Wife & alleged mistress of Precious Martin slug it out in court.

 State Farm v. Crystal Martin and Brandi Barnett will probably be the legacy of the now-deceased Precious Martin as his wife and Brandi Barnett both dispute who should be the proper beneficiary of a  $500,272 life insurance policy held by Mr. Martin that named Ms. Barnett as the beneficiary. Crystal Martin also said Ms. Barnett lived in a home owned by Precious Martin and accused her of "seducing" her husband as she sued her for alienation of affection. The case has been assigned to Judge Henry Wingate. 


State Farm filed a complaint for interpleader in U.S. District Court on September 18, 2014. Mr. Martin was killed earlier this year in a four-wheeler accident in Ridgeland. His wife and three children survived his death. State Farm asked the court to determine the proper beneficiary of the policy as Mrs. Martin disputed the validity of Ms. Barnett's claim. Mr. Martin purchased the policy in May 2013. Mrs. Martin argued Ms. Barnett had no "insurable interest". The insurer offered to deposit the amount with the court when the court approves such action.

Ms. Barnett responded to the complaint and accused State Farm of improperly contacting Mrs. Martin about the policy and withholding payment of her claim in bad faith.  She was employed by Mr. Martin as a bookkeeper.  Attorney Nick Norris represents Ms. Barnett. Not to be outdone in legal charms, Mrs. Martin filed her own answer to State Farm and a cross-claim against Brandi Barnett.

Crystal Martin stated in her amended cross-claim:

In January of 2014, Crystal Wise Martin became aware that Brandi Barnett, the bookkeeper at Precious Martin, Sr. & Associates Law Firm, the place of employment of Precious Martin and Crystal Martin, had seduced and continued to recklessly engage in certain solicitous conduct and activities with Precious Martin. Unbeknownst to Crystal Martin, Brandi Barnett resided in Hinds County, Mississippi in a home owned by a Limited Liability Company in which Precious Martin was the sole member and provided to Barnett by Precious Martin. At the time of said solicitous conduct by Barnett, Precious and Crystal Martin resided together with their children in Madison County, Mississippi.

5. On May 11, 2014, Precious Martin tragically died in an ATV accident while riding in his Madison County, Mississippi neighborhood. Subsequent to Mr. Martin’s death, Crystal Martin learned that the application for the State Farm Premium Term Life Insurance Policy purchased by Precious Martin named Brandi Barnett as the primary beneficiary.

6. The home provided to Barnett by Martin as well as the naming of Barnett as the beneficiary of Martin’s State Farm Life Insurance policy are the results of Barnett’s actions in seducing Precious Martin and engaging in and encouraging a continuing elicit relationship between Barnett and Precious Martin for the purposes of receiving material benefits from Precious Martin. Barnett seduced Precious Martin and encouraged and pursued a continuing sexual relationship with Precious Martin for the purpose of unduly influencing Precious Martin to provide material benefits to Brandi Barnett that should have been given to Crystal Wise Martin and her children, including but not limited to exerting undue influence on Precious Martin to name Brandi Barnett as the beneficiary in his application for Precious Martin’s State Farm Life Insurance Policy.

Mrs. Martin then sued Ms. Barnett for alienation of affection:

Cross-Defendant Brandi Barnett seduced Precious Martin and induced, persuaded and encouraged Precious Martin to engage in an extra-marital affair and sexual relationship with her. Brandi Barnett engaged in such solicitous activity culminating in a sexual relationship with Precious Martin with full knowledge that Precious Martin was married to Crystal Martin with children. Brandi Barnett’s actions were wrongful in that she seduced Precious Martin with full knowledge of his marital relationship with Crystal Martin, her employer, and induced and encouraged Precious Martin to engage in a sexual relationship outside of his marriage and continuously encouraged Precious Martin to abandon his marriage and family and affection for Crystal Martin.....

 The Cross-Defendant’s wanton and reckless interference with the marriage, destruction of family values and her actions of un-condoned adultery with the Cross-Plaintiff’s husband was accompanied with her continuous encouragement for Precious Martin to leave the marriage and be with the Cross-Defendant, as well as encouragement to provide material assets to the Cross-Defendant including a home and the benefits of a State Farm Life Insurance Policy, as well as concealment of her actions from the Cross-Plaintiff and others further justifying punitive damages against the Cross-Defendant.....

Mrs. Martin also accused Ms. Barnett of committing the tort of intentional infliction of emotional distress.  She asked for compensatory damages, punitive damages, and legal fees.  She also requested a trial by jury.  Attorney Chuck McRae represents Mrs. Martin.

Kingfish note: It appears Precious Martin still has the ability to stir things up, even in death.

Curious. Is Brandi white?

So, Mrs. Distinguished Counselor-at-Law doesn't know the difference between "elicit" and "illicit"? I agree with 9:48 :-)

Also, does this mean she is too busy to pursue her BS lawsuit against Saint Andrew's?

She actually MIGHT get a shred of sympathy if she made her major point that the funds diverted to the mistress should have been used for the support of several dependent children, who have been deprived of their father and now financial support; I don't know anyone who cares if she herself starves, which she brought on herself. It's a shame the kids suffer because the parents are/were jackasses.

Nope.

Getting ready to comment on the nature of the "continuing elicit relationship" (page 2 of the second doc) and I've been treed by 11:13.

What's the name of the LLC? Gotsum LLC? (fun with the bookkeeping aspect)



Anonymous said...

Total amount of any diversion of funds (assuming there is a legal issue with this expenditure of the Martin's funds)... wouldn't that be the total insurance premiums paid? Said amount shouldn't be that large unless there were high risk health or lifestyle issues...

What's the law on this concept?

Example of concept: Steal $20.00 from a grocery store, buy $15.00 gas and $5.00 lottery tickets, then those tickets win $5,000,000, how much did you steal from the grocery store now? Still $20.00 or now $5,000,000? Or is it $5,000,020.

Sorry, but the Precious one knew what he was doing. He wasn't coerced. Paying for a life insurance policy was his definitive act of purposely making sure the girlfriend was taken care of.

"Let It Go"

I have to agree with 5:32. It was fairly common knowledge that there was another woman in Martin's life. Martin is not innocent nor was he likely the one seduced. As to his health issues, he was, at one time, an extremely overweight person. Enough to have been called morbidly obese, in my opinion. Interesting that wife discovered infidelity in January, was devotedly beside husband at time of late Mayor's death and continued to reside with Martin until his accidental death. Could the bullying problems at school have been caused by comments about father?

Anonymous said...

Agree. 5:32. There's no way in hell anyone made or coerced Precious to buy this life insurance. He did it because he wanted to provide for this other woman for some reason if he died. He paid the premium obviously, and whoever he named the beneficiary should get the money. If Precious wanted his wife to get the money he would have named her the beneficiary. He didn't.

Unless there is a will and he left the house to Barnett (anything is possible) it looks like Precious left Crystal with just over $7000 in unpaid property taxes. The upside for Crystal may be that she gets to kick Barnett to the street.

But then again, some people's sh*t don't stink, huh?

Anonymous said...

Women aside, that's pathetic to leave your kids out. Whether he gave two shits about the Mom or not, it's ridiculous to not provide for them in the event of your death. How many kids did they have? Wasn't one with him when he died? I can't remember.

Again, like her or not, now there's a drastic change in income and she has to support the kids on her own or with family help because this guy thought he'd show her and leave it to his mistress, whom he's already bought a house for.

Wrong priorities.

Anonymous said...

Sounds like a plain case of adultery. Though embarrassing for the wife, the man evidently thought enough of the mistress to provide for her after his death. The truth hurts, but he made his choices. In no way am I defending the mistress, but it sounds as though the marriage was technically over a long time ago. His death just put the final nail in the coffin.

Anonymous said...

"A Better World" at 9:09 AM, What the eff does this have to do with the black community as a whole? Are black people the only people who have affairs and gives benefits to a mistress? If a white person has an affair and gives something to the mistress is the an exemplar of the moral character of the white community? People who think like you are an example of what's rotten with this country.

The house in south Jackson according to Zillow is 1600+ sq feet and worth maybe $150,000 tops. No purchase history listed.

Found a roofing company with the same address. Wonder if the girlfriend also does roofs?

So what I am wondering is it customary for an insurance company to contact a family member about a life insurance policy when this person is not listed as the beneficiary? In this case there's no disputing he died accidently in his own neighborhood.

Anonymous said...

What reason would State Farm have had to make Crystal aware of the policy? Could some State Farm insider have leaked it out?
If so that employee may be asking for a job at Precious Martin and Associates.

Malcolm got a few Uncle Tom votes which he blamed on Thursday nighters.

Who Provides It said...

3:40; I believe you are incorrect in suggesting that the estate executor must be contacted in order to secure a death certificate. The executor is not required (nor does encouragement exist)to provide death certificates to insurance companies seeking to pay out on policies. It may be in that person's best interest to do so, but there is no obligation to do it.

Anonymous said...

According to the scuttlebutt around the courthouse, Precious' mistress was pregnant, so it would make perfect sense that he would provide an insurance policy for his baby's momma.

I don't understand the dislike on here for Crystal. She is a very nice person who was married to a domineering jerk and is left to care for four young children on her own.

According to NPR, the non-married rate for whites has doubled since 1960. How do you defend those numbers?

Anonymous said...

7:02 - just for future reference. When you start your comment that assumes and then condemns with a "who's to say...." the rest of your thoughts mean nothing.

Sure, I could - even would - assume that there were other insurance policies. So what? That doesn't change the fact that precious Precious bought one for his baby mama - not the baby mama that he was living with at the time along with his four kids. But the one that was going to be for one of his many 'yard chillun'.

I don't know whether Crystal will get any of this $500k or not. Or whether she and her 'alienation attorney' will succeed on this ancient law because baby mama 'seduced' precious Precious. But the good news is a bunch of lawyers will make good money from a bunch of lawyers (Martins) that have been sucking at the teat of Hinds Countians for way too many years.

Since you decided to pounce upon 11:52PM you are owed one as well. Please refrain from criticizing others unless you can do better. "referene" is not a word. Referee and reference are and one has to assume to you were trying to type "reference" and you spittle-laden keyboard omitted the "c." However, the word reference is probably incorrectly used. If one were being asked to provide documentation for their opinion, one would "proffer" it.

On another note, why would Crystal Wise Martin allow herself to engage with the foolish Malcolm Johnson? This Sanford and Sons radio show does not represent Martin & Associates Law Firm very well. I don't want an Aunt Esther type representing me.
Hasn't her mom, the good judge, told her so?

Not a J.D. type -- but I am a woman. Might want to figure in the idiosyncrasies of the jury. We common folk. People are going to serve, who do not know any of the "players" in this one act drama, like many people on the blog.

What they MIGHT see is that yes, the "other woman" receives her State Farm Life Insurance settlement because it is contractually appropriate, BUT.........she is deemed guilty in court of alienation of affection, and has a compensatory or punitive award....of say $500k. I think it's called splitting the baby. Maybe $250k since Precious, who seems to be the prototype of a scumbag, and was splitting his time equally.

Juries are funny things.....I served on one, and at the end of the day, they can be mighty smart folks, who attempt to apply common sense based on the "law".

Doesn't seem to be anyone here who is "right" or has a moral high ground, with the exception of teh children, who have lost their father (albeit what type of father is still to be discerned).

6:18 PM, 1:00 here. I knew that the number for blacks had quadrupled while the number for whites has "only" doubled. I referenced the figure for whites in response to the posters implication that minority men don't get married.

9:20 -- Because we as a society have supported bad cultural decisions in minority communities (through WIC, EBT payments, etc.), now the "glamour" of being a Baby Mama and the sadness that young men are not accountable is evident across the board. It is coming home to roost in every cultural group/race.

Anthropologically over the centuries, bastards were labelled, targeted...whatever, because they were a drain on the village. Families took care of families, and when a female had a child, without the support of a man in the home.....the village had to take on the care and maintenance of both in addition to their own families, whom they had a CHOICE in making/developing, etc........jump forward centuries -- and substitute care and maintenance with WIC, Housing, etc. We, the village are now taking care of people who cannot take care of themselves because they chose not to assimilate into societal norms which were developed over centuries FOR A BASIC ANTHROPOLOGICAL REASON (security, safety and continuance of the village). When we decided we could not censure bad behavior, for the good of the "village", we ended up with bad behavior taking over the village.

Now -- in the white, Hispanic, and Asian communities it is permeating, just as it did in the black community. WHY NOT? There is an infrastructure now in place to take care of everyone.......for awhile at least.

If by chance u think that Crystal Martin is a SAINT, u have no idea. She is far from it. Yes Precious was a very horrible and hurtful husband but he just maybe he had some reason to be. She is a woman that's was forced into marriage by her parents and motherhood by her decreased husband and she has no mothering skills or the time to be a mother. She would rather spend her time in a court room or vacationing or shopping or anywhere but home with her kids. And that was a big problem to Precious. Precious was a many bad things, but he was a wonderful father and mother to those kids. Now with that been said all if this nonsense that Crystal is doing right now to this lady is out of spite, she knows and she knew that he was a womanizer, she caught him on several different occasion with women. This woman BranNi is NOT the only woman that has received big costly material items and big lump sums of money, so I say to u Crystal let it go cause u will have to sue half of Mississippi to get what u think should be your or is it really about REVENGE?????? Grown up and live life like u have wanted to for so long but couldn't because of his control over u......PLEASE

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
