John Dearden manipulated John Ellis and lied to him about paying salary, and about paying for work he later accomplished, and about paying others whom Mr. Ellis helped to hire.  Mr. Ellis later learned from a newspaper story that Dearden and Renaissance were "reorganizing" their business to escape and avoid those previous liabilities and commitments in Cape Girardeau Missouri, which included some $175,000.00 in salaries due to the employees there.  Read the E mail which follows the newspaper story.

Shortly thereafter Mr. Ellis filed suit against Mr. John Dearden and Renaissance Aircraft in Jackson Missouri.
