Yes, you read that right; Shafik Hirji, after being pursued by so many people who he has defrauded over the years, is appearing in Clark County District Court as a plaintiff in a personal injury case, trying to cash in. Current schedule is for him to appear Wednesday, Jan. 23.
Remember, this is the same Shady Shafik Hirji who owes the State of Nevada some $300,000.
• Check it out … from our “Renewal of Judgment” post:
“Validation is a beautiful thing. The above image of a court document, in part, shows the Renewal of Judgment by the state of Nevada regarding Shafik Hirji in the amount of $218,474.93 plus attorney’s fees in the amount of $75,000 and legal interest accruing since October 13, 2010. Ouch.”
“In a lawsuit filed (Case No. A-18-778782-C) Aug. 2, 2018 in Clark County, Nevada, District Court, the Las Vegas Review Journal (LVRJ) detailed that Hirji agreed to a payment plan to resolve a $435,292.33 balance for advertising in the LVRJ. The LVRJ said in the suit that Hirji had agreed to pay the LVRJ $5,928.03 every Tuesday and Friday beginning Feb. 17, 2017 through Nov. 3, 2017 with a final payment of $2,546.45 due on Nov. 7, 2017.
Hirji allegedly didn’t make those payments, as the court filing documents: ‘Defendant SHAFIK HIRJI materially breached the Payment Plan by failing to make complete and timely payment as agreed upon in the Payment Plan.’ ”
“Shafik Brown, son of Shafik Hirji who, in my opinion, allegedly uses his son as a nominee to run several of his businesses, got slapped with a pretty hefty tax bill from the State of Nevada for unpaid taxes in the amount of $112,576 and change.”
Ouch, ouch and ouch, indeed. And that’s only scratching the surface.
I will have ring-side seats at this event and will cover it as much as possible.
