A U.S. bankruptcy court judge is reopening a 2001 case involving the daughter and son-in-law of GOP gubernatorial candidate Nathan Deal. According to AJC reporters J. Scott Trubey and Aaron Gould Sheinin:
The bankruptcy stems from a failed sporting goods business started by Carrie Deal Wilder and her husband, Clint Wilder, that Deal invested in and left him with $2.1 million in debts.
A U.S. bankruptcy trustee sought to reopen the Wilders’ case after it was revealed that Clint Wilder was not eligible for a discharge of his debts, including those from the sporting goods store, because he did not divulge a prior bankruptcy in 2001.
