Judge denies move to stop Desai testimony in bankruptcy case
Chief U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Mike Nakagawa on Tuesday denied a bid by Dr. Dipak Desai to stop his sworn examination before creditors from moving forward.
Following a brief hearing, Nakagawa ruled from the bench that the examination could resume as scheduled on June 12, but he would issue a written order on whether it could proceed beyond that date.
“Dr. Desai has frankly been faking it,” said James Hill, a lawyer for William Leonard Jr., the trustee in Desai’s bankruptcy case. He further said, “Dr. Desai is a malingerer.”
