Five separate companies have submitted petitions to Nashville's U.S. Bankruptcy Court in the first two and a half days of this week:
• Carroll Properties at Cheap Hill LLC. Chapter 11, Aug. 10. Assets and liabilities each between $1 million and $10 million. Further details to be provided in schedules not yet filed. Debtor's attorney: Sam Crocker.
Entrepreneur Charles R. Carroll owns this company, which itself owns the former home of the late John Lindahl, co-founder of water-heater maker State Industries, on Highway 12 in Cheatham County. Carroll built and sold Nashville-based Integrated Biometric Technology Inc. some years ago. He is now CEO of ASET Corp., based in Dayton, Ohio, where he was once a police officer.
The major creditor in this case is FirstBank in Nashville. The filing says it has extended $2 million in unsecured credit to Carroll Properties.
