A Montgomery County, Pa., lawyer has been ordered to report to jail for contempt of court on Friday unless he complies with a federal judge’s order that he turn over documents to the U.S. Department of Labor from two employee benefits companies he controls.
In an order handed down on Feb. 23, U.S. District Judge Mary A. McLaughlin said she had “no choice but to incarcerate” attorney John J. Koresko V of Bridgeport, Pa., because he has refused to comply with her August 2004 order that enforced the Labor Department’s subpoenas despite being hit with contempt fines of $250 per day since March 17, 2005.Court records show that Koresko has already paid $62,250 in fines and currently owes another $26,500.
