Isn't this guy pretty much broke and the bank two seconds away from seizing the house which he all but abandoned as he's been Florida?

Fun Fact: If you declare bankruptcy in Florida, you are allowed to keep your primary residence safe from creditors.

Ahhh, so that's his racket...

He gave a speech at my high (read prep-) school in RI, would have been '86 (?) just after he retired and right before he threw Tony Eason under the team bus, and me so not a Patriots fan.

I didn't take much away from it other than "overweight white jock jackass taking money to preach just-say-no". Thursday morning assembly inspirational speaker - I can be reasonably sure I would've been high for it, thank god.

Given when and for whom he played, he's clearly lost some chemical abuse saving throws.

If I recall correctly, that's true all over. Not just in Florida

I'm not sure. I think you may be right for quite a few states. I remember it back from an old 60 Minutes segment on bankruptcy laws. Gosh, that might've been 15 years ago?

The day Fox and Friends figures out that it's probably good to vet their guests before letting them on live television will be a sad day for comedy indeed.

Bankruptcy is federal law, not state law, so the same Bankruptcy Code is used in all 50 states. All bankruptcy proceedings are handled by federal bankruptcy courts that do nothing but bankruptcy.

You're the lawyer. I obviously defer to your judgement. Damn, tried looking for that 60 Minutes episode. It had something to do with financial fraud. Something I watched as a teen after football was over at the house.

Are you aware of any financial reason to have Florida as your residence to shield assets? I'm almost sure it was something about shielding assets.

I dunno why but I was very amused by the guy.

No, everything I know about bankruptcy is in that post (not really, but close to it). That's likewise a practice specialty and it's not mine. Also, I don't know anything about Florida law other than a couple of unrelated issues I dealt with years ago involving a choice of law question.

It's about shielding assets in Bankruptcy.

Federal Law governs procedure, but Nabb's partially wrong on substance (and here's where I put my disclaimer that I'm not a bankruptcy attorney either). State law has a massive impact on property rights, specifically determining the scope of exemptions for real property. And guess what - Florida has the most pro-debtor law on the books.

Well, like I said, I know nothing of bankruptcy from a substantive standpoint, other than creditor priorities and that was in commercial bankruptcy.

Yeah, about 60% of what I know on the subject is what I read on the Nolo page fifteen minutes ago. Like you said, it's a specialist field.

I knew it was something.

Florida's debtor protection homestead provision is one of the broadest in the
Because of the scope of the protection afforded, persons from other states with heavy debts or large court judgments against them have been known to purchase expensive estates in Florida, a famous example being
One event that can drastically affect the value of a homestead is municipal incorporation. If a 160 acre (650,000 m²) non-municipal homestead is on land that is later incorporated into a municipality, the homestead will be grandfathered in and remain protected for the owner and his heirs. However, for any future purchasers of all or part of the property, the protected land will drop to the ½ acre (2,000 m²) allowed within a municipality.

You suck at quoting. Thanks for the sort of info though.

Yeah, he called into the radio show that I listen to in the morning. The guy is a grade-A douche who was throwing out accusations that his neighbor was a wife beater. After they asked him some background and context questions, he got pissed, said that they couldn't be part of his big media event to "save the lives of 300 teenagers," that they "pooped their pants," and then hung up. It was very bizarre.

Good. Him being a little nuts means that these precious little snowflakes were right to party there and further destroy shiat and that I hope their awesome parents sue the shiat out of him amirite?

Just remember, conservatives, that concussion settlement was a farce and a money grab and there is no real problem.

EMB ,

Thank you.  Came here to say the same thing.  Sure this guy's interview was something of a train wreck, but it does not mean these rotten crotch fruit's actions are some how ok.

What is the issue at hand here?  Dude's solvency, or 300 shiatheads trashing a house?

No kidding.... those kids are no better than a bunch of crackheads using an "abandoned property"....

Is it your house?  No?  Were you invited in?  no?  GTFO.

macadamnut: He gave a speech at my high (read prep-) school in RI, would have been '86 (?) just after he retired and right before he threw Tony Eason under the team bus, and me so not a Patriots fan.

I didn't take much away from it other than "overweight white jock jackass taking money to preach just-say-no". Thursday morning assembly inspirational speaker - I can be reasonably sure I would've been high for it, thank god.

Given when and for whom he played, he's clearly lost some chemical abuse saving throws.


odd.  he came to my school to speak, too.  Except when he spoke at my school he wasn't white.
