But, the filing was/is deficient:


“It appears that the debtor has filed a petition which is not accompanied by the statement of financial affairs
and schedules required by 11 U.S.C. 521(1). Pursuant to Fed.R.Bankr.P. 1007(c), the debtor shall file said
statement and schedules within 15 days after filing the petition. The deficiency cure date appears below.

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the required fee and/or omission(s) described above shall be
attached to a copy of this notice and received by the Clerk of Court by the Deficiency Cure Date
shown below or the pleading shall be stricken from the records of the Court or shall be referred to
the Court for further order.“


OptInRealBig have until 11 April to sort things out.


Some may remember Richter sued Spamcop, and won a temporary restraining order which was later dissolved.
