LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Well known Lubbock restaurants, formerly owned by convicted businessman Benny Judah, are now officially sold. A federal judge Wednesday morning signed off on a deal to sell Harrigan's locations in Lubbock & Odessa, along with Moose Magoo's in South Lubbock.
Local Sonic restaurant franchisee Rodney Warren bid $1,729,200.00 for the two businesses.
Judah owned a long list of well-known businesses prior to his 2009 indictment and subsequent guilty plea related to a $40 million Ponzi scheme involving 250 or so local investors, most of which are from the Lubbock area.
Judah is currently serving 25 years in prison.
