Grocers of Maine’s Bankruptcy Case Dismissed

James Ebbert, the Court-Appointed Receiver for Associated Grocers of Maine, filed a voluntary petition under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code on August 26, 2011. Goodman Law Firm, who represents 53 independent grocers in their dispute with the now-defunct Associated Grocers of Maine, objected to the filing and, at a hearing held on September 12, 2011, Goodman Law Firm was successful in persuading the Bankruptcy Court to dismiss the matter for the Receiver’s lack of authority to file a bankruptcy case on behalf of AGME. The matter will remain in State Court where the independent grocers will continue to press their demands for return of their capital contributions and a set off against the balances of their capital accounts.
