Judge Dally to former Joplin master developer: You still owe $1.5 million
Wallace and Bajjali failed to appear for that trial. A month later, Joplin attorney William Fleischaker, representing Bajjali, filed a motion for a new trial, saying his client had not received notice.
Crane rejected the motion.
Fleischaker then filed a motion to set aside the judgment, again claiming Bajjali had not received sufficient evidence.
Dally wasn't buying the argument.
"It appears to the court that this is an attempt by the defendant to take one more bite out of the same apple," Dally wrote in his opinion.
