Notes: REA Wins Court Judgment; Midnight Open for 2014 Bowman; Dad-Daughter Duo in Denver

Robert Edward Auctions won a legal victory on Wednesday when a New Jersey Superior Court judge ordered Peter Nash to pay the company’s $261,000 legal bill.

REA President Rob Lifson and his attorney have been attempting to collect a $760,000 judgment from the former rap star since 2009. It’s been quite a tussle in court and expenses mounted for the auction company, which has managed to recover some of the money stemming from a loan REA provided to Nash that went unpaid.

“We have been very successful in our collection efforts and will continue pursuing all avenues that we believe will be fruitful,” Lifson stated.  “With the help of the courts, I guarantee we will eventually collect every penny. “

Somewhere in that collection are some that have a little history behind them, but for Dan Sauvageau and his daughter Emily, it’s all about the memories and the fun:
