LAS VEGAS (AP) - A tourist left paralyzed after he was beaten by strip club employees is accusing the club's former owner of hiding assets to avoid honoring an agreement to pay the man $10 million.
A federal court judge has granted Kirk Henry's request to force Rick Rizzolo to produce financial documents. Henry claims Rizzolo divorced his wife and transferred all assets to her in order to dodge paying Henry.
Rizzolo's attorneys denies the claim.
Rizzolo was the owner of the Crazy Horse Too strip club when Henry was beaten by employees after an argument over an $80 bar tab. Henry was left a quadriplegic.
