Traffic Monsoon Supreme Court writ denied
Charles Scoville’s bid to legalize Ponzi schemes through the Supreme Court has come to an end.
Following distribution to the Supreme Court Justices, a decision on Scovilles’ Traffic Monsoon writ of certiorari was reached last Friday.
Details were published earlier today, revealing Scoville’s writ has been denied.
Going forward, this means the SEC’s case against Scoville will resume in the Utah District Court.
The granted preliminary injunction stands, and the Receiver doesn’t have to worry about litigation interfering with the victim claims process.
Scoville can still fight the SEC’s civil case but I think that’s highly unlikely. In granting the preliminary injunction the District Court signaled the strength of the SEC’s case.
I can’t say exactly when but I imagine we’ll see settlement negotiations emerge over the next few months. Stay tuned…
Over two and a half years of wasted time. And you can’t help but lulz about the lawyers who won’t get paid.
Pick your clients more carefully next time.
You can only escape justice for so long and Scovilles time to enjoy freedom is almost up.
Scoville’s in prison for the kiddy fiddling. This will just ensure he’s penniless when he gets out (SEC = civil case).
Where’s my damn money!?
So since Scoville is in prison now.
How does that work for the court case going forward?
How much longer before this whole thing wraps up?
Surely everyone that is anyone knows there is no restarting this by now.
“So since Scoville is in prison now.

IF they don’t settle, they drag him in chains to sit in court.
While it’s very possible these Scoville scammers have more $ hidden away, (despite the begging TM victims and the court to pay their attorney fees)this next trial stage is going to be EXPENSIVE. A settlement seems very realistic.
Most scammers don’t waste such a tremendous amount of resources to fight all these doomed procedural battles.
Anyone with 1/2 a brain knows the more $$$ they have to litigate/delay the REAL causes of action, the better the settlement deal.
IMO Scoville is going to go to jail for scamming a long time after he finishes his current sentence for child sexual abuse.
Brian, The SEC action is a civil case, and therefore it will be forfeiture of assets, possibly a fine.
So far there has been no criminal charges filed against him for Traffic Monsoon. There is no guarantee there will be either. So going to prison for Traffic Monsoon is not a sure thing.
