In re: 15375 Memorial Corp., No. 09-1391

By FindLaw Staff on December 23, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In Chapter 11 proceedings filed by two companies involved in oil and gas explorations, district court's order dismissing the bankruptcy petitions for lack of good faith is affirmed as there is ample evidence supporting the finding of the court that the debtors' bankruptcy petitions served no valid bankruptcy purpose and were used primarily as a litigation tactic to protect debtors and their parent companies from liability in pending litigation.
