"I won't tell you," Copelin replied.
"Come on, Sherman, give us the damn banks," Wessel said.
"I won't do it," Copelin repeated.
"I'm the damn treasurer of the company," roared the volatile Dimaggio. "I demand you tell me."
"Absolutely not," said Hubbard.
On Saturday, Hubbard and Copelin filed a $15 million slander suit against Arum for calling them "hoodlums" and "dangerous people." The petition also claims that Arum repeated false allegations that Hubbard and Copelin sold tickets to seats not shown on the master seating plan and appropriated the proceeds and that they siphoned off ancillary income for themselves by negotiating contracts that should have accrued for the benefit of LSI.
On that note, the week closed. But don't throw away your programs. U.S. Attorney John Volz in New Orleans said the grand jury was looking into possible violations of federal laws, such as interstate transportation of stolen funds and mail fraud. And FBI Special Agent Francis M. Mullen, assigned to New Orleans, said his staff was conducting an investigation relating to the fight's finances.
Tune in next week.
