Shareholder seeks probe into Burlington’s role in Nano-Tex

July 16, 2003 — A Burlington Industries shareholder is asking a federal bankruptcy court to look into the company’s dealings with subsidiary Nano-Tex LLC.

A hearing is scheduled for July 31 on a motion filed earlier this month by Walker Rucker, a Greensboro, N.C.-based investor, who has accused the company of not stating or understating its values in holdings such as Nano-Tex.

He wants the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware, which is overseeing Burlington’s Chapter 11 case, to approve an inquiry into the firm’s handling of Nano-Tex, whose fiber-enhancing nanomaterials are designed to repel or resist stains, wrinkles and water.

Rucker, who has reported owning more than 4 million Burlington shares, is seeking money for shareholders.
