WILMINGTON — A former North Carolina state senator has filed for a type of bankruptcy protection in federal court.
Records show Julia Boseman filed a voluntary Chapter 7 liquidation in bankruptcy court Friday. The filing lists $1.75 million owed to creditors versus listed assets of $47,300.
A Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows the filer to eliminate debts. The StarNews of Wilmington first reported the filing Monday. Boseman lawyer Clayton Cheek told the newspaper the filing will help the Wilmington Democrat get a fresh start.
The filing lists more than 20 creditors, some for mortgage debt. Boseman’s former and current domestic partners were listed among the co-debtors on some debt.
Boseman finished six years in the Senate last month. She was the first openly gay member of the General Assembly.
