A story I wrote last week continues to receive quite a few comments from supporters and detractors of St. Louis-based Health Career Agents Inc
As I reported a few days back
, the first of several lawsuits against the company alleging fraud was scheduled for trial last week. The case was dismissed
, however, the day before the trial was set to begin.
The founder of Health Career Agents Inc., Brian Marchant-Calsyn commented on my original post
defending his business and noting that Clayton attorney Jonathan Andres
also dropped several other lawsuits filed against Health Career Agents.
That is correct. Yet there may soon be more to the story.
Andres tells me that he withdrew the case because he's planning to file
a larger lawsuit against Health Career Agents on behalf of several
"We're broadening the allegations of fraud and expect to file a suit
within the next couple of weeks," says Andres. "The original lawsuits
focused on a number of misrepresentations in the company's disclosure
statements. But we believe that's just the tip of the iceberg."
In the original lawsuit, Gary Schwarz of New Jersey claimed
Marchant-Calsyn fraudulently witheld a drug-dealing arrest and
conviction prior to Schwarz investing $26,900 in Health Career Agents.
