Buccellato Chooses to Pay Judgement....

Apparently paying the judgement was a far better option than turning over his personal financials.

Strange, showing your "personal financials" is usually no problem when you have two sets of books. Maybe he was worried that someone would actually audit them.

Now his creditors can't get jack shit. Who wants to bet he'll manage to jew the rest of his creditors out of their money by managing to keep the property?

He's got a different set of lawyers here than for the Hidden Lake Academy, Inc. bankruptcy proceedings. Not that that is anything too extraordinary in and of itself. Different attorneys all have their different areas of greatest expertise. However, given that we're talking about Leonard Buccellato here, it struck me that he must be a familiar figure to a fairly large percentage of Atlanta's legal professionals by now...

So he coughed up the money rather than open his own finances for review? Could this bite him the ass in the end (not that he'd mind). How is he going to explain being able to magically pay off one debt without paying off the other liens?

This is a bit of a surprise..Berger and Montague noted in their last filing 07-10-09 that the Judgement paid was not from Buccellato's personal assets, but from the 'trust' held by  what appears to be the Bankruptcy attorneys... Berger and Montague is also requesting  Buccellato pay their fees for the last six month debacle of trying to get recovery of the judgement - that portion was not paid.

The net settlement after attorney fees and settlement distribution fees among the 213 claimants that were allowed, is approximately  $315,000. which was to be distributed on a sliding scale depending  on the amount of tuition families paid.  So, if a family had a child for two years, closed their eyes to what was happening at HLA , that family will be compensated more than a family that pulled their  child  a month, two months etc. into the program and lost  pre-paid tuition. A flawed distribution in this case.  No reimbersement  fees for the families that incurred debt to bring forth this suit was asked of the court by B&M.   33 claims were denied.  Even if the amount was distributed evenly it would only be approximately $1,400. dollars per family, with close to  $18,000,000. in  HLA revenue  taken in from the total 246  claimants. ..   Go figure...
