The drama surrounding the action/adventure movie "Max Havoc: Curse of the Dragon" continues. Stressing the fact that the straight-to-video movie was brokered on Guam and shot locally, and that all the witnesses except the movie's producer reside on Guam, a California judge tentatively rules that a Guam court would have more jurisdiction over the trial for the troubled picture.
Matthew Borden, the San Francisco attorney representing the Guam Economic Development and Commerce Authority, explained, "The public interest factors are very compelling in that [producer John] Liang and his company came to Guam with the specific purpose of defrauding the government and basically getting any kind of money they could out of the people, and they did. Then they left and didn't keep any of their promises. And I think it's a meaningful case on Guam.
What's more, Borden says Liang alleges that the governor of Guam plays an integral role in the suit and fully expects Felix Camacho to be called to testify. The California judge is expected to fax his ruling out to the parties in the near future.
