Cork-born financial expert Eddie Hobbs' firm 'wrongly' named in alleged US Ponzi court case papers

On May 3rd the following case was filed in Michigan Eastern District Court alleging multi-million dollar property fraud:

Llewellyn-Jones et al v. Metro Property Group, LLC et al

Financial savant Hobbs' firm Brendan Investments Plc is apparently named in the filing. Hugh O'Neill, director of Brendan Investments, today decided he had to issue a preemptive denial to the Indo:

Papers filed in court include a suggestion that Metro Property established a property joint venture with Brendan Investments last year.

But Mr O'Neill said that this is wrong. Brendan Investments has done business with Metro Property, he said, and is involved in the Detroit property market.
That may be so, as a side note a quick Google reveals this:

If anyone has access to PACER in the US, could you retrieve the case filing?

I for one wil be shocked, shocked I say, if any negative judgement is made on the flagrant (sic) Mr Hobbs.

He has consistently operated at the accepted standards of the Irish Financial Services industry.

What more is there to say?

I can't find anything in the OP that suggests a link to Hobbs.

That's what the OPer posted, but it's unsupported by any of the links. I'm no fan of Hobbs, but if there is nothing of relevance in the links, then the thread is based on an assertion that implies but fails to prove something and, as such, could be legally problematical.

Dont mind Hobbs, take a look at the "attorney" who filed the case. On Bin Laden's death "1 down 1.8bn to go" what a piece of stuff. It looks like she has a fanatic hatred and is an anti-Muslim campaigner. She is a writer / commentator first who seems to work from home and has her sights set on Muslim Americans in Dearborn Detroit which these Lebanese guys are helping to rejuvenate. She openly calls it Dearbornisatan. Cant do links but google Deborah Schlussel Wiki. She's incendiary

According to their website (6tech.com) Brendan Investments partnered with Metro Property to form Woodward Capital. The website inexplicably disappeared yesterday afternoon......coincidence?

Listed as Woodward Capital's "Team" were David Clehane and John Keating as well as the Baydouns from Metro (they are the ones who are being sued).

Brendan Investments + Metro Property = Woodward Capital. At least according to their website it did until yesterday afternoon.

This is still on Google:
The Woodward Capital Team | Brendan Investments Property ...

The directors of Woodward capital have significant experience in investment, banking and property.We have partnered with Metro Property Group Detroit's #1 ...

Reading the Indo, that was the wrongful info in your woman's filing. She seems a real nutjob. Theres a statement on bipropertymanagement.ie that Metro the Muslim-run firm she's attacking were acting as service providers.

Stop turning it into some sort of religious hate campaign....read the filed case and then comment.
