Starting on September 5, 2017, the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors on behalf of the bankruptcy estates of HH Liquidation, LLC and its affiliated debtors (“Debtors”) filed approximately 178 complaints seeking the avoidance and recovery of allegedly preferential and/or fraudulent transfers under Sections 547 and 550 of the Bankruptcy Code.
The Debtors filed voluntary petitions for bankruptcy in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware on September 8, 2015 under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. On September 21, 2015, pursuant to section 1102 of the Bankruptcy Code, the Office of the United States Trustee appointed the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors.
The various avoidance actions are pending before the Honorable Kevin Gross. For preference defendants looking for an analysis of defenses that can be asserted in response to a preference complaint, below are several articles on this topic:
