To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Texas Public Information Act , I hereby request the following records:
In light of the recent ESCO Marine Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing (case number 15-20107 assigned to United States Bankruptcy Judge Richard Schmidt), I request the financing statements and deeds of trust for all collateral submitted by the ESCO Marine company on June 30, 2014.
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 business days, as the statute requires.
Your request for copies was forwarded to me for response. A search of our Uniform Commercial Code records does not reveal any results in which ESCO Marine is named as the secured party. A search of the UCC records for results in which ESCO Marine was a named debtor did yield some results, but nothing that matches the exact date provided, June 30, 2014. Please note that deeds of trust are not on file with this office.
I have attached an index of results in which ESCO Marine is a named debtor and I have highlighted the filings made in May or June 2014. As our office has nothing responsive to your request below, we must consider this request closed. However, if you would like copies of any of the filings listed in the index, please let us know by submitting another request.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
