Item 8.01. Other Events.
On October 23, 2017 Mentor Capital moved the Federal District Court in Utah to reconsider its ruling granting partial summary adjudication to the plaintiffs in the case pending there. Mentor concludes its brief that:
“New evidence shows that Plaintiffs’ asserted facts (disputed by Mentor) are untrustworthy. Mentor reasserts its objections to Plaintiffs’ unverified Complaint and the declarations and exhibits attached to their reply memorandum as evidence in support of their Motion.
“Because (i) several material facts on which the Order was based are incorrect, (ii) Mentor discovered substantial new facts showing a genuine material dispute as to the privity element of Count I, (iii) the Order is manifestly unjust to the thousands of Mentor creditors operating under the Plan for the last 17 years, and (vi) the statute of repose ran in 2003 for any §12 claim related to securities issued under Mentor’s bankruptcy, Mentor’s motion for reconsideration of the Order should be granted. The Order should be vacated and Plaintiffs’ Motion should be denied.”
Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits.
Mentor attaches hereto as Exhibit 99.1 its Memorandum of Points and Authorities requesting reconsideration of the Court’s September 25, 2017 Order; as Exhibit 99.2 the Declaration of Paul Marotta in Support of Mentor Capital, Inc.’s Motion for Reconsideration (without exhibits); as Exhibit 99.3 the Declaration of Chet Billingsley in Support of Mentor Capital, Inc.’s Motion for Reconsideration (without exhibits); as Exhibit 99.4 the Declaration of Megan Jeanne in Support of Mentor Capital, Inc.’s Motion for Reconsideration (without exhibits); and as Exhibit 99.5 its Request for Judicial Notice in Support of Mentor Capital, Inc.’s Motion for Reconsideration (with the December 29, 2016 Judgment attached).
