Circuit Dismisses Branham Corp.’s |Head-Scratching Bankruptcy Claims

CHICAGO (CN) - "Judges are not Sudoku masters who enjoy filling in a grid with few hints about where things go," Judge Evans wrote in dismissing Branham Corporation's claims against the bankruptcy estate of Boone County Utilities.

The Seventh Circuit found that the record, including transcripts of several hearings, offered little clarity as to the basis of Branham's claims. "The bankruptcy judge did his best to focus Branham's efforts, but we have the feeling that he left most hearings, as would anyone, scratching his head about exactly what Branham was arguing," Evans wrote.
