New York, New York (PRWEB) October 11, 2012
After a long lucrative career writing financial self-help books and giving seminars, Rich Dad Poor Dad author and former Yahoo News Finance columnist Robert Kiyosaki, filed for corporate bankruptcy on August 20, 2012, in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Wyoming. (Case 12-20834)
The bankruptcy followed a July 17, 2012 order by Judge Shira A. Scheindlin of the U.S. District Court Southern District of NY (09CIVIL4432 SAS), for Rich Global, LLC to pay $24 million to Bill Zanker and the Learning Annex. Judge Scheindlin denied Kiyosaki’s motion for a new trial.
Bill Zanker, the founder of the Learning Annex, sued Kiyosaki after the financial guru reneged on an agreement to pay.
"I met Kiyosaki when he was an unknown author, speaking in front of 30 people in Holiday Inns. I promoted him all the way to Madison Square Garden where he spoke in front of thousands. We had an agreement. When it was time to pay, he reneged. I trusted him and got thousands of people to trust his financial advice. Now, Kiyosaki claims, the money is all gone. He declared corporate bankruptcy when a NY jury awarded me even more money than I asked for....24 million!" Zanker says.
