Turk and Caicos Islands Damages Claim Proceeds against Klaus Hofmann, Norman Sorensen, Steve Thompson and David Rocheford

The Elliott Companies Turks and Caicos Litigation and Damages Claim is proceeding. Costs have already been awarded to the Elliott Companies for the wrongful actions taken by the ECC and now the damages evaluation process is underway.

A Brief History from court filings relating to the Turks and Caicos Islands and the improper actions taken by Klaus Hofmann, David Rocheford, Steve Thompson and Norman Sorenson are below. While it is well known that they are Catledge and Impact puppets, they will be held accountable for the irreparable damage they caused to the Elliott Companies and their investors.

123. On March 3, 2009, a combination of so-called "innocent investors" (Klaus Hoffman, David Rocheford, and Steve Thompson) and Impact agent investors (Norman Sorensen) filed a class action in the Turks and Caicos Islands on behalf of "all other persons, which I estimate to number about 1500, who form a class of persons who have contracted with the Defendants concerning the acquisition of time shares, and fractional condominium interests in resorts located in Puerto Plata and Juan Dolio in the Dominican Republic."

124. This combination of investors also took an ex parte TRO obtained in the U.S. to the Turks and Caicos Islands and used it to obtain an ex parte TRO from the Turks and Caicos Islands court.

125. In obtaining the Turks and Caicos TRO, Plaintiffs and their counsel never informed the Turks and Caicos court of the expiration of the U.S. TRO, and made additional misrepresentations concerning the background and status of this matter. After the Turks and Caicos court learned of the Plaintiffs’ deceit, on April 9, 20098 the court discharged the TRO, stating:

"This case causes me some disquiet. The timing of an application of this nature at the same time as a similar action in Florida, the failure to mention so many clearly important material facts in an affidavit prepared by an attorney specifically for an ex parte application, the subsequent manner in which the order was publicized and the failure to take similar action to advise of the amendment to the original order all add to that disquiet."

Quote from Turks and Caicos Chief Justice Gordon Ward
