The continuing saga of Ed Stolz, the owner of Royce International Broadcasting Corp., has taken yet another twist.
The Federal Judge who on January 28 ordered Stolz to surrender to U.S. Marshals no later than February 2 took it up a notch on Wednesday (2/17).
Why? Stolz ignored the order, and in the judge’s words was “a fugitive from justice.”
Late Thursday, U.S. Marshals arrested him.
Meanwhile, it is now known that Stolz in early February filed a Petition to Deny the transfer of the stations stripped from his possession by the court and given to a Receiver.
