Default Havasu dealer sued for withholding payment

http://www.havasunews.com/news/havas...r-comment-area

A Lake Havasu City boat dealer said he was confident a lawsuit filed against him earlier this month would be resolved before a court hearing scheduled next week.
Tim McDonald, who sells high performance boats at Offshore Custom Marine, was sued at the beginning of May by Christopher Collins, of Washington, for breach of contract and unjust enrichment. Collins alleges that McDonald failed to pay him more than $80,000 after selling Collins’ 29-foot 2010 Nordic boat in April 2014.
McDonald said on Friday he was confident the matter would be resolved next week after he got some additional title paperwork from Collins, but Collins’ attorney said Friday neither he nor his client had heard from McDonald or entered into any settlement negotiations. McDonald didn’t want to comment further on the suit.
“(McDonald) has no defense,” attorney Richard Rahnema said. “He sold the boat, took the money and hasn’t paid my client.”
It had been 379 days since McDonald sold Collins’ boat when the suit was filed, according to the complaint.
Rahnema, of Havasu-based law firm Wachtel, Biehn & Malm, filed a pair of similar complaints against McDonald last year on behalf of clients who also had worked with McDonald on boat sales. He said McDonald ultimately made each of those clients “whole,” as well as a third client who never filed a complaint.
The three complaints taken together allege a pattern of McDonald delaying payments after he had successfully sold boats that had been part of consignment agreements. The complaints argue that McDonald “misrepresented several facts” by saying payments had been sent in the mail or that wire transfers didn’t go through successfully.
“My clients have heard so many lies that at some point you have to draw a line in the sand,” Rahnema said.

Maybe out of state checks take 380 days to clear the bank in that part of the country.

Is the same "Tim McDonald" from Oregon Custom Marine that was mixed up with Chuck's Nortech/Frisina/Spectre-Sonic deal?

Yes this is this "in famous" Tim Mcdonald that took Chucks boat in trade and apparently still holds the title to Chucks boat.
