This person is a former sidekick of Manuel Chavez, III of Carson City, Nevada.  There are rumors this person is connected with Ed Butowsky of Dallas, Texas (see Aaron Rich lawsuit).

With a reputation as an Internet gadfly and so-called general troublemaker, Thomas Schoenberger has been named in a defamation, libel and slander lawsuit filed by Gabe Hoffman in Palm Beach County, Florida.

The Florida complaint takes Schoenberger to task for insinuating that Gabe Hoffman is operating within some kind of Hollywood pedophile protection ring.  These accusations appear eerily similar (albeit about different parties) to those of David Charles Hawkins, a sidekick of CrowdSource The Truth.

What is of interest is the rich history that Mr. Schoenberger has in an area related to “stalking” — the very issue complained so much about by Jason Goodman.  The premise is that Mr. Schoenberger may have developed significant skills in the are of cyber harassment operations that he used in SHADOWBOX STRATEGIES with Manuel Chavez, III to create cyber havoc for Jason Goodman.


There is an interesting Internet thread that dates back to 2010 that describes issues related to unpaid artists associated with an entertainment group.


“Thomas Schoenberger then proceeded to defame and slander anybody that didn’t go along with him using Yelp and many other community websites. Thomas also created a website posting all kinds of false information and went as far as to copyright as Star Sounds Productions 2009 on the website. He registered it to Star Sounds Productions but listed himself as administrative contact with his email address and contact phone number. The website was taken down by the Star Sounds attorneys. Why would Star Sounds Productions put up a website and then slander itself. ” [from the above listed web page]

The Napa Valley Register posted the following article about Mr. Schoenberger in 2005.



As several Napa area talent agencies find themselves coming out from under legal scrutiny, two others are moving toward a courtroom confrontation.

Those two are Napa-based North Bay Entertainment and Vallejo-based disc jockey and talent agent Randy Harris.

The dispute between the two involves a broken contract, the presence of a gun at a key meeting and what North Bay’s Thomas Schoenberger characterizes as professional rivalry.

Harris’ suit, filed in Sonoma County, seeks more than $48,000 in back commissions, interest and attorney fees based on a written agreement with North Bay that was consummated in 2002.

In court documents, Schoenberger blames Harris for the falling out and said he only entered the deal “because of mistake, fraud, duress or undue influence as a result of plaintiff’s expressed and implied threats of bodily harm to defendant.”

In an interview last week, Schoenberger said he is likely to file a countersuit against Harris.

Harris started working with Schoenberger’s North Bay Entertainment in 2000. In court papers Harris stated he was invited to join as an agent with the firm, but Schoenberger said in a document filed with the court that he was coerced into entering the deal.

Schoenberger claims to have entered into the contract only after Harris showed him a loaded gun, “and then presented the contract for defendant’s signature.”

Accounts of the gun incident vary greatly. In court papers, Harris said, “We both like guns, and he said he’d like to see it. It happened when I still worked for him. We went into a different office and drew the blinds, and I put it on the table.”

Harris said the Beretta .380 was not loaded, but Schoenberger says he considered it a threat and “turned white.”

The contract dispute is scheduled for a jury trial in Sonoma County Superior Court on Oct. 21 before Judge Knoel Owen. Schoenberger associate Eric Symons said a mediation session has been requested for July 7. A previous settlement offer of $7,500 went nowhere.

Those dates are almost certain to change since attorneys for both Harris and Schoenberger say they have potential calendar conflicts.








Readers of this blog will recall that Hawkins has been making accusations about “pedophile protection rings” for over a decade.

Many readers of this blog will recall that Thomas Schoenberger was a key witness in both the Robert David Steele lawsuit against Jason Goodman and the Aaron Rich lawsuit against Ed Butowsky.




According to Denise Matteau, Corpus Christi, Texas (a one time Schoenberger paid associate) Thomas Schoenberger worked with Manuel Chavez, III to create a “reputation destruction” service known as SHADOWBOX.  SHADOWBOX was an apparent infant company in Dallas, Texas contracted to assist Ed Botowsky.

Botowsky had interactions with both Schoenberger and Chavez (who operates a social media footprint known as DEFANGO and LARP WARS).  Chavez recently distributed video content with an hour hour long interview with Gabe Hoffman on or about September 19, 2019.

The SHADOWBOX initiative apparently involved Chavez, Schoenberger and an operative from the Democratic National Committee known as Trevor Fitzgibbon (circa Fall of 2017).
