A settlement, an answer, a few depositions, and a new case later.

Edited at 11/5/21, 3:30pm: to report on decision ordering Dave Ramsey to submit to a deposition in the O’Connor case and denying his attorneys’ request that Ms. O’Connor be barred from the deposition.

I’m now three articles deep into what could be an extended series on lawsuits involving Dave Ramsey and Ramsey Solutions. Why write about this, you ask? Well, I decided to explain the why in a separate article — but this one is for you legal junkies, long readers, and Dave Ramsey lovers or haters. An update.

If you haven’t already read Part 1 and Part 2, go back and do that to catch up. Here’s the list of cases we’re working from, notice a new one at the end:

1. Washington v. Timeshare Exit Team

2. Lampo Group v. Chris Hogan

3. Caitlin O’Connor v. Lampo Group

4. Lampo Group v. Marriott Hotel Services

5. Julie Ann Stamps v. Lampo Group

1. Washington v. Timeshare Exit Team:

Williamson County (TN) Circuit Court, Miscellaneous Docket, Case №21CV-267 (Dave Ramsey motion to compel case only). Actual case against Reed Hein: King County (WA) Superior Court, Case
