NAFER: Tribune and Federal Preemption of State Fraudulent Transfer Law

Do the safe harbor provisions of 11 U.S.C. § 546(e) also provide shelter to transferees from state law fraudulent transfer actions in nonbankruptcy courts? Does the doctrine of pre-emption apply to impact litigation outside of bankruptcy court? This panel will review § 546(e) after the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Merit Management Corp. LP v. FTI Consulting Inc. After the Merit decision, the Supreme Court sent back the case of In re Tribune Co., fraudulent conveyance litigation that was also pending before the Supreme Court, to the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. What did the appeals court do in Tribune II, and what impact does the court’s decision have on fraudulent transfer litigation by private litigants under nonbankruptcy law?
