Fired founder in bitter dispute with current owner

A judge has rejected a request from the founder of a Cody pharmaceutical manufacturer to partially shut down the facility and reinstate him as CEO.

Former Powell Valley Healthcare CEO and current fugitive Paul Cardwell remains nowhere to be found, but his attorneys still must defend him, a judge reiterated last week.

Cardwell is being prosecuted and sued for allegedly defrauding Powell Valley Healthcare out of nearly $848,000 between March and September 2011.

He retained attorneys Robert W. York of Indiana and Robert W. Horn of Jackson in early 2012 to defend him. Cardwell reportedly told his attorneys he would take a plea deal, but dropped off the map in August 2012, shortly before he was set to finalize the deal.

A 30-year-old Cody man stands to spend the rest of his life in prison after admitting to murdering his wife, 44-year-old Julie J. Friday, in February 2012.

On Tuesday, Myron James Friday pleaded guilty to first-degree murder as part of a plea agreement with the Park County Attorney’s Office.
