Item 8.01    Other Events.
Form 10-Q for the Period Ending September 30, 2013
The Company is working to settle outstanding amounts owed Marcum LLP so that they will complete their review of the Company’s 2013 third quarter report and the quarterly report can be filed with the SEC.
Pending Legal Proceedings
An action was commenced on March 22, 2012, in the Supreme Court of the State of New York for the County of Nassau, by Lazar Sanders Thaler & Associates LLP, a dissolved accounting firm of which Terry R. Lazar, the Company’s CFO was a member. Among the parties named as defendants were Mr. Lazar and the Company. The claim was made that the Company owed fees to the plaintiff and/or that such fees were paid to Terry Lazar who never forwarded them to the plaintiff. Mr. Lazar undertook the defense of the action on his behalf and on behalf of the Company. Since no bills were sent to the Company for any work other than an invoice for $5,900, which was paid by the Company, and since Mr. Lazar never collected any fees from the Company, an assessment was made by Mr. Lazar that the Company did not have any financial exposure and that it was not necessary to disclose the details of the litigation.
The matter proceeded to inquest and, despite the fact that the plaintiff failed to introduce any evidence that (a) any services were rendered to the Company, (b) that any bills were sent to the Company, and (c) that any funds were due from the Company, the court awarded judgment to plaintiff against the Company in the sum of $25,000.00.  Adding interest and costs to the awarded amount, judgment has been entered against the Company in the total sum of $36,612.91. An appeal has been taken from the judgment. The appeal has been perfected by the filing of the record and brief. In the opinion of counsel for the Company there was no lawful basis for the entry of judgment against the Company and counsel believes that the judgment will be reversed and vacated as against the Company.
This matter has not previously been disclosed in the Company’s Exchange Act filings.  Mr. Lazar disclosed the existence of the litigation to management, but not the details, and assured management that he would be responsible for the litigation and that the Company would not have any liability.  Management other than Mr. Lazar had no information concerning the litigation with which to evaluate the materiality of the litigation and relied on Mr. Lazar’s representation that the litigation was not material and that the Company had no exposure by reason of its being a defendant in the litigation.  The existence of the litigation was not disclosed to the Company’s Board of Directors or the Company’s SEC counsel.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Company has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
