ADULT ANTI–BULLYING LAW ENFORCEMENT SERIES
CORMAX GROUP LLC DECEIT EXPOSED BY HORSE PEOPLE
PILLS-IN-PRINT “ANTI –BULLYING LAW ENFORCEMENT SERIES”
MADISON WI -
Four Equestrian Centers just outside of Madison Wisconsin have galloped together in order to herd off the lies, deceit, misrepresentation and moldy hay production and sale of whom they now refer to as “Mad Max”. They also have recently called on local law enforcement to finally put all the police and Sheriff’s deputy contacts over the past two years together and act to make sure there is not a fifth Equestrian Center that suffers their same fate. This series attempts to increase enforcement awareness and educate the public that, “Bullying is found everywhere not just in schools and playgrounds,” according to Dr. Dan author of, “Analyzing Monsters – Family Cures”.
Monica Walker Advocate for Workplace Bullying Legislation is championing the “Healthy Workplace Bill” of Wisconsin. The Bill is strongly supported by Dr. Dan. “Law enforcement officials need help dealing with chronic, well enabled offenders and Bully’s. “However, the best way to rehab offenders is to not make them offenders in the first place,” continues Dr. Dan. “Proper Policing, Pills-In-Print and smart justice needs to replace the mindless avoidance or selective incarceration of identified offenders or impaired individuals in need of rehab”.
Current Case in Study
Max Harns Jr. (aka Mad Max) according to these four Equestrian Centers cleverly contracts with the intent of creating chaos, harassing, intimidating and even running up huge legal bills for owners to evict him. He progressively skips out of lease and boarding payments while eventually stalking these initially naïve center owners and their horse boarders.
Misrepresenting himself as owner of lands Cormax only leased, dealing moldy hay and even theft appear to be primary owner complaints. Not paying for services and flooding calls to police to misrepresent legal offenses of others appears common in all complaints. It is Harn that confronts, name calls and accuses his landlords of the offenses he is committing or will commit shortly!
We will refer to the four centers as 1-4 in the following report. Center 1 spent over $3,000 and two court sessions in Dane County before they could get the verbally and behaviorally offensive Harns and his two horses out of their stables. The presiding Judge finally confronted Harns, “They do not want you and you complain about their stables and services so why not leave?”
Later Harns and Cormax Group LLC signed a farm lease for partial and approximate lands of Center 2 contiguous to Center 1. Harns who had ridden his horses on and enjoyed trails provided by these centers immediately denied all others use of the trails crossing farm lands only eased by Cormax. Harns did this by misrepresenting himself as the new owner and using the F word and even three of his untrained dogs to intimidate and order the mostly female riders off the trails.
Owners shared Harns cut hay in the rain and even baled it wet. He and his dogs trespassed causing one neighbor to say he would shoot his dogs. Of course Harns took advantage of the rage statement and called the Sheriffs on that neighbor as well. One of Harn’s employees was reported to have been severely trampled and gored by Harn’s steers in Richland Center.
Harns installed illegal and non-conforming access and egresses on Center 2. Harns called in misleading and false reports while battling Centers 1 and Center 3 trapping Center 2 in the middle of the combat zone. After non-payment and other lease breaking offenses Harns was served an eviction notice by Center 2. Harns claiming ties to an in-law judge attempted to set up Centers 1-3. Harns on several occasions agreed to sign away the lease and leave but reneged on each occasion. What about Equestrian Center 4 you ask?
Center 4 - In Center 4’s manager’s documentation
March 1, 2012: Had his (Harm) daughter and ex-wife, (confidential) tour the barn and sign boarding agreement
Max rarely paid on time and/or came to the barn. The daughter (confidential) rode occasionally.
May 2013: Purchased hay from him.
July 5, 2013: Texted him asking him to drop off payment. No response from him.
July 7, 2013: Texted him asking him to drop off payment. No response from him.
July 15, 2013: Texted him asking him to drop off payment. No response from him.
July 17, 2013 at 10:15am: Arrived at stable, without notice, loaded Legacy and quickly left the property before we could call the Dane County Sherriff. Max told my daughter (confidential) that he forgot his checkbook and that he would be back in the afternoon to drop off a check for July board. He took 2 water buckets and attempted to take a grain feeder off the wall. He left the grain feeder broken attached to the wall. Owed $395.
10:30am, I attempted to call Max and he didn’t answer the phone. I left a message warning him that we would call the Dane County Sherriff if he didn’t return my phone call.
10:45am I called the Dane County Sherriff.
12:00pm: Sherriff Anderson called and spoke with me. I filed a report over the phone. The Sherriff went to speak with Max and called me back. The Sherriff stated that Max seemed “unstable” and that it was our choice whether or not to file official charges. His opinion was that we should probably just write off the losses at this point because Max was insistent that he owes us nothing.
7:56am: Max texted, “Well, why would you threaten to call the sheriff? That is how you treat criminals, not friends. Also, we’ve done business together and I’d hoped to be able to keep going. I would never call the police over $395!
12:00pm: I received a phone call from Max. He proceeded to tell me how I should be grateful that he sold us his last bit of hay. I reminded him that it was moldy and we had to dispose of quite a bit of it. He called me a liar
Max called (Center 4 Owner’s Business) 3 times in the morning. Max accused our office manager, (confidential) of lying about (owner) being out of the office. He called once again and I answered the phone. We told Max that we would give (owner) the message when he returns from him meetings.
Law Enforcement Conclusion:
Our opinion and sense of justice remains that Max Harn and Cormax Group LLC. should deliver each Center a written apology, promise to cease and desist future harassment or stalking and pay:
Equestrian Center 1 - $3000 Plus
Equestrian Center 2 - $9000 Plus
Equestrian Center 3 – $10,000 Plus
Equestrian Center 4 - $700 Plus
“For safety reasons families need to document, date and sign each entry like above. Request case numbers when police or deputies are involved in any situation – do not give up” encourages Dr. Dan, “Keep calling non-emergency numbers. Talk to the officer or their supervisor or both. File a counter claim if you feel a ‘Mad Max Type’ filed a false or misleading report. Always pay a few dollars to get a copy of the police or Sheriff report. Request they attach an addendum to the records produced by you to provide clarity or correct any errors.”
