As a business lawyer, Mr. Schlossberg represents a number of businesses in litigation and other disputes in court. One of those businesses, Niche Music Group LLC, and one of their Managing Members, Attorney Jonathan P. Clunies, Esq,  filed suit on January 3, 2019, in the Supreme Court for the State if New York. Niche and Clunies, alleges, among other things, that, “Schlossberg’s propensity for public racist outbursts was unknown to Niche until May 16, 2018”. The Complaint goes on to state that “Schlossberg owed a duty to Niche to conduct himself in public in such a way as to not discredit himself or his clients”. In addition, “In committing his public racist outburst Schlossberg failed to exercise the ordinarily reasonably skill an knowledge commonly possessed by a member of the legal profession”.

Savage, MN car-dealer, Eric Elijah Aaron was convicted of Fraud for submitting false information on his State Taxes.  On Dec. 19, Judge Christian Wilton sentenced Aaron to three years of probation and 30 days in jail, though Aaron can avoid spending time incarcerated if he pays restitution prior to his report date, which is May 1. Aaron owes $609.61 in restitution, in addition to court fees. Aaron has a history of shoddy business practices. Since 2005, Aaron been convicted on charges related to auto deals in Minnesota on six occasions. His most recent auto-related conviction was in 2015 for theft (intent to exercise temporary control) in a case in which Aaron bought a car from a client only to have his check bounce. In that case, Aaron did not return the car until police got involved, and when he did, it had 5,000 more miles on it than when he got it, and it was inoperable. Aaron also was convicted in 2015 of theft by false representation in a case in which he tried to sell a restaurant that he did not own. The Savage Police Department has received numerous complaints from other customers of Aaron’s over the years. Aaron previously operated Recycle Cars Minnesota LLC in the same location, which had a grade of “F” from the Minnesota and North Dakota Better Business Bureau when it closed in 2013. Auto Unlimited Minnesota has a grade of “A+,” though it is not accredited. Aaron used to be listed as the owner of the business, but the owner is now listed as Jarod Aaron.

Update

Aaron recently appeared on the Judge Faith Jenkins show, where he was accused again of ripping off  Antoine Carpenter and his wife. In the end, a surprise witness gave testimony supporting Carpenter’s version of events and even indicated that Aaron used racial epithets, in describing African-Americans.  Judge Jenkins’ ruling is brutal.

Darryl Wayne Genis, an experienced Criminal Defense attorney, was suspended from the practice of law on October 9, 2015 for misconduct. Genis has been a member of the State Bar of California since 1980 and has no prior record of discipline. The State Bar found that Genis to be an accomplished criminal defense attorney, with a thirty-year record free from any discipline. On March 10, 2016, OCTC filed a two-count Notice of Disciplinary Charges (NDC) against Genis, and charged him with willful violations of: (1) section 6068, subdivision (d)(seeking to mislead a judge); and (2) section 6106 (moral turpitude/misrepresentation through knowledge or gross negligence). The Complaint alleges that  Genis was asked by a superior court judge four consecutive times, in part and collectively, whether he had touched, moved, or hid opposing counsel’s document during a trial recess. Genis repeatedly, and then categorically, denied the allegations. Videotape evidence from the courtroom showed otherwise and demonstrated that Genis had not been honest in his responses to the judge.

The Court found that during the recess, Genis walked over to Greene’s area three times.On each occasion, he looked at Greene’s materials, and in one instance, he took out his cell phone and appeared to take pictures. On his third visit to Greene’s table, he picked up Greene’s laminated placard, looked at it, and then placed it under several papers under the blotter at the end of the prosecutor’s table. The trial Judge reviewed the videotape of the morning recess, which revealed to him that:

“Mr. Genis approached the prosecutor’s counsel table and surveyed his surroundings. He appeared to read and rearrange some documents, then removed his cell phone and photographed something on the prosecutor’s table. Mr. Genis then proceeded to hide a document under a larger stack of papers.”

Mr. Genis was suspended from the practice of law for thirty (30) days.  Subsequently, on July 26, 2016, Mr. Genis entered into a plea agreement with the United States Attorneys Office, for willfully failing to file a tax return. On February 13, 2017, Genis was adjudged guilty and sentenced to 2 Years in Federal Prison. He was subsequently Ordered to pay $679,958 in restitution to the Internal Revenue Services (IRS).  On May 19, 2017, Genis began serving his sentence.
