The key bit in this article is that the reporter tracked down Allan Mooney, who Paul Hansmeier admitted is a former client, and he apparently has no clue that his name is appearing on these documents suggesting he runs Guava LLC and MCGIP LLC.
Allan Mooney, a Minnesotan who has brokered the sale of Internet-based businesses, said he introduced his friend Paul Hansmeier to some contacts in the porn industry. But he denied knowing that he was listed as the “sole organizer” of MCGIP LLC, a plaintiff in at least 20 lawsuits filed by Steele Hansmeier or contract attorneys.Morgan Pietz has already filed the article with the court, even though Mooney is not among the list of folks asked to show up in court (though Alan Cooper is).
Mooney also has been listed in court filings — with his name misspelled — as an agent for an entity called Guava LLC, which is registered in the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis in the West Indies. Guava has been the plaintiff in 21 federal lawsuits since October, including six in Minnesota.
“That would be news to me,” Mooney said. “I’m not involved in any of that type of stuff. I’m more or less a personal trainer.”
