Attorneys for Baker and Emily Mayfield filed a petition in Travis County District Court to request information regarding
the potential misappropriation of $12 million by an Austin investment firm where Mayfield’s family members work.
The petition was filed Tuesday in the 250th District Court and attorneys are asking the defendants — Camwood Capital Management Group, Camwood Ventures, Texas Contract Manufacturing Group, Unitech,
Apex Machining and Lor-Van — to turn over financial records from 2018-2023 and for witnesses to provide oral depositions to help
the Mayfields figure out where their money has gone over the course of five years.
“Petitioners simply do not know if their money has been properly and competently invested, has been stolen or otherwise misappropriated, or something in between,” the document stated.
The filing is not a lawsuit. The filing said all the Mayfields want is information about where their money went,
but since they have been “denied access to this information,” the petition was filed in order to obtain it.
“It is too early to know whether a suit is likely or even anticipated,” the filing said. “At this time, Petitioners have been deprived the information and documents needed to analyze whether their
assets have been misappropriated.” KXAN reached out to both Mayfield’s attorney and the Camwood Capital Management Group but didn’t immediately hear back.
We will update this story with any information they provide. According to the filing, all of the witness contacts listed for the defendants are members of Baker Mayfield’s immediate family.
TCMG is a subsidiary of the Camwood Capital Management Group (which includes Camwood Ventures) while Unitech, Apex and Lor-Van were all acquired by TCMG since 2018, according to the filing.
