HOUSTON ATTORNEY FILES LAWSUIT AGAINST NAACP AND ITS EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR!

Press Release:

Frye and Associates, PLLC, announces that they have filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of Ms. Tracie Jackson against the NAACP after learning that the National and Houston offices were aware of the questionable financial activities of Houston Executive Director Yolanda Smith, and took no action.

Based on new information that has been released, including 1) the findings of the National NAACP 2006 audit and 2) the suspension of the Basic Civil Law Services and the Interest On Attorneys Trust Accounts grants by the Texas Access to Justice Foundation, the attorneys for Tracie Jackson are filing a lawsuit against the National NAACP office, the NAACP Houston Branch and Yolanda Smith.

The allegations in the suit (see attached complaint) consist of violations pursuant to Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act: RICO, the Texas state laws regarding breach of fiduciary duty and negligent retention and hiring of Yolanda Smith.

“It is clear that both the National and Houston NAACP offices were fully aware of the activities of Yolanda Smith and allowed them to continue” said Jackson’s lead attorney, Jeremy Brown.
