Legal, financial issues besiege nursing home


Crescent Senior Care failed to appear or respond after being served regarding the allegations they failed to pay the pharmacy for services, the court found. 

Lindley said the pharmacy continues to do business with the facility.

Excel X-Ray and DFW Full Spectrum Contractors have also filed lawsuits in Parker County in recent months claiming the company owes them for services provided.

Last week, DFW Full Spectrum Contractors and Consultants filed a petition in Parker County’s 415th District Court alleging the facility owes them more than $164,000 for completed and approved roof and air-conditioning unit work.

The contractor claims the bank withheld a portion of insurance claim money designated for the project and decided to apply it to the debt on the building.

A bank official told the contractor that bank regulators were requiring the bank to bring the loan current or foreclose on the property, the petition states.

Excel X-Ray, which filed suit against Crescent Senior Care and Todd Lindley in February, claims the facility owes more than $13,000 for services provided between November 2010 and January 2013.

James Moon, an attorney representing the company, declined to comment on the litigation.

A one-time attorney, Lindley has been to court over nursing facility company finances in the past. In 2006, a federal grand jury indicted Lindley on 35 counts of mail, wire and bank fraud, alleging he sought investors for a proposed skilled nursing facility in Richardson and misused the funds for his law practice.

The amount of the fraud was around $1.5 million, the U.S. Department of Justice claimed.

After pleading guilty to one count in the 35-count indictment, Lindley was sentenced in 2007 to five years probation, including 90 days in custody, and a $50,000 fine. He was also disbarred.

At the time of the indictment, Lindley was listed as the president and director for Goldenlife Senior Care Inc., the company owning the Weatherford facility, according to state records.

The Democrat was unable to reach Lindley Friday for comment after learning of the fraud conviction and more details about the ownership structure.
