Lisa Bagby Judgment

Horse boarding and riding facility Rock Creek Stables was awarded a $100,256 judgment against Otis public figure Lisa Bagby, who gained notoriety during the investigation of railroad engineer Cameron Shelden’s death in 2019 and her subsequent movie career.

According to court documents filed in Lincoln County Circuit Court, Judge Thomas O. Branford signed the judgment March 3 for $100,256 –which does not include attorney’s fees — against Bagby for not filing an appearance or answer during the time allowed. An order of default was entered against her.

The documents reveal Rock Creek Equestrian Services, LLC was seeking $50,000 for defamation, alleging Bagby sent text messages and posted false and defamatory statements online, stating Rock Creek Stables was unethical and wrongfully held horses. An additional $50,256 was sought for “intentional interference with economic relations.”

Justin Alderman, who owns and operates Rock Creek Stables, said in a statement:

“In October of last year our company chose to proceed through the appropriate venue of civil litigation to resolve serious actions perpetrated by Lisa Bagby and others associated with her. …While it is unfortunate for it to have become necessary to seek resolution through legal action, we are delighted that the court has signed a judgment in our favor.”

In a complaint entered Oct. 29, 2020, attorneys for Alderman said Bagby had sold a horse named Bo to an employee of Rock Creek Stables. The employee paid for the care and boarding of Bo until Bagby told law enforcement she was the rightful owner and made entry to retrieve the horse. Bagby and another defendant took Bo away from the stables in an attempt to transport him, but the horse was startled and ran back to Rock Creek Stables where it was secured. After the incident, a defamatory campaign began, with Bagby and others taking to Facebook, Google and Trip Advisor to defame Alderman’s business. The documents further state personal threats and harassment were directed towards Alderman.

Alderman said he is aware of multiple criminal charges, including criminal trespass, against Bagby, though any requests for information are directed to the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office as the case is under investigation.

Bagby was ordered to remove any defamatory content she posted on social media or Google reviews and is enjoined from posting defamatory comments regarding Alderman’s personal or business social media.

Also named in the complaint were Green Acres Beach & Trail Rides, Sand Dollar Ranch, Happy Trails Feed & Tack and four other individuals.

  1. Ms. Bagby was not aware of this lawsuit until now and is not aware of having ever been served with any summons or complaint or other document in this case HMMMMMMM Does she not have a mail box? Smells fishy.

  2. How good is an attorney who has to leave public comments on a news article as opposed to reaching out directly to an individual. I can only hope if I ever sue someone, they employ Mr. Buchanan as there legal counsel!

  3. This posting is itself defamatory, as is the statement attributed to Justin Alderman.

    Ms. Bagby was not aware of this lawsuit until now and is not aware of having ever been served with any summons or complaint or other document in this case. She has never been charged with any crime – the assertion that she has is defamatory and false. Moreover, this lawsuit against Ms. Bagby is without any merit. The Rock Creek Stables, Mr. Alderman, and this website should immediately retract and correct their defamatory statements.

    Mr. Werner, you have had to retract prior comments about Ms. Bagby that I believe were also defamatory. Failure to do so in this instance may result in legal exposure. -Paul Buchanan
