The Spook-y Case of the Missing $2 Million Filed in Dallas Federal Court
But in court documents filed in Dallas federal court yesterday, Cinema Solutions and Michell allege their money men took off with their money -- a total of $2 million, which the suit says was to be used to raise an additional $8 million. The suit, posted on Courthouse News, alleges that Joseph E. Ashmore Jr. and Allan Clark transferred the $2 mil to a Chase account, then claimed to have raised the $8 mil but refuse to turn over any of the dough. So now they want their money back. I've left a message for Ashmore -- whose name might sound familiar, as the attorney who currently offices across the street from Unfair Park HQ served as a "respected former probate judge" in Dallas County from 1975 till his retirment in '86.
