LAS VEGAS - There was a Settlement Conference held on Friday, January 29, 2013, before U.S. Magistrate Judge George Foley, Jr. between Rick and Lisa Rizzolo and their attorneys, and Kirk and Amy Henry and their attorneys. During the ten hour deliberation, the court heard presentations from counsel and from each of the parties. (Rick’s stepmother Kimtran Rizzolo did not participate.) A PARTIAL SETTLEMENT was reached, the terms of which are confidential.

On October 5, 2012, attorneys for Lisa Rizzolo filed an amazing 15 page Opposition to the then-anticipated Injunction prohibiting her from wasting or squandering the assets from her Cook Islands trust accounts, money that was court ordered to be paid to beating victim Kirk Henry and the IRS, but was fraudulently transferred off shore before it could be seized.

Five days after the Opposition was filed, Senior U.S. Judge Philip Pro issued an ORDER stating: “...the Court concludes Plaintiffs have established that they are likely to succeed on the merits, they are likely to suffer irreparable harm in the absence of preliminary injunctive relief, the balance of equities tips in their favor,” and soon future withdrawals from Lisa her ex-husband’s off shore stash were allowed only with the Court’s approval.

This action reduced Lisa’s attorneys to having to beg the Court each month for her minimal living expenses along with their exorbitant legal fees.
