January Filings

There were 102,600 total bankruptcy filings in January 2010.  This compares to 117,000 in December, 115,500 in November, and 130,200 in October, 2009.  The rest of the year is: 125,500 September; 120,000 in August; 130,500 in July; 124,800 in June; 120,400 in May; 128,700 in April, 131,000 in March, 102,000 in February and 89,000 in January.  That is 12% less than December but 15% higher than January a year ago.
