Be Careful To Describe Litigation Or It Will Be Lost

Law360, New York (September 12, 2008, 12:00 AM EDT) -- On Aug. 12, 2008, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals decided the case of "United Operating, LLC".[1] The case sets forth the standard for preserving post-confirmation litigation under a plan of reorganization.

This case is likely to drastically change the way bankruptcy lawyers draft plans of reorganization and disclosure statements in the Fifth Circuit.
