On Friday the SEC filed a motion intended to keep most of Ari Quiros' assets frozen as part of its legal action against the EB-5 developer.
Quiros has asked the court to unfreeze $300,000 in monthly professional expenses and $100,000 in "living expenses."
The SEC argues "approximately $90,000 of the monthly expenses are for luxury items, non-necessities, or for undocumented expenses. Accordingly, the Court should deny his request."
Among Quiros' reported expenses:
• Adult Daughter’s Living Expenses: $6,310
