So are we to assume that after receiving the Grand Traverse Academy money torch from Steven Ingersoll, Mark Noss and his Full Spectrum Management didn't really sever ties “with Smart Schools Management to protect the integrity of Grand Traverse Academy” as he publicly promised in his April 28, 2014 email?
-WITNESS LIST? Those Are My Friends...And Long-Term Business Associates!
The story of Steven Ingersoll's continuing financial and business relationship with Mark Noss is getting more problematic.
Miss Fortune has uncovered evidence (and by 'evidence' I mean court documents that I used to write a series of stories last year!) that indicates Steven Ingersoll violated a no-contact order, issued January 21, 2015 by U. S. District Judge Thomas L. Ludington, when he provided his so-called business management services to Full Spectrum Management, LLC honcho Mark Noss.
Ludington's order, barring Ingersoll from having “contact, whether directly or indirectly, with any witnesses identified by the Government in its witness lists”, denied Ingersoll's January 14, 2015 request to maintain contact with individuals he wished to exempt, including Mark Noss, Craig Johnston, Margo Abbott, Jim Comer, Bruce Christensen, and Patty Engler.
In his January 14 response to the government's December 5, 2014 motion to modify the conditions of his bond, Ingersoll asked that he be allowed to maintain contact with those potential witness due to “a recurring professional and/or personal relationship”.
Hmmm? Interesting. Even if Noss sent a proxy to meet with Ingersoll, that still qualifies as 'indirect' contact.
The feds got the bond modification ball rolling in late 2014. According to details presented in a December 19, 2014 bond revocation hearing, Ingersoll was directly involved in a scheme to serve subpoenas on witnesses in fraud co-defendant Roy Bradley's asbestos mishandling case.
So, if Ingersoll did violate that no-contact order, I'm still puzzled as to what kind of expertise he could have provided to Mark Noss.
If you'd read the April 28, 2014 email Noss sent, introducing himself to the Grand Traverse Academy community, you would have thought he'd hit the ground running and never look back.
Like Lt. Joe Kenda says...my, my, my!
