TRANSCRIPTION OF AUDIO FROM VLOG:
Hi there! My name is Melissa Youngman. I'm a bankruptcy attorney practicing in Orlando, Florida. Welcome to the first ever episode of Bankruptcy Bites. Bankruptcy Bites is my new blog and video blog dedicated to all things bankruptcy. It will be short updates on current cases, case law updates, and things like that. It's meant for bankruptcy practitioners and anybody who might be interested in just finding out what's going on in the bankruptcy and insolvency world this week.
So, I decided to start episode one this week with a case that's near and dear to my heart. It is the Chapter 7 filing of the Alfred Angelo bridal shop. The reason that's dear to my heart is because I just got married a year and a half ago. And I just can imagine what's going through the minds of all the customers who have pending wedding dress and wedding party dress orders. So, it was a Chapter 7. It was filed in the southern district of Florida, in the West Palm Beach division. Judge Hyman has been appointed and Margaret Smith is the trustee, Patricia Redmond is the debtor's counsel and so far the case has been pending for just a couple of days. It was filed last Friday, it's a Chapter 7. We're not real sure what's going to happen in the case at this point because the only filing so far are the petition and schedules, and the notice of creditors.
