According to the South Florida Business Journal, Goldberg filed the lawsuit as a part of his duties as receiver.
Hilton had been hired by one of Worldwide's subsidiaries, Entertainment Group Fund, at the sum of $1 million to promote the film that she also starred in. However Goldberg now contends that she didn't hold up her end of the bargain and is seeking in excess of $75,000 in compensation from Hilton.
In the lawsuit, filed in U.S. District court in Miami, Goldberg asserts that "Hilton failed to attend any talk shows or telephonic or in-person interviews."
Goldberg has been serving as the receiver for Jack Utsick's Worldwide Entertainment for two years after the SEC sued Utsick for fraud, finding that his entire company was in essence a ponzi scheme.
Hilton's attorney was unavailable for comment.
NOTE: Receiver Goldberg has also gone after others whom he alleges unduly were awarded "profit payments" by various of the Receiver Entities. Among those, is Michael J. Malik, Sr. of Detroit whom Goldberg alleges received such fraudlent transfers of more than $2.1 million. Malik and his affiliates are partners with Marian Ilitch whose family owns Detroit's Fox Theatre; manages Detroit's Cobo Arena, Masonic Lodge Theatre, Comerica Park and Joe Louis Arena; and owns the Detroit Tigers, Detroit Red Wings, MotorCity Casino, Olympia Entertainment and Little Caesar Enterprises. Malik shares offices with other Ilitch Holdings Inc. executives in the Fox Theatre Building.
