Lawyer For Upper Crust Workers Loses Bid to Buy Wellesley Location
A judge reportedly rejected efforts to keep a firm connected to the former Upper Crust owner from returning to the bankrupt pizzeria's storefront.
Weeks after an auction of assets belonging to the now-bankrupt The Upper Crust, an attorney representing former workers at the pizzeria chain reportedly has failed in an effort to buy the now-closed location on Central Street in Wellesley.
The Boston Globe reports that lawyer Shannon Liss-Riordan had offered to pay $200,000 more than the offer sale price that had been accepted at auction last month for the Wellesley, Watertown, Lexington and South End locations. The winning bid for those assets came from a firm with ties to the former owners of The Upper Crust.
But according to the Globe, bankruptcy Judge Henry Boroff said it was too late for the lawyer's offer since all of Upper Crust’s assets were auctioned on Dec. 19.
