NOTICE OF PROCEEDINGS TO APPROVE SETTLEMENT WITH ARIEL QUIROS AND BAR ORDER
PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that Michael I. Goldberg, as the Court-appointed receiver (the “Receiver”) of the entities (the “Receivership Entities”) in the above-captioned civil enforcement action (the “SEC Action”), has entered into an agreement with Ariel Quiros (the “Ariel Quiros Settlement Agreement”) to settle all claims that were and could have been asserted against Ariel Quiros by the Receiver, the Receivership Entities, or any person or entity claiming by or through such entities or relating in any way to the claims asserted in the SEC Action.
PLEASE TAKE FURTHER NOTICE that the Receiver has requested that the Court approve the Ariel Quiros Settlement Agreement and include in the order approving such Agreement a provision permanently barring, restraining and enjoining any person or entity from pursuing claims, including claims you may possess, against Ariel Quiros relating to the SEC Action (the “Bar Order”).
PLEASE TAKE FURTHER NOTICE that the material terms of the Ariel Quiros Settlement Agreement is that Ariel Quiros, on behalf of himself and anyone that claims through him (including his wife and children), shall fully and forever waive any rights, title, claims or interest in or against any and all Receivership Entities and any and all real or personal property or other rights owned, used or possessed by the Receivership Entities in the operation of the Jay Peak Resort or the Burke Mountain Hotel and their related assets. The Settlement Agreement further provides that Ariel Quiros shall have no remaining right, title, claims or interest whatsoever in the Receivership Entities, the Jay Peak Resort, the Burke Mountain Hotel, Jay Peak Mountain, Burke Mountain, including but not limited to, any real or personal property related to or utilized by the Jay Peak Resort and Burke Mountain Hotel. The Receiver has a present and immediate need to resolve Ariel Quiros’ claims to any of the Receivership Entities, including their property or proceeds of their sale, so that he may undertake a sales process of the Jay Peak Resort and Burke Mountain Hotel and their related assets and distribute the proceeds of those sales, subject to Court approval, to the Investors who may be entitled to share in such distribution, as to be determined by the Court at a later time Ariel Quiros is waiving such rights in exchange for a broad release from the Receivership Entities and the Receiver’s promise to seek the entry of a Bar Order.
PLEASE TAKE FURTHER NOTICE that copies of the Ariel Quiros Settlement Agreement; the Motion for (i) Approval of Settlement between Receiver and Ariel Quiros; (ii) Approval of Form, Content and Manner of Notice of Settlement and Bar Order; and (iii) Entry of a Bar Order [ECF No. 501] (the “Motion”); together with the proposed Bar Order; and other related papers, may be obtained from the Court’s docket in the SEC Action or from the website created by the Receiver (www.JayPeakReceivership.com). Copies of the Motion may also be obtained by email or other written communication to Kimberly Abbate at email@example.com or by telephone by calling Ms. Abbate at 954-759-8929.
PLEASE TAKE FURTHER NOTICE that the final hearing on the Motion, at which time the Court will consider approval of the Ariel Quiros Settlement Agreement including grant of the releases and issuance of the Bar Order, is set before the Honorable Darrin P. Gayles, the United States Courthouse, 400 North Miami Avenue, Miami, Florida 33128, in Courtroom 11-1, at 1:30 p.m. on December 19, 2018 (the “Final Approval Hearing”).
