According to court documents, Coonan is being sued by Delaware-based Iselo Holdings. The documents indicate Iselo and Coonan entered talks to merge last summer and Iselo loaned Coonan $585,000. The money was to help Coonan make payroll and other day-to-day business operations.

Former employees of ARM Services may contact the Oklahoma Wage and Hour Division in Tulsa to file a complaint to get their missing paychecks:
