Dog the Bounty Hunter Leland Chapman Gets Tossed from Court: EXCLUSIVE


LOS ANGELES (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – Dog the Bounty Hunter Leland Chapman returns to Dog and Beth tonight on CMT. But Leland is not returning to a federal court case he brought anytime soon.

For months LALATE has exclusively reported that Leland Chapman, Duane Lee Chapman and Tim Chapman sued a production company over the A&E series Dog the Bounty Hunter. The Chapmans initially retained the counsel who typically represented Dog and Beth Chapman. That counsel then couldn’t get a response from Leland, Duane Lee and Tim. The counsel then went to court to ask out of the case, claiming that the three Chapman are simply not reachable and allegedly no cooperative clients. Eventually, the court agreed, and allowed Dog and Beth’s counsel to withdraw from representing Leland, Duane Lee and Tim, LALATE can exclusively report.

Then defense counsel made the next move. It attempted to contact Leland, Duane Lee and Tim – now representing themselves – to respond to the case which they brought in the first place. The producer lodged with the court copies of letters sent to home addresses for the three Chapmans. The producer went back to court and told the judge that the Leland, Duane Lee and Tim were now not responding again either.

LALATE can now report that in late August defense counsel made a motion to dismiss against Leland, Duane Lee and Tim for lack of prosecution of their case. Several status conferences were set ordering Leland, Duane Lee and Tim to appear in court and explain why they can’t be found. They didn’t appear multiple times.

The court by August was so perplexed that the judge even telephoned the Chapman men on the phone from court chambers, LALATE can exclusively report. “Three calls were made for Plaintiffs Tim Chapman, Leland Chapman and Duane Lee Chapman, II on the 4th floor and 1st floor of the courthouse – there was no response.” Just days ago, the court had enough and dismissed the case.

Leland Chapman, Duane Lee Chapman Battle Dismissal: EXCLUSIVE



LOS ANGELES (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – What happened to Leland Chapman, Duane Lee Chapman and Tim Chapman? Leland Chapman returns to “Dog and Beth” this week on TV. But Leland Chapman along with Duane Lee and Tim of Dog the Bounty Hunter have gone missing from a federal court action. And now the court is considering to dismissing their action after failing to make court appearances and respond to letters, LALATE can exclusively report.

Leland Chapman, Duane Lee Chapman and Tim Chapman sued Boris Krutonog and Pivot Point Entertainment, LLC in 2008 over the A&E show Dog the Bounty Hunter. Originally Dog and Beth also were co-plaintiffs represented by Martin D. Singer. Dog and Beth thereafter were out of the case.

But in June 2013, attorneys Singer and Philip Browns petitioned the court to withdraw as counsel for Leland, Duane Lee and Tim. On the 26th of that month the court ordered that the Chapmans’ counsel can get out of the case.

At that point, Leland, Duane Lee, and Tim were left representing themselves. The court noted, however, that the defense counsel was going to file a motion to dismiss the case if the Chapmans don’t start responding. “Defense Counsel Michael Okazaki represented that the Defendants intend to file a motion to dismiss for failure to prosecute if the Plaintiffs fail to take action in the case.”

Documents obtained exclusively by LALATE reveal that a federal judge ordered Leland, Duane Lee, and Tim to appear in court on August 5, 2013. “Plaintiffs are ordered to appear at the Status Conference set for 8/5/2013 at 10:30 am.” But they didn’t appear. And Leland, Duane Lee, and Tim didn’t show up at a June 26 hearing either. “Plaintiffs Duane Lee Chapman II, Leland Chapman, and Tim Chapman have not complied with the Courts 6/19/2013 Order to appear in person or telephonically at today’s hearing [of June 26, 2013]“, the court found.

With Leland, Duane Lee and Tim having missed two court hearing appearances, counsel for the defendant Boris Krutonog filed days ago a Motion to Dismiss for Lack of Prosecution. Defendant is arguing that while you can find Leland Chapman on “Dog and Beth”, you can’t allegedly get him to appear at court in his own case.

Defense counsel has lodged certified mail receipts of letters sent to Leland Chapman’s home address in Honolulu, Hawaii, to Duane Lee Chapman II’s home, and to Tim Chapman’s home in Kula, Hawaii.

Duane Lee Chapman, Leland Chapman Feud with Family Counsel: EXCLUSIVE

LOS ANGELES (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – What happened to Duane Lee Chapman, Leland Chapman, and Tim Chapman? LALATE can exclusively report that Duane Lee Chapman, Leland Chapman, and Tim Chapman have all being at odds with the attorney that represents Beth Chapman and Dog the Bounty Hunter, Duane Chapman, since June of this year.

Fans have wondered why Duane Lee Chapman and Lyssa Chapman are not on the new CMT Dog the Bounty Hunter show, Dog and Beth. And in the final season of the A&E, fans watched as Dog got into a disagreement with his son Duane Lee and Leland.

Documents obtained exclusively by LALATE Sunday reveal that, for several months, Duane Lee Chapman II, Leland Chapman and Tim Chapman have been at odds with the same law firm that represents Dog and Beth. While the feud does not concern Dog and Beth, court documents reveal a break down of communication between Duane Lee, Leland and Tim and the family counsel.

In 2008, Duane Lee, Leland and Tim brought legal proceedings in federal court against the production company that produced the A&E show. One of the firms that Duane Lee, Leland and Tim hired to represent them was Beth and Dog’s longtime counsel in Los Angeles. In June this month, the court found that the “Plaintiffs Duane Lee Chapman II, Leland Chapman, and Tim Chapman have not complied with the Courts 6/19/2013 Order to appear in person or telephonically at today’s hearing.”

The court made extensive findings as to breakdowns in communication. “Plaintiffs counsel… represented that he sent a letter to the Plaintiffs [Duane Lee, Leland and Tim] via certified mail, notifying them of the Courts 6/19/2013 Order to appear at the hearing on the Motion to Withdraw As Counsel.”

The counsel had been representing Duane Lee, Leland and Tim. But in recent months, the counsel decided to withdraw. “[..Counsel] stated that the certified letters were received by Plaintiffs [Duane Lee, Leland and Tim] and/or Plaintiffs agent; however, he has not been contacted by the Plaintiffs. [Counsel...] also stated he previously sent the Plaintiffs copies of his Motion to Withdraw as Counsel via email and letter. [Counsel...] stated that some of the emails were returned to him due to defunct email addresses.

The court ultimately found no level of sufficient level of communication exists. “Plaintiffs counsel … have put forth sufficient reasons to indicate a breakdown in communication between counsel and their clients. Plaintiffs counsel has indicated it will be impossible to move forward with their clients due to this lack of communication. ” The counsel was allowed to withdraw, leaving that Duane Lee, Leland and Tim now representing themselves in federal court.

Dog the Bounty Hunter Threatens to Sue Lyssa Chapman Mgr: EXCLUSIVE

Posted: June 9th, 2013 in Dog Chapman, Dog the Bounty Hunter, Duane Lee Chapman, Lyssa Chapman by LALATE

Dog the Bounty Hunter Threatens to Sue Lyssa Chapman Mgr: EXCLUSIVE

LOS ANGELES (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – Dog the Bounty Hunter is threatening to sue Baby Lyssa Chapman’s manager. What isn’t Lyssa Chapman on the new CMT Dog and Beth series, what happened between Duane Lee Chapman and Dog, and what went on between Dog and his family at the end of the A&E series? Onthe final season of A&E’s Dog the Bounty Hunter series, the Chapman family was in turmoil. Duane Lee on tv was vowing to quit, Leland was furious, and Dog and Beth were at odds with the three siblings. For months, Dog the Bounty Hunter fans have been asking for clarity as to what happened between Dog and Baby Lyssa. Now, LALATE can exclusively report that Beth Chapman and Dog Chapman are threatening litigation against Lyssa’s manager and warning her publisher.

LALATE has exclusively obtained this weekend a letter sent from attorneys for “Dog” Chapman and Beth Chapman threatening to sue Baby Lyssa Chapman’s manager. But the tensions don’t end there. So why is Dog Chapman warning of a possible lawsuit against his own daughter’s manager?

Several months ago, LALATE exclusively reported that Lyssa Chapman would be bringing to press a new book from Howard Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster. On May 7, Howard Books released Lyssa’s memoirs “Walking on Eggshells: Discovering Strength and Courage Amid Chaos.”

In the weeks that followed, LALATE also exclusively reported that Lyssa would not be joining Dog and Beth in their new CMT show, but would soon be the star of her own reality series. During that time, Lyssa also shared with followers online her upcoming appearances to promote her books. Among them purportedly was a stop at the Country Music Festival.

Now, Dog and Beth have retained counsel to contact Lyssa’s book manager, Martin Literary Management. The attorney for Dog and Beth claims in his letter “We are litigation counsel for Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman and Beth Chapman. We are writing regarding your outrageous and tortuous conduct in connection with promoting Lyssa Chapman’s book Walking on Eggshells (“Book”).”

The letter asserts that allegedly “Her [Lyssa's] conduct, at your [Martin’s] direction, subjects you, your agency, and her publisher to significant liability for defamation, tortuous interference with contract, and international infliction of emotional distress among other causes of action.”

In another passage of the two page letter, Dog and Beth Chapman discuss the use of the “Chapman” name in promoting Lyssa Chapman’s own book. “In addition, your efforts to have Lyssa attend the County Music Awards and glom on the Chapmans’ celebrity has not gone unnoticed. The CMT Network has been made aware of your unauthorized use of the Chapmans’ name and/or likeness in connection with the television series and will take all appropriate actions to protect its intellectual property rights.”

Lyssa’ publisher Howard Books / Simon & Schuster, her manager Martin Literary, CMT and the Chapmans have yet to comment about the matter.

Posted: April 21st, 2013 in Dog the Bounty Hunter, Duane Lee Chapman by LALATE

Duane Lee Chapman Jr Fall Out, Leaves Dog the Bounty Hunter what happened leave new show



LOS ANGELES (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – What happened to Duane Lee Chapman Jr? A Duane Lee Chapman fall out struck Dog the Bounty Hunter on A&E. Dog and his sons including Duane Lee Chapman fumed at the end of the last season of production on A&E. Duane Lee Chapman won’t be joining the new Dog the Bounty Hunter show, Dog and Beth, on CMT. But why isn’t Duane Lee on the new show?

First, why exactly is Duane Lee Chapman Jr not on the new show? Duane Lee has never spoken to news since his departure from the A&E show. During filming he deleted his social media presence. When the new show was revealed by CMT, the cast was initially announced as only Beth and Dog. Thereafter, Leland was confirmed joining the show. It remains unclear if Duane Lee doesn’t want to do the show, or if an offer was extended to him.

At the end of the final season on A&E, Duane Lee Chapman was exceptionally angry with Beth. He claimed on camera that he was being underpaid by Beth, overworked by Dog, and needed a new pay schedule. He then on camera quit the office. That tension prompted Dog to side with Beth more than Duane Lee. When Dog spoke to Duane Lee about the controversy, Dog offered to correct the trouble but continued to tell Duane Lee to apologize to Beth. Duane Lee never did.

Dog is heard telling Duane Lee that he believes his son hates him, Beth and hiss family. Duane Lee disputes the same. But Beth is heard shouting that the office cant “go broke” if she is paying Duane Lee and he is allegedly not working. Eventually, Duane Lee quit the office, moved to Florida, and ended filming with the family. He is reportedly not in the same line of business either.

Second, does Duane Lee Chapman have a Twitter and Facebook account? Duane Lee does not have a Twitter and Facebook account currently. But in fall 2012, a controversy erupted over his social media presence. The controversy started at the time that Duane Lee was starting to leave A&E filming.

In October 2012, on Facebook someone claiming to be him wrote “Yes, I deleted my Twitter page. I will keep this [Facebook] page”. But thereafter, Official Dog News reported that Duane Lee does not have a Facebook nor Twitter account. “Duane Lee does not have Twitter or Facebook. We confirmed it with him yesterday. Anyone claiming to be him is an impostor and is reported” .

Third, what happened to Tim Youngblood? Tim wont be joining the new show either. And in fall 2012, Tim also battled a false Twitter account. Beth and Dog Chapman told news then that someone had set up a fake account for Tim Youngblood as well.

Fourth, the new show will reportedly not detail the full extent of the fallout from the A&E season between Dog and Duane Lee. On April 14, the new CMT show debuted in preview. And that same evening, as the show aired, Dog wrote on Twitter “Duane Lee are you watching?” That message left fans guessing if Duane Lee could possibly join a second season, if Duane Lee wishes.

Finally, viewers are not happy about Duane Lee’s absence from the show. They are equally upset that his absence is not being detailed extensively on the show. “What’s the score with Duane Lee & Lyssa?”, “No Duane Lee Jr?”, and “where is Duane lee Chapman?” have been a series of twitter messages to Beth this weekend, none of which have been answered by her. “Does Duane Lee have a twitter handle?” wrote another viewer. “Honestly I’m upset because Duane Lee won’t be on it, but ill try to watch… Will Tim and Duane Lee be back too? Love you guys” voiced other fans.

Duane Lee Chapman: What Happened Between Dog and His Sons? - EXCLUSIVE


LOS ANGELES (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – Where is Duane Lee Chapman Jr, and what happened between Dog and his sons? Duane Lee Chapman is not on “Dog and Beth”. As a result, fans are left guessing what happened between Dog and Duane Lee, and why did Duane Lee quit Dog the Bounty Hunter.

In March 2012, LALATE exclusively reported that Duane Lee had left filming of the A&E reality show, had moved to Florida, and was no longer a part of the Bounty Hunter business with the Chapman’s. Viewers watched that month the drama unfold on camera.

But the tensions had happened months earlier when filming for A&E occurred. “Dog has dropped Duane Lee from the team, and Leland is feeling caught in the middle” A&E told news at the time. “When Leland confronts Dog and Beth about the decision tempers flare.”

The exit of Duane Lee prompted tensions between Beth and Leland. Beth fumed at the time to Leland “And what we are, chop liver?” Leland answered to Beth “I don’t know, you are cutting people left and right.” Beth said “We cut people or he didn’t show up? He didn’t show up Leland.”

Beth said that Duane Lee wasn’t doing his job. But Leland claims that Beth wasn’t acting right. Leland fumed “I don’t care. I’m not going to leave my brother out to hang and dry.” Beth replied “He left himself out to dry.”

Eventually those tensions were too much for Leland. He too left the show initially. “He is never coming back” said Leland. “I swear to the holy ghost I think you hate his guts. I think you hate him. … I think Duane Lee will never come back.”

Leland was right. Duane Lee never came back. So why did Duane Lee leave? A&E claimed then that “A family brawl is threatening the business and someone’s going to pay”,

Duane Lee told viewers that he thought he was being underpaid by Beth. Duane Lee fumed on camera at the time “Because all of sudden you take away my pay from the office, and have me work, more and more and more and more.” He added “It’s like I’m getting taking advantage of, you aren’t letting me give a rebuttal. You just keep talking and talking.”

Eventually, Dog was left in tears. Dog asked Duane Lee “So why do you hate us?” Duane Lee responds “I don’t hate anybody”. Dog answers “Leland thinks you do”. Dog then adds “cuz the last thing I heard you say ‘I’m sorry, I’m going to work more in the office, we’ll figure out a pay schedule so that Beth can pay me. I’ll work. And I’m sorry.’ “

Dog told Duane Lee that he needed to apologize to Beth. That apology was never shown on camera, if it even occurred. Dog, however, accused his own son Duane Lee of having the wrong attitude. “You need to tell Beth you love her and be nice.”

Eventually, was money an issue? Beth told viewers at the time “He [Duane Lee] hasn’t been to work in I don’t know how many months. He is not paying any bills”. She added “we can’t go broke because someone is not working.” Dog added “he is causing strife all throughout the office.”
