17. In the evening on September 16, 2013, Alex Aldrich visited Casey Cheatham at home to discuss the proceeds earned from the Fun Fair ride ticket sales and the games of chance. When Casey answered the door, Alex asked for an opportunity to discuss those proceeds, but Casey replied that it was not a good time. From Defendant Cheatham’s porch, Alex thought s/he could see stacks of cash lying on a coffee table about ten feet away and asked whether there was cash on Defendant Cheatham’s coffee table. Casey said s/he had to go and closed the door in Alex’s face. 18. 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 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

63 11/19/14 that Casey had stolen money from the Fun Fair proceeds that Peyton had entrusted to Defendant Cheatham’s care. Peyton answered that Defendant Cheatham 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, those proceeds had amounted to $45,200.00, derived mostly from the sale of ride tickets. 19. Alex then called Taylor Templeton, a Shoreline Downs blackjack dealer, who had overseen the operation of the games of chance at the Fun Fair. 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 placed during the Fun Fair, Taylor believed that the games of chance easily made more than $90,000.00, even accounting for payments to the winners. 20. At the next meeting of the 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 Defendant 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/her visit to Defendant Cheatham’s house and how s/he had seen the stacks of cash on Cheatham’s coffee table. 21. The Club now seeks reimbursement of the Fun Fair proceeds that Casey Cheatham stole and used to fund expensive purchases and support his/her gambling habit. FIRST CAUSE OF ACTION (Conversion) 22. Plaintiff re-alleges and incorporates the allegations made above at ¶¶ 1 through 21 , as if fully set forth herein. 23. Defendant Cheatham was entrusted to gather the proceeds of the specifically identifiable ride ticket sales and the games of chance at the end of each day of the Fun Fair, and to await

    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.
