EXHIBIT E From: Sent: To: Cc: Subject: Dana Tucker Davis <> Wednesday, August 17, 2016 1:58 PM Michael Lambros; Bussert, Chris RE: State v. Hankerson All, Let me be clear – my client is NOT in possession of any intellectual property of his mother’s. He signed a statement asserting that he has no ownership rights to her name or the intellectual property. The memorabilia and replicas are physically in the restaurants. The restaurants are NOT under the control or management of my client. The State, through the Receiver, has control and decision making authority regarding any requests from Mrs. Knight McDowell. My client has no desire to fight his mother for the use of her name. He has bigger fights to handle at this time. Thanks, Dana. Dana M. Tucker Davis, Esq.

From: Michael Lambros [] Sent: Wednesday, August 17, 2016 12:25 PM To: Cc:; Dana Tucker Davis <> Subject: State v. Hankerson Chris: Thank you for your patience in waiting for my response. I have received conflicting information/claims related to the intellectual property rights and ownership rights of certain memorabilia purportedly owned by your client. My understanding is that Hankerson’s is claiming ownership of some if not all of the memorabilia. Further and I know he signed the release but I have been told by counsel that the corporations/businesses and/or Hankerson do have the rights to use the intellectual property. All to say this seems to be a battle between your client and her son and his companies. In addition, the Receiver has control of the businesses’ assets and probably needs to be involved in this discussion. If your client, the Defendants and the Receiver reach some understanding on the matter the Plaintiff will most likely have no objection. It may be best for your client to intervene in the action to pursue the relief she is seeking. Otherwise we can serve her with the complaint or you can acknowledge service and file an answer or claim. Lambros. MICHAEL G.
