Litigant Guru Of Gwinnet Georgia Coming to Dayton, OH

The Litigant Guru of Gwinnet County, Georgia was one of the most popular posts on Bad Lawyer last year.  Daytonians are now in luck, he is now making the move the midwest according to a commentator who tipped me to this news report at the Atlanta Journal Constitution:

"A Hindu guru dogged by controversy is relocating his temple to Dayton, Ohio, even as he wages legal battles in Georgia.

Annamalai Annamalai, also known as Dr. Commander Selvam, moved his operations in part because he needed to 'step back and regroup' from his troubles in Atlanta, said his lawyer John Scaccia.  Annamalai has been arrested twice in Gwinnett County since 2008 on charges of credit card fraud and practicing medicine without a license. Prosecutors dropped the charges due to insufficient evidence.

Attendance at the Hindu Temple of Georgia has plummeted, leading to bankruptcy and foreclosure earlier this year.

The temple is still embroiled in bankruptcy court, where the IRS is seeking $600,000 in unpaid taxes.  Annamalai filed a lawsuit in federal court last week seeking $56 million in damages from Gwinnett authorities. It targets Gwinnett police investigator Paul Cwalina, who lead the investigation, Gwinnett County Sheriff Butch Conway, and Sheriff's Deputy Dave Henry. Several former temple devotees whose complaints prompted the investigation also were included in the lawsuit.

The lawsuit claims Cwalina coached individuals to say they were swindled by Annamalai as part of a conspiracy to destroy the temple. It is the latest of dozens of legal actions that Annamalai has filed against people who criticized him or raised questions about his practices.

'The poor guy was portrayed by law enforcement as being some type of a criminal,'  said Scaccia.

Officials from the Gwinnett police and Sheriff's departments declined to comment on the pending litigation.

The Dayton Daily News this month reported that Annamalai paid $525,000 in cash for an old bank building in downtown Dayton. He also bought a flea market where he plans to establish his new temple, the newspaper said. But Georgians probably haven't seen the last of Annamalai.

'He thinks of them very highly and cares about his temple and wants to come back there,' Scaccia said.
________________________
When last we checked in with Annamalai or whatever alias he using, he had lost a Fulton County, Ga. lawsuit and both he and his attorney were sanctioned to the tune of $11,000 for frivolous conduct.   The Guru and his lawyer may have made the further fatal mistake of filing a frivolous federal action--more shall be revealed.

  4. Dear Sir
    There is no sanction was made. The lawyer who filed the case forgot to file his verification, and based on the same ,the case was dismissed.

    The case was not dismissed on the merits and never sanctioned for $ 11,000.00. Kindly fact check , before you place anything in your portal
    Dr Commander Selvam was literally thrown away by conspiracy and he is fighting back. thats all

    Thank you sir

    If you can point to any resource online that I can access that demonstrates your claim, I will be happy to make a correction. As it stands my source is the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

  12. "Poor Guy"? "Framed"? Ask any of his victims & they can tell you stories about this credit-card thief who even has Child molestation case against him! He then HARASSES his victims by filing lawsuit after lawsuit, threatening calls....

    He ropes people in with his Siddhi Times & other material. Once you confide your troubles to him, you cannot ESCAPE. He will threaten to go public with the details if you don' keep paying him whatever he demands. HINDU COMMUNITY BEWARE!!!!!

  14. This fraudster Annamalai Annamalai is again at his old game. This time he has started abusing the Ohio judicial channels. Several cases in Montgomery county courts and the common pleas courts. It is unbelievable that the court system in Ohio is foolish enough to entertain such cases. Thank god, he has now lost all cases in our Georgia courts in Fulton, Gwinnett, and Cobb counties.

  17. IT past time to bring this criminal to justice and send him back to India he does nothing but steal from hard working people looking to get a head!!! I wish someone in Ga. warned us sooner

  18. By the time law enforcement acts and puts this crook behind bars, he is all out to make as much money as he can. People should remember that this guy is a child-molester, credit card thief, legal and police force abuser, financial crook, and so on. The stupid system led by Danny Porter let him go scot-free. What a waste of the system and a betrayal of the trust.

  20. Beware of this fraud Selvam he is now operating at 7600 Bayway Dr. Baytown Tx. His new place is called Ashok Spiritual Healing Center. Stay away from this place and most of all do not give him credit cards or numbers to him. He is nothing but a thief and his real name is Annamalai Annamalai. Aka Commander Selvam look him up on line and you will find the truth about this con artist that needs to be put in jail for crime against Americans and Indians.
