Shutdown could delay local residents considering bankruptcy

Local businesses and individuals pondering bankruptcy could see that process delayed further by the federal government shutdown.  The 341 hearings, the initial meetings of creditors, are not being affected by the shutdown.  That's because they're handled by trustees who are private attorneys and are paid out of filing fees.  Sturgeon Bay attorney David Clowers says, however, other bankruptcy proceedings that are administered by the U.S. Department of Justice are another story.


The shutdown could further impact the federal court system on January 25th.  That's when the courts will run out of money.
