Trustee MotionsPrint PDF
The firm has litigated hotly contested disputes on both sides of trustee motions: defending against the appointment of trustees to displace existing management in chapter 11 cases, and seeking the appointment of trustees based on fraud, mismanagement, and similar grounds. Among the higher profile of these disputes:
The firm has successfully defended the former financial manager of Bill Cosby's enterprises in a week-long trial over appointment of a trustee to wrest away control of her bankruptcy estate; at issue were concerns basic to an individual's ability to pursue a chapter 11 case.
The firm obtained the appointment of a chapter 11 trustee over Norman Maurer Productions and related entities claiming ownership of the rights to the Three Stooges. This was a critical step that led to a settlement determining that the rights to the Three Stooges belonged to our clients.
The firm successfully defended a motion to appoint a trustee in the Woodside Homes bankruptcy cases.
