8. Defendants, and each of them, are 25% interest holders each, however their contribution was a combined total of $20,000.00.

9. Over the course of the year following the organization of the Corporation, Plaintiff had duly participated in the business thereof.

10. However, in or around February 2006 Defendants, and each of them, requested that Plaintiff contribute additional monies to the Corporation. When Plaintiff requested accountings reflecting the assets and liabilities and expenses of the Corporation, Defendants refused to provide any such documentation. Plaintiff then refused to acquiesce to their demands for more money, at which time Defendants became outwardly hostile toward Plaintiff.

11. Additionally, Defendants then notified Plaintiff that he no longer held any interest in the Corporation and if he wanted to retain his ownership interest in the Corporation, he would have to contribute and additional $300,000.00.

12.

Notably, Plaintiff Sheelagh Blumberg has threatened to, among other things, file false rape charges against Plaintiff and to “get [her] Mafia father to take care of [Plaintiff]. Defendant Eric Blumberg has also threatened to report a false rape against Plaintiff, to “cut off his fingers,” “smash [his] teeth out on the curb,” to “kill Fletch…and not get caught,” and has stated that Plaintiff will have to “deal with [his] wife and her Mafia father.”

14. Clearly, the most distressing are the threats against Plaintiff’s life and well-being and the threats Defendants have made to file false rape charges with the police.

15. Due to the unrelenting and virulent onslaught of threats and demands Plaintiff’s health is deteriorating; as someone who suffers from Crohn’s disease, he is vulnerable to various infections and maladies. Now, the stress he is undergoing is severely affecting his condition.

16. Plaintiff is further informed, believes, and thereon alleges that Defendants, and each of them, have made statements to clients, business associates, investors, employees, clients, friends and family members of Plaintiff’s that Plaintiff is “crazy,” an alcoholic, a drug addict, a liar, a thief, a criminal, and a dishonest person.

17. Defendant’s have further stated to business associates of Plaintiff’s that he does not own any part of the Corporation and that Defendants have filed restraining orders against Plaintiff because he will harass and/or attack a woman.
