Judge Huck orders Jack Utsick to return to Miami for SEC deposition no later than Jan. 28th

A Miami-based U.S. District Judge, Paul C. Huck, has ordered defendant Jack Utsick (John P. Utsick) to appear in Miami, Florida for a Deposition with attorneys representing the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) no later than 1.28.09. Judge Huck filed the order on 1.15.09.

Utsick has attempted to maintain asylum in Brazil where he claims he now lives. Among other things, Utsick represented that the expense of travel prohibited him from returning to the U.S.

Judge Huck ordered the SEC to pay reasonable travel expenses associated with Utsick's return to Miami. The Judge denied Utsick's attempts to win advances on legal expenses.

The SEC alleges that Utsick, a one-time entertainment mogul, was running what amounted to a $300 million ponzi scheme. This is allegedly how he received new capital to pay previous investors and produce theatrical productions, concerts and festivals around the world.

Judge Huck has also ordered all parties in the primary matter to complete Discovery by 1.28.09. But, then again, Judge Huck has attempted to compel discovery on several previous occassions.

Michael I. Goldberg, an attorney at the Akerman Senterfitt law firm, is the court appointed Receiver in the matter. Goldberg has filed numerous actions against individuals who are alleged to have received fraudlent "profit payments" from Utsick or whom otherwise were indebted to Utsick, Worldwide Entertainment Group or any of several other Utsick partners and affiliates. (See: Receivership's Web Site)

Among those who Goldberg has charged: Paris Hilton; two of Australia's top concert promoters Michael Chugg and Kevin Jacobsen; and Detroit-based casino syndicator Michael J. Malik, Sr., who has strong ties to the Ilitch family (Mike & Marian Ilitch) owners of Olympia Entertainment, Detroit Tigers (MLB), Detroit Red Wings (NHL), Detroit's Fox Theater and MotorCity Casino.

The Ilitch Family controls a significant number of Detroit's top theatrical, sports and concert venues including Cobo Arena, Fox Theatre, The City Theatre, Joe Louis Arena, Comerica Park, MotorCity's Sound Board Theatre and the Masonic Temple Theatre.

JACK UTSICK is a retired TWA pilot and has airline passes on American which flies to Brazil.

We are aware that Utsick likely flew as a pilot for some period of time from approximately 1968 - 1988. We find reports that Utsick "resigned" from TWA in 1988. The specific dates of his tenure at TWA -- or as a licensed commercial pilot -- are not clear to TVT.

As different employers in the airline industry offer various benefits to former employees, it's not clear to TVT what if any continuing benefits Utsick would be eligible to receive from TWA or any other commercial flyer -- particularly if he "resigned."

It's not clear if Utsick "retired" or "resigned" from TWA or if that makes a difference in eligibility to receive ongoing benefits.

Don't think that Utsick was old enough to retire in 1988. He must have resigned. In which case he does not have any pass privileges or any other benefits.

He did not retire. He was asked to retire because
They diagnosed him with BiPolar.
