Vandercar CEO filing Chapter 11 bankruptcy

It seems that the downturn in the economy is not only affecting the little guy, but also multi-millionaires as well. Recently, the head of Vandercar Holdings made the decision to file for Chapter 11 personal bankruptcy. Under Chapter 11 bankruptcy, the CEO will be able to partake in asset liquidation in order to repay any personal and business debts. However, the principal of Vandercar is still intending to build a movie theater and shopping center.
