    Default Cork-born financial expert Eddie Hobbs' firm 'wrongly' named in alleged US Ponzi court case papers

    On May 3rd the following case was filed in Michigan Eastern District Court alleging multi-million dollar property fraud:

    Llewellyn-Jones et al v. Metro Property Group, LLC et al

    Financial savant Hobbs' firm Brendan Investments Plc is apparently named in the filing. Hugh O'Neill, director of Brendan Investments, today decided he had to issue a preemptive denial to the Indo:

    Papers filed in court include a suggestion that Metro Property established a property joint venture with Brendan Investments last year.

    But Mr O'Neill said that this is wrong. Brendan Investments has done business with Metro Property, he said, and is involved in the Detroit property market.
    That may be so, as a side note a quick Google reveals this:

    If anyone has access to PACER in the US, could you retrieve the case filing?

    I for one wil be shocked, shocked I say, if any negative judgement is made on the flagrant (sic) Mr Hobbs.

    He has consistently operated at the accepted standards of the Irish Financial Services industry.

    What more is there to say?

    I can't find anything in the OP that suggests a link to Hobbs.

    Yes, including the links. And I found no reference to Hobbs.

    That's what the OPer posted, but it's unsupported by any of the links. I'm no fan of Hobbs, but if there is nothing of relevance in the links, then the thread is based on an assertion that implies but fails to prove something and, as such, could be legally problematical.
