If they couldn't make a go of it then, it shouldn't be too surprising that this version of the company had the same problems. It seems that their one huge project (Cakewalk?) staved off bankruptcy for only so long.
IIRC the Bridgeport yard has been in Chapter 11 numerous times in the past decade. There have been numerous lawsuits too.
