Bartlesville businesswoman Marya Gray has ..., 21 Jan 2013 [cached]
Bartlesville businesswoman Marya Gray has been removed as a defendant from the original lawsuit filed in the on-going investigation of locally-based Focus Group Advisors and its former investment agent, Larry Dearman.
Filed Nov. 16 by retired school administrator Jerry Quillin, the case represents the first of six similar actions that have named The Focus Group, its officers (including Dearman) and several of their business associates.
Gray called Dearman a longtime friend who was formerly employed by Bartnet.
The Focus Group lawsuits, as well as a related investigation by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, involve investments and loans brokered by Dearman between 2009 and last August, when he was dismissed as the firm's senior investment advisor.
Several of the cases, including the original, claim that Individual Retirement Accounts were converted into unsecured business loans without the knowldege of the investor/client.
After Dearman left The Focus Group, the company reportedly notified affected clients regarding "inappropriate private financial transactions" and "a breach of integrity" by one of its former advisors. In December, Focus Group made a cross-claim against Dearman as part of the Quillin suit and at least one of the other cases.
The court ordered a journal entry of judgment for Quillin on Jan. 7 after Dearman failed to appear for a scheduled court session in the case.
In late December, however, Dearman provided testimony related to the first lawsuit in a deposition given at Tulsa.
PAWHUSKA - Claims for damages in ..., 26 May 2013 [cached]
PAWHUSKA - Claims for damages in excess of $1 million are made in a recent lawsuit filed on behalf of an Osage County oil field services firm involved in business deals brokered by Larry Dearman as an investment consultant with Focus Group Advisors.
The latest court action to be taken in the area case contends that Howell's Well Service Inc., sustained over $700,000 in actual monetary losses as a result of defaults on loans arranged by Dearman, between 2007 and 2011, when he was a Focus Group senior advisor.
In the past six months, more than a dozen civil lawsuits have emerged in the financial scandal. At least 35 individual and corporate investors - nearly all from Washington and Osage counties - are now involved.
The first Focus/Dearman lawsuit was filed last November, approximately three months after Dearman had been dismissed from the Bartlesville-based investment firm.
According to the lawsuit petition, four different loans were transacted between Dearman and the well service company over a 50-month period between August 2007 and November 2011. The last loan - for $75,000 -was made directly to Dearman and called for interest to be paid at 10 percent per year.
The first two Howell's loans were for $100,000 each and the third, made in January 2009, was for $200,000.
Both of the early loans were made to Bartnet Wireless, an internet services provider. At the time, Bartnet was controlled by Bartlesville businesswoman Marya Gray, a longtime associate of Dearman.
Named as defendants, along with The Focus Group, Dearman and Gray, are Bartnet LLC (as well as Bartnet Wireless Internet Inc.), The Property Shoppe and Focus Group officials Jon Nettles and Daniel Vice.
