Investors Sue Newport Beach Father-Son, Alleging Real Estate Investment Fraud

Two men who say they lost $100,000 each in a real estate investment fraud have sued the father and son who took their investment money.

Plaintiffs Dennis Stearns and Craig Smith sued Edward Theodore Embry, an Orange County real estate broker, his father Michael Patrick Embry, their attorney Michael D. Davis, and Red Rock Servicing II LLC, in Federal Court. Embry Senior is quoted in the civil complaint as being a “well-known Phoenix real estate broker and developer.”

The Embry’s investment opportunity solicited investors via an ad in which they claimed to buy, rehab and re-sell distressed California residential real estate and earn their investors 15% return and a “total refund” after one year. The money was invested with the Embry’s firm, Red Rock Servicing, located in Newport Beach.

Both plaintiffs allege that the Embry’s refused to return each man his $100,000 investment. Their lawsuit seeks actual, incidental, contractual and punitive damages, attorney fees and costs for securities fraud, constructive fraud, breach of contract, conversion, unjust enrichment, and alter ego.

They are represented by Elliot Stone with The Stone Law Firm
