Tommy Robinson's Bankruptcy Converted to Chapter 7 Liquidation

NOVEMBER 17, 2006 - Posted at 11:02 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The personal bankruptcy case of former Congressman Tommy Robinson has been converted by a judge to Chapter 7 liquidation.

Robinson and his wife Carolyn had been in Chapter 11 reorganization.  But at a hearing yesterday, Judge James G. Mixon told the Robinsons their $3 million debt was too large and that they needed a fresh start.

Tommy Robinson testified that he is planning to go to Africa, where he expects to work for the Democratic Republic of the Congo, earning up to $12,000 per month.  The judge told Robinson that the earnings would not be applied to his debt, under Chapter 7.

Robinson says he developed connections in Africa while he was in Congress.
