Bankruptcy judge rules on scoreboard. A bankruptcy judge has ordered Cal Poly State to keep a convicted felon’s name up on the scoreboard. Al Moriarty ran a financial services firm and had been a big booster of the school’s football program and paid for an advertisement on the scoreboard. The problem? He was then convicted of running a Ponzi scheme and is serving a five year prison term. The school wanted to remove the ad from the scoreboard, but a bankruptcy judge ruled the ad must remain while the trustee tries to get the $625,000 that was paid for the ad back from the school, the trustee’s position is that money belongs to the creditors. This situation highlights the complicated process of bankruptcy. If you are considering filing bankruptcy, contact Broward county bankruptcy lawyer Howard Butler.
