Former talk show host Morton Downey Jr. is asking a federal bankruptcy court in Newark, N.J., for protection from numerous creditors, including banks, businesses, restaurants and jewelers, according to court documents.
Downey lists liabilities of nearly $2.4 million in a petition filed Friday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court seeking protection under Chapter 11 of the federal bankruptcy law.Downey attorney Brian D. Spector would not comment on whether Downey's financial troubles were related to the demise of "The Morton Downey Jr. Show," which featured the host ranting and taunting guests. The program was canceled after two years.
