Greater Des Moines developer Dan Stanbrough, who took five businesses into bankruptcy court in 2010 only to have the cases rejected by judges or withdrawn by his attorney, has filed for personal bankruptcy in federal court in Florida.

Stanbrough and his wife, Tammy, claimed debts of $9.3 million, mostly related to business ventures, and assets of $2.4 million in the filing in U.S. District Court for the Central District of Florida.

According to the filing earlier this year, the couple is living in Palm Coast, Florida, and area near Jacksonville, where Tammy Stanbrough has family.

In 2010, Dan Stanbrough attempted to reorganize the finances of five limited liability companies that controlled development properties. One of the cases was dismissed by a federal bankruptcy judge, and Stanbrough later withdrew the filings for the other four companies. Read more

At the time, Stanbrough maintained that the financial problems dogging the limited liability companies resulted when Regions Bank rebuffed attempts to refinance loans through another lender. Regions eventually auctioned off several Stanbrough properties. One notable property, the Keck City Center at Fifth and Grand avenues in downtown Des Moines, ultimately was purchased by Canadian investors. Read more

The Stanbroughs frequently battled banks and business partners. The personal bankruptcy filing in Florida lists eight instances in which banks, bankers, attorneys and former business partners are accused of various forms of fraud and malpractice.

According to the filing, Dan Stanbrough is due $105,000 in dividends from American Abstract Co., where he once was president, and $2.2 million from former partners who also filed for bankruptcy during the financial crisis.

The Stanbroughs claim $2.3 million in real estate assets, all in Greater Des Moines, and other financial assets of $107,400. Among their personal property, the Stanbroughs say in the filing that they have framed hockey jerseys valued at $1,250.

According to the filing, the couple has no monthly income.
