Mr Chowbey was involved in a law suit ( when Victorville Aerospace, LLC (VAL) sued him for “fraud (intentional misrepresentation)”

Excerpt from lawsuit:

In 2004, VAL began looking for investors. Leading Edge, a company that paints commercial aircraft, expressed an interest in acquiring VAL and its assets. When an agreement could not be reached, Chowbey, a senior officer of Leading Edge, expressed an interest in investing. In June 2005, Chowbey and his partner, Joshua Singh, presented a written commitment, representing their intent to provide VAL $1.5 million in operating capital. VAL appointed Chowbey as its president, and he took control of VALs financial activities.

By November 2005, VAL maintains it realized Chowbey would not be able to make the capital contribution he promised, and VAL began seeking alternative investors. It negotiated a sale of 50.2 percent of the business to William Graven for $2.5 million. Graven prepared a letter outlining the terms of the agreement, which the parties all signed, including Chowbey. When it came time to close the transaction, VAL maintains Chowbey convinced Graven to terminate the agreement.

VAL immediately terminated its relationship with Chowbey, and asked him to vacate the premises. VAL alleges it soon discovered Chowbey had embezzled a substantial sum of money from VALs bank account before leaving. Its lawsuit contains causes of action against Chowbey for
  • 1. Fraud (intentional misrepresentation);
    2. Conversion
    3. Breach of written contract
    4. Intentional interference with prospective economic advantage
    5. Negligent interference with prospective economic advantage
    6. Breach of fiduciary duty
Mr. Chowbey filed a cross-complaint against VAL and three of its members.
