Bill on Bankruptcy: Versace Mansion Up for Sale, Casey Anthony
July 10 (Bloomberg Law) — This week’s Bloomberg bankruptcy video kicks off with two items usually associated with tabloid journalism. First, Bloomberg Law’s Lee Pacchia and Bloomberg News bankruptcy columnist Bill Rochelle discuss the upcoming sale of the Versace Mansion, which became entangled in the Scott Rothstein Ponzi scheme after fashion designer Gianni Versace was murdered at the doorstep of his home in 1997.
Next is the bankruptcy of Casey Anthony, who was acquitted of killing her two-year old daughter. She’s again in the news after agreeing to buy her life story back from the bankruptcy trustee for $25,000.
Plant workers at Oreck Corp. are at risk of losing their jobs now that the Hong Kong-based maker of Hoover and Dirt Devil vacuum cleaners won the auction to buy the business.
The video ends with discussion on the last opinion by Bankruptcy Judge Bruce Markell who is leaving the bench this month to become the Jeffrey Stoops Professor of Law at Florida State University. His last opus reads like a law review article analyzing the conduct necessary for waiver of constitutional rights recognized by the Supreme Court’s decision in Stern v. Marshall.
