Out of the Pan and Into the Fire: Controversial Third-Party Releases and Mass Tort Chapter 11 Cases



ROOM: Lucerne 3 (Lucerne Level)

SPEAKERS
Candice L. Kline
, Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr, LLP, Chicago, IL
Eric Van Horn, Spencer Fane, Dallas, TX
Hon. Judith Fitzgerald (Ret.), Tucker Arensberg, PC, Pittsburgh, PA

The S.D.N.Y.’s recent Purdue Pharma plan confirmation appeal decision rejecting nonconsensual, third-party releases of the Sackler family dropped like a bomb on Chapter 11 practice. Other recent cases, such as Boy Scouts of America, USA Gymnastics, and several Catholic dioceses, have also attracted academic and political attention to the practice of releasing non debtors from liabilities without having to file bankruptcy themselves, despite creditor objections. Besides fairness and due process concerns, the legality of these releases outside the asbestos context is now under serious attack. Supporters argue that the releases are essential for complex settlements superior to drawn out tort litigation. Critics may have an upper hand following Purdue Pharma, and the U.S. Supreme Court or Congress may finally weigh in. This panel will discuss releases in Chapter 11 practice, the simmering controversy and circuit split regarding nonconsensual, third-party releases, and where the practice is headed in mass tort cases.

Making Your Unsecured Creditor Client Feel More Secure


 

ROOM: Alpine (Lucerne Level)

SPEAKERS
Richard J. Payne
, Morrison & Payne, Baristers & Solicitors
Joseph A. Marino, Marino, Mayers & Jarrach, LLC

A U.S. Attorney and a Canadian Barrister and Solicitor will discuss the usual position of an unsecured commercial creditor and contrast and compare how that position can be dramatically improved by taking security. They will review how standard credit applications can be revised to give the creditor that flexibility. They will discuss when security would be helpful and when it would not. They will discuss the relationship between risk and security. They will look at UCC and PPSA filings and whether these should be part of a creditor’s standard package of terms and conditions when establishing a credit relationship. Emphasis will be placed on the need for security when the trade involves crossing the border from the USA into Canada.

Uniform Interstate Deposition and Discovery Act – A New Weapon in the Arsenal of a Creditors’ Rights Attorney


 

ROOM: Alpine (Lucerne Level)

SPEAKERS
Wanda Borges,
Borges & Associates, LLC
Lorna Walker,
The Law Offices of Sweet & Walker, PC

Amid heated litigation, you ascertain that a key witness for your prosecution is in a different state and refuses to travel to be deposed. Further, documentation which you need to prove your case or disprove a counterclaim is in the hands of a third-party individual or corporation. In the past, that information and/or documentation appeared to be beyond your reach without resorting to a special proceeding and its concomitant costs and efforts in the foreign state. That is no longer the case! The Uniform Interstate Depositions and Discovery Act (“UIDDA”) was adopted to simplify discovery across state lines and to establish a standardized method for litigants in one state (“trial state”) to take depositions and obtain discovery from individuals or entities located in other states (“discovery state(s)”). The panelists will explain how the UIDDA works and enhances your ability to collect your clients’ debts.

Out of the Pan and Into the Fire: Controversial Third-Party Releases and Mass Tort Chapter 11 Cases



ROOM: Lucerne 3 (Lucerne Level)

SPEAKERS
Candice L. Kline
, Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr, LLP, Chicago, IL
Eric Van Horn, Spencer Fane, Dallas, TX
Hon. Judith Fitzgerald (Ret.), Tucker Arensberg, PC, Pittsburgh, PA

The S.D.N.Y.’s recent Purdue Pharma plan confirmation appeal decision rejecting nonconsensual, third-party releases of the Sackler family dropped like a bomb on Chapter 11 practice. Other recent cases, such as Boy Scouts of America, USA Gymnastics, and several Catholic dioceses, have also attracted academic and political attention to the practice of releasing non debtors from liabilities without having to file bankruptcy themselves, despite creditor objections. Besides fairness and due process concerns, the legality of these releases outside the asbestos context is now under serious attack. Supporters argue that the releases are essential for complex settlements superior to drawn out tort litigation. Critics may have an upper hand following Purdue Pharma, and the U.S. Supreme Court or Congress may finally weigh in. This panel will discuss releases in Chapter 11 practice, the simmering controversy and circuit split regarding nonconsensual, third-party releases, and where the practice is headed in mass tort cases.

Making Your Unsecured Creditor Client Feel More Secure


 

ROOM: Alpine (Lucerne Level)

SPEAKERS
Richard J. Payne
, Morrison & Payne, Baristers & Solicitors
Joseph A. Marino, Marino, Mayers & Jarrach, LLC

A U.S. Attorney and a Canadian Barrister and Solicitor will discuss the usual position of an unsecured commercial creditor and contrast and compare how that position can be dramatically improved by taking security. They will review how standard credit applications can be revised to give the creditor that flexibility. They will discuss when security would be helpful and when it would not. They will discuss the relationship between risk and security. They will look at UCC and PPSA filings and whether these should be part of a creditor’s standard package of terms and conditions when establishing a credit relationship. Emphasis will be placed on the need for security when the trade involves crossing the border from the USA into Canada.

Uniform Interstate Deposition and Discovery Act – A New Weapon in the Arsenal of a Creditors’ Rights Attorney


 

ROOM: Alpine (Lucerne Level)

SPEAKERS
Wanda Borges,
Borges & Associates, LLC
Lorna Walker,
The Law Offices of Sweet & Walker, PC

Amid heated litigation, you ascertain that a key witness for your prosecution is in a different state and refuses to travel to be deposed. Further, documentation which you need to prove your case or disprove a counterclaim is in the hands of a third-party individual or corporation. In the past, that information and/or documentation appeared to be beyond your reach without resorting to a special proceeding and its concomitant costs and efforts in the foreign state. That is no longer the case! The Uniform Interstate Depositions and Discovery Act (“UIDDA”) was adopted to simplify discovery across state lines and to establish a standardized method for litigants in one state (“trial state”) to take depositions and obtain discovery from individuals or entities located in other states (“discovery state(s)”). The panelists will explain how the UIDDA works and enhances your ability to collect your clients’ debts.
