Jacques Poujade denied contempt reconsideration & stay
Jacques Poujade’s attempt to reverse an order directing him to surrender money and assets has been denied.
According to the FTC, Poujade’s motions were an ‘eleventh hour desperate attempt to keep documents and communications from the‘ regulator.
Some of these documents were retrieved from Jason Cardiff’s phone, and reveal ongoing communication between Poujade and the Cardiffs.
The FTC states there has been attempts by the parties to delete the communications.
In light of his separately filed appeal, the court denied Poujade’s motion for reconsideration as moot.
Poujade’s arguments for an alternative stay were also rejected.
Accordingly both of Poujade’s motion were denied. The appeal is still yet to play but I don’t like his chances.
The balance of equities does not tip in Mr. Poujade’s favor. The Court found him to be “totally unbelievable” and intertwined with Defendants’ fraud.
The public interest lies in uncovering the extent of Defendants’ fraud and seizing as much of their assets as possible for restitution to the victims, and cessation of fraud on the public.
Allowing (Poujade) to escape expedited discovery hampers the FTC’s ability to discover quickly Defendants’ assets and investigate the extent of their fraud.
Being seen to actively try to hide information from the FTC is never a good look.
What is going to happen to these guys do you think? The court rules against them every time.
Redwood and the Cardiffs will lose the case eventually. Not sure how deep Poujade will go down with the sinking ship.
Through the order challenges and refusal to comply, all they’re doing is digging a deeper legal hole.
With this case being civil yet with all the commotion going on, could this turn federal?
Also when will FTC continue to go after them for their original reasons for going after them?
Seems as though they’ve been on the hunt for their money but what about finding them guilty of false marketing?
Can’t really comment on additional DOJ proceedings, they keep their cases pretty close to their chest till they file.
What’s happening now is part of the FTC case. Once this all plays out they’ll get back to the original complaint.
Will these guys have any money left in the end?
And if they have their assets frozen, how can they live? How could you even pay for groceries?
Nobody’s stopping them getting legitimate work. They just can’t touch their scam money.
Did you know that Jason Cardiff’s former father in law is Peter Popoff? The known scam artist televangelist from the 1980’s?
Yeah, came up here – https://behindmlm.com/mlm/regulation/ftc-sues-redwood-scientific-technologies-over-consumer-fraud/
Cardiff just filed another motion with yet another attorney. Will this ever end?!?
He just wants to paper the FTC to death until they give in and settle.
Good luck papering the FTC to death, they have unlimited resources and manpower.
I just checked the docket a few days ago and True Pharmastrip was denied a motion to intervene.
I just checked it again and sure enough there’s a new “give us relief from the prelim injunction” filing.
Can’t see that happening given the history but we’ll wait for an order before publishing anything.
Out of all of these cases that you follow, how bad of an actor is Cardiff compared to the others, like on a scale of 1-10. 10 being the worst you have seen.
I have to caveat that this is purely as a defendant, I don’t know Cardiff personally and have nothing against him.
Strictly as a scam defendant I rate Cardiff about a 7. He keeps digging himself a deeper hole but at no time is there any actual serious threat behind his misconduct.
It’s more amusing than anything to see him continually steamrolled by the FTC.
You see this and must wonder if Cardiff has CTE.
Do you think Eunjung is guilty of anything too?
The FTC certainly does.
I just saw that Eunjung went to college at Columbia. Do you really think someone that well educated would be with a conman?
Well here we are…
Listen if you just want to get into the personals of the Cardiff’s relationship this isn’t the place for it. I have an update on the case coming out later today.
Big update coming I bet I see the docket, wow the FTC keeps firing back and don’t seem ready to give in or settle. It is just wild.
