DETROIT -- Original investors in Atwater Entertainment Associates LLC, a local group with a stake in MotorCity Casino, are poised to net sizable profits this week as Marian Ilitch positions herself to become sole owner of the gaming operation.
Where there other Atwater "investors" benefiting from Marian Ilitch's buyout in 2005 who were in a position to help her family's businesses as a result?
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.

MGM Mirage to Take $1.2 Billion Writedown on Mandalay
NEW YORK (Reuters) - MGM Mirage
In the last year or so, the Las Vegas gambling boom has ended and the real estate market deteriorated sharply, sending the value of casino properties plunging and putting a financial squeeze on operators.
In a regulatory filing late on Friday, MGM Mirage said it will recognize a non-cash impairment charge of about $1.2 billion in its fourth-quarter results, representing substantially all of the goodwill it recognized when it closed the deal.
The purchase of Mandalay, which operates the Mandalay Bay, Luxor and Excalibur resorts in Las Vegas, propelled MGM Mirage into the position of the world's No. 2 casino company, behind Harrah's Entertainment.

The conspiracy claims appear to be directly related to an 8.01.04 domestic violence incident in which Troy Police were called to the Caitlin Court home of Ron Ilitch. When police arrived on the scene that day they were unable to locate Ilitch. Newspaper accounts report he was later arrested and charged with two counts of assault and battery.
As reported on 8.12.04 in the Detroit Free Press that call to police was the culmination of a series of domestic violence incidents:
"According to the Oakland County Prosecutor's Office, Ilitch and Wood argued at Ilitch's Troy home on Caitlin Court on June 24. He allegedly hit her, causing bruising and a swollen eye and hand. She initially did not report the incident, said Charles Claus, warrants division chief with the prosecutor's office.
"Later, they went on vacation to Colorado, Claus said. On the way, they stopped at Valley Community Hospital in Peru, Ill., where Wood was treated for her injuries, Claus said.
"On July 10, Wood reported she was assaulted again, Aurora Police Detective Larry Martinez said.
"On Aug. 1, after the couple returned, Wood told police she was assaulted a third time.
"She said Ilitch hit her in both arms. She ran from the house to a neighbor's home, called Troy police and went to a local hospital for treatment, Claus said."
This new lawsuit brought by Wood against Little Caesars, Mike Ilitch, and others alleges that Wood had been working with the Ilitches and Ilitch affiliates and agents on a new concept for their pizza businesses and that agreements had been executed to compensate Wood for her efforts.
However, as the complaint expresses, after the series of domestic violence incidents and Wood’s call to Troy police, the Ilitches and their agents took part in a conspiracy to cover up crime scene evidence and also destroy any evidence of their existing contractual relationship.
Following the 8.01.04 beating incident, Wood apparently was not personally allowed to return to Ron Ilitch’s home to retrieve her personal belongings. She says her copies of the executed agreements were among her things in the Ilitch home.
The complaint suggests that in the days immediately following the third beating, even authorities were blocked entry to the home. Wood believes Ilitch family members and their agents were working to clean up and destroy crime scene evidence in order to conceal the full extent of the crimes committed by Ron Ilitch; and that the Ilitches and their agents rifled through her personal belongings to locate and destroy the contracts and other things.
Wood believes the Ilitch crew intended to sever the contractual relationships they had previously executed with her to the point of deniability. Wood says in doing so, the Ilitches and their agents took her rightful property and robbed her of evidence to pursue legal remedies.
Although some previous news accounts wrongly suggest Ron Ilitch is not affiliated with any of the Ilitch family enterprises; in fact, since 1999 Ronald Ilitch has been a Director and Vice President of the Ilitch family's Seven I's Inc. (See: Seven I's Coporate Records) And according to Wikipedia, Ronald Ilitch was included as a "minority owner" on the Stanley Cup's Champions Roster in 2002 & 2008.
According to an Appearance document filed in this latest case, attorneys Irwin Alterman (Kemp Klein Law Firm) and Harold S. Fried (Fried Saperstein Abbatt PC) are representing the defendants.
Harold Fried represented Ron Ilitch in the 2004 assault & battery case and other actions. Following Ron Ilitch's 2004 arrest & arraignment, Fried saw to it that the matter was conducted outside of a public forum.
Fried has repeatedly represented members of the Ilitch family and several of Ilitch’s Detroit Red Wings players in potentially high profile or criminal cases during the last two decades.

Judge Huck denies Defendant Malik's Motion to Stay Discovery, orders exchange of documents yet again
Malik has yet to deny charges filed by Receiver Michael I. Goldberg on 6.09.08 in what allegedly amounts to a $2.1 million fraudulent transfer case related to SEC v. John P. Utsick, Worldwide Entertainment, et al. Rather, Malik's attorneys have been relentless in their efforts to get the case postponed or dismissed on procedural or administrative grounds.
At a hearing on 12.10.08, Judge Huck ordered the parties to exchange documents "right away." When Malik's attorneys were contacted to initiate the exchange process, his attorney Abe Singer (Pepper Hamilton LP) appeared to respond with disdain for Judge Huck and informed Plaintiff's Counsel that Malik would instead file a Motion to Dismiss.
In ordering the parties, yet again, to exchange documents, Judge Huck set a deadline of 1.15.09.

- Richard Alcalde (Potomac Partners D.C.) - $5,000
- MJM Manistee (Michael J. Malik, Sr.) - $10,000
Ilitch and her husband Mike Ilitch co-founded Little Caesars Pizza and own the Detroit Red Wings hockey team. Mike Ilitch also owns the Detroit Tigers baseball team.
Richard Acalde is a controversial lobbyist who represents various Malik/Ilitch affiliates and partners. Alcalde has also been at the center of several D.C. lobbying/political corruption scandals including the ongoing investigation into a $10 million earmark that was advanced by Alaska's Congressman Don Young. The funds were designated to improvement of a Florida Interchange (Coconut Rd.) that would have benefited a Michigan developer Daniel Aronoff (Landon Companies) who owns property in Florida near or adjacent to Coconut Rd. Aronoff is one of Alcalde's most loyal clients. They flew Young to Florida and held a fundraiser for him there.
Reporter: Kerzner & Wolman have money troubles, Strather seeks new investors for Cape Cod Casino scheme
Tribe's longtime investor seeks new blood
...For years, Herb Strather and his investors bankrolled the tribe's quest for federal recognition from the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs, upping the ante to $40,000 a month, and later $100,000, according to court documents.
But the process, officially ongoing since the 1970s, still took a lot longer than anticipated. In December 2006, about 10 months after the tribe received a preliminary thumbs up on its federal recognition application, the man from Detroit officially handed over the vast majority of his stake in a proposed casino to a company called Trading Cove, headed up by South African casino developers Sol Kerzner and Len Wolman.
Five years ago, Strather said, he may have been able to maintain about 20 percent of the project. Today, he controls a little more than 5 percent.
The financial problems of Kerzner and Wolman, who are the "operators and the funders" of the project, have been well publicized. The credit rating for their Rhode Island "racino," Twin River, has been downgraded by at least two companies, and Moody's Investor Service cited a high probability the company will seek bankruptcy protection.
Strather's not in trouble as far as the Mashpee project is concerned — he doesn't have those kind of debt obligations for the casino, he said.
It's his other various projects that are suffering from the current economic recession. "We have other businesses, real estate businesses, and yes that business is tough," he said.
But many of his original investors — including O.J. Simpson's attorney Johnnie Cochran and his kindergarten teacher — have died since his business with the tribe began, and new blood — and money — are welcome, he said.
"Many of these people who came in are gone. I've had at least a dozen investors die," he said. "They helped make a dream come true, and their legacy will live on, although they are not alive now to reap the benefits of it."
Strather is likely looking for investors who can not only help financially, but have political influence at the local level, experts say... (See Original Story)

The UCC Lien is described as “Security Interest and Proceeds.”
A limited liability company known as KSW MASS, L.L.C. was organized in Delaware on 11.29.06.
Is it possible that "KSW" stands for Kerzner, Slavik, and Wolman? Those parties are reportedly now in control of any future Mashpee Wampanoag casino resort on Cape Cod, MASS. (EnterpriseNews.com: Meet the Money Men).
Those parties were also part of the Trading Cove Partners that financed and developed the Mohegan Sun in Connecticut.
Sol Kerzner is Chairman and CEO of Kerzner International
Slavik Suites, Inc. was formed by Michigan-based brothers Richard Slavik (deceased 3.11.08) and Stephan Slavik (Slavik Builders, Inc.).
LMW Investments, Inc. is a Connecticut-based enterprise formed by brothers Len Wolman and Mark Wolman. The Wolmans are officers and directors of Slavik Suites.
Slavik and LMW are the members of Waterford Group LLC. Len Wolman is Chairman of Waterford. Waterford partnered with Kerzner to form Trading Cove Partners.
Waterford Gaming LLC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Waterford Group LLC. A 10-K filed with the SEC by Waterford Gaming LLC provides more details into the relationship complexities of the businesses owned by the Wolmans and the Slavik family.
AtMashpee LLC, the "debtor" subject to the KSW MASS UCC Lien was organized by Detroit casino syndicator and real estate developer Herbert Strather.
Kerzner and Wolman (and by some accounts Slavik) took control of the Mashpee Wampanoag casino project from Strather once the tribe received Federal Recognition. Strather is reported to have bankrolled that tribe's efforts up to that point to the tune of $15 million. If what's been represented were true, wouldn't Kerzner, Slavik, Wolman by buying-out AtMashpee rather than placing a lien against the enterprise? Or did those parties also finance AtMashpee? Was Strather fronting for KSW all along?
And further do AtMashpee's investors know about the KSW MASS/Waterford Group UCC lien? In the wake of the wide-reaching Bernard Madoff ponzi scheme should AtMashpee "investors" be looking more closely at their circumstances?
- Circus Detroit partners under scrutiny
DETROIT -- As state investigators probe the suitability of those seeking to run casinos here, a newspaper says some investors in the Atwater/Circus Circus group have troubled histories...
The Detroit News reported Sunday on its review of public records on the local investors.
It said companies owned by local investor group leaders Herb Strather and Nellie Varner of Detroit have paid taxes late, and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development cited a real estate company they own for several violations.
A bad real estate deal in 1986 led to the foreclosure of nearly 40 properties. This month, HUD issued five violations against a Detroit apartment building they own; courts have awarded their tenants about $750,000 in negligence claims...
Investor Michael Malik of Grosse Pointe was arrested in 1997 and accused of hitting his girlfriend's 12-year-old son, the newspaper said. The child is now Malik's stepson, but the boy's biological father is seeking custody. The charge was dropped after Malik served one year of probation and met conditions set by the judge...
Strather, Varner, Malik and Thomas Celani, along with minor investors James Blain and J. Ronald Slavik, are accused in lawsuits of fraudulently cutting two other developers out of the Atwater Group, the News said. They deny the allegations, which are pending in courts in Wayne and Oakland counties.
Also, Varner's adopted daughter, Janniss Scott Varner, is accused of attempted murder in an alleged shooting in Nellie Varner's garage... (See: Original Article)

Or was the attorney simply referring to his own client Michael Malik when he made those comments in an email reply to opposing Counsel?
In Goldberg v. Michael J. Malik, Sr., the $2.1 million fraudulent transfer mattter (Case No. 0:2008cv60870) underway in Florida Federal Court, Plaintiff's attorney filed a "Notice Compliance to Advise Defendants' Counsel to Exchange Documents" on 12.26.08.
The Notice includes as exhibit an e-mail exchange between Plaintiff's Attorney Jeff Sonn (Sonn & Erez) and Defendant's Counselors Abe Singer (Pepper Hamilton, LLP) and Gary Stiphany (Garbett, Stiphany, Allen & Roza, P.A.); presumably to demonstrate to the Court that Sonn had engaged in good-faith communication with Malik's Counsel as directed by the Court.
Sonn explains in his original email (12.26.08, 2:19 PM) that he's contacting Defendant's attorneys because Judge Huck had requested the parties exchange documents right away. Sonn reviews circumstancs surrounding a status conference the Judge held on 12.19.08. And Sonn indicates the Judge has scheduled a 1.05.09 status conference at which Sonn believes Judge Huck intends to pick a trial date and set pretrial deadlines.
Here's the verbatim email response from Defendant's Counsel Abe Singer:
- "This guy is a piece of work. I do not believe a word he says. Please call me on Monday to discuss this and motions to dosmiss [sic]."
Casino syndicator Michael J. Malik, Sr. is facing $2.1 million fraudulent transfer charges in Florida Federal Court (Golderg v. Malik). That complaint is related to an investigation and charges by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) against entertainment promoters Worldwide Entertainment, Entertainment Group Fund, Inc., American Enterprises, Inc., Entertainment Funds, Inc., Jack Utsick Presents, et al.
Michael I. Goldberg (Akerman Senterfitt) is the appointed Receiver in the matter. Goldberg is represented by Jeffrey R. Sonn (Sonn & Erez).
Circumstances surrounding the Royal Oak Music Theatre in Michigan have been of interest to Receiver Goldberg.
Curiously in 1993, Michigan National Bank, a creditor, originally placed a UCC lien (Filing No. C731010) against the six related debtors listed below; and has twice since renewed that filing: 1998 (Filing No. D339142) and 2003 (Filing No. 2003042961-4).
Those six debtors facing lien by Michigan National Bank include:
- Fourth Street Asylum
- Paragon Investment Company
- Paragon Investment Company
- Paragon Investment Company dba Paragon Theatres dba Royal Oak Music Theatre dba Fourth Street Asylum
- Paragon Theatres
- Royal Oak Music Theatre
Curiously, the ongoing UCC lien indicates five of the six debtors are located at:
2211 Woodward Ave.
Detroit, MI 48201
That’s the address of Detroit's Fox Theater building which is the headquarters of Ilitch Holdings, Inc. and its affiliates as well as the address of record for numerous other Malik affiliates. (See: Compiled List of Affiliates)
Until now, there have been few details directly linking Ilitch or Malik affiliates to the Royal Oak Theatre circumstances or circumstances that would explain how it is that Malik is tied into the SEC complaint against Worldwide Entertainment, Utsick Presents et al.
So why does the Michigan National Bank filing identify those five entities at that Woodward Ave. address? After all, that's not the address of record those entities have on file with Michigan's Department of Labor & Economic Growth.
Filings to date in Goldberg v. Malik have yet to disclose the true nature of Malik’s involvement/relationship with Worldwide Entertainment, Jack Utsick Presents, etc. Currently counsel for Malik is arguing the case on procedural and adminisrative grounds. Malik has yet to deny the charges.
Could the UCC lien provide a hint of what that relationship might be?
It's noted that Ilitch affiliates, namely Olympia Entertainment, own or manage many of the concert halls, theaters and sporting venues in the greater Detroit area (Comerica Park, Joe Louis Arena, Fox Theater, Cobo Arena, Detroit’s historic Masonic Temple Theatre, etc.). The Royal Oak Music Theatre has never publicly been acknowledged in the Ilitch portfolio.
While Malik is reportedly not an employee of Ilitch Holdings, Inc. or any of its subsidiaries, his office is among the executive suite of offices at Ilitch Holdings, Inc. and many ways he acts in a capacity as senior employee or affiliate -- often in the capacity of "bad cop" or "tough guy." And despites such denials by Malik and Ilitch spokespersons, according to OpenSecrets.org, Malik has made contributions totaling $24,100 to 16 different political committees which recorded his employer as Ilitch Holdings.
Defendant Malik is represented in Detroit by Abraham Singer and James D. VandeWyngearde (Pepper Hamilton, LLP) and in Miami by Gary T. Stiphany (Garbett, Stiphany, Allen & Roza, P.A.).
Further, a review of the short-list reveals a rather "Dis-Honorable Roll" of donors.
Ironically, book-ending this list are Detroiters Herbert J. Strather and Michael J. Malk, Sr.; one time partners, who respectively made the first and last contributions Midnight Sun PAC has ever received from Michigan donors. And sandwiched in the middle is Daniel J. Aronoff.
Malik and Strather were behind the legalization of commercial gambling in Detroit and were considered founders of Detroit's MotorCity Casino. However, the pair were among a handful of "investors" who were disqualified from receiving gaming licenses by the Michigan Gambling Control Board (MGCB) and as such had to dump their interests in the casino before it could open its doors. Among various considerations, Malik had recently been arrested for beating the 12-year-old son of a girlfriend and reportedly had IRS issues; and Strather, among other things, had previously been convicted of bribery.
For nearly a decade, Mike Malik has sought Rep. Young's help advancing unorthodox plans the casino syndicator is bankrolling for an Indian Casino in Port Huron, Michigan; and other earmark matters involving the Bay Mills Indian Community. (Anchorage Daily News: Alaska's Young a leader in Michigan Indian casino fight).
In 2005-06, Malik and his partners, members of Detroit's Ilitch family, were among the top five donors to Young's political committee and they gave Young the highest grossing day of fundraising he had in that entire two year campaign cycle . Only those affiliated with Veco (Bill Allen, Rick Smith), JHT Holdings (Dennis Troha) and Carnival Corp. contributed more than Malik/Ilitch Family. Vecco execs have plead guilty to political corruption charges and Troha has already been indicted on similar charges he "reimbursed" family members who contributed to various candidates.
Mike Malik is developing a pattern of political campaign finance violations. His affiliate Barwest LLC (another of his partnerships with Detroit's Marian Ilitch) was found to have violated California's political reform laws on two counts for failing to disclose a $26,600 contribution it made to former Rep. Richard Pombo's County GOP Victory Committee. Malik used Barwest to front private aircraft travel for Rep. Young.
Malik is the subject of an ongoing investigation by California's Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) because he denied making another $26,000+ in contributions to the committees of various California lawmakers in 2006 -- at the same time the previous FPPC investigation was concluding.
Strather & Dalgleish
Similarly, Herb Strather has bankrolled efforts to get approvals needed to build a large casino resort on Cape Cod in partnership with the Mashpee Wampanoag Indian Tribe. Young sat as Chair, Vice Chair and then ranking member of the House Resources Committee which has oversight for Indian matters.
Strather put $4 million into a hidden fund that enabled his partner, former tribal chairman Glenn Marshall, to carry out a scheme of illegal campaign finance activity including reimbursements to other so-called "donors." Marshall and other such "donors" from the tribe contributed to Midnight Sun PAC on the same date Strather and Mary Ann Dalgleish, a Strather & Associates Vice President, contributed to the PAC. We will assume Strather knew better than to reimburse Dalgleish for her contribution.
Dalgleish was apparently one of 100+ "investors" Strather recruited to syndicate Atwater Entertainment Associates LLC in the mid-1990s although Dalgleish had a personal history of financial hardship. AEA is the entity Strather syndicated to bankroll the legalization of gaming in Detroit and start MotorCity Casino. Dalgleish may also have been an investor in AtMashpee LLC, the syndication Strather organized to bankroll the Mashpee Wampanoag casino plans.
Appearing predictably on the PAC list three times -- and of all things, at the center of the list -- is Daniel Aronoff, perhaps so far the most publicly notorious donor on this list. (Note that the entry for Aronoff's most recent contribution has his last name misspelled as Aaronoff -- error or intention?).
Aronoff owns land in Florida and is the Michigan-based real estate developer at the center of the scandal and investigation into a $10 million earmark advanced by Rep. Young that was designated for improvements to the Coconut Road interchange off Florida's I-75. The project would have significant value to Aronoff who was a prodigious fundraiser for Young.
Aronoff, Malik and Strather have similar patterns of interaction with Young and have been significant bundlers/fundraisers for Young's various political committees, GOP causes and closest allies (former Reps Richard Pombo, John Doolittle, etc.). They've flown Young around in private aircraft, organized fundraisers, hired the some of the same notorious lobbyists and in exchange, sought help from Rep. Young above and beyond the norm.
The fifth Michigan donor on the list is Dennis Wend, who is referred to as a government employee albeit the only government employee from Michigan to contribute to Midnight Sun PAC -- and contribute $3,000.
Wend is executive director of technology transfer at the United States Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center, located at the U.S. Army Tank-Automotive and Armaments Command in Warren. He contributed to Midnight Sun PAC only after he was given the spotlight in 2004 & 2005 at Alaska's Clean Energy Symposium I & II.
