$16,250 payment ordered for younger Haysbert


November 14, 1997

A Baltimore District Court judge yesterday ordered the parent company of Parks Sausage to pay $16,250 to the company's former president for consulting services.

District Court Judge H. Gary Bass ruled that the payment was required by a consulting agreement between Parks LLC, the parent company, and Reginald Haysbert, the former president.

Haysbert and his father, former company Chairman Raymond V. Haysbert, sold the bankrupt company last year to a group led by former football star Franco Harris. In the lawsuit, Haysbert charged that Harris' company failed to live up to an agreement to pay him $150,000 over two years.

The payments to Haysbert were supposed to be made in monthly installments over two years, starting last October.

Yesterday's judgment applied to three months of payments. Robert F. Dashiell, Haysbert's attorney, said his client has filed separate suits for other months.

"It's a choice between paying Mr. Haysbert and paying the men and women on the line," said Stanford Gann Jr., an attorney representing Parks LLC.
