Paul Teutul Jr. Lawsuit
Teutul Jr., his father Paul John, and his brother Daniel are named in a 2007 lawsuit alleging fraudulent transfer, brought on behalf of Turner Construction. This dates back to 2003 and a ruling in favor of Turner in 2005 concerning the original OC Iron Works company.
It is alleged that assets were stripped from the OC Ironworks, transferring the viable assets, contracts and personnel to a new company OC Ironworks LLC, before bankrupting the former. This involved transferring the ownership to Paul Teutul Jr. and allegedly selling the assets to the new company with unfair compensation.
In 2007, Trustee Tom Genova filed fraud complaints with the Bankruptcy Court and in complaint sought to have the transfers from the old company to the new company judged fraudulent and set aside.
Tom Genova also sought to make the new company liable for the old company’s debts. A proposed settlement was reached with Orange County LLC paying out $500,000 to Genova to be distributed to the creditors.
On February 16, 2011, the New York State Unified Court System’s website, showed that the Teutul v Teutul civil action was no longer active. The case had been “Disposed”, meaning the case was out of the court system. On the August 29, 2011, episode, Teutul Jr. and Teutul Sr. settled the lawsuit with Teutul Sr.’s purchase of Teutul Jr. 20% share in Orange County Choppers (“OCC”), thus ending the lawsuit.
