James Tackett, the former administrator of the Letcher County Kentucky personal care home Golden Years Rest Home, has requested the Kentucky Court of Appeals stop proceedings to liquidate and dissolve the corporation that operated Golden Years.

The move to liquidate comes after the court appointed receiver, who oversees the daily operations of the home, reported to the court that Golden Year’s debts exceeded its income. The court is also determining whether to turn the rest home over to a for-profit corporation headed by William Shackleford.

Tackett’s attorney filed a motion asking the court to issue a temporary order “directing the circuit court to cease the liquidation and involuntary dissolution of Golden Years and to prohibit the actions by the receiver” pending a court of appeals hearing, the Kentucky Herald-Leader reported. Tackett requested an independent and neutral receiver be ordered.

Tackett is facing state and federal charges that he stole over a half-million dollars that was intended for the rest home residents. He also was convicted of abuse after a 2009 altercation with a resident. His grandson Jonah Tackett, has been charged with two counts of witness bribery, and other felonies.

The Golden Years Rest Home which has 28 residents, has been cited for numerous health and safety violations. disclaimer: This article: Former Rest Home Administrator Requests Actions Against Him Be Stopped was posted on Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011 at 8:43 pm at and is filed under Nursing Home Abuse Lawsuits.
