FLINT BANKRUPTCY REPORT 235-1970- You are not alone when filing for Bankruptcy. “ Arkansas coach John L. Smith filed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition Thursday for debts he incurred through real estate investments in Kentucky.”
Smith told The Associated Press in July he expected to make the filing but also was trying to avoid it.
Chapter Seven Bankruptcy is not just for the traditional poor or just regular folks.
Bankruptcy filing start with submission of schedules that show your debt and assets.
Bankruptcy debt relief can involve millions of dollars. “Documents filed in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in the Western District of Arkansas show Smith has assets of between $1 million and $10 million and debts of between $10 million and $50 million. The filing is preliminary and more details will be added to the record later.”
You may say I want a Chapter Seven Bankruptcy “A Chapter 7 filing is used to liquidate debts, as opposed to chapters 11 and 13 which are used for reorganization”
Bankruptcy gives you a fresh start. “Smith discussed his dismal financial condition during the summer because he didn’t want his situation to become a distraction when the No. 8 Razorbacks started playing games.”
Why are you in Bankruptcy? Here’s Smiths reason. “Smith said in July that he began the land investments when he was coaching Louisville from 1998-2002 and that he and other investors lost money when the real estate market softened.”
The fresh start of Bankruptcy and its fresh start allows you to stay focused on the issues of life. I am sure Arkansa supporters want Smith not to be distracted.
“After Arkansas fired Bobby Petrino in the spring, Smith came on board for a 10-month contract worth $850,000. He left Weber State, where he had accepted the head coaching job.”
Athletic director Jeff Long told the AP that Smith had been candid about his financial situation and he didn’t hold it against him, especially considering the economy.
Arkansas spokesman Derek Satterfield said he didn’t anticipate the program would issue a statement Thursday.
Messages were left seeking comment from Smith’s attorney, Jill Jacoway of Fayetteville.
YOU SHOULD NOT BE EMBARRASSED TO FILE FOR BANKRUPTCY SMITH IS NOT
Smith said in July he didn’t want his financial woes to impact the school.”From a personal standpoint, I don’t want the university being embarrassed, but I’m not embarrassed,” Smith said at the time. “It’s something that’s happened. I made some mistakes, and to be honest with you, I’m a football coach, not a businessman.”
