Charlotte Bankruptcy Lawyer Bryan W. Stone of Arnold & Smith, PLLC answers the question “What is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?”
A Milwaukee, Wisconsin-area Conservative activist is blaming officials in Milwaukee’s municipal government for his bankruptcy.
The 61-year-old Seymer owns—through his company ODS Properties—as many as seven rental properties in the Milwaukee area. Seymer’s buildings have been cited over the years for numerous code violations by the city’s Department of Neighborhood Services.
Seymer told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel that a city inspector revealed to him that “higher-ups and City Hall” were conspiring to get even with Seymer for helping expose issues with the city’s “OpenSky” digital police radio system, which came to light during Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett’s unsuccessful 2010 gubernatorial campaign against current Governor Scott Walker.
In his bankruptcy filing, Seymer listed some $147,126 in assets and more than a million in liabilities. Department of Neighborhood Services head Art Dahlberg told the Journal-Sentinel that Seymer’s own bankruptcy petition shows he only owes about $10,000 in forfeiture and re-inspection fees.
