Re: Jonina Dourif vs. F.M. Bonsall (a 2nd lawsuit)
This is a second lawsuit regarding the theft which occurred last year at Joni Dourif's Beverly Hills residence and PSI TECH's training office. This lawsuit was recently served on F.M. Bonsall, a former PSI TECH employee who was responsible for the unauthorized entry into her home while she was out of town. Bonsall was the individual who personally removed 30 boxes of PSI TECH files along with numerous other personal property items.
This latest lawsuit is seeking both general and punitive damages not only for the theft but also for defamation and fraud committed by Bonsall and his co-defendants for their outrageous behavior committed against Joni personally.
I should comment that our adversaries would like the public to believe PSI TECH is heavy handed and lawsuit happy, but this is really not the case. It is not PSI TECH's policy nor mine personally to file lawsuits to resolve disputes. In my business career spanning the last 25 years I have found it necessary to file only one lawsuit. Litigation is costly in both time and money, and is usually not worth the hassle. However this situation (the theft of PSI TECH's and Joni's personal property) is so outrageous that we really had no other way to right the wrong. The public has not been made aware of all the facts in this case, and only gets deceptive spin from the defendants. I have made many appeals over the last year to the defendants to avoid litigation by simply returning the property, and at each attempt I have been rebuffed with arrogant disdain.
It seems Mr Bonsall and his co-defendant do not wish to do the right thing and so the only way to get their attention is with a lawsuit. O.K. Mr. Bonsall, and Mr. Dames, the ball is in your court again!
As always, PSI TECH remains vigorous in its quest to promote its mission and will do whatever is necessary to protect its intellectual property and business interests.
