An extensive article on AZCentral
discusses the most recent court battle over Stargate Worlds
following the presumed cancelation of the Stargate MMORPG. They outline a third investor lawsuit, filed in Maricopa County Superior Court in February, seeking approximately $4 million from former Cheyenne Mountain chairman and CEO Gary Whitingand other former Cheyenne Mountain executives, board members and stock promoters. Here's a bit that outlines the allegations of misconduct this involves:
Cheyenne Mountain's court-appointed receiver, Keith Bierman of Phoenix-based MCA Financial Group, said company documents show millions of dollars collected from investors were not spent on development of Stargate Worlds and may yet remain in the hands of Whiting and other former company executives.
Bierman, a bankruptcy consultant appointed by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to try to save the failed Stargate Worlds project, is in the process of liquidating the company's remaining assets. He is seeking the court's permission to investigate the whereabouts of the missing funds in hopes of returning that money to investors.
"There were a significant number of investments that did not appear to come to the company," he said.
Whiting could not be reached for comment on this story. Court documents show he is not currently represented by an attorney.

Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there. And to all of you who have let this go until now, here's hoping there are still some flowers in the supermarket (hurry!).
We survived our hectic day yesterday, as we had a pretty early wedding to attend, which was quite lovely. We also managed to make it through the reception, even though we had a couple of hours to kill before that began, which we occupied by doing a little pre-drinking. Lots of dancing ensued which has earned me a lot of brownie points with MrsBlue, and that's not too bad at all either.
