HAMMOND, Ind. (AP) - A federal judge has ordered Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan to appear in court to explain why payments to his son are not considered income.
A Gary couple are seeking to collect $350,000 from Farrakhan's 48-year-old son, who lost a lawsuit after crashing his father's Hummer into their car in 2003 and leaving the scene.
*A Hummer, his Dad's too. I bet when a Hummer hits you vehicle it is going to be bad.
Nasir Farrakhan has yet to pay any of the punitive damages awarded to Charles and Gladys Peterson, though they received $464,000 for their medical expenses from his insurance company.
*Does this surprise anyone? Now for the excuses.
The younger Farrakhan has said he cannot pay because he has no income, has never been employed and has no checking account or savings. He argues the $1,400 in cash he receives from his father each month is legally considered charity, even though Nasir Farrakhan has acted as head of the minister's 20-man security force for many years.
A 20-man security force? In America does he need this much security? If I remember correctly he had something to do with the death of Malcolm X. I guess he feels, vulnerable?
U.S. District Magistrate Andrew Rodovich on Dec. 11 ordered Louis Farrakhan and a financial representative of the Nation of Islam to appear in court in Hammond on Jan. 24 to answer questions from the Petersons' lawyers.
The couple's attorney, Michael Back, said the money Nasir Farrakhan is receiving from the Nation of Islam is income and can be garnished.
"We will continue to pursue this through every avenue possible to ensure the Petersons are paid every penny they are owed,'' Back said.
A telephone message seeking comment was left Wednesday by The Associated Press at the office of Abdul Arif Muhammad, who is listed in court papers as Louis Farrakhan's attorney.
