Is the law paying attention or are these just words to make you THINK such laws exist?
Comment from Jackie Keenan:
On or about 8-19-02 an undocumented hearing was held. We had asked for a Court Reporter to attend the hearing but Mr. Castro took it upon himself to cancel the court reporter. Judge Hart said, 'We don't need a Court reporter for today'. After the brief hearing in which no agreement was reached, the parties met while Judge Hart waited. The meeting included Isaac Castro (attorney for John Denison), Glenn Karisch probate attorney (attorney for Bob Denison). John Denison was not present. Mr. Castro told the Court he had authority to negotiate for John in John's behalf. Mr. Karisch was widely acclaimed as an attorney who was knowledgeable about probate law. Mr. Karisch had contributed substantially in the writing of the most recent laws for the Texas Probate Code. He is highly respected and has great integrity.
New negotiations took place. Returning to the Court in front of Judge Hart (remember no court reporter was present) Mr. Castro agreed to draft the new terms and distribute them to all and the hearing was adjourned. (No draft ever emerged from Mr. Castro. He fell of the radar screen until it was necessary to respond to Bob's November 22, 2002 amended motion withdrawing his consent and to set aside the mediated settlement that occurred in May 2002.
The same day, on August 19, 2002 Castro turned the keys over to Bob. For the first time in years Bob was given full access to the Rayner Courthouse, the property that was agreed to be awarded to Bob debt free in lieu of the illegally encumbered 6200 acres of land. Bob was told during the mediation by Mr. Castro that Bob could NOT view the property because John's wife was ill with female problems and could not be disturbed. At the mediation in May Mr. Castro represented the condition of the house to be habitable and insurable, attesting the house was in the same condition when Bob viewed it in 2000. Mr. Castro made the claim that 'if the house was not insured he would see to it, it was insured'. Mr. Castro arranged for Evans Insurance of Hamlin, TX (who also was the insurer for the bank when John defaulted on the brand new Pickup in which Hamlin National Bank gave the estate a loan to in 1999 along with a $550,000 loan that encumbered the bulk of the ranch), known as the WEST RANCH, encumbering 6,200 acres. (Refer to Insurance Fraud page for facts on this issue)
Bob, myself and Mr. Karisch for the first time went to the Rayner Courthouse on 8-19-02 to view it after meeting with Mr. Castro. As part of the mediation on 5-28-02, John claimed to have lived in the Rayner Courthouse up until the end of June 2002.
It was disgraceful. The condition of the Rayner Courthouse was deplorable. There was a gaping hole in the roof upstairs in which rain had poured in ruining valuable historical papers and was wrought with mold and mildew. The upper level exterior porch was dilapidated and a great deal of wood rot was there. The interior walls had been spray painted with 666 on them; trash was so abundant that you could literally not find footing on the down stairs level. The house was not even close to insurable condition; more fraud after the mediation. Refer to the Photo page for the condition John Denison left the house in.
This is a 2 story 1888 Authentic Courthouse that was purchased by Bob's great grandfather in the early 1900's. It was later converted to a ranch home in the 50's. The home was so well known in West Texas that when they made the movie GIANT it was used as the inspiration for the ranch house in the movie GIANT. Please refer to the home page to view the photo taken of the building in 1888.
It is important you, as a forensic visitor view the magnitude of the trash found in the Rayner Courthouse and judge for yourself if it could have been left in Broom Swept condition, with no trash existing on the place as Johnny Denison proclaimed in his only deposition taken in April 2008 FINALLY. Equally as important John and already confiscated with all of the valuable antiques, collectables, jewelry, photos, all assets of any redeeming value, had disappeared. What remained were nasty broken chairs and mountains of trash.
Though Bob did not accept possession, it was evident some care in the preservation of the property was necessary. In 2005 I suggested to Bobby that we go to the property in the interest of protecting it from elements and that we remove the trash and try to determine what if anything was left by John that may have had value. It is shocking and worth the viewing of the photos. In order not to busy up this page with the photos I have them placed under Photos on the menu.
On November 2, 2010 after the sheriff's sale forced on Bob, I asked John what happened to all their mother's possessions. John Denison said to Bobby, 'I am a Christian. Bobby, you used to be a Christian', and he looked at me and said "I don't know about her. But she is the one that trashed the house, not me. I left it in Broom Swept Condition and Isaac was my witness."
November 2, 2010 was the day that Bob's remaining portion of 1250 acres was sold on the Courthouse steps to satisfy the judgment against placed against him by Judge Steven Ables for Bob to pay John's attorney Isaac Castro and Boone Pickens attorneys, hired by Alamo Title Insurance company to the tune of $750,000.00.

Attn: Federal Investigator
We've all heard the saying "the devil is in the details." Andrew Ottaway is the son in law of Dorothy Dickerson, owner of Consolidated Abstract, agent for Alamo Title in Stonewall County,
Glenn Gehan is a major homebuilder in Texas. Bill Rose is a licensed real estate broker and developer who had lots in the Dallas area (maybe Ft. Worth or a neighboring community). Based on information and belief Gehan purchased lots from Bill Rose. Bill Rose (4848 Aspermont, LLC) was the end buyer of the Ranch land in question owned by the Ida Baldwin Denison estate, fraudulently sold to Boone Pickens by John Denison.
Bob Perry, large Texas Homebuilder, Centex Homes, too is a major home builder in Texas and other states. Shaul Barouch, Dallas Developer was partners with Craig Glendenning (See Choctaw Contract). The Choctaw Maiden Contract was just too full of contradictions and suspicions in my opinion.
With respect to Title Insurance companies, Alamo Title Insurance, Chicago Title Insurance, Lawyers Title all owned by Fidelity National Financial, Inc.
What about the lending institutions making loans for these builders? Are they all tied together somehow? It is supposedly illegal to induce a buyer to use any particular lender, but at the same time it is no secret that if you don't use their recommended lender the buyer is penalized 2% of the loan amount.
USDA is now getting into the game. Should this too be investigated? Too many USDA loans financed the land fraudulently acquired by Boone Pickens.
Bob Perry is reputedly known to have the capability to buy judges through his substantial campaign donations. (See Cast of Characters) Though he maintains a very behind the scenes profile in politics it is no secret he is the largest contributor in Texas politics. It doesn't take a stretch of the imagination to think perhaps builder funds could be dare I say "laundered" by other large homebuilders in Texas affiliated with the Texas Home Builders Association. The need for Transparency in Government and Politics is what has been cried out by the people in our Nation. Too much money has been funneled here and there and yon without a full and complete investigation as to the sources. My disclaimer: this is speculation on my part but too many dots can be easily connected if one should lift the covers of the sheets. An investigation does indeed need to be performed. I am not claiming one way or the other. It just needs to be fully investigated.
Many dollars were donated to Governor Rick Perry by Boone Pickens, supported by the Texas Homebuilders Association and by Bob Perry. I believe there is more behind the scenes and all should be fully investigated. The people in question all were associated with each other. Are they guilty by association? That is for the Federal Investigators to find out. "Let Transparency Reign for us all."

Kathleen Kernwein is the Realtor named on the contract for 4848 Aspermont selling to Choctaw Maiden, LLP. Although Rechelle Maley signed the 4.47 Million Dollar Contract between 4848 Aspermont, the email address for the buyer was Craig@postoakdevelopment.com. Kathleen spent several years learning all aspects of Real Estate working with a Local San Antonio Developer and Broker, Post Oak Development of Texas.
As of January 2010 she was the broker for a company named Exquisite Properties, LLC, now she is the managing broker for RK Realty Group per internet data.
There was an 'approved by the Bankruptcy Court for 4848 Aspermont' a listing agreement with Brooks Land Gallery out of Stephenville (friend of Melvin Hammitt), to expire 2-28-10. Yet Kathleen Kernwein's name was the only real estate company listed on the contract between 4848 Aspermont and Choctaw.
The contract was written on the Realtors Zipform contracts which indicates what real estate company drafted the contract. This document shows it was drafted by the Debtor principal 4848 Aspermont, Mr. Rose (W.R. Rose Investments) a real estate Broker. The contract was undated and not signed by both sellers yet Judge Jernigan of the Dallas Bankruptcy Court allowed this contract in and approved of it. In order to perhaps deceive the court the word Energy has been omitted from the title of the buyer's name because the Judge had been told this was not about energy.
As early as January 2010 When you try to visit the website for Post Oak Development www.postoakdevelopment.com NOTHING COMES UP IT IS TOTALLY BLANK. Information confirmed again on 1-22-11 so it has remained so for a full year, at best.
Rechelle Maley was the name on the papers to form Choctaw Maiden Energy, LLC, but it was Craig Glendenning who was the contact person. Based on information and belief, Craig Glendenning and William Rose already had a relationship. There may also be connections with Gehan Homes and Perry Homes (Glenn Gehan and Bob Perry). Records now show that Rechelle Maley is now Rechelle Glendenning and is the owner of Choctaw Maiden Energy, LLC. Please be sure to compare the name on the contract of the seller to the true LLC.
