Missouri City man being sued for slander by Cy-Fair company
A Cy-Fair-area company and its officers are suing a Missouri City man for slander.
Compass Pointe Homes, Bobby G. Baillio II, and Gregg Katt filed suit in Harris County District Court on Nov. 16 against Judge Evans, 4011 East Shore, claiming that Evans spread false and malicious statements about their business practices.
In the suit, Compass Pointe's officers say that after Evans was let go as an accountant from Compass Pointe he began to make slanderous statements about the company, Baillio and Katt. According to the suit, Evans made statements suggesting Compass Pointe was a vehicle through which Baillio and Katt evaded paying income tax and that Baillio embezzled, converted and intermingled the funds of the company with his personal income.
Compass Pointe and its officers are seeking actual damages of no less than $100,000 and as high as $25,000,000, as well as exemplary damages of no less than $200,000 and as high as $50,000,000. Additionally, they are seeking pre- and post-judgment interest and all other entitled damages.
Compass Pointe and its officers are being represented in the case by the Tomball lawyer Bruce M. Daniel.
