Developer Presses for Damages, Sanctions in Las Vegas Bankruptcy Case

Vegas, Inc.
After winning an involuntary bankruptcy case brought against developer Tim Blixseth, Blixseth's attorneys, who included Brett Axelrod, filed motions to recover $814,000 from the Montana Department of Revenue in legal fees and costs fighting the involuntary position.

Blixseth's attorneys are also seeking punitive damages against the Montana Department of Revenue. Blixseth says he will donate any punitive damages to an organization assisting people in need of legal help in Nevada.

"The Montana Department of Revenue tried to use forced bankruptcy to gain a litigation advantage over me. It was a crude bullying attempt, and nothing more," Blixseth said. "Now, hopefully something good will come out of their conduct and we will be able to donate some much-needed funds to legal aid organizations in Nevada."
