Law 360
Michael S. Etkin is quoted in Law360 regarding the decision by the bankruptcy court in the Fisker Automotive chapter 11 case in favor of our clients overruling the objections to claims based upon the mandatory subordination provisions of the Bankruptcy Code. Our clients purchased membership units of a non-debtor special purpose vehicle which itself invested in the preferred stock of Fisker Automotive. Etkin, representing these membership unit purchasers in the bankruptcy proceedings of the electric car maker, argued that the claims of these creditors against Fisker should not be subordinated and junior to all other unsecured creditor claims. In a 21-page opinion, the Court agreed.
