaking bad on the owner, telling reporters and investigators that they won't be going to jail to shield little Jeffrey from the long-arm of the law.
Former employees say that CEO Jeffrey Parsons and what they call his extravagant spending habits, are to blame for the bounced checks. Parsons is currently facing civil and criminal charges at the federal, state, and local levels and owes the IRS millions.
According to an article in the Springfield, IL State-Journal Register earlier this year, PBS's representatives are suing Jeffrey Parsons and his company in U.S. District court in Springfield.
Further research reveals that this isn't the first time the creators of the PBS program have sued Jeffrey Parsons.
