John T. Reed' main page about Russ Whitney 1 Trial date is October 4, 2005 U.S. District Court, Fort Myers, FL If you want to testify against this S.O.B., let me know "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." Edmund Burke Russ Whitney is a convicted violent felon (robbery) and has an unsatisfactory rating from the Better Business Bureau. His claims that he made his "first fortune" in real estate in upstate New York are apparently false. He has gotten into trouble with the attorneys general of Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee and the Florida Department of Banking Division of Securities and Investor Protection. For details on those facts and much more that you will not find at Whitney' own Web site, read on. "Qui male agit odit lucem." ("He who behaves badly hates the light.") "There must be more fools than knaves in this world, else the knaves would have nothing to live on?" Samuel Butler Russ Whitney vs. John T. Reed In June of 2002, Russ Whitney filed a lawsuit against me in U.S. District Court in Fort Myers, FL. (Case number 2:02-CV-288-FTM-29DNF) Tentative trial date was 11/03. The suit accused me of trademark infringement and related charges and of libel. The libel was based on three phrases that were in an email I posted here. The email was from David Keith, one of Whitney' unhappy customers. Later, Whitney sued me three times more in three different courts: Broward County, Fl; Miami U.S. District Court; and Lee County, FL. In May of 2003, Whitney dismissed the first of the four suits he filed against me. The other three continue. As long as he continues to sue me, I will continue to investigate him. Someone has posted in chat rooms that I lost the case and that there is a judgment against me in the Fort Myers federal court. Not that I know of. Whitney withdrew the Fort Myers suit with no agreement, compensation, or concession from me. In other words, there was no out-of-court settlement. They just killed their own suit. It was "voluntarily dismissed" in the official language of the court. In a decision about court costs and attorney fees, the Fort Myers federal court said I was the "prevailing party" as I stated elsewhere at this Web site. Before he sued me, I thought Whitney was the worst guru. Now that I have been researching him, I find that he is much worse than I thought. Here are a bunch of Web pages I have created to share my research on him.
