Tyre ti­tan hit­ting skids

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

DE­THRONED tyre king Bob Jane has lost the latest in the never- end­ing le­gal bat­tles with his es­tranged son as the epic fam­ily rift con­tin­ues to widen.

He now faces pun­ish­ment for on­go­ing con­tempt of court over fail­ure to pay more than $ 100,000 in court fines — one of sev­eral out­stand­ing fines he has thumbed his nose at.

Son Rod­ney Jane, who now con­trols the Bob Jane T- Mart em­pire, has pre­vi­ously sug­gested his dad should be jailed for con­tin­u­ing to ig­nore court or­ders.

The pair fell out af­ter Rod­ney took over the T- Mart busi­ness, with Bob ac­cus­ing him of swip­ing the com­pany he ran for 40 years from him and send­ing him broke.

The pair have been locked in bit­ter le­gal bat­tles since 2011, with Bob claim­ing he has lost al­most all of a $ 100 mil­lion em­pire.

It is just the latest in a string of le­gal blows to Mr Jane.
