Recent cases, which analyze creditors’ rights to bring state law fraudulent transfer claims in the event such claims were not brought by bankruptcy estate representative, have critically tested the bounds of fraudulent transfer litigation. In Tribune, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals denied the creditors of their rights to claw back $8.3 billion received by the stockholders prior to the company’s buyout. This ruling is in contrary to the earlier Lyondell Bankruptcy Court ruling. A Second Circuit summary order, which accompanies the Tribune case, confirmed the dismissal of a state law claim with respect to the Tribune rationale.
