Allen Casey Files Personal Bankruptcy, Saying Debts Are Far More Than Assets

Thursday, February 27, 2014

Chattanooga businessman B. Allen Casey has filed personal bankruptcy, shortly after bankruptcy was filed on one of the properties in his control on the waterfront at the site of a controversial barge.

The filing says he has up to $50,000 in assets and over $1 million in debts.

An attorney who is suing him claims that Mr. Casey had pulled up to $7 million out of the riverfront property, while leaving a number of attorneys and investors owed large sums of money.

Mr. Casey was the founder of the Chattanooga Choo Choo entertainment complex. 

He announced plans several times for developments at the riverfront property, but nothing was ever built and the floating barge restaurant remained unopened and for a time was partially underwater.
