John Ritenour, Heath Ritenour and Insurance Office of America Face Additional Lawsuit of Alleged "Abuse" and "Weaponizing" Legal Proceedings to "Bully" Victims - Witnesses Sought as to the Allegations

Longwood, FL, August 11, 2020 --( Insurance Office of America, John Ritenour and Heath Ritenour – and their lawyers – now face an Abuse of Process Counterclaim after they sued lawyers representing victims of alleged civil racketeering and fraud for alleged defamation. The lawsuit alleges: “Instead of defending these cases on the merits, Insurance Office of America, John Ritenour and Heath Ritenour engaged their 'legal fixers' from [Moran, Kidd, Lyons, Johnson & Garcia, P.A.] to file a lawsuit against all four victims and two sets of lawyers claiming they have been defamed. Yet, since inception, Insurance Office of America, John Ritenour and Heath Ritenour have done everything in their power to block and obstruct the victims’ rights to discovery, which further continues a pattern of using judicial process for unintended and 'Illegal Purposes.'”

The Amended Counterclaim further states: “After the filing of four (4) [Civil Racketeering 'RICO'] lawsuits against the Ritenours and Insurance Office of America, with other law firms following suit, John Ritenour and Heath Ritenour maliciously ordered their longtime syndicate attorneys, and a 'Co-Racketeer' Defendant Brian Moran, to target those who dare interrupt their decades-long scheme to artificially inflate Insurance Office of America’s private stock over 300% before John Ritenour’s 'retirement' in 2019.” This lawsuit further alleges: “After the last lawsuit was filed as a 'Class Action' against 'RICO' Defendant John Ritenour, Heath Ritenour, Insurance Office of America and others, outlining in painstaking detail how the scheme operated, 'RICO' Defendants John Ritenour and Heath Ritenour used the 'legal muscle' end of their 'crime syndicate' to attempt to obstruct justice and punish the brave former Insurance Office of America employees for filing their claims.”

The allegations go on to assert: "[John Ritenour and Heath Ritenour] and Insurance Office of America believe that their methods of using their lawyers to intimidate and bully former employees is an effective strategy for them to get away with fraud. For many years, Defendants John and Heath have used their in-house lawyers and The Moran Firm to ensure that nobody even thinks about exposing them for defrauding their own lifeblood. If they do, they pay the price of either being sued or having their professional reputation in the insurance industry smeared.
