Ex-NFL superstar Michael Vick will have to re-work his plan to emerge from bankruptcy following his suspension from football and loss of millions in endorsements.
Judge Frank J. Santoro says Vick's strategy is likely to leave a $9 million "hole" for the former Atlanta Falcon, on top of payments he'd still owe creditors. Following his convictions on both federal and Virginia felony charges connected with illegal dog-fighting, Vick has racked up over $20 million in debts.
Santoro called Vick's plans to earn cash shaky after they were mentioned in a recent court appearance.
Among the reported possibilities were his participation in a documentary that he hopes will earn him about $600,000. Santoro suggested that Vick consider selling more of his assets, saying he'll give the prison parolee another chance to present the court with a new plan. Vick hopes to keep at least two of the houses he owns, which he'd maintain for himself and his mom in Virginia.
