Fox Rothschild attorneys successfully prosecuted claims against debtor and others for dissipating estate assets.

Bankrupt form Vitelco owner Jeffrey Prosser and wife Dawn Prosser have made no payment on nearly $1 million in contempt sanctions imposed earlier this year, prompting the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to order the couple to pay on schedule or lose their last house and risk jail time.

The court found Prosser in civil contempt of court in 2012 for the dissipation of a valuable wine collection and has issued two orders imposing sanctions that currently total nearly $1 million.
