Delorean assets go to Ohio Firm
DETROIT - A federal bankruptcy court judge yesterday approved the sale
of DeLorean Motor Co.'s assets to a Columbus, Ohio firm for $1.5 million
despite an attempt by John DeLorean's brother to buy the firm.
Judge George Woods approved the purchase of DMC's 649 remaining
gull-winged sports cars, parts and distribution rights by Consolidated Inter-
national, a liquidation firm, saying it was in the best interest of the defunct
automaker's 700 creditors.
Charles DeLorean, a Lakewood, Ohio Cadillac dealer, had bid $10.5 million
for the company along with Mchigan Cadillac dealer Don Massey. Charles
DeLorean said his older brother asked him to try to save the company.
"Had our plan gone through, we would have had a chance to survive," said
Charles DeLorean. "Now I don't think there's even the remotest
Consolidated's bid won out over the larger bid by DeLorean's brother,
because the automaker owed the liquidation firm $9 million
State Dems reconsider efforts
to dump Milliken appointees
LANSING- Senate Democrats, at the request of Gov.-elect James Blan-
chard, will review a failed policy of dumping all of Gov. William G.
Milliken's appointees, which one senator said yesterday "has made us look
like a bunch of fools."
Of eight Milliken appointments to minor boards and commissions the
Senate considered, the necessary votes to reject a nominee were pulled
together only once.
Senate Democratic Leader William Faust, who from the start has opposed
the position adopted by his caucus, said he was contacted by Blanchard's
transition staff and asked to re-evaluate the Democratic position.
Faust said Blanchard feels "the present position is not workable."
However, the governor-elect last week said he mostly supported the position.
Amway denies fraud charges
GRAND RAPIDS- A spokesman for Amway Corp. yesterday vigorously
denied charges that the company and four senior officials defrauded the
Canadian government of more than $28 million over a 15-year period.
The four Amway Corp. officers were accused of using "false or fictitious
invoices and price lists to defraud" the Canadian government.
Amway officials named in the charges were Jay Van Andel, chairman;
Richard DoVos, president; C. Dale Discher, treasurer; and William J.
Halliday, executive vice president.
"Amway Corp. and its executives are totally innocent of any wrongdoing
and owe the Canadian government nothing," said Amway spokesman Jack
Wilke in a prepared statement. "Amway was surprised by the timing of this
action since the company has been negotiating in good faith with Canadian
Customs officials," Wilke added.
The charges will not deter the company from filing a $500 million libel suit
against the Detroit Free Press for publishing a story that detailed the man-
ner in which Amway allegedly deceived the Canadian government, Wilke
Amway has until Aug. 22, 1983 to file the suit and is waiting for the "ap-
propriate time" to press action against the newspaper, he said.
Judiciary Committee prohibits
deferred sentencing for rapists
LANSING - A bill prohibiting probation or deferred sentencing for con-
victed rapists and another cracking down on child-snatching parents were
approved yesterday by the State House Judiciary Committee.
"I think it's time we said ... we really do believe criminal sexual conduct
is'a serious crime in Michigan," said Rep. Mary Brown, the Kalamazoo
Democrat who sponsored the rape law revision.
The legislation was motivated by a recent Kalamazoo case in which a man
convicted of third degree sexual assault was freed under a deferred senten-
cing scheme by a visiting judge from Oakland County.
The bill applies only to first and third degree sexual assault which involve ac-
tual sexual penetration.
The child-snatching bill makes the crime a two-year felony, but it could
be considered a misdemeanor if the child is returned to his or her legal guar-
dian within seven days.
Israelis move to quash fighting
BEIRUT - Fierce fighting erupted yesterday between Lebanese
Christians and Moslems southeast of here, prompting Israel to rush hun-
dreds of soldiers in tanks and armored personnel carriers to the area to quell
A Lebanese government spokesman said that by dusk, Israel had moved
50 armored personnel cariers and tanks and more than 500 troops into the
mountain resort of Aley, eight miles from Beirut just outside the Shouf
The Israelis imposed a curfew and cut off all traffic between the Shouf
villages where fighting between Lebanese Christian and Moslem militia has
claimed dozens of lives during the last month.
The troop movements followed fierce rocket and artillery battles in Aley
and sniper fire between Shouf villagers, state-run Beirut radio said.
