Debtwire’s Head of Legal Analysis Jack Tracy, along with Legal Analysts Richard Goldman and Paul Gunther, recently sat down to record episode two of their podcast series and discuss some of the more notable issues concerning today’s highest-profile Chapter 11 cases. In this episode, the legal team tackles Delaware Judge Mary Walrath’s approval of third-party releases proposed under Homer City Generation’s Chapter 11 plan, GSO Partners’ attempt to recoup a substantial contribution administrative expense claim against LINN Energy’s bankruptcy estate, the potential fallout from the Fifth Circuit Bankruptcy Appellate Panel’s dismissal of an ad hoc crossholder committee’s appeal of Peabody Energy’s USD 1.5bn new money restructuring transactions and why the date of Ultra Petroleum’s disclosure statement order carried a USD 300m price tag.
