Elissa Wall’s personal injury lawsuit has been playing out in 3rd District Court in Salt Lake City for a decade. In May, after Jeffs failed to respond to the lawsuit, a judge allowed for her to collect default damages, which were expected to be millions of dollars. Judge Keith Kelly waited until Monday to hold the hearing on damages to give Jeffs and his attorneys another chance to respond if they wanted to.

At Monday’s hearing, the table where Jeffs’ attorneys would have sat remained empty as no one from his side attended.

“He is ignoring the legal process,” Wall’s attorney, Alan Mortensen, said following Monday’s hearing.
She told the judge that through her personal contacts, she learned that child marriages briefly stopped after authorities raided the church’s YFZ Ranch in Texas in 2008, ultimately leading to Jeff’s conviction and life prison sentence for sexually assaulting two underage followers he took as brides.

But many women and children were sent deep “underground,” to exclusive compounds where a “whole other layer of very perverted teachings are being given.”

Based on Jeffs’ writings seized in Texas, underage marriages are still happening and there’s “nothing to suggest they will ever stop,” according to Wall.

Jeffs, she said, believes the younger the girl, the more pure she is.

Washington County Attorney Brock Belnap said he was not sure if criminal charges will be filed in the case.

“It all depends upon what she wants to do. She’s an adult and we have to respect her choices. Right now we don’t know what she will say or do that could possibly lead to charges,” Belnap said, adding that Utah officials were not sure how many of Jeffs’ wives were in Utah or the area.

Jeffs, 55, has at least 78 plural wives, according to court documents. In August, he was convicted in Texas of sexually assaulting two of those wives when they were ages 12 and 15. According to evidence prosecutors presented at trial, Jeffs “trained” his wives to be comfortable naked and participate in group sex. He frequently moved them to “lands of refuge” like the group’s Yearning for Zion Ranch in Texas or to “houses of hiding” scattered throughout the West.

Very few, if any, of the women he has taken as wives are known to have left the community.

William K. “Billy” Busch, 51, said he is close to opening William K. Busch Brewing Co., a brewery that will initially focus on American-style pale lagers, similar to Budweiser and Bud Light.

The goal is to have two lagers available in the St. Louis market by November, with broader, regional distribution after that.
Although he never worked at his family’s A-B brewery, Busch did perform maintenance tasks on Grant’s Farm as a young man. Later, he and two of his brothers, Adolphus Busch IV and Andy Busch, were part owners of Silver Eagle, a large, Texas-based A-B distributor. Each brother sold his stake in the company for an undisclosed amount in 1991.

Billy Busch is not bound by a noncompete agreement with A-B InBev since he wasn’t working for the local brewery when InBev took over.

Busch has mostly remained out of the limelight in recent years, following a high-profile custody battle that reached the Missouri Supreme Court in 1989. He is a competitive polo player who hosts charity matches at the farm he owns in Defiance with his wife, Christi.
Billy, BUD’s founder’s great grandson, is not to be confused with his nephew, Augustus Busch IV, the founder’s great great grandson.

[October 18 2008 Extradition for grandfather of Heath Ledger’s daughter, Matilda ]

 

 

 

LARRY Williams, the grandfather of late actor Heath Ledger’s daughter, Matilda,  has lost his bid to return to the US before an extradition hearing in Australia.

But there was a “big difference” between going there voluntarily and “consenting to surrender”, thus returning as an extradited person.

If he surrendered, he may languish in an Australian jail until US marshals arranged to take him back.

In asking for his bail to be varied so he could travel to the US, Mr Watson said “the Americans are happy for him to come back this way”.

But Ms O’Shane agreed with submissions made on behalf of the Director of Public Prosecutions that she did not have the power to allow an applicant “to travel beyond the reach of this jurisdiction”.

Preliminary arguments relating to the extradition hearing will be heard in the same court on December 4.  The father of actress Michelle Williams is wanted in the US for allegedly evading $1.9 million in taxes between 1999 and 2001.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation raids the West Palm Beach, Florida office of Dr. Salomon Melgen on January 30, 2013. U.S. Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) has indicated that Melgen is a friend and political supporter.

Attorney General Eric Holder has signed off on prosecutors’ request to proceed with criminal corruption charges against Senator Bob Menendez. The government’s case centers on Menendez’s relationship with Salomon Melgen, a Florida ophthalmologist who the senator has called a friend and political supporter. Melgen and his family have been generous donors to the senator and various committees the senator is associated with.

In 2006, According to the New York Times, Kean was defeated for Senator in part because he “built a campaign around his portrayal of Mr. Menendez as a shady, self-dealing, machine-produced Hudson County boss who hangs out with criminals.” He has become one of the Obama administration’s most vocal Democratic opponents on two key foreign policy matters — President Obama’s decision to ease the trade embargo against Cuba and also his effort to engage direct negotiations with Iran over that country’s nuclear program.

Investigators have focused in part on plane trips Menendez took in 2010 to the Dominican Republic as a guest of Melgen. In 2013, after word of the federal investigation became public, Menendez paid back Melgen $58,000 for the 2010 plane trips calling his failure to properly disclose the flights an “oversight.” Menendez has denied any wrongdoing in his ties to Melgen. “As we have said before, we believe all of Senator’s actions have been appropriate and lawful and the facts will ultimately confirm that,” Menendez spokesperson Tricia Enright said in a statement Friday. “Any actions taken by Senator Menendez or his office have been to appropriately address public policy issues and not for any other reason.”
Menendez advocated on Melgen’s behalf with federal Medicare administrators who accused Melgen of overbilling the government’s healthcare program, according to court documents and people briefed on the probe. Melgen was among the top recipients of Medicare reimbursements in recent years, during a time when he was also a major Democratic donor. Melgen’s attorneys have denied any wrongdoing.

Prosecutors also are focusing on whether Menendez broke the law in advocating for Melgen’s business interest in a Dominican Republic government contract for a port screening equipment. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency, at the time, considered donating port screening equipment to the Dominican Republic, which would have hurt the contract of Melgen-controlled company.

The Carlton case: the civil conviction of DSK has been annulled on appeal. Recalling that the damage that a civil party can obtain compensation must result from a proven fault and limited to the object of the prosecution, the highest court of the judiciary considered that the Court of Appeal had disregarded this principle. In June 2015, the four defendants had all been acquitted by the Criminal Court of Lille.

French prosecutors are convinced they have a case against Strauss-Kahn for “aggravated pimping in an organised gang.”

The case, known here as the “Carlton affair”, centres around allegations that business leaders and police officials in Lille operated a vice ring supplying girls for sex parties, some of which are said to have taken place at the city’s Carlton Hotel. Investigators are seeking to discover if prostitutes were paid using corporate funds from a large French construction company, Eiffage.
“If these parties and these trips across the Atlantic were being financed by a major French group for purposes of prostitution obviously that puts a lot of people in deep trouble because it is a misuse of corporate money,” said a legal expert who is not linked to the Strauss-Kahn case.

Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn cancelled plans to speak at an European Parliament debate next week, after MEPs said it would be “indecent” for him to speak at the House.

Madame Bea reveals the events that occurred on March 6, 2009 in the Parisian restaurant L Aventure where, after lunch, Strauss-Kahn and five more men went down to the basement and began the sex party,. “I have in my mind the image of DSK dressed only in a white shirt.
