RR Auction Prevails in Class Action Lawsuit Attempt by Michael Johnson

Boston memorabilia house RR Auction emerged victorious from a Santa Barbara, California courtroom Friday, when an attempt to bring a class action lawsuit against the company failed the basic tests; including that no one wanted to join the lawsuit.

Superior Court Judge Donna Geck shot down the attempt by Michael Johnson and his lawyer, Dugan Kelley of Christman Kelley & Clarke, to certify the class action in a tentative ruling posted two days before. Johnson’s lawyers didn’t object to the Court’s ruling during the March 13 hearing that lasted only a few minutes.

RR Auction VP Robert Livingston said they spent 2 1/2 years defending themselves against a man Livingston calls a serial litigator who filed a frivolous lawsuit. Someone he claims was once looking to set up a competing autograph business.

Prior Law Firm Sued

Johnson is also suing the first law firm that represented him in this case for malpractice, McCarthy & Kroes, alleging negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, declaratory relief and financial elder abuse.

Among Johnson’s allegations in the suit against his former law firm is that “…the Defendant [McCarthy & Kroes] pled causes of action that were frivolous, untenable, and contrary to California law (e.g. unjust enrichment) thereby driving up the costs, fees, and adding further delay to a case that should have proceeded expeditiously.

“That’s one thing Johnson and we agree on,” said Livingston.

$130,000…or $9,610?

Johnson claims that over $130,000 in autographs he purchased from RR were not authentic, although in his January 30, 2015 declaration he lists only 12 signed items from RR that he sent to authenticators and were rejected, for which he paid $8,008 plus 20% commission ($9,610). Johnson claimed that based on those 12, the authenticator, PSA/DNA, determined that all of the autographs he purchased from RR were forgeries.

Autographs Not Returned

In their filings, RR claims that they were ready to honor their lifetime guarantee of authenticity and refund Johnson’s money, even though they believe the 12 items are actually genuine. But Johnson did not return the autographs to RR so they could issue refunds.

Johnson does not dispute that. In Paragraphs 14 & 15 of his March 6, 2015 declaration, Johnson states:

14. Also, Defendant claims that I somehow did not meet a condition of the guarantee because I allegedly did not return the items to RR Auction. But this argument is also misleading. RR Auction’s “guarantee” between 2008 and 2012 did not state a buyer had to return an autographed item that was found to be a forgery to RR Auction before a refund is due. Nor did the RR guarantee between 2008 and 2012 require a buyer who purchased an autographed item from RR Auction that was later found to be a forgery to send the item(s) first to RR Auction before that buyer could get a refund. Instead, the RR Auction guarantee stated that RR Auction, “may ask the buyer to provide documentation” from the third party authenticator who deemed the autographed a forgery.

15. Nor did RR Auction’s guarantee state between 2008 and 2012 that RR Auction or any of its employees or owners had to physically see or inspect the items first before a refund was given that buyer. Similarly, RR Auction’s guarantee did not state that Defendant had to “determine” or “verify” that the forged item the buyer was requesting a refund on was purchased from RR Auction as a condition precedent to honoring the guarantee.

He is the first person in RR’s history, the company says, to demand a refund while also refusing to return the goods in question.

Johnson set up a website for the lawsuit last fall, rrauctionlawsuit.com, to try to get other California clients of RR to join the class action. He posted the deposition videos of R&R managers, something rarely done in active lawsuits, and an ever-growing list of people whose video depositions he threatened to take, including Autograph magazine’s publisher and community manager of Autograph Magazine Live, Steven Cyrkin.

Johnson’s pleadings claimed that at least 1,000 Californians purchased autographs from RR between 2008-2012 and were potential members of the class. It turns out there were only 393. Twelve of them had contacted RR with authenticity concerns during that period. All 9 who asked a refund under the guarantee got one.

In February Things Got a Little Weird

On February 6 of this year, Johnson’s lawyer Dugan Kelley started to email settlement demands to R&R attorney, Keith Attlesey, threatening to go to the national press, including The Boston Globe, ESPN and The New York Daily News, if RR Auction didn’t settle for $1,250,000 within a week.

The settlement demands escalated weekly, and were scheduled to increase to $5 million before the March 13 hearing to certify the class action.

In a February 24 email to Attlesey, stating that the then-settlement demand of $2,750,000 would expire in three days, Kelley wrote “I have recently come into information bearing on criminal activity as well.”

Livingston calls the emails “litigation by extortion.”

On March 6, Kelley filed a 119-page declaration that entered as evidence hearsay statements from a 2008 affidavit by former RR employee Karen Burris accusing RR of fraud. What Kelley didn’t reveal was that Burris wrote the affidavit after R&R fired her when they discovered that she and her husband, William Burris, had embezzled what would turn out to be more than $450,000 from the company between 2004-2008. R&R filed a police report within a few days after her firing.

Karen Burris committed suicide shortly thereafter. RR Auction eventually settled their lawsuit against Burris’ husband and the police ended their investigation after he paid back a portion of the money.

In the same pleading, Kelley also attached a New York Daily News article about William Boehm, an IT specialist hired by RR to maintain their software. Boehm recently pled guilty to lying to the FBI while employed at an unrelated company, Mastro Auctions, in Chicago. Kelley also added 64 pages from that case into evidence.

“It mattered little to Dugan Kelley that his “information” didn’t supply a scintilla of evidence that RR had engaged in criminal behavior, beyond the hearsay, inadmissible allegations Karen Burris made as a bargaining chip after she was caught,” said Livingston.

Livingston calls the whole lawsuit a set-up. “Johnson clearly wasn’t interested in just a refund.”

Johnson has filed nine different civil actions over the last 25 years, including suing his sister and brother-in-law.

While he could continue the lawsuit against RR on his own, Johnson has lost the ability for it to be class action. Judge Geck ruled that even if there were other aggrieved parties, each memorabilia item is different and authenticated differently, and therefore it would be up to individuals to file suit. A class action needs a similar product and a similar problem to go forth.

RR’s attorney filed objections during the hearing to the Burris and Boehm pleadings, in expectation of a Johnson appeal.

Asked about the outcome, one of Johnson’s other lawyers, Matthew Clarke, expressed disappointment but said “Mr. Johnson is dedicated to the case.”

The law firm later sent out a press release, stating that “In spite of the Court’s ruling on class certification, Mr. Johnson and his attorneys, Christman, Kelley & Clarke PC, are moving forward with Mr. Johnson’s lawsuit against R&R Auction.”

But RR Auction was relieved after hearing Judge Geck’s ruling. A troublesome chapter in its history has ended.

“We’re very pleased with the outcome,” said Keith Attlesey after the decision. “It puts to rest a lot of attacks that Johnson and others have made against RR Auction’s sterling reputation.”

What Whitney Houston’s Last Autographs Reveal

By Kathi McKnight,
Master Certified Expert Handwriting Analyst

Whitney Houston signing her last documented autograph, Thursday, Feb. 9, 2012.

 

Whitney Houston

Raw Talent, Big Presence, Troubled Handwriting

The music world and fans were stunned and saddened by the sudden death on February 11 of Whitney Houston .

Despite tumultuous public battles with addictions and substance abuse, she will be remembered most of all for her legendary, extraordinary voice. But while her voice expressed the heavenly gift deep in her soul, her handwriting reveals the demons she struggled with.

Join me now in taking an exclusive look at what was going on deep inside this beloved Pop Diva’s soul in the final hours of her life, via the insights her very own handwriting reveals.

Whitney Houston February 9, 2012

Two days before her unexpected death, TMZ and paparazzi captured Whitney signing her last two documented autographs. Disheveled looking, she wasn’t the Whitney we were used to seeing.

 

Whitney's Houston's first album, and one of the last two she signed.

Whitney's first album, and one of the last two she signed.

One autograph she signed was on her first album, “Whitney Houston,” a top seller. The cover shows Whitney looking sleek and divine like the goddess of pop music that she was.

But her handwriting…was a mess. You don’t have to be a certified graphologist to see the writing on the wall.

Were there any clues in those final autographs to give a warning that she had just given her last performance? Revealing that for Whitney Houston, the final curtain had just come down?

It had been so many years since Whitney included a smiley face in her autographs, yet on this night, where her final performance was captured at the Tru Nightclub in Hollywood, she signed her autographs with a smiley face superimposed over her signature.

She wanted the world to see her as happy, like in the old days. Tangled and illegible her autograph reveals much more than meets the eye.

Come with me for an insider’s look.
I’ll teach you how to read between the lines.

Our signature, autograph, our John Hancock—whatever you want to call it—is our personal logo. It is the public profile we want the world to see.

While it must be noted that no one can be fully known or analyzed by just their signature alone, and that full handwriting samples are strongly recommended for a full analysis, do not dismiss the power a signature carries.

The signature is just the tip of the iceberg, and what does show up, can carry 3-5 times the weight of importance compared to the rest of one’s handwriting.

Think of it this way:  What if those on the Titanic had paid attention to the tip of the iceberg? Would the fate of those on board have turned out differently?

 

Signatures: When they are legible the writer is willing to let you see him or her. They are interested in communicating.

When the signature is illegible (as many super stars’ are) it means they only will let you in so far to see them. And they don’t really want you to know who they are. You are not invited in past a certain point. It also means they may have found a fast way to sign their name if they have to sign their name a LOT.

Many celebrities and “regular folk” too, sign their name with the first letter much larger than the rest of the writing; especially if they tend to be successful in business. This is commonly known to reveal a writer who has a “healthy ego” and it is generally accepted. Most people realize it takes a strong sense of self to be successful in the world at large.

Keep in mind, there are no mistakes in handwriting.

Handwriting does not lie.

 

There are over 5,000 things that handwriting reveals about the person being analyzed, and only about things that it doesn’t:

  • It does not predict the future.
  • It does not tell the age of the signer.
  • It does not tell the gender.
  • And it does not tell if the signer is right handed or left handed.

(The last one surprises everyone!)

What we look at as a professional graphologist are the upper loops, the lower loops, the size, the pressure, where the t’s are dotted, where the i’s are crossed, if the writing is rounded or pointed, the slant, where it is placed on the page and soooo much more.

Then…we stack all of these things together!

Whitney Houston's last autograph on a 12-inch single.

Looking at Whitney’s final autographs above, if you didn’t see the picture or know it was her name ahead of time, would you be able to read this signature?

No.

Me neither.

I’m a handwriting analyst, not a mind reader.

Do you see the check-mark far above the letter i? That is her i dot and it reveals annoyance and irritation. Yet she is putting on a happy face (or so she thinks) with a very sloppy attempt at superimposing a smiley face. She had been drinking when she autographed these pictures. Even still, she wrote uphill which usually means optimism. She was feeling high and having a good time. Some say when writing is slanted so epically up hill, the writer is trying hard to deny and overcome depression.

Notice the height of the letters in these two autographs. I’m not talking just about the first letter of her name. I’m referring to any and all letter that naturally go into the upper zone, in this case the “h” and “t”. When letters reaching into the upper zone are more than 3 times the height of the middle zone, it is an indicator of vanity.

No big deal you say? After all, if anyone had reason to be vain, it would be Whitney Houston. Gorgeous, rich, beloved, talented beyond reason, all true.

Michael Jackson had the trait of vanity in his autographs and hand-writings too.

In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, Houston shared her feelings about performing with Michael Jackson at his 30th-anniversary special in 2001 saying it opened her eyes, that she saw him as a “mirror” because he reflected her own issues with addictions. “I just remember doing the anniversary special and I remember looking at Michael and I remember looking at myself and I was getting scared looking at him,” she said. “I was looking at myself. I don’t want it to be like this. Mike and I were very close.”

While there are quite a few other factors found in these autographs, look at the height of some of the letters in “Whitney.” They are disproportionately tall compared to the other letters. You could go mountain climbing over those tall letters.

In handwriting analysis when a person unconsciously writes strokes and letters that are disproportionally tall in their height compared to the rest of the writing (specifically compared to the middle zone letters) it is a clear indicator of vanity.

And this seems to be the crux of her demise. It is one of the more unfortunate and potent traits that were setting her up for a fall.

When vanity is discovered in handwriting, it reveals a writer who prefers high achievement to emotional satisfaction. There is arrogance and a dogmatic approach to living life. The writer has intense pride in herself and what she has achieved. But here is the kicker:

Rejection can cause acute anxiety to
the person with vanity in their writing.

This trait of vanity as it is discovered in handwriting means the writer is enslaved to adoration, constant praise and attention. They are the most susceptible to flattery out of all the other traits found in handwriting.

In my new book,  What the Final Autographs of Whitney Houston Reveal: Sizzling Secrets in her Script, I trace Whitney’s handwriting from the early days in the 1980s-90s when her career was at its peak…clear up to the bitter end. Her autographs over the years reveal an autobiography rich in surprises and the pivotal moments are revealed when she could have gone one way or the other.

There was a time when she seemed to have an angel on one shoulder and the Devil on the other.

However the trait of vanity was always present, even in the early days, back in 1990’s, when she autographed this picture. This woman with the voice of an angel was battling many demons.

Whitney Houston back in the 1990s.

You could practically read the autograph back then, but sadly the writing reveals a strong indicator of self doubt as is evidenced by the ending stroke of the letter y moving up, over and to the left as she uses that stroke to cross her letter t. It also serves as a protective bubble over her name. This and more uncovers her feelings of self protectiveness, self doubt and much more.

Pride that accompanies vanity makes it difficult to admit the need for anyone else, even God himself. Pride feeds the illusion that we are completely independent and self-sufficient. Whitney never fully “got” it. “A vital part of overcoming alcohol addiction drug abuse, codependency or baggage from the past that may make you susceptible to a lifestyle of pain and suffering is finding spirituality in recovery (beliefs), or a strength greater than yourself.” “The more faith you put in the spiritual relationship and the more you trust the guidance without using human logic, the greater will be the results in your life.” Spirituality in Addiction Rehabilitation

It’s ironic. The song she sang so passionately held the answers all along.

But a beat was skipped and now the curtain has gone down for the final time.

 

Greatest Love of All

I believe the children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be

Everybody’s searching for a hero
People need someone to look up to
I never found anyone who fulfilled my needs
A lonely place to be
So I learned to depend on me

[Chorus:]
I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone’s shadows
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I’ll live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can’t take away my dignity
Because the greatest love of all
Is happening to me
I found the greatest love of all
Inside of me
The greatest love of all
Is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself
It is the greatest love of all

I believe the children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier

Let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be

[Chorus]

And if, by chance, that special place
That you’ve been dreaming of
Leads you to a lonely place
Find your strength in love
