State Congress Democratic candidate John LaVergne is back in the hot seat, as records show a warrant for his arrest back in 2010 after his attempt to avoid a judge’s order to pay back a neighbor after borrowing $4,000.
LaVergne had taken a loan out in 2008 from neighbor Dianne Louder. Louder had filed a lawsuit in 2010. However, LaVergne did not show up to his april 2010 court date, thus awarding Louder her money back by default.
By November 2010, he had owed $5,297, which included interest and court costs. The court did receive a little over six hundred twenty five dollars, but not enough to cover the total debt in the summer of 2011.
On May of this year, LaVergne filed for protection from creditors. A sherriff’s auction was posted for april 14th, but was postponed twice. However, the bankruptcy protection has furthermore postponed the auction.
