Clearly Lasik franchisor charged with trying to have partner & plaintiff whacked

December 7, 2009

Dr. Michael Mockovak (left) was arrested November 14 and jailed on $2 million bail.

Prosecutors have charged the eye surgeon with two counts of solicitation to commit first-degree murder.

These are two good articles about this:

  1. Clearly Lasik co-founder accused of soliciting murder of partner and
  2. Eye doctor charged with arranging hit.

To add insult to planned-injury the “bad” doctor maybe using franchisor funds to defend himself against charges of trying to have a Russian Mafia-type whack his partner, Dr. Joseph King (right in picture above), and their former associate, a Mr. Brad Klock of Vancouver. (see Doctor in murder-for-hire case also facing civil suit)

The quote I like the most is:

…”he [the bad doctor] held no personal animosity toward Dr. King, only toward Mr. Klock”

It is my experience that franchisors do not respond well to being aggressively resisted, especially being sued.

Below is a video of Dr. Mockovak while, it appears, Dr. King  is in hiding.
