THE OFFICIAL COMMITTEE OF UNSECURED CREDITORS OF CYBERGENICS CORPORATION WIN VICTORY BEFORE US COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE THIRD CIRCUIT, SITTING EN BANC
NEW YORK, NY May 29, 2003 – Representing The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors of Cybergenics Corporation, the Firm won a significant victory before the US Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, sitting en banc, in a bankruptcy case which has attracted national attention. The Court of Appeals reversed the decision of the District Court, which had held that a creditors committee lacks standing to assert fraudulent transfer claims on behalf of a bankruptcy estate. Last November the Third Circuit granted the Firm's petition for rehearing en banc and vacated the panel decision which had affirmed the District Court's ruling. As a general rule, only one percent of petitions for rehearing en banc are granted. The case is now being remanded to the original panel to address certain issues which were not argued before the full Court in February. The opinion issued on May 29 is 63 pages, including a dissent. The vote was 7-4.
The CL&M team consisted of Gary Sesser, Jim Gadsden, Roxana Nazari and Mark Sullivan.
