Arizona Commissioner, Montano, To Pay WBO Over $200K

Arizona Commissioner, John Montano, will pay WBO over $200,000
 
After twelve years of intense litigation, the World Boxing Organization has obtained a resounding judicial victory over co-defendants:  former Regional Vice-President, John Montano (now State Athletic Commissioner of Arizona; former referee, Ismael “Wiso” Fernandez, and his wife, former WBO Executive, Virginia Pinto.  Together they fraudulently schemed to illegally use the name and the initials of the WBO, and its regional organizations, in an attempt to divert funds in the amount of $92,000 (Ninety-Two Thousand Dollars).
 
The Docket Number: KPE1996-0764 that goes back to October of 1996 was awarded to the WBO by the San Juan Superior Court Judge Ivonne Diaz on January 14th 2009.  She has ordered the co-defendants Montano and Fernandez couple pay the $92,000 plus the legal interests since 1996 and $50,000 in attorney fees-damages well over $200,000 (Two Hundred Thousand Dollars), according to attorney José Cuevas-Segarra
