Anthracite Capital, Inc. (OTC:ACPI) has filed a voluntary petition for relief under chapter 7 of title 11 of the United States Code.  The petition was filed in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York.  The chapter 7 filing was authorized by the company’s board of directors due to its current financial position, outstanding events of default under Anthracite’s secured and unsecured debt and other factors.  A bankruptcy trustee will be appointed by the court to assume the responsibilities of the liquidation of the business through the bankruptcy case.  Shareholders will most likely not receive any value due to the liquidation.
