2009.... July....

Are you wondering what could have possibly taken place now??!! The very next day after the mediation, the judge called our lawyer, ironically while my husband was on the phone with her. He told her in all his years he had never seen anything like what transpired the day prior - you go to mediation to avoid a lawsuit, not to serve one. He asked if he could give it another shot and try and mediate a settlement. Why would we disagree.

Over the next several weeks, and way too many thousands of dollars later we came to a buy out agreement. David Tieman agreed to pay us within 45 days of signing.

He is now six months past due on his fiduciary obligation.

We have not seen a dime.


  1. After what you've told us so far, this doesn't surprise me. I am so sorry you have had to go through all of this.

  2. I'm so sorry things worked out this way. I remember how enthusiastic you were when you first posted about the business.

    Is there anything you can do to collect on the money he owes you? It doesn't sound like David takes the agreement very seriously.

  3. Of course not.....I'm so sorry for all you've been through. I just hope this all works out in your favor in the end!

    I guess David never heard of the concept of karma....

  4. GRRR, why are some people like this?! Especially being "family" that really ticks me off. I hope you can somehow get your money.
