- IRS backs off
Kimtran and Lisa Rizzolo
appeal all rulings,
Dominic Rizzolo's hammer
& Rick Rizzolo moves
into new luxury digs.

LAS VEGAS - How can relatives of a convicted
tax cheat and racketeer still be in possession of his tens of millions
of dollars in ill gotten gains while the IRS looks the other way? And how
can someone who almost beat a man to death with a hammer get away with
Rizzolo and his family continue to make the U.S. justice system and
Internal Revenue Service look like total fools.
Since June 1, 2006, the Rizzolos have owed
the IRS over $1.7 million, and the agency has failed to take any action.
In the meantime, on May 21, 2012, the Rizzolo's
delinquent son Dominic tried to beat
Ralph Altro to death with a hammer. Altro mysteriously vanished before
the case could go to court, according to a source in the Valusia County,
Florida Sheriff's Department who told INSIDE VEGAS that the victim left
Florida to visit family and they cannot find him. He further stated that
he expects this case to be closed out in the near future. If so, this will
be the second time Dominic tried to kill someone, and was let
Let's start with the IRS. The following
three documents were presented as evidence in United States Federal Court
leading to former Crazy Horse Too owner Rick Rizzolo receiving an additional
nine months of incarceration and a two year extension of his parole. All
three documents require him to pay "all past and present taxes, interest
and penalties owed."
Rick is out of prison for the second time
-- back to living in luxury -- and not one cent has been collected by the
In complete defiance of his obligation
to pay restitution and back taxes, Rick just moved into this 3,000 square
foot luxury villa on the Anthem Golf Course in Henderson overlooking Las
Vegas, while he still possesses a gate pass to his ex-wife's
estate across the valley on the more posh Canyon Gate Golf Course in
Weeks before Rick's release from prison,
his stepmother Kimtran Rizzolo defied the following court order forcing
her to pay $1,052,996.03 in restitution to beating
victim Kirk Henry from fraudulently transferred funds her late husband
Bart Rizzolo received from the sale of the Philadelphia Crazy Horse Too.

IT IS FURTHER
ORDERED that Judgment is hereby entered in favor of Plaintiffs Kirk Henry
and Amy Henry and against Defendants Rick Rizzolo and Kimtran Rizzolo.
The transfers to Bart and Kimtran Rizzolo in the total amount of $1,052,996.03
were fraudulent pursuant to Nevada Revised Statutes § 112.180(1)(a)
and therefore should be avoided. Defendants Rick Rizzolo and Kimtran Rizzolo
shall make the necessary arrangements to transfer funds in the amount of
$1,052,996.03 to Plaintiffs Kirk Henry and Amy Henry within thirty (30)
days. Any such funds transferred to Plaintiffs Kirk Henry and Amy Henry
shall be credited toward the Judgment entered against Rick Rizzolo and
The Power Company in Kirk and Amy Henry v. The Power Company, Inc., et
al., Case No.A440740 in Nevada state court.
Following Kimtran's refusal to pay, on
May 22, 2012, Senior United States Federal Judge Pro issued a WRIT
OF EXECUTION ordering the U.S. Marshals Service to immediately seize
the assets of Kimtran including her annuities.
The insurance companies holding Kimtran's
annuities responded by filing federal
lawsuits to stop the garnishments. In their Cause of Action, they demand
that Judge Pro; "Cite the U.S. Civil Statute under which you are filing,"
meaning that the court must now prove to the annuity holders that the funds
Kimtran deposited were obtained through fraudulent means, before the insurance
companies will release the funds to satisfy Kimtran and Rick's
$1,052,996.03 obligation to Henry.
This will further stall Henry's ability
to collect over $10 million the court ordered he be paid in 2006, for suffering
a broken neck at the hands of a Crazy Horse Too manager back in October
Then, to further gum up the works, Lisa
Rizzolo who controls Rick's off shore accounts, filed an appeal
with the Ninth Circuit Court, followed by another appeal
filed by Kimtran. Both appeals are expected to stall Henry and the IRS
(if the IRS is still interested) from collecting what they're owed for
at least another six months.
And while this goes on, any and all rulings
and orders of the court go unheeded until the Ninth Circuit Court appeals
are adjudicated, no matter how lame they may be.
HENRY v. RIZZOLO is the perfect example
of "Justice delayed, is justice denied."
My question to the U.S. Federal Court and
IRS is this: Have the results of this highly publicized, protracted case
promoted "Public respect for the law generally?"
I seriously doubt it.
