If your name is on this list that means your distribution checks has been returned to our office. The only way for you to receive your check is to file a change of address form with the Court.

Please remember the checks are dated for August 27, 2014 and will be voided after 90 days. So you will need to file the change of address form ASAP! 

As we are still receiving mail returned to our office, this list will be updated to reflect additional creditors with invalid addresses. Please check this website frequently to ensure your distribution check has not been returned to our office. 

The change of addresses will need to be filed directly with the Court. We have supplied you with a Change of Address form under the “Documents/Forms” tab of this website for your convenience. If your name is listed above, please complete the form and mail it to: United States Bankruptcy Court, Clerk of the Court, One Church Street, Montgomery, Alabama 36104. We would request this be completed as soon as possible.

 

September 10, 2014

On September 10, 2014, in Allegro Law LLC.,

At this time all distributions have been mailed out to creditors. Please remain mindful that all distributions are being mailed via United States Postal Service and delivery could take several weeks depending on your location. Please do not contact our office or the Clerk’s office requesting the status of your distribution as we would not have access to this information.

As a reminder, all checks were dated for August 27, 2014 and are voided after 90 days. Therefore, it is important if you receive a check to remember to negotiate it before November 25, 2014. Failure to do so could result in your distribution being voided and it not being reissued .

The Trustee’s office has had several inquiries as to whether we can reissue checks in the names of other individuals because of name changes or in the event of a creditor’s death. Unfortunately, we are unable to reissue checks at this time as they were issued pursuant to a Court Order. If your received a check in the name of a deceased creditor we would recommend you contact a probate attorney of your choosing for advice on how to administer the funds.

Finally, many of the checks have been returned to our office as having invalid addresses on record with the Court. If you have not received a check and have moved since the filing of your Proof of Claim please file a Change of Address form immediately with the Court. The Change of Address form can be found under the “documents/forms” tab on this website. Although the form states you need your Allegro Law, LLC account number it is not a required piece of information.

WARNING—The unauthorized cashing of the distribution checks is illegal. Criminal bankruptcy fraud, wire fraud, and mail fraud is investigated by federal law enforcement agencies and is punishable by up to 30 years in prison and a fine of $1,000,000. If you believe you have received a distribution check and you are not the intended recipient please return the check to the sender.

 

August 29, 2014

On August 29, 2014, in Allegro Law LLC.,

On August 27, 2014, the Court approved the Interim Trustee’s Final Report (“ITFR”) in its entirety as proposed. The Trustee has begun making distributions pursuant to that Order from the funds on hand in the Bankruptcy Estate. As there are several thousand checks that will have to be mailed, this process will likely take several weeks. Priority and Unsecured distributions will be sent separately. In other words, if you have a valid priority and unsecured claim then it is likely you could receive your distribution via two mailings separated by several weeks.

Once all checks have been mailed, this website will be updated again to reflect that fact. If you believe you are entitled to a distribution, but have not received a check yet, please do not contact the Trustee’s office or the Court until this website has been updated to reflect that all distributions have in fact been mailed out. If you have transferred your claim to a claim’s agent you will not be receiving a distribution from the Bankruptcy Estate. Likewise, if you are represented by an attorney you may not be receiving a distribution directly; please contact your individual counsel to determine how your distribution will be handled.

On August 26, 2014, the Court orally approved the Interim Trustee’s Final Report (“ITFR”) in its entirety as proposed. Once the Court enters the written Order approving the ITFR the Trustee will begin making distributions pursuant to that Order from the funds on hand in the Bankruptcy Estate. As there are several thousand checks that will have to be mailed, this process will likely take several weeks. Once all checks have been mailed, this website will be updated again to reflect that fact.

July 17, 2014

On July 17, 2014, in Allegro Law LLC.,

On July 15, 2014, the Trustee filed the Interim Trustee’s Final Report (“ITFR”) with the Court requesting permission from the Court to make an interim distribution to all valid creditors. The ITFR can be viewed in its entirety by clicking “ITFR”. Please note, the Trustee’s office is not able to give legal advice to any creditors, so please consult legal counsel of your choosing if you have any questions regarding the report. The Court set the ITFR for a hearing on August 26, 2014. Barring any objections, after the hearing the Court should issue an Order on the ITFR. If the Court grants the ITFR, the Trustee will then begin making interim distributions pursuant to the Order approving the ITFR. The Trustee has proposed making 100% distributions to valid priority claims and 55.9% distribution to valid general unsecured claims. As this is an interim distribution, the Trustee anticipates making a final distribution at an unknown later date.

If you wish to make an objection to the Trustee’s proposed distributions it will need to be in writing and mailed to the: United States Bankruptcy Court, Clerk of the Court, One Church Street, Montgomery, Alabama 36104. Only objections made in writing and mailed to the Clerk’s office will be considered valid and heard by the Court.

As a reminder, if you have moved since filing a claim and have not mailed in a change of address form to the Court it is very important that you do so at this time. The change of address form can be found on the “Documents/Forms” tab and once completed needs to be mailed to the: United States Bankruptcy Court, Clerk of the Court, One Church Street, Montgomery, Alabama 36104.

 

June 26, 2014

On June 26, 2014, in Allegro Law LLC.,

On June 24, 2014, the Court approved the final Application for Professional Fees and Expenses that we intend to file before moving the Court to allow for interim distribution to creditors. The Trustee’s office anticipates the Interim Trustee’s Final Report (hereinafter ITFR) requesting  to make the interim distribution to be filed with the Court in the next eight weeks. The Court will then set a hearing on the ITFR allowing any party in interest to be heard on any objections to the report. Barring any objections, the Court will issue an Order approving the report. Once the Order is entered approving the ITFR, the Trustee’s office will issue interim distributions to creditors pursuant to the Order approving the ITFR.

As a reminder, if you have moved since filing a claim and have not mailed in a change of address form to the Court it is very important that you do so at this time. The change of address form can be found on the “Documents/Forms” tab and once completed needs to be mailed to the: United States Bankruptcy Court, Clerk of the Court, One Church Street, Montgomery, Alabama 36104.

March 20th, 2014

On March 20, 2014, in Allegro Law LLC.,

As a reminder, all status updates will only be made through this website. Those telephoning our office will be referred to this website for status updates. The newest update may be several months old; however is still current.

We expect to file a request with the Court to be allowed to make an interim distribution to creditors within the 2014 calendar year. However, within the next month our office will be mailing a letter to each creditor that has filed a Proof of Claim. However, if you are currently represented by counsel or if you have transferred your Proof of Claim to a third party you will not receive a letter and will not have to take any further action. The purpose of the letter is to verify the Court has the correct address for each creditor. If you receive the letter and it is addressed correctly then you do NOT have to take any further action. However, if you do not receive a letter from our office by April 25, 2014, or if you receive the letter and it is incorrectly addressed please mail a change of address request to: United States Bankruptcy Court, Clerk of the Court, One Church Street, Montgomery, Alabama 36104. The change of address request can be found under the “Forms” tab on this website. Our office is unable to entertain change of address requests by telephone or mail; it has to be filed with the Court.

As we begin the process of requesting the Court to allow interim distribution there will be several professionals filing Applications for Professional Fees and Expenses. The applications will be filed by attorneys and accountants that have been employed by the Court to work with the Trustee in this case. Each application will have an itemized list of the time that was spent by that professional and the expenses incurred by that professional and it will be served on creditors pursuant to the Court’s order limiting service. The Court will set a hearing on each application and any party in interest in the Allegro Law, LLC case will be provided an opportunity to object or be heard on the applications. All objections must be with the Court pursuant to Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure. All applications will have to be filed and have a final disposition by the Court before distributions to creditors can occur.

As a reminder, the Trustee’s office is unable to provide legal advice to anyone. All telephone calls to our office will be referred to this website for guidance. If you are in need of advice, or further explanation of the above stated processes, please contact an attorney of your choosing.

 

November 14th, 2013

On November 14, 2013, in Allegro Law LLC.,

On November 6, 2013, the Trustee completed reviewing individual claims and filed the final Motion to Strike or Reclassify claims for individual claimants (we are still awaiting Orders on some of the last filed Motions to Strike or Reclassify). There remaining six corporate claimants that have filed Proof of Claims are still pending litigation to determine their validity.

On November 4, 2013, the associated litigation in the Hamm v. Americorp, et al. case proceeded to trial. As you may be aware, Americorp was the processing agent for Allegro Law, LLC. Despite rigorously defending the case during the discovery phase, at the point of being held in contempt and attempting to stall the case at every point, the Defendants and their attorneys failed to attend the trial and did not put on a defense to the Plaintiff’s case. At this time we are awaiting the Court’s anticipated entry of Judgment against the Defendants. After the judgment is entered, we will begin the likely long process of attempting to collect the judgment.

Although we have finalized the Motion to Strike or Reclassify individual claims phase of this case, we will be unable to make a distribution to creditors until the remaining six corporate claims have been litigated. We anticipate (but do not guarantee) the final corporate claims to be heard by the Court in early 2014.

The final major hurtle that will have to be completed before distributions to creditors is made is a “Prompt Determination” from the Internal Revenue Service. This is a legal process where the bankruptcy estate requests the IRS verify the estate has no liability with the service. This process takes a minimum of six months and was begun in October, 2013.

As a reminder, the Trustee’s office is unable to provide legal advice to creditors. If you are in need of advice, or further explanation of the above stated processes, please contact an attorney.

Finally, our office is unable to entertain change of address requests. All change of address requests need to be made to: United States Bankruptcy Court, Clerk of the Court, One Church Street, Montgomery, Alabama 36104.
