BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - Creditors from the bankruptcy of Montana’s Yellowstone Club have asked an appeals court to keep the resort’s founder in jail.

Attorneys for the Yellowstone Club Liquidating Trust said in a Monday court filing that club founder Tim Blixseth should remain in the Cascade County jail until he turns over details from a 2013 Mexican property sale.

Blixseth was jailed April 20 after U.S. District Judge Sam Haddon ruled that the Washington state real estate mogul had not come clean on the $13.8 million sale of the Tamarindo resort.

An emergency petition for his release is pending before the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Creditors say Blixseth apparently transferred the money to family members and others to avoid more than $250 million in civil fraud judgements against him.
