Ind. Decisions - One bankruptcy law ruling from 7th Circuit today
In In the matter of: UAL Corp., a 25-page opinion, Judge Hamilton writes:
A claims trader buys claims against bankrupt debtors from creditors at a discount. See In re Kreisler, 546 F.3d 863, 864 (7th Cir. 2008). This appeal addresses how purchased claims can be affected by a debtor’s decision to assume or reject executory contracts from which those claims arose. We affirm the district court’s judgment holding that the purchaser of a prepetition unsecured claim arising from executory contracts is not entitled to a “cure” that would pay it 100 cents on the dollar for the claim because the debtor did not assume the executory contracts at issue.
