Press Mentions

Wojciech F. Jung is quoted in Reorg Research with respect to a decision issued by a U.S. Bankruptcy Court on September 11, 2017 in the Short Bark Industries case pending in Delaware. In that case Wojciech argued, and the Court agreed overruling contrary arguments by the Government, that the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision in Jevic did not foreclose court approval of agreements resulting in the distribution of funds to junior creditors ahead of senior creditors (i.e., class skipping). The Government has appealed that decision to a Delaware District Court. , Reorg Research , September 18, 2017
