Dr. Lucious Randle, Kafi Inc and Badgerin’ Debt Collectin’ Lawyers Acting Like Real Scumbags

What does Dr Randle’s Daughter and Baker Botts Lawyer, Lauren Randle have to say about her father’s legal woes and perceived asset stripping?




JUL 19, 2022 | REPUBLISHED BY LIT: JUL 19, 2022
MAR 10, 2023

On Dec. 30, 2022 this case was dismissed for want of prosecution.

The legal Bandit Shack has refiled on March 7, 2023.

DCA Generic Letter issued Nov. 21, Docketed late on Nov. 28 and dismissal for want of prosecution set for Dec. 21, 2022. As LIT expected, when it’s involving lawyers, the case will be buried – but it’s always available on LIT.

Update (Aug 24 /Sept 8 /Oct 9 / Oct 26, 2022):

Case Frozen Since Filing July 19/21 and LIT’s Article, Why?

In 2015, Dr Lucious Randle borrowed $210k with a repayment of $2.3k per month for his business assets.

Randle offered land at 0 Dagg Rd, Houston 77048 as security for the loan, as well as the assets of his practice (Randle’s an eye doctor).

He defaulted in May 2021 and now the debt collectin’ law firm is calling.

The question is, whether these lawyers did their homework as to Dr Randle’s family tree, as his daughter, Lauren Randle, is a ‘Senior Associate’ at Baker Botts, and her discipline is aligned with the case in question.

The lawyer responsible for filing the debt collection claim is Bruce M Badger of Badger Law, PLLC.

For sure, the debt collection letters were sent to the home address of Dr Randle at MacGregor Way.  However, the home was “sold in 2019”, but based on the buyers per HCAD, that could be a purchase and rent-back-to-own scheme we’ve witnessed on LIT before.

Furthermore, it would appear from the public records available, Dr. Randle is involved with a special warranty deed or similar type avoidance scheme with KAFI Inc., despite the claimed assignments or liens re Dagg Road by Badger and his client.

Badger also seeks to be the foreclosure substitute trustee, despite the legal requirement in Texas to show foreclosure trustees are appointed by the servicer and separate from their debt collecting attorneys.

So this looks like another LIT Real Scumbag Series article, where everyone in the lawsuit is trying to swindle everyone else.

BAHAI FAITH Adherents value unity, education

Bahais will mark founder’s birthday with celebration at Midtown center

Nov. 11, 2006

As members of the Bahai Faith, Giti Bahar and Elham Abbassi were part of a persecuted minority in their native Iran.




















It wasn’t always that way.

The Bahais, whose faith does not allow them to become involved in politics, freely practiced their religion until the Shah was overthrown in the 1979 Islamic revolution.

“They closed the Bahai centers; well-known Bahais had their property confiscated, were put into jail, and some were killed,” Bahar said. “They didn’t accept our marriage certificate, and if someone died it was difficult to perform the ceremony because the Bahai cemetery was confiscated.”

Neither could the two women attend college — a particular insult because education is an important principle of the Bahai faith.

Bahai youths have been denied access to higher education for more than 25 years, according to the U.N. Human Rights Commission. The current Iranian government regards Bahais as “unprotected infidels.”

The conflict in the largely Muslim country dates to the founding of the Bahai religion in the 1860s by Mirza Husayn Ali, a Persian nobleman. He took the name Baha’u’llah and announced he was God’s most recent messenger. Most Muslims believe Muhammad was God’s last messenger.

Local Bahais will celebrate the birthday of Baha’u’llah tonight at Midtown’s Houston Bahai Center, where Bahar and Abbassi met after they both emigrated from Iran and wound up in Texas.

Their decisions to leave Iran were not made quickly.

Because of their beliefs — including one God, world peace, racial unity, gender equality, universal education — Bahais are said to be some of the most optimistic people in the world, according to local members.

“We believe there will be peace,” said Cheryl Love Hanks, a member of the Houston spiritual assembly that conducts the business of the Bahai Center. “We are moving through a process that will result in peace on the planet.”

That belief may help explain why Bahar stayed in Iran 20 years after the revolution before deciding to leave her homeland.

“We kept thinking that something would happen and they had to let us go to college,” she said. “But it didn’t, so I got married and had two children. It’s hard to leave your country, but I was thinking of the future of my kids. The time we decided to leave was when the government started issuing passports.”

Abbassi and her family fled from Iran to Pakistan in 1989. They left without passports and waited 16 months before traveling to Houston, where her older brother had lived since 1982.

Once in the U.S., Abbassi began attending college. She graduated from Temple University in Philadelphia and the University of Texas dental school. She’s now a local dentist — and Bahar’s mentor.

Bahar, now 43, arrived here in August 2000 and graduated from the University of Houston in May with a degree in biology. Following in Abbassi’s footsteps, Bahar has applied to dental school.

Neither of the women are surprised that Bahai Faith has spread from Iran to more than 200 countries.

“I think people are attracted to the faith because it is very modern and optimistic,” Bahar said. “It teaches what is happening right now in the news — the facts of our lives, racial unity, equality of men and women. We have all these principles, and Bahais walk the talk.”

Persians like Bahar and Abbassi are in the majority at Houston’s Bahai Center. The rest of the membership is multicultural.

Hanks, an African-American lawyer, is a former Roman Catholic. She became a Bahai in 1981.

“If I wasn’t a Bahai, I don’t know how I would sort out everything that is going on in the world,” Hanks said. “I would feel so pessimistic. It was a message I felt helped my own personal journey as well as one that could bring peace to the world.”

There are no clergy in the Bahai Faith, so members take turns making Sunday presentations. Jim Benvie, a native of Dundee, Scotland, spoke at this past Sunday’s devotional program.

A Protestant by birth, Benvie became a Bahai after 9/11. Before that, he had been skeptical of all religions.

“It was 9/11 that changed my mind,” Benvie said. “The Bahai Faith seemed to offer more of a balance, and I believe the structure and the way they do things was the only way to heal these problems.”

He had begun to learn about the faith in 1998 when he met his future wife, Juliet Hwang, a Chinese-American Bahai.

“The Bahai Faith gives you world-embracing ideas, but obviously we have to work with other religions,” he said, “and we want to.”
