Allow me to re-post from the Scott Niswonger worshipping thread.

I wonder what's in Scott's heart as it concerns suing the estate of the late David Parker and The Jewelers Market? Maybe I'm the only one, but in my eyes the move makes him seem greedy and selfish. He wants the court to award him $400,000 retail for $100,000 of wholesale? Use attorneys and the court system to show the smaller customers, "screw you, I got mine". And all based on a verbal agreement? I guess for a billionaire,$100,000 is still enough to use his influence to keep others, including a grieving widow and children from any hope. I hope the Parker family don't get literally moved outside into the call so our local philanthropist can keep his pennies. You're a class act Niswonger.

I appreciate your comment Widow Maker and it is very appropriate but what I am wondering is why one business would send something of that much value to another business and get no paperwork and use the secretary to deliver the GOODS.

hate to burst your bubble people. Niswonger bought Lancaster Jeweler's when they were going out of business--Jewelry and all. Niswonger thought a verbal agreement to leave the jewelry there on consignment was all that's needed. Obviously many people did that. He's not a billionaire. My how the story grows. Will be a trillionaire tomorrow. It was his jewelry. I bet you would sue someone if they kept over 400,000 worth of your property. People sue people everyday for a lot less. It has been over two years. We all buy jewelry at retail knowing it's marked up significantly. The paper was giving the retail value, then the wholesale value. We buy things everyday that are marked up alot. Clothes, food, gasoline etc. Think of all the sales stores have, they're still not losing money because the merchandise is so marked up in the first place. Hate to disappoint the conspiracy crowd once again. It is what it says it is. As the newspaper article said, there were numerous people trying to get their jewelry back. God bless David, and his family. It's so easy to mean well, and then let things get out of control. It doesn't mean anyone's a bad person necessarily (unless the motive is intentional), it just means we all mess up sometimes. And it usually affects the people we love the most. I suggest you read some mystery novels to satisfy your appetite for looking for the worst in someone.

large value property, large amounts of money changing hands, no paper trail, sounds like this should be somewhere else than receivership

I wouldn't care if I had a trillion dollars. What's mine is mine and I would get it back. I don't know the whole details, but sounds like this guy was basically stealing. Again I don't know, just what it sounds like by the things read on Topix.

This was in the works long before the tragedy in the Parker family.I am sure there are others if they had the means to pursue it..

The law is very clear about verbal agreements, they are based on trust alone, when the trust is gone, what is left, nothing. It is not Scott Niswonger's property, it belongs first to creditors, then to the estate. Only influence and or money would give Mr. Niswonger any legitimate claim. He should learn contract law and be smarter in the future and stop this rediculous charade to claim what is no longer his. If you don't believe me go ask Pat Summitt about verbal agreements, she can tell you they are worthless.

There were 42-46 indictments on him before he killed himself. That's a lot.

C'mon guys. Even if I had a billion big ones and someone owed me $400K, I would file a suit to try to get it, regardless of the situation. The bad guy here was Parker. As for Scott not having it in writing, who knows. If so, not wise, but speaks to the way he does personal business. He obviously trusted Parker if that is in fact the case.
