New Case Law Summaries
Mid-Atlantic Update
The Second Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the controversial decisions issued two years earlier by the Southern District of New York and has restored certainty to the restructuring world. To read more, click here.

The Southern District of New York issued a ruling based on its reading of an intercreditor agreement that resulted in the unusual result of a subordinated creditor receiving payment of post-petition interest on its claim prior to the payment of principal on a senior creditor's claim.

The Second Circuit Court of Appeals issued a summary order holding that a detailed description of collateral in a financing statement filed by a secured party, and later amended less than 90 days before a debtor's bankruptcy filing, did not result in an avoidable preference under the Bankruptcy Code.

Midwest Update
The Indiana Court of Appeals held that (i)-lack of public access hidden by a seller's attempt to induce buyers with false claims about the property's easy access to public roads provided justification for rescission of a sales contract and an award of damages and (ii)-the making payments to an escrow account pending resolution of the access issue did not constitute a breach of contract.

The United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit held that (i) the district court did not abuse its discretion in declining to estop the trustee from arguing that lenders were not "persons aggrieved" with standing to appeal the bankruptcy court's substantive consolidation order, (ii) the "persons aggrieved" doctrine remained valid and would not be reconsidered by the court and (iii) the district court did not err in dismissing lenders under the "persons aggrieved" doctrine.  To read more, click here.
The Minnesota Court of Appeals held that under Minnesota law, a promise to forgive debt is a credit agreement and must be in writing in order to be enforceable.  To read more, click here.
