Forbes recently wrote a piece talking about how Digital Chocolate Founder and CEO Trip Hawkins owes a helluva lot of back taxes to the state of California (somewhere in the $20 million ballpark). Apparently this has something to do with money owed way back when Hawkins gaming company 3DO went bankrupt, and his efforts to get out of paying it have apparently not been going swimmingly.

If you're not familiar with Hawkins, the tenacious game exec founded 3DO in 1991, then went on to found Electronic Arts, which is currently one of the biggest gaming companies around, and more recently, Digital Chocolate, which makes mobile games and popular Facebook games such as Millionaire City and, more recently, Zombie Lane.
