More Skybox drama

The Skybox drama continues as it's landlord kicked the Northeast Jackson dining establishment to the curb for failure to pay it's rent.  Ridgewood Jackson, LLC sued the Skybox and its owner, Raymond Kersh, in January for failure to pay rent on January 18.  The docket states the summons was served on Mr. Kersh on January 27.  Judge Larita Cooper-Stokes didn't waste any time but approved the eviction after the defendant did not appear for trial.  Her order stated:

the  Defendants,  RAYMOND KERSH individually and SKY BOX OF JACKSON, LLC, both having been duly served with a Summons requiring their attendance in the Hinds County Court, First Judicial  District on  the 17th  day of January, 2017 at 9:30 AM, and a copy of the Complaint, failed to appear for trial. The Court having heard and determined the issues thereof, finds that the Plaintiff, RIDGEWOOD JACKSON MS, LLC, is entitled to possession of the premises described in the Complaint filed herein; and a judgment for monies owed as follows: Rent in arrears including repairs, taxes, late charges and insurance as shown in  Exhibit 'C'  to the complaint of $10,491.37,  plus February  lease charges  of $4,802.06; totaling $15,544.43; plus Court filing fee $161.00; Service of process $90.00;  totaling $15,795.43 and Attorney fees of $5,275.67; for a total judgment of $21,071.10....
AND FURTHER, This Court directs the Circuit Clerk of Hinds County to issue a WRIT OF HABERE FACIAS POSSESSIONEM directing the Sheriff of Hinds County, Mississippi or any lawfully elected Constable to immediately remove said Defendants from the premises ........, change all locks, put a notice on the door that the property is attached, and to put all personal property to the street, or dispose of personal property as prescribed in Mississippi Code of 1972 as annotated in §89-7-31at the discretion of the Plaintiff.
 The landlord also requested on February 16 a garnishment for any accounts at Wells Fargo.  However, all is not lost for Mr. Kersh.  Attorney Bernard Jones filed a motion to set aside the default judgment on February 20.  The motion states:

 The judgment recites “the Defendants RAYMOND KERSH individually and SKY BOX OF JACKSON, LLC, both having been duly served with a Summons requiring their attendance in the Hinds County Court, First Judicial District on the 17th day of January, 2017 at 9:30 AM, and a copy of the Complaint, failed to appear for trial.”....

In addition, the Complaint itself twice recites this case was “set for call” on February 9, 2017. The Defendants would show that they were not served with a summons requiring their attendance before this Court on January 17, 2017. The Defendants were not served with process in this case until January 27, 2017.

2. The Defendants would show that, prior to the commencement of this lawsuit, they tendered all amounts due and owing under the terms of the subject lease via Federal Express to Plaintiff at the address listed for payments in the lease. The Defendants were later informed by a representative of the Plaintiff that the address listed for payments in the lease was wrong and Defendants were provided with another address. Defendants tendered all amounts then owing under the lease to the new address via U.S. Mail. That mailing, and the rent payments contained therein, has not been returned to the Defendants by the postal service and is presumed to be in the possession of the Plaintiff.

3.   The Defendants did not appear before this Court on February 16, 2017 pursuant to the summons they were served with on January 27, 2017 because they reasonably believed this matter had been resolved and their attendance was no longer required.
4.  The Writ of Habere Facias Possessionem herein was issued on February 16, 2017,  the same day as the Final Judgment was entered. Miss. Code Ann. § 11-25-113 specifically provides that a writ of habere facias possessionem or execution shall not issue within five days from the date of judgment. The writ is therefore void and should be set aside.
Readers may remember this video of the owner that was posted in December:

Kinfolks - I gotta be honest with you, I think its high time you start focusing on the legislature. Damn this ol' petty fake wanna be a thug mess.

We have the Governor ordering more budget cuts while the legislature is passing more tax credits.

We have bigger fish to fry.

Sadly I watched the entire video. Mr Kersh you are an idiot!!! You have not one bit of business acumen! Why would anyone in their right mind want to visit your establishment after viewing the video? Don't let the hood logic and your ignorance come between you making money!!! What little reputation you had was pissed in the wind when you were mumbling with that gun in your hand, how did that help you? What a freeking dumb ass. Bottom line, everyone in the tri county area will stay away from you and any business affiliated with you because the FED's will now have another target, you DUMBASS! No wonder why you idiots are easily targeted and locked up. It ain't the man, its your dumb ass posting on social media!!!

Bush league establishment in a low-rent shopping center. Places like this pop up all the time and the owner burns through his minority business loan with no fiscal restraint. Jackson has a hundred stories like this, only the owners don't publicly threaten to shoot patrons who complain.

This guy has a brand new orange Escalade outside the Skybox with advertising posters taped to the windows so he can call it a business expense, when it's really a new fancy vehicle for him. If you're buying luxury vehicles and neglecting to pay your landlord, that's a recipe for bankruptcy.

When you go on Facebook and threaten people who complain about your business, then post videos of yourself pointing a gun at the camera and threatening to "put a beam on" certain people who dare enter, then it's no surprise that your clientele is scarce.

The shopping center he is in has a Chinese restaurant, a nail salon, a beauty supply, a dollar store, and a check cashing joint - none of which is a high rent business. If he can't pay the rent in a shopping center that caters to those places, he can't pay the rent anywhere.

Raving lunatic. He talks about "talented rappers" (wtf?) and his Bentley and Rolls Royce which he doesn't own. Then he threatens to shoot people.

This guy is high as a kite. That's gotta be where his rent money goes.

I'm not familiar with this establishment. Where is it in real terms that can be understood?

It's on County Line Road behind Bop's. On the corner, next to a check cashing place.

If as many black guys actually owned Bentleys as brag about owning Bentleys, they'd be as common as Toyota Camrys. There would be a Bentley dealership on Ellis Avenue, and Advance Auto Parts would stock Bentley parts right next to the pine tree air fresheners.

Dear Mr. Rap Daiquiri Bar Owner / Bentley Aficionado:

- Nobody believes you are rich when you brag about your wealth in what looks like a one bedroom apartment at The Trails.

- Nobody believes you own a Bentley or a Rolls or anything north of a 1978 Electra 225 on 24" rims (although it appears you bought an orange Escalade with your business loan).

- Nobody believes you pay people's gas bills and don't tell anyone until you're drunk on a Facebook video.

- Nobody believes you sunk $120,000 into that rinky dink daiquiri bar (more like $30,000, with $89,000 going toward an orange Cadillac SUV with no resale value and $1,000 for a 9mm with a laser sight).

- Nobody believes you even HAVE $120,000 to invest without getting a business loan that you apparently squandered.

Now that your business is broke, time to get to work on that rap career, huh? Once you hit it big, you can open daiquiri bars all across the nation!

I'm not sure which video is more disturbing and/or embarrassing, this one or the one of that Filipino looking broad down in Hattiesburg who just got arrested for posting a clip of her having sex with a dog.

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.

Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
