Plaintiffs, Danny and Lorrie A. O'Brien, on their own behalves and, as shareholders, on
2 behalf of and for the benefit of International Charter Incorporated of Wyoming ("ICI
3 Wyoming"), and complain and allege as follows:
4 I. PARTIES
1.1 Plaintiffs Danny and Lorrie A. O'Brien (hereafter "the O'Briens" or "Plaintiffs
6 O'Brien") are husband and wife, residing in Lakewood, Pierce County, Washington, and form a
7 marital community under Washington law. The O'Briens, collectively, have a 45% shareholder
8 interest in ICI Wyoming.
9 1.2 Upon information and belief, Defendants Brian J. and Peggy L. Boquist (hereafter
"the Boquists" or "Defendants Boquist") are husband and wife, residing in Dallas, Polk County,
11 Oregon. The Boquists, collectively, have a 45% shareholder interest in ICI Wyoming.
12 1.3 Upon information and belief, Defendants Marcus Hines and Jane Doe Hines
13 (hereafter "the Hines" or "Defendants Hines") are husband and wife, residing in Green Valley,
14 Pima County, Arizona. Marcus Hines has a 10% shareholder interest in ICI Wyoming.
1.4 ICI Wyoming is, and was at all material times, a Wyoming corporation. Upon
16 information and belief, ICI Wyoming has, and at all material times had, its principal place of
17 business in Dallas, Polk County, Oregon.
18 II. JURISDICTION
19 2.1 This Court has original jurisdiction over the subject matter of this action pursuant
to 28 US.c. 1332(a) (diversity jurisdiction). The aggregate amounts in controversy exceed the
21 sum of $75,000.00, exclusive of interest and costs. The parties are completely diverse, because
22 the action is between Plaintiffs who are citizens of the State of Washington and Defendants who
23 are respectively citizens of the State of Oregon (Defendants Boquist), the State of Arizona
24 (Defendants Hines), and the States of Wyoming and Oregon (Defendant ICI Wyoming).1
26 I Because ICI Wyoming is adverse to this action, it must be aligned as a party defendant. See Doctor v. Harring/ on.
196 U.S. 579, 587, 25 S.Ct. 355, 49 L.Ed. 606 (1905), and Smith v. Sperling. 354 U.S. 91 , 96-97, 77 S.Ct. 1112, 1

4.10 ICI Wyoming has, as its principal asset, a contract with DTS to act as a
2 subcontractor to DTS's prime contract with the United States Marines under DTS 08-D-0001
3 Camp Lejeune Task Order ("DTS Contract"). The balance of the DTS Contract, through April
4 30,2012, enables ICI Wyoming to complete approximately 16 missions, generating significant
revenues and profits for ICI Wyoming and its shareholders.
6 4.11 ICI Wyoming has an option to extend the DTS Contract for one additional year,
7 through April 2013, potentially generating revenues and profits for ICI Wyoming and its
8 shareholders in excess of $2,000,000.00.
9 4.12 As of the end of calendar year 2011, ICI Wyoming had a projected cash balance
of approximately $217,839.00.
1 1 4.13 It had been the practice and course of dealing of ICI Wyoming and its Board of
12 Directors to distribute to ICI Wyoming's shareholders ordinary income andlor dividends in the
13 form of all remaining cash balances of ICI Wyoming at year-end. Income and dividends
14 distributed to shareholders in 2010 exceeded $1,000,000.00.
4.14 Since 2007, the parties, as shareholders and directors ofICI Wyoming, generally
16 discussed, without formal agreement, investing some of the income and profits from ICI
17 Wyoming to other business opportunities and entities, including the following companies
18 principally funded by the operations of ICI Wyoming and owned equally (50/50) by Plaintiffs
19 O' Brien and Defendants Boquist (hereafter "Jointly Held Companies"):
1. Powder River Cartridge Company, LLC (Oregon) ("PRCC Oregon");
2. ICI Cattle & Timber Company LLC (Nevada) ("ICIC & TC Nevada"); and
21
3. ICI Cattle & Timber Company LLC (Oregon) ("ICIC & TC Oregon").
22
4.15 Additionally, the Boquists and the O'Briens owned equal shares in International
23
Charter Incorporated of Oregon ("ICI Oregon"), the predecessor entity to ICI Wyoming.
24
4. 16 Beginning in the spring of 20 11 , a dispute arose between Defendants Boquist and
Plaintiffs O'Brien regarding the continuing direction and operations of ICI Wyoming and related

company assets and projects, including the Jointly Held Companies, which were and continue to
2 be funded primarily by the operation and assets of ICI Wyoming.
3 4.17 ' After Plaintiffs raised objections to certain actions and activities of Defendants
4 Boquist with regard to their exercise of control over ICI Wyoming and the Jointly Held
Companies, Defendants began to exclude Plaintiffs from access to the books and records of ICI
6 Wyoming and from any decisional control of or participation in ICI Wyoming.
7 4.18 On or around December 16, 2011, Defendants Boquists made demand on
8 Plaintiffs that Plaintiffs accept a buyout of their interests in ICI Wyoming and the Jointly Held
9 Companies under an unreasonable short timeline and for nominal consideration.
4.19 To force Plaintiffs to accept their terms, Defendant Brian J. Boquist, in his
11 capacity as Executive Vice President and Director of ICI Wyoming, issued, on December 20,
12 2011, a 10-Day Meeting Notice to the directors of ICI Wyoming, including Plaintiffs, advising
13 of his intent to conduct the year-end business of the corporation, including the determination of
14 year-end disbursements and dividends, the termination of the employment and formal dismissal
of Plaintiff Danny O'Brien as Director, and an action to "bar" Defendant Lorrie A. O'Brien from
16 serving in any capacity as Director ("Meeting of Directors").
17 4.20 Plaintiffs requested that the Meeting of Directors be postponed; the request was
18 denied.
19 4.21 On December 26, before the proposed Meeting of Directors, Plaintiffs requested,
through counsel, consistent with the provisions of the Wyoming Business Corporations Act
21 (Section 17-16-1605), to inspect the books, records and documents oflCI Wyoming. Plaintiffs'
22 request was ignored.
23 4.22 On December 29, Plaintiffs, in their capacity as directors, served their written
24 Notice of Dissent and Objection to the Meeting of Directors. That afternoon, Plaintiffs were
advised that the Meeting of Directors would not be held as noticed.

4.23 Over Plaintiffs' written Notice of Dissent and Objection, and despite being
2 advised that the Meeting of Directors would not be held, Plaintiffs received, by overnight mail
3 on December 30, a "Directors Resolution" dated December 22, 2011, signed by directors Brian J.
4 Boquist, Peggy L. Boquist, and Marcus Hines indicating that said directors had taken the action
as noticed. As a result, Defendants Boquist and Hines are the remaining directors ofICI
6 Wyoming.
7 4.24 Following the tennination of Plaintiffs as directors, ICI Wyoming's in-house
8 bookkeeper resigned. Prior to his resignation, he had maintained, at Defendant Boquists' sole
9 direction, the books and records of ICI Wyoming and, to some extent, the Jointly Held
Companies.
11 4.25 Following their forced tennination as directors, Plaintiffs subsequently
12 discovered, through the infonnation obtained from ICI's fonner bookkeeper, that Defendants
13 Boquist, in their capacities as directors and officers of ICI Wyoming, and in the course and scope
14 of their exercising sole control over all the corporate books, records and financial accounts oflCI
Wyoming since 2007, diverted or caused to be diverted substantial cash assets of ICI Wyoming
16 to their exclusive benefit, and to the detriment of ICI Wyoming and its shareholders, including
17 the O'Briens.
18 4.26 On infonnation and belief, the Boquists diverted assets and funds oflCI
19 Wyoming to pay personal expenses of the Boquists, and to fund other projects and/or entities
owned or controlled exclusively by Defendants Boquist, including but not limited to a new
21 entity, Powder River Cartridge Company, LLC, organized and filed under the laws of the State
22 of Wyoming in 2008.
23 4.27 Through this wholly owned entity, Powder River Cartridge Company, LLC
24 (organized in Wyoming), the Boquists directed thousands of dollars of revenue generated by ICI
Wyoming to their own use and without Plaintiffs' knowledge or consent, including but not

limited to political campaign contributions for causes supported or advocated by Defendant
2 Brian ] . Boquist, in his capacity as an Oregon State Senator.
3 4.28 Following the action of Defendants to remove Plaintiffs as directors, Defendant
4 Brian ]. Boquist has recently approached DTS to sell back to DTS the value of the remaining
missions on the current DTS Contract for less than the contract value to ICI Wyoming.
6 Defendant Boquist has also advised DTS that ICI Wyoming will not seek to obtain the available
7 one year extension of the DTS Contract. Both actions have caused or may cause imminent risk
8 of loss to ICI Wyoming, thereby causing direct and irreparable injury to its shareholders,
9 including the O'Briens, valued at hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost revenues and profits.
4.29 The forced removal of Plaintiffs as directors, the continuing use by Defendants
11 Boquist of corporate funds for their personal business interests and expenses, and Defendants'
12 subsequent actions to impact or cancel the current and future value of the DTS Contract, has
13 caused or will cause irreparable damage and loss to Plaintiffs, as well as to all the shareholders,
14 in amounts to be determined at the time of trial, but at no less than Plaintiffs' 45% share of the
projected cash balance ofiCI Wyoming at the end of December 2011, estimated at
16 approximately $97,650.00 or more in anticipated year-end profits and dividends, plus their share
17 of the future revenues generated by the DTS Contract, estimated to exceed $2,000,000.00
18 through April 2013.

5. 1 Plaintiffs repeat and re-allege each and every allegation in the foregoing
21 paragraphs as though fully set forth herein.
22 5.2 Plaintiffs, as minority shareholders ofiCI Wyoming, seek judgment against
23 Defendants Boquist and Hines (collectively "Defendants"), as ICI Wyoming's controlling
24 shareholders, controlling officers, and controlling directors. Plaintiffs seek to remedy
Defendants' breach of the fiduciary duties of loyalty and care, misappropriation of corporate

opportunities, waste of corporate assets, self-dealing, oppression of shareholder reasonable
2 expectations, and unfair competition.
3 5.3 This action is not a collusive one to confer jurisdiction that the Court would
4 otherwise lack.
5.4 After Plaintiffs O' Brien were summarily discharged as directors, a demand was
6 not made on ICI Wyoming to obtain action by the board of directors relating to this lawsuit
7 because Defendants, who sit on and completely control the board, would have voted against any
8 such action. Therefore, a demand by Plaintiffs that the ICI Wyoming board of directors initiate
9 this lawsuit would have been pointless, futile, and a waste of time.
5.5 Irreparable injury to ICI Wyoming would result if Plaintiffs were required to
11 make demand and wait for the expiration of the ninety day period foreseen under W.S. 17-16
12 742 before bringing suit. The irreparable harm would take the form of the loss of the full value
13 of ICI Wyoming' s principal asset, the DTS Contract.
14 5.6 In so far as is just and reasonable, Plaintiffs seek direct recovery to prevent an
award from reverting to the wrongdoers, i.e., the Defendants, who remain in control oflCI
16 Wyoming.
17 5.7 Plaintiffs also seek punitive damages on account of Defendants' willful, wanton,
18 and oppressive misconduct under the provisions of applicable Wyoming law.
19 VI. SECOND CLAIM FOR RELIEF -- AN ACCOUNTING
6.1 Plaintiffs repeat and re-allege each and every allegation in the foregoing
21 paragraphs as though fully set forth herein.
22 6.2 Plaintiffs have given Defendants written notice of Plaintiffs' demand to inspect
23 and copy records of ICI Wyoming, which are in the possession and control of Defendants.
24 6.3 Defendants have refused to comply fully with Plaintiffs' demand.
6.4 Plaintiffs seek a court order directing Defendants to provide Plaintiffs with a full

VII. THIRD CLAIM FOR RELIEF -- WRONGFUL TERMINATION

7.1 Plaintiffs repeat and re-allege each and every allegation in the foregoing
paragraphs as though fully set forth herein.
6
7.2 Defendants wrongfully terminated Plaintiff Danny O'Brien as an employee and
7
both Danny and Lorrie O'Brien as directors of leI Wyoming after Plaintiffs sought to resolve the
8
9 issues raised by Defendants' fiduciary breaches. Defendants' termination of Plaintiffs was
motivated by retaliation and Defendants' hope to insulate themselves from litigation by
1 1
"squeezing-out" Plaintiffs from leI Wyoming. The termination of Plaintiffs was wrongful and
12
in violation of both public policy and leI Wyoming's bylaws.
13
7.3 Plaintiffs seek punitive damages on account of Defendants' willful , wanton, and
14
oppressive misconduct.
VIII. FOURTH CLAIM FOR RELIEF -- APPOINTMENT OF A CUSTODIAN
16
17 8.1 Plaintiffs repeat and re-allege each and every allegation in the foregoing
18
paragraphs as though fully set forth herein.
19
8.2 As a direct and non-derivative claim, Plaintiffs seek the appointment of a
custodian for leI Wyoming because "those in control of the corporation are acting fraudulently
21
and irreparable injury to the corporation is threatened or being suffered." W.S. 17-16-748(a)(ii)
22
8.3 The appointment of a custodian for leI Wyoming is reasonably necessary, and
23
24
other available remedies are inadequate. The appointment of a custodian will serve the best
interests of leI Wyoming and its shareholders and creditors.

committed self-dealing, oppressed shareholder reasonable expectations, caused or

Plaintiffs.

b. On infonnation and belief, Defendants deny or will deny the allegations

contained in the preceding subparagraph.
