Maricopa Courts Appoint Edward Burr as CME Receiver
We've reported the growing problems of the Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment (CME) saga over the last few weeks and the reported layoffs from the company's bankruptcy claim, complete with a power struggle for control. But it seems at least some relief for CME may be on the horizon with the appointment of Edward Burr of Sierra Consulting Group as the company's Receiver by the Maricopa County Superior Court. Mr. Burr will act as receiver and is now effectively in control of the company assets, affairs, management, and will act as its representative in its chapter 11 proceedings. This appointment ends the battle for control over the company and puts Burr in charge of CME and its subsidiary Cheyenne Mountain Games, Inc.
Time will tell how this saga will play out and if there is a future for CME and Stargate Worlds or if the company will travel the road of bankruptcy. Read the full press release below for more details. Click here to read the court document.
MESA, Ariz. -March 19, 2010 -The Maricopa County Superior Court has ordered that Edward "Ted" Burr of Sierra Consulting Group ("Sierra") be appointed as receiver to take over the assets, affairs, management, operation and control of Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment, Inc. ("CME") and its subsidiary Cheyenne Mountain Games, Inc. ("CMG"). The term "Receiver" shall include assistants to Mr. Burr employed at Sierra. Dale Belt, a Managing Director at Sierra, has begun the process of complying with the court order. Additionally, on Thursday afternoon of March 18th, Judge Sarah Curley of the United States Bankruptcy Court - District of Arizona ruled that the Receiver shall be recognized as the controlling managerial representative for CME in its Chapter 11 proceeding filed on February 12th.
The above actions have effectively ended the six week battle over control of the companies that began on February 3rd with the filing of a complaint in Superior Court by shareholder plaintiffs requesting appointment of a Receiver. As Receiver, Mr. Burr and Mr. Belt (and associates as necessary) will have full control over all aspects of CME and CMG. A copy of the order appointing receiver is attached. Communications from any parties other than the Receiver (written, email, phone or otherwise) should be ignored until further notice by the Receiver.
It is uncertain at this time what the effect of these actions and the pending bankruptcy proceeding will have on the Company's operations and financial condition. The Receiver will be attempting to bring stability to the Company as it seeks solutions to its financial problems.
