Eric's history of lies
In the early 1990's Eric Ryan was the first student in Chaminade history to be convicted of forging student signatures and election ballots thus beginning his career of graphic design so he continue forging documents. He later took Chaminade to court for defamation of character.
About the same time he also tried to sue Andy Anderson for defamation of character and lost. A judge doesn't believe him and the complaint is dismissed.
Eric stiffs creditors and makes clients pay more than he owes....
In 2008, DTC Investments took Eric Ryan to court for not paying his office rent at 1001 Dillingham Blvd STE 303, Honolulu, HI 96817. He claims he paid them. A judge doesn't believe him and orders him to pay $10,851. (Public Record, Civil court document 1Rc08-1-10801)
Currently capitol one and the Kai Makana community association is also in collections with Ryan who has not paid his bills owed to them. (See this on the Hawaii State Judiciary Hooiki website)
Ryan tells a sob story to John Carroll about how he was taken advantage of. John Carroll represents him for free and gives him a $6,000 loan so Eric can pay his mortgage.
About the same time he is being fired from Stop Rail Now where he lead the campaign. He was fired for not being able to come up with receipts for expenditures and for making unauthorized expenditures.
After he is fired he comes up with new invoices that Stop Rail Leaders never saw before. Despite paying Ryan over $4000 a month, Ryan claims money is still owed and he takes over Stop Rail websites as his own and claims he owns their logo. Stop Rail moves on instead of fighting Ryan who also stole their email list and tries to fund raise on their old sites keeping the money.
Meanwhile, Ryan convinces Carroll that he could help him in his office in exchange for free rent while he gets back on his feet. Carroll loans Ryan more money to pay his mortgage. Carroll decides to run for Governor and appoints Ryan as his campaign manager.
Carroll later fires Ryan and asks him to leave his office after Ryan cannot produce receipts for campaign expenditures that he charged the Carroll campaign and for violent outbursts and threatening remarks to volunteers. Ryan calls himself a whistle blower to the campaign spending commission that Carroll laundered money (same claim he is making about Pine). He sends Carroll new invoices saying they are past due ( same thing he did to pine). These invoices were never seen before. He files lengthy complaints to the Campaign Spending Commission claiming corruption and that he was fired for being a whisleblower. he entered one document of a forged contract between Carroll and Ryan that Carroll was to give Ryan $6000 a month in pay as evidence.
This is the same amount John gave to Eric to help him out as a favor! The document was deemed a forgery.
Ryan claims Carroll still owes him money.
He takes over Carroll's websites and email contacts and harasses him and his contacts for months.
At last, the story behind the check for $3150
In 2010, Kym Pine pays Daniel Brackins $2000 to develop a website for her 2010 campaign.
Brackins disappears and moves to the mainland. Eric Ryan starts calling Pine asking why her website is not being updated. Unknown to Pine, Brackins has been Ryan's business partner since 2007. With just a couple months left before the election Pine is unable to get another web designer so she hires Ryan for a month and a half. Pine pays Ryan over $3000 for what he calls a "Rush job".
The election is over and Pine asks for the password codes of her website that he changed. Pine is unable to get return calls for several months. In April Ryan gives Pine an invoice for over $2000 saying she can have her website back if she pays this invoice. He claims it is 6 months past due. Neither Pine nor her treasurer have ever seen the invoice before.
Pine agrees to pay it through her spokesperson John Gollner but wants Ryan to sign documents that she will no longer owe him any more money. Ryan says she must keep him on as her designer till after the 2012 election and must sign documents endorsing him for 5 years. She refuses to endorse him and to keep him on staff. Ryan illegally takes over Pine's legislative website (which he never designed and is run by pine's legislative staff) and takes over her campaign website with the help of his business partner Daniel Brackins who registered the website domains in his name unknown to Pine.
An FBI agent tells Brackins to not give website ownership to Ryan. Pine also pleads with Brackins not to give the sites to Ryan who is harassing Pine. Despite this, Brackins gives the sites to Ryan and he continues his harassment, steals her email list and sends out libelous statements about Pine.
Brackins, who had not done any work for Pine since early 2010. Tells a reporter that Pine owes him money too. He doesn't tell the reporter that he was Ryan's business partner since 2007. Pine has never received any invoices from Brackins since she last paid him.
Brackins website shows he is with Edeleman PR . He also lists clients such as Adidas, Microsoft, Bush/Cheney, Adidas, ABC, FOX, JcPenney, Hertz, Mercedes, Victoria Secret and more. It is unclear how he or why he partnered with Ryan.
