Alex asked Casey whether it was cash on Casey’s coffee table. Casey said s/he had to go and closed the door in Alex’s face. 12. The next day, Alex called the offices of the Pearson Precision Corp. to speak with Peyton Pearson on his/her first day back in the office after s/he had returned home from his/her trip to Europe. Alex described his/her encounter with Casey Cheatham the previous day and told Peyton that s/he was now convinced that Casey had stolen money from the Fun Fair proceeds that Peyton had entrusted to Casey’s care. Peyton answered that this was nonsense. According to Peyton, Casey had delivered to him/her that morning a full accounting of those proceeds and, upon Peyton’s instruction, had deposited the cash in a special account that Peyton had created solely for those funds at the Empire of New York Bank. According to Peyton, the Fun Fair profits had amounted to $98,200.00, derived mostly from the sale of ride tickets. 13. Incredulous, Alex then called Taylor Templeton, a Shoreline Downs blackjack dealer who had overseen the operation of the games of chance at the Fun Fair. Morningside Heights is a tight-knit community, and Taylor happened to be a sibling of Casey’s former spouse, Shannon Templeton. When Alex reported how much Casey had allegedly delivered to Peyton Pearson, Taylor immediately expressed concern. Based on the magnitude of the bets that Taylor had seen

In response, Alex and Taylor arranged to visit the Morningside Heights Police Department on September 18, 2013, to file a criminal larceny complaint against Casey Cheatham. After recounting their suspicions about Casey to Toni Tuesday, the Desk Lieutenant on duty, Lieutenant Tuesday told Alex and Taylor that absent of more concrete information proving that Casey had in fact stolen money that belonged to the Booster Club, the Morningside Heights Police would not likely take action against Casey and that Alex’s and Taylor’s grievances against Casey constituted a civil matter. Indeed, no criminal charges have been filed against Casey Cheatham concerning his/her stewardship of any funds earned during the course of the Fun Fair. 15. At the next meeting of the Booster Club’s Board of Directors on October 1, 2013, Taylor Templeton, upon Alex Aldrich’s invitation, gave a presentation as to why s/he believed that Casey Cheatham had under-reported the proceeds earned from the games of chance at the Fun Fair, given Taylor’s personal observation of those games’ operation. Alex further recounted his visit to Casey Cheatham’s house, and how s/he had seen the stacks of cash on Casey’s coffee table. Peyton Pearson reacted angrily in response. Peyton charged that Taylor was lying simply to retaliate against Casey for having divorced Taylor’s sibling, Shannon Templeton. In any event, Peyton claimed Casey had recently inherited $500,000 from his/her favorite Aunt Mabel

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
