We will write more on this later, but we are pleased to announce that — six years after we first filed in State Court, and nearly four years after we moved the case to Federal Court — on Tuesday of this week Federal U.S. District Court Judge Douglas R. Cole certified our firm’s RICO and breach of fiduciary duty claims against the following Defendants as a class action:
- Build Realty, Inc.
- Edgar Construction, LLC
- Cincy Construction, LLC
- McGregor Construction, LLC
- Cowtown Holdings, LLC
- Build NKY, LLC
- Greenleaf Support Services, LLC
- Build SWO, LLC
- Gary Bailey (as trustee and individually)
- George Triantafilou (as trustee and individually)
- G2 Technologies, LLC
- GT Financial, LLC
- Five Mile Capital Partners, LLC
- First Title Agency, LLC
In doing so, Judge Cole certified all victims of the alleged RICO and breach of fiduciary duty scheme as class members and certified a sub-class of investors who had their properties improperly taken away by scheme participants.
A class notice is being negotiated and should be sent to class members within the coming month or so. If you have an updated physical address or email address please email it to Chris@FinneyLawFirm.Com and we will try to keep you updated on developments.
This is a major victory for victims of this scheme, but we have many miles to trial to achieve final justice in this matter. We will endeavor to keep the public updated through this blog.

Our able co-counsel in this case is Bill Markovits and the firm of Markovits, Stock and DeMarco.
