What You Filed vs. What You See

A quick note since the comments section on a few posts are burning up tonite!

Please realize that the clerks at the Bankruptcy Court who enter in the claim information have been known to make mistakes.  This is why we are seeing:

– the use of Chapter 7 vs. Chapter 11 in the heading on some reports like the Docket Report and the Claims Register.  We confirmed today that this was in fact a mistake and that the bankruptcy case did not “magically” move from Chapter 11 to Chapter 7.

– the use of total unsecured claim amounts from Box 1 of the Proof of Claim form despite some people filing out Box 5 with a priority claim.

There will be time to amend these claims – the important thing is that you got (or get) the proof of claim in before the end of business on Monday, April 27, 2009.

If you still have not filed, please think about working on it this weekend and dropping it off at the court in San Francisco on Monday.  The address is 235 Pine Street, 19th Floor, San Francisco.

If you are not in San Francisco, try to do your claim on Saturday and have it delivered using one of the overnight services such as FedEx or UPS.

    If you are planning to go by the clerk’s office on Mondahy to file your claim, please be aware of this, from the court’s web site:

    “All court visitors are required to provide a valid driver’s license or government issued picture identification card to the court security officers, prior to entering the Clerk’s Office and courtroom. Persons without the proper identification will be prohibited from entering the premises.”
    This applies to get to the clerk’s office, not just to go to the courtrooms.

    Also, do not go too late in the day. They will shut the doors at closing time, even if there is a line of people waiting submit filings.

Heller Highwater is not:

- a place to practice viscious and vindictive "whisper down the lane" rumour-mongering;

- a place to bad mouth co-workers;

- a place for diatribes against specific people or specific incidents;

- a place to heap pity on poor Heller Ehrman staff by outsiders;

- a place that discriminates or sets margins noting who is outside and who is inside - we even welcome supportive Heller Ehrman attorneys!;

- meant to further the demise of Heller Ehrman, LLP.

Heller Highwater is:

- a place for support, a place of empowerment, a place of passion;

- a place to learn about job leads, resume preparation, skill building, training, new opportunities, and how to succeed in a new workplace;

- a place to keep up on the latest news as to how Heller Ehrman management intends to treat its support staff as it winds down its operations - will it be every woman for herself? or will it be "let me hold the door for you and is there anything else I can do for you"?

- a place of refuge.
