Mr. Meredith asked Mr. Bennett if his company was seeking legal action against JRDKS. Mr.
Bennett responded they are suing them, they also notified the state. The State office of
Insurance Commissioner has it own statewide investigation. Several places inside of Louisiana
and they found out all of the country these this company is selling bonds that are no good.
The letter they received mentioned something about 150 victims of this.

Mr. Meredith then questioned to staff, why are we hearing this company and JRDKS is not
here, hot hearing them.

Mrs. Hughes responded because we couldn‟t not get service on JRDKS. The address that they
have on file at the Licensing Board, they went to that address to hand serve the Notice of
Hearing the office is empty. The found a couple of other addresses they went to those other
addresses it seems they have disappeared.

Mr. Meredith asked Mrs. Hughes are they licensed?

Mrs. Hughes responded yes sir they are.

Mr. Meredith stated they need to do something about that don‟t they.

Mr. Talbot asked if there were any other questions.

Mr. Lambert questioned Mr. Bennett if his records would show what he paid these people –
Infinity? Attorney Cavignac stated amount he thinks in checks also. Mr. Bennett responded
he thinks they submitted one of the invoices he wants to say it was over. . . .

Attorney Cavignac stated it was over $150,000.00.

Mr. Bennett stated not on just this project, on this project he thinks it was just $25,000.00
for the first payment on this bond. He doesn‟t think they made the second payment because
they didn‟t get that far in the project.

Mr. Lambert asked if all of these jobs didn‟t happen at one time, you must have had some
idea you had a problem.

Attorney Cavignac responded that actually the problem, as they were paying for Bid Bonds
and paying for the Performance Bongs at the Airport at the Jefferson Parish – these are all
bids around the same time frame. So they were being accepted at the airport, so they paid
for their bond.

When they have been hey accepted and under contract with Jefferson Parish School Board, so
they paid for the bond. The put a deposit down when their were notified that they were
apparently low bidders with the state and once their had a technical difficulty Infinity was
saying hold on ,you don‟t owe us any money until we get this cleaned up the bond until the
bond is actually accepted. They would have owed them another payment on that bond. So
they had every reason to believe that the bonds were good because of the fact that they
been accepted prior to them working with Infinity and once they abolished themselves with
Infinity the bonds were accepted in other markets in – inside of Louisiana.

Attorney Cavignac responded to Mr. Lambert stating they had a series of emails that he didn‟t
initially supply, but received the day before from Benetech that shows from September to
October on into November the State was actually talking to George Black at Infinity trying to
work out the problem, so everybody still thought there was still a license or residence issue,
it was much later when they realized the guy was running a scam, they stopped using them
once they figured it out.

Mr. Lambert stated he‟s sure its a scam there, the charge is here, if you bid on a job and you
cannot produce the proper insurance or bond then you are subject to having your license
revoked or some scantion being put on you and that„s what this Board‟s charge is, to show
whether you were inniocently taken advantage of, if you proved how much you paid and the
time frame is makes a big difference, and he happens to know that at Marscanpy, the other
side of the story is, that accepted bid when you bid and they gave you a contracts and a few
months later, as the job was progressing, somebody made claims on the bonds and couldn‟t
get the money or couldn‟t get some result out of it so they check the financial situation and
found there was just a couple of lots in Texas. . . (let him finish) . . . that was security for
like a 6 million job and the lot were not worth $5 hundred-thousand.            A bunch of sub-
contractors were depending on that guarantee, to know that they would get paid and one of
them happened they ordered granite out of Italy that had to be cut and shipped in and he
couldn‟t stop that, the order was already in progress, so the airport had to settle that , but
is a lot of complicating than just a simple accepting this testimony without having those facts
answered for the Board, he thinks their duties need to be – why didn‟t you get another – you
couldn‟t find another surety?

                                                  PAGE 8

Mr. Bennett stated they actually did, in the case of the import with the notification came the
bond company tried to take over the job, they sent a letter saying they wanted to take over
the job, it was similar to the Jefferson Parish Board which was . . . .

Mr. Gallo questioned Mr. Bennett Infinity tried to. Mr. Bennett responded they sent a letter to
the school- to both the school board and the airport saying we want to take the job away
from Benetech and give it to another contractor, that was just again more theft and more
fraud that they were doing. They delivered a letter from CNA Bonding that they could have
re-bonded the job at the airport they application of the public bid law was that since their
bid bonds was no good there was no contract, they couldn‟t accept the bond, that‟s what
they told them.

Mr. Talbot ok – ok

Mr. Lambert stated one more then asked Mr. Bennett what is your connection with the
company that did the Sheriff‟s Office in St. Charles Parish? Those people work you for ah. . .

Mr. Bennett responded um

Mr. Talbot asked those people work for you.

Mr. Lambert stated St. Charles Parish.

Mr. Bennett responded that Bob Blackwelder who works for Parish Construction did work as –
in place for Benetech, but he is not a part of their company or

Mr. Lambert asked Mr. Bennett was he part of the (inaudible)

Mr. Bennett stated he knows the owner of Parish Construction but he doesn‟t work with him.

Mr. Lambert asked if he was part of the bid in St. Charles Parish.

Mr. Bennett responded no sir.

Mr. Gallo stated that most of the state‟s specifications and others require the Bonding
Company to be rated triple A rating. They didn‟t raise that question at the time of the bid to
your knowledge?

Mr. Bennett responded there were three (3) specific cases that you are talking about, the
Airport, the Jefferson Parish School Board and the State. He thinks there are several Infinity
companies listed on that A & M Rating. At one point they started getting concerned on their
part they looked and found it wasn‟t that Infinity that there must be multiple Infinity
companies. That‟s why it passed through.

Mr. Gallo responded that‟s probably why it passed through. Mr. Bennett responded right.

Mr. Bennett stated prior to that and post to that. . .

Mr. Talbot instructed Mr. Bennett to hold one. Any other questions?

Mr. Meredith stated one (1) more question then asked Mr. Bennett after being made aware
that Infinity was a problem, did your company attempt in any shape form or fashion to
continue doing business with Infinity or to use them for any other bonds or any other on
anything. Mr. Bennett responded no sir.

Mr. Meredith asked once you were notified, made aware that you had a bad apple you cut it
down.

Mr. Bennett stated he‟ll say to be perfectly clear once they knew that they where bad and
they actually notified the everyone else. There was poor concern raised either by the state,
initially that who initially raised it and working with Infinity and with the state if was actually
a problem or not. Once it was clear that they were not acceptable, they didn‟t‟ try to bid
any more work with them and post their relationship with Infinity. There is a sheet and
sample letters they have they are acceptable for bonding with CNA Zurich and of the best
related bonding companies out there who are currently under bid under contract with the
Core of Engineers for $25 million dollars with work that is currently bonded without a partner
just Benetech only, so they are viable and acceptable for multiple assurity companies.

Mr. Talbot responded ok – ok

Mr. Weston questioned Mr. Bennett who is the bonding company on the Core Project? Mr.
Bennett responded it is either Zurich or CAN doesn‟t remember exactly but it is one of those
two (2).

(4) judgment, whether they got paid or not he doesn‟t know, but his license was to be

Mr. Talbot asked Mr. Allemore if he was finished or did he need to continue?

Mr. Allemore stated they have more cases, you questioned if we have any judgments against
him, these people that hired Epco they don‟t have any money to hire any lawyers, they went
to the Attorney General‟s Office and the Attorney General‟s Office sent them to us to

any monies to hire a lawyer, they have to go to special services.

Allemore or Mr. Ullo.

renovations and new builds, he has don‟t in excess of fifteen (15) hundred roofs, small
projects and each homeowner, each contract, each home are all different situations. You
have obviously different building methods, but you have different funding sources, you have
different ways of obviously the individuals, the homeowners that they‟ve dealt with, each
one of these cases and complaints to the individuals behind him . . . he has filed suite. He
has an argument for each and every thing that they‟ve done, but he does believe that at the
end of the day they have always been willing to. . . to care and find a way to get through
with their projects.

One (1) of the complaints in here, is from a lady, Mrs. Connor and it was a difficult project,
they change their minds quite a bit, but they got through it, we got a letter of
recommendation, we still go back, if she needs a light bulb changed, we go take care of it for
her and they are on this complaint, but actually they have a letter of recommendation that
he did send to the Board. Now they do have several projects that do have challenges and
they are always willing to work those out and if. . .

came in last week, he has three (3) of them that came in two (2) weeks ago, he never got a
chance to investigate them, he has some homeowners here that would like to make a brief
statement, if you want to hear, we would appreciate it, they came all the way from New
Orleans to be here, they have been waiting for two (2) years or three (3) years to get some
kind of satisfaction from some agency in the State of Louisiana.

get through these hearings then asked what were the wishes of the Board?

him, told him to get off the property. He owes my framer, my AC man he owes the guy that

check was bad, six (6) months, finally the Attorney General was on his butt and he just went
in and made the check good just recently and that was a bad check that even wasn‟t just

daily wanting his money, the frame calls Mr. May daily wanting his money. You got over
$20,000.00 that wasn‟t been paid and he gonna say that‟s because Mr. May fired him. That‟s

going on then they pulled it and told them do not to give them any money.

themselves went in and investigated you can see in the report what was done.

the check it was an agreement based on receiving payment that they would deposit the check

Mr. Epperley through the report and picture that you see, would you agree that much of that
work was not satisfactory?

report that Mr. Epperley made up. He doesn‟t know where it came from or who it came
from. He spoke to the HVAC people, they said to this point you have not given them

Mr. Meredith stated to Mr. Epperley, the public is sitting here, two (2) things - #1 is your
months behind on their projects, you have been pre-paid, there is people out there that you
didn‟t paid and you have been pre-paid. This Board has to look at these things and your
coming up here today saying I‟m a good contractor and we‟ve got the general public saying
not only you behind, not only did you not accomplish the work, but you did shoddy work for
the work you did do and they have pictures and testimony to prove it. If you were an
airplane pilot, your plane would have already crash, now their question as a contractor‟s
Board is you‟re claiming to be a contractor and your plane has crashed, how are you gonna
pick up the pieces. But to staff we‟ve got a problem here is the gentlemen tell the Board he
has 55 on-going, if we revoke him and put him out of business what about the rest of the
general public that he has already Committed to.

do a good job, are they here, is there someone in the audience?

Mr. Talbot stated he thinks the worst thing the Board could do is allow him to continue in the
construction business.

Mr. Meredith asked about what the 55 people he is out there.

(4) suits.

$105,000.00, a 78 year old lady?




Mr. Epperley responded right – him and his brother discussed it and this is one that she
wanted to give them the money – this is gonna sound nuts he knows, because she was afraid
her family might need it or someone might need it. They were listed here, to date he has
spent $31,000.00 on what they have done. The outside is falling off they are trying to figure
out what to do, can they let the volunteers do the outside siding and let Epco move onto the
mechanicals, but if they do that, it would not be dried in. Do they want Epco to take some of
the money and do the outside siding then see what is left for the mechanicals to finish.

Mr. Weston stated that Mr. Lambert would like to make a motion.

Mr. Weston stated he would like to know specifically Mr. Thibodeaux, we will use you as an
example, what happens if the Board pulls this man‟s license today, what happens to your
house?

opinion is only 50% complete, if the Board pulls his license, he guesses he will have to get a
lawyer and sue him.
