FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., Feb. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Gigi Stetler, owner of RV Sales of Broward (www.rvsalesofbroward.com), announced today that she has retained the legal services of The Ticktin Law Group to handle the lawsuit against Mark Bellissimo, Equestrian Show Holdings, Equestrian Sport Productions and Wellington Equestrian Partners.
"I'm thrilled that famed attorney, Peter Ticktin, has agreed to take on this lawsuit. Peter has built a thriving practice and is known as a bulldog. I know that he'll help shed light on the injustice I faced and that justice will be served," said Gigi Stetler, Owner and Founder of RV Sales of Broward. "The Village of Wellington is going to be shocked when they learn of what was done to me."
The filed lawsuit against Mark Bellissimo and all his named corporations deals with:
- Stetler illegally being thrown off the equestrian show grounds in 2010 causing infliction of emotional distress and damage to her reputation. After a full day hearing, the USEF ruled unanimously in Stetler's favor and Bellissimo was admonished.
- Failure to return audio, video and other of Stetler's equipment that was lent to Bellissimo and the horse show, which is still being illegally used at shows.
- Fraudulently obtaining RV Sales of Broward's client list and selling it to Stetler's biggest competitor Camping World, which replaced them as the new RV Sponsor of the Winter Equestrian Festival. They interfered with the relationship which RV Sales had with its customers.
"It's despicable what the defendant did to Gigi and her company. Here, she was a loyal long-time sponsor only to be replaced by a competitor who was willing to pay more, while trying to put her out of business," said Peter Tickin, founder and attorney at The Ticktin Law group. "One of the things we learned about Gigi is that she won't just quit and go away. She's a fighter looking for justice and we're honored to represent her."
