Sears shareholders sue former CEO, claiming he looted the company

The saga of the Sears bankruptcy is continuing with another lawsuit against the former chairman, Eddie Lampert, claiming that Lampert and his associates siphoned off billions of dollars in assets from the company and purposely drove it into bankruptcy. Sears stores were scattered across Rockland County and the state of New York, causing many to wonder how the chain could have failed. The plaintiff in the lawsuit, Sears Holdings Corp., is overseeing the liquidation of Sears' assets and is representing the interests of the company's shareholders.

The uncertain piece of the puzzle is the effect the bankruptcy filing has on a person's post-bankruptcy credit score.
