NO CLE - Mass Tort Chapter 11s

Even with the asbestos cases largely resolved, chapter 11 remains the preferred — if not the only — way for debtors to address mass tort liability. Chapter 11 cases involving mass torts typically present complex and interwoven issues of jurisdiction, claims determination, choice of law, insurance, liability of third parties, injunctive protection and the like. Using as examples pending chapter 11 cases in Massachusetts (New England Compounding Company, involving tainted drugs) and Maine (Montreal, Maine & Atlantic RR, involving a massive explosion), this panel will discuss the strategic and legal considerations facing debtors, trustees, injured claimants and other creditors as they work toward or against a successful chapter 11 case.
