Blog: GPB Capital Holdings v. Patrick Dibre Lawsuit Heats Up - 2019-05-10
Scientologist David Gentile, CEO of GPB Capital Holdings, called a key shot in late April of 2019 in GPB's lawsuit against former managing partner Patrick Dibre. Gentile's decision, however, went nowhere. In its Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Attorney Certification, GPB Capital indicated in the affirmative that it "presently wishes to jointly engage a mediator at an appropriate time to aid settlement."
Defendant Patrick Dibre indicated in his ADR that he does not "presently wish to jointly engage a mediator at an appropriate time to aid settlement."
Plaintiff GPB Capital Holdings wishes to have a mediator to aid settlement. Defendant Dibre does not want a mediator and is apparently ready to slug it out with GPB in court or, in the alternative, hold settlement talks directly without a mediator. One item of note: GPB Capital sued Patrick Dibre as an individual. GPB did did not name Dibre's company or automotive dealerships as defendants.
