Former Reagor Dykes Chief Financial Officer Shane Smith filed a motion to change the venue of an ongoing lawsuit.

In September, First Bank and Trust filed a lawsuit against FirstCapital Bank and a list of people including Smith, Bart Reagor, and Rick Dykes. The lawsuit by FB&T accused FirstCapital of profiting from check kiting conducted by the Reagor Dykes Companies.

KAMC News reports in a document filed by an attorney for Smith claims that “the improbability of securing a jury panel that has not been prejudiced or impacted, directly or indirectly, by the alleged actions of Reagor Dykes Auto Group puts Smith’s Constitutional rights in jeopardy.”

Smith requested that lawsuit be transferred on a change of venue to Dallas.
