U.S. Magistrate Judge Madeline Cox Arleo in Newark federal court also ordered him to undergo mental-health treatment.

    Meanwhile the Allied Chapter 7 Involuntary Bankruptcy proceedings in Newark, New Jersey appear to moving along in quite a fast speed. The 24 separate complaints were notified of the bankruptcy, with scheduled hearings mostly moved back to October, as objections to Charles K. Schwartz trustee appointment were heard and Schwartz's rebuttal. It appears appraiser, auctioneer, accountants, and attorney firm for the new trustee.

    Creditors were able to obtain their choice of trustee over Schwartz's objection and his attorney’s original motion. Named was Eric R. Perkins, Esq., McElroy, Deutsch, Mulvaney & Carpenter, Ridgewood, New Jersey.

    Author’s reply » Essex County Jail will not give me the information, but I will
    accept yours as being reliable.


    In that regard, I did mention it in today's story, as well have
    edited the archive stories to reflect the information. The condition
    was $2 million in real estate collateral, according to the court
    record, and perhaps the ability or paperwork is the delay.


    If you see any other errors or typo's, please let me know at or here---your choice.

    Author’s reply » Not according to the court record, and Bloomberg:




    I will note in a story that while granted bail, he remains in jail,
    according to a well informed source.
