The US Marshals Service will seize assets owned by Saipan casino operator Imperial Pacific International (CNMI), including “computer hardware, furniture, and equipment, motor vehicles, casino gaming machines, and the two crystal dragons,” in order to satisfy a US$5.4 million judgement against seven former construction workers.
Imperial Pacific paid $10.278 million for the dragons that hang in the property’s lobby. LASVIT, a Czech glassmaking company, installed them. It is a “crystal gem sculpture with two flying dragons.”
TakeCare Insurance Company has also filed a lawsuit against the operator for more than $200,000. TakeCare stated that it provided prepaid medical and dental insurance services to IPI employees on Saipan for the months of June, July, and August 2020, but IPI failed to pay for these services.
“The principal balance owed is $215,491.82. “However, despite repeated requests, Imperial Pacific failed to pay TakeCare for these services,” according to the lawsuit. “Imperial Pacific’s failure to pay for TakeCare’s healthcare insurance services constitutes a breach of the parties’ written contract.”
