BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - Attorneys for creditors from the 2008 bankruptcy of the exclusive Yellowstone Club want a federal judge to incarcerate the resort's founder for failing to heed court orders.
The attorneys say developer Tim Blixseth has engaged in a pattern of deceit through years of litigation in which he's sought to limit his liability in the club's financial collapse.
That includes his alleged defiance of a Feb. 3 court order to pay at least $13.8 million for selling a Mexico resort that was part of the bankruptcy proceedings.
Blixseth, a resident of Washington state, said Wednesday he hoped to resolve the matter but did not offer specifics.
The Yellowstone Club has been under new ownership since Blixseth left the private ski and golf resort near Big Sky as it spiraled into bankruptcy.
