Sharon Bialek’s ex-boyfriend Victor Jay Zuckerman, appeared recently with Attorney Gloria Allred to corroborate her accusation that Herman Cain groped her in 1997. Bialek’s credibility has been called into question by some due to extensive legal and financial troubles.
An examination of Illinois court record’s reveals, however, that Zuckerman has bigger financial and legal problems than she does. Court documents (1:10-cv-07844 DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS EASTERN DIVISION) reveal that Zuckerman, on Sep 15th of 2010, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in the Western District of Louisiana. His creditors include, among others, Stratford Center (with claims of $675,000.00), his ex-wife (with claims of $89,000.00), and the IRS (with claims of $50,000.00).
The lawsuit filed in Illinois, is an effort by Stratford Medical Center to recover funds from Stratford Pediatric, the practice owned by Zukerman. Documents in the case state that “In May 2010 (after the bench trial, but before the judgment was entered) Stratford Pediatric sold its assets to Central DuPage Hospital for $333,000.00 in cash. This money was mostly transferred to Zuckerman’s personal accounts. He soon went on a gambling and day trading spree and lost all of the money. In July 2010, Zuckerman moved to Louisiana.”
