AEHI Attorney Roth Withdraws for Non-payment; On His Own, Gillispie Files WhinyPants "Appeal" to Judge Lodge

According to PACER filings, on July 8, 2014, AEHI and Gillispie's attorney Richard Roth filed a motion to withdraw as counsel for Gillispie's non-payment of attorney fees.
On July 10, 2014,  Don Gillispie filed his own whinypants "appeal" letter.
All Don does is repeat his whining about the mean old SEC picking on a supposedly upstanding citizen, and adds a new claim that "the administration" is targeting a "conservative."
Judge Lodge ruled on the motion to withdraw, admonishing Gillispie and his "Energy Executive Consulting, LLC" that they have 21 days to obtain counsel or face a default judgment.

  1. Looks like this sad story may be drawing slowly to a close. But you missed a couple of interesting items. First, from documents I found online, it appears that AEHI and Hamilton Guaranty reached a settlement whereby AEHI would pay Hamilton $550,000 of the $2 million held in escrow. But the SEC apparently was able to get Judge Lodge to freeze the $2 million pending disposition of its action against AEHI, which would appear to put the AEHI-Hamilton settlement on ice. Then AEHI filed a lawsuit against the lawyer who originally recommended that AEHI engage Hamilton to raise funds, claiming, in essence, that the lawyer and Hamilton Guaranty duped AEHI into believing that Hamilton could come up with $200 million. Those actions predated July 8 action described here; I wasn't able to find what, if any, action had been taken in those two cases. It should be noted that Roth is not the attorney representing AEHI in its suit against the lawyer, so it may be that the new attorney will take on the SEC case, as well. In the end, though, it seems like a pretty good bet that AEHI will cease to exist, once and for all.
