ABI-Live: SCOTUS Crossfire: Will Purdue Be the Last Mass Tort Bankruptcy?

The Supreme Court on Aug. 10 granted an emergency application for a stay and granted certiorari in the case of Harrington v. Purdue Pharma L.P. The Court will consider whether the Bankruptcy Code authorizes a court to approve, as part of a plan of reorganization under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code, a release that extinguishes claims held by nondebtors against nondebtor third parties without the claimants’ consent. The case is scheduled to be argued in the December 2023 argument session. Hear experts on both sides of the issue as they prognosticate on how the use of third-party releases may unfold before the Supreme Court.
