Unsecured creditors expected to go unpaid in Sbarro LLC 's second trip through bankruptcy say that the pizza chain is blatantly disregarding landlords and others owed money by the company, Dow Jones Daily Bankruptcy Review reported today. The official committee representing Sbarro's unsecured creditors on Monday filed an objection to Sbarro's proposed $20 million bankruptcy loan, which it says sets the restaurant company's restructuring on a path that hurts the committee's members.
