I passed by the now-empty shell of Schumacher Furs and Outerwear on SW Morrison today. All that appeared to be left were some display window lighting fixtures and the awning signs, which makes two buildings that still have Schumacher detrius on them (their previous 10th and Yamhill location also has a falling-apart sign still on the building).
But Schumacher Furs still is active in the court system. Besides the TMT lawsuit for back rent and lease violations and the anti-SLAPP claims by In Defense of Animals, PETA, and IDA-affiliated people, there are other people and organizations who have claims against Schumacher Furs.
Turns out, Schumacher Furs stiffed their ad agency and allegedly stiffed a lawyer who worked for them!
Multnomah County Circuit Court Case No. 0603-02715 - INS Advertising v. Schumacher Furs - Schumacher's advertising agency sued them for over $25,000 in advertising expenses related to a fall 2005 ad campaign. On October 2, 2006, an arbitrator ruled for the ad agency for $25,851 plus interest, costs, and attorneys' fees for a total of $42,177.97.
The ad agency wanted to get the money while it was still around - they garnished Schumacher Furs' bank account on December 1, 2006 for $33,502.31, and the rest of the judgment was paid by January 3, 2007.
Lawyer Greg Oldham filed Case No. 0704-03956 against Schumacher Furs and Gregg Schumacher on April 9, 2007, alleging $20,958.43 in unpaid legal fees for work he performed for various Schumacher entities. This case is still pending.
