Coleman Adams Construction had already won a 1-point-six million dollar judgment against the Foundation. That was 88 days ago. Federal Bankruptcy law sets the clock back NINETY days. The petition filed today is retroactive, taking the matter back to where it stood two days BEFORE Coleman Adams won the judgment against the National D-Day Memorial Foundation.
