In the case of Dowling vs Chicago Options Associates, did any on the losing side end up with Wikipedia mgmt?

The head of Chicago Options Associates, Michael E. Davis, apparently sought to hide $800,000 from the plaintiff, Brian Dowling. At one point, Davis was found to be in contempt of court and a bench warrant for his arrest was issued! Is that Davis the same Michael E. Davis who was on the Wikimedia Foundation board of trustees for several years and is currently the Chief Operating Officer of Wikia, Inc. (which is Wikipedia's for-profit spin-off company)?

If that's the case, why is it that controversy, fraud, and deception so readily seem to follow the Wikimedia projects and their spin-offs?
