Date Filed#Docket Text
05/08/202410903Affidavit of Service of Liz Santodomingo Regarding Post-Confirmation Corporate Quarterly Operating Report for the Three-Month Period Ended March 31, 2024 (related document(s)10900) filed by Kroll Restructuring Administration LLC.(Malo, David) (Entered: 05/08/2024)
05/06/202410902Order of U.S. District Court Judge Colleen McMahon signed on 5/3/2024. In its most recent brief, the Liquidating Trustee said that this case might well turn out to be Pyrrhic victory for MOAC. I fear his assessment was correct. It is scant comfort that MOAC's battle has eliminated from the books an obviously erroneous outlier ruling by our Court of Appeals; recapture of the tenancy, not improvement to bankruptcy jurisprudence, was its goal. But I can see no way around RPI; and unless the Second Circuit (where I am sure this case is headed yet again) thinks I am wrong about the issues of forfeiture, waiver or estoppel, no legitimate bankruptcy purpose would be served by not applying the RPI rule in this case.As such, the Lease is to return to the possession of the Sears Liquidating Trustee and MOAC's appeal to this Court is dismissed as moot for lack of any remedy.This constitutes the decision and order of the court. This is a written opinion (Fuschillo, Yadira) (Entered: 05/06/2024)
