Brown's companies went into bankruptcy in Houston this week, months after Brown personally filed for -- and then withdrew -- bankruptcy protection in Miami. The Wall Street Journal is citing court documents stating that all of Brown's companies, except for the Houston office on Dacoma, have shuttered, we haven't been able to find those documents.
Brown Medical Center, which manages Brown's extensive business interests, has "unpaid operating liabilities expected to exceed $1.7 million by the end of the month," according to motions filed by attorneys for trustee Ronald J. Sommers.
The motions also lay out the trustee's intent to liquidate most of the companies and sell the assets to pay creditors, as "no buyer has expressed interest in acquiring the business enterprise or the equity interests in the companies as a going concern."
