The JOHN STOKES saga continues in KALISPELL, MT, where the controversial SKYLINE BROADCASTERS Talk KGEZ-A (Z-600, THE EDGE)/KALISPELL owner and host is battling the U.S. Trustee's office, which is moving to convert his Chapter 11 voluntary bankruptcy to Chapter 7 liquidation, according to the ASSOCIATED PRESS. The government moved on APRIL 22nd to convert the case to Chapter 7, and STOKES' attorney filed a response MAY 1st.
STOKES filed for bankruptcy on MARCH 4th in the wake of losing a defamation judgement for saying on the air that RV dealership and auction barn owner DAVAR GARDNER and his son TODD GARDNER lied under oath and submitted a false affidavit during previous litigation with STOKES, and obtained a bank loan using fraud.
