Last fall, the National Hockey League (NHL) enjoyed a big off-ice victory when the US District Court for the District of Arizona found that it was entitled to recover from Jerry and Vickie Moyes and the Jerry and Vickie Moyes Family Trust (collectively, the "Moyes defendants") significant attorneys’ fees and expenses (up to $15 million) incurred by the NHL in connection with the bankruptcy cases of several corporate entities that the Moyes defendants controlled and that comprised the Phoenix Coyotes hockey franchise.1
