CL H Winddown LLC (CarbonLite) - Preference and Fraudulent Transfer Defense Lawyer
Specifically, Plaintiff seeks to claw back certain payments made to the individual Defendants, avoiding and recovering all (a) preferential transfers of property of the Debtors that occurred during the ninety (90) day period prior to the commencement of the bankruptcy proceedings, pursuant to sections 547 and 550 of the Bankruptcy Code and, (b) in the alternative, any transfers that may have been fraudulent conveyances pursuant to sections 544, 548 and 550 of the Bankruptcy Code.
In addition, Plaintiff seeks to disallow, pursuant to sections 502 of the Bankruptcy Code, any claim that the individual Defendant has filed or asserted against the Debtors or that has been scheduled for the individual Defendant.
The Debtors in these chapter 11 cases are: CarbonLite Holdings LLC; CarbonLite Industries LLC; CarbonLite P Holdings LLC; CarbonLite P LLC; CarbonLite PI Holdings LLC; CarbonLite Pinnpack LLC; CarbonLite Recycling Holdings LLC; CarbonLite Sub-Holdings, LLC; Pinnpack P, LLC; CarbonLite Recycling LLC; and Pinnpack Packaging LLC.
On September 7, 2021, the Bankruptcy Court entered an order confirming Debtors’ First Amended Chapter 11 Plan of Liquidation. The Plan became effective on September 20, 2021 on which date the CarbonLite Liquidation Trust was established.
The bankruptcy case and these adversary actions are before the Honorable Judge John T. Dorsey.
The United States Bankruptcy Code provides many affirmative defenses to preference actions, contained within Section 547(c). For example, the most common defenses that may be available to a Defendant under Section 547(c) may include:
• the transfer was a contemporaneous exchange for new value given to the debtor (i.e., the debtor received something of value in exchange for the transfer); 11 U.S.C. §547(c)(1);
• after such transfer, Defendant gave new value to or for the benefit of the debtor (i.e., the Defendant extended additional credit to the Debtor after receiving the transfer) 11 U.S.C. §547(c)(4); or
• the transfer was in payment of a debt incurred by the debtor in the ordinary course of business or financial affairs of the debtor and the recipient (i.e., Defendant made the transfer under ordinary business terms). 11 U.S.C. §547(c)(2).
