ALERT >> ALERT >> ALERT: Judge Dismisses Lawsuit Filed Against United States By AdSurfDaily Figures Todd Disner And Dwight Owen Schweitzer, Later To Become Zeek Promoters
The dismissal of the lawsuit by U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer came on the same day she sentenced confessed ASD Ponzi scheme operator Andy Bowdoin to 78 months in federal prison.
After their ASD days, Disner and Schweitzer went on to become promoters of Zeek Rewards, which the SEC now describes as a $600 million Ponzi- and pyramid scheme. ASD was a $119 million Ponzi scheme.
Disner reportedly now is involved in an effort to raise funds to sue the SEC for its role in the Zeek case. Disner and Schweitzer also raised funds to sue the government for its role in the ASD Ponzi case, but Collyer today dismissed their complaint.
From Collyer’s order of dismissal in the case brought by Disner and Schweitzer, who alleged the seizure of their records on ASD’s database was unconstitutional (italics added).
They allege that federal agents seized money, uncashed checks, unendorsed checks, books, computers, and other assets and records created and maintained by Plaintiffs in the computers and servers that were in the custody and control of ASD. Plaintiffs maintain that their information was encrypted and password protected. Specifically, Mr. Disner claims that he is owed $53,000 . . . On September 17, 2008, the Government returned to ASD the computers that it had seized . . . Mr. Schweitzer avers that he cannot remember where his checks/money orders were drawn, that he put $3,500 into ASD, and that he was involved with ASD for “only a few weeks before it was shut down.”
