Member Charles "Hal" McMillin, after first blowing a fuse at LAPA Vice President Robert
 Burns, who objected to his carrying on a conversation with fellow Member Jeff Henderson
while Burns was speaking, resigned from the LALB effective Wednesday, September 10, 2014







 LAPA Vice President Robert Burns provides a primer in terms of a background
of the LALB's sharply divergent treatment of Kathleen Sue White vs.
Board Member Jeff Henderson (Marvin Henderson's son) regarding
allegations of unpaid sales taxes.  This "stroll down memory lane"
is provided as a result of the upcoming trial of LA Dept. of Revenue v. JAH Enterprises

being scheduled to convene the week of Monday, September 15, 2014 in Livingston Parish, a venue
in which Marvin Henderson has stated:  "They (the LA Dept. of Revenue) don't want to try me
in Livingston Parish."  CLICK HERE to see a copy of the original suit filed by the
LA Dept. of Revenue.





LAPA Vice President Robert Burns explains the pitfalls of serving as principal (owner)
 in merchandise offered for sale at auction, particularly when multiple
 owners are involved. Burns illustrates the high level of trust that's required for such
 situations by illustrating a lawsuit filed by JAH Enterprises d/b/a/ Henderson Auctions
 after things went haywire entailing the sale of a casino boat jointly owned by JAH Enterprises
 (which is itself owned by LALB Member Jeff Henderson) and Blake
 Everett, a former employee of Henderson Auctions.






LALB discusses the possibility that Dale Henderson and/or Eldred Henderson
may have illegally loaned personal license(s) to facilitate Alex Lyon & Son Sales Managers
 & Auctioneers Inc. conducting an auction without a valid Louisiana auction business license.




During public comment, LAPA President Rev. Freddie Lee Phillips and Vice President Robert Burns
 contrast the highly restrictive conditions under which they have been forced
 to videotape meetings vs. the very liberal accommodations provided to the Board
 itself once it decided to begin videotaping meetings on September 9, 2014.
