The lawsuit accuses Adamson of receiving approximately $300,000 from the preservation council since 2017 and alleges that Adamson and Warfel tried to characterize a $120,000 loan to Adamson in 2017 as reimbursement for a debt the preservation council owed. Additionally, Adamson allegedly received $72,000 in 2018, which was characterized as rent paid after the preservation council sold its property, and in 2021, the preservation council allegedly paid Adamson approximately $109,303 for unknown purposes, the statement said.
