Due Process Alignment In Mass Restructurings, Sergio Campos, Samir D. Parikh 2022 University of Miami School of Law

Due Process Alignment In Mass Restructurings, Sergio Campos, Samir D. Parikh

Fordham Law Review

Mass tort defendants have recently begun exiting multidistrict litigation by filing for bankruptcy. This new strategy ushers defendants into a far more hospitable forum that offers accelerated resolution of all state and federal claims held by both current and future victims. Bankruptcy’s structural, procedural, and substantive benefits also provide defendants with unique optionality.

Bankruptcy’s resolution promise is alluring, but the process relies on a very large assumption: that future victims can be compelled to relinquish property rights in their cause of action against the corporate defendant and others without consent or notice. Bankruptcy builds an entire resolution structure on the …


Aggregation And Abuse: Mass Torts In Bankruptcy, Edward J. Janger 2022 Brooklyn Law School

Aggregation And Abuse: Mass Torts In Bankruptcy, Edward J. Janger

Fordham Law Review

Bankruptcy courts have become the favored forum for large corporate defendants who seek global resolution of mass tort liability claims. Whether this forum choice benefits the victims of those mass torts or facilitates their exploitation is unclear. The features of bankruptcy law that have made bankruptcy court attractive to defendants can be efficiency enhancing, but they can also be used opportunistically and beyond their proper scope. As a result, their use must be subject to safeguards. The good news is that, where torts of the debtor itself are concerned, the U.S. Bankruptcy Code already contains the necessary tools. This Essay …


Dissonance And Distress In Bankruptcy And Mass Torts, Andrew D. Bradt, Zachary D. Clopton, D. Theodore Rave 2022 University of California, Berkeley School of Law

Dissonance And Distress In Bankruptcy And Mass Torts, Andrew D. Bradt, Zachary D. Clopton, D. Theodore Rave

Fordham Law Review

This Essay reviews the highly successful Fordham Law Review symposium entitled Mass Torts Evolve: The Intersection of Aggregate Litigation and Bankruptcy, held in 2022. The symposium brought together judges, scholars, and practitioners who work on multidistrict litigation (MDL), bankruptcy, or both. The symposium was successful because it brought these groups into conversation at a time when high-profile mass tort defendants are increasingly turning to bankruptcy to escape MDL, while others involved in the MDL process seek to keep them in. The symposium was also successful—and distressing, in our view—because it highlighted disturbing trends in complex litigation.

This Essay makes …


Covid-19 Aggregate Litigation: The Search For The Upstream Wrongdoer, Robert H. Klonoff 2022 Lewis & Clark Law School

Covid-19 Aggregate Litigation: The Search For The Upstream Wrongdoer, Robert H. Klonoff

Fordham Law Review

The COVID-19 pandemic has generated many suits—including thousands of class actions—in which plaintiffs claim that defendants caused economic or health-related harm. Although the COVID-19 context may have led many plaintiffs’ lawyers to believe that the cases would be received with great sympathy, courts thus far have been very cautious, focusing closely—as they do in non-COVID cases—on whether the defendant has breached clear contractual commitments or has engaged in tortious or other wrongdoing. If anything, courts have been more skeptical and cautious in the COVID-19 context, recognizing that everyone has suffered due to the pandemic and that, in many instances, defendants …


The New Mass Torts Bargain, Samir D. Parikh 2022 Lewis & Clark Law School

The New Mass Torts Bargain, Samir D. Parikh

Fordham Law Review

Mass torts create a unique scale of harm and liabilities. Corporate tortfeasors are desperate to settle claims but condition settlement on the resolution of substantially all claims at a known price—commonly referred to as a global settlement. Without this, corporate tortfeasors are willing to continue with protracted and fragmented litigation across jurisdictions. Global settlements can be elusive in these cases. Mass torts are oftentimes characterized by heterogeneous victim groups that include both current victims and future victims—individuals whose harm has not yet manifested and may not do so for years. Despite this incongruence, future-victim claims must be aggregated as part …


The Constitutional Problem Of Nondebtor Releases In Bankruptcy, Adam J. Levitin 2022 Georgetown University Law Center

The Constitutional Problem Of Nondebtor Releases In Bankruptcy, Adam J. Levitin

Fordham Law Review

In recent years, nondebtor releases have become a common feature of big-case Chapter 11 bankruptcy practice. Nondebtor releases involve the release of creditor claims against third-party nondebtors pursuant to a bankruptcy plan confirmation order. Some nondebtor releases are consensual, meaning that they are done with the assent of the releasing creditor, but some are not.

This Essay argues that all nonconsensual nondebtor releases in bankruptcy are unconstitutional. The constitutional infirmities of nondebtor releases are layered: all non debtor releases—consensual or nonconsensual—are outside the scope of Congress’s authority under an original understanding of the Bankruptcy Clause; all nonconsensual nondebtor releases are …

When Cannabis Businesses Fail: Assignment For The Benefit Of Creditors As An Alternative To Bankruptcy, Edward S. Adams 2022 University of Minnesota Law School

When Cannabis Businesses Fail: Assignment For The Benefit Of Creditors As An Alternative To Bankruptcy, Edward S. Adams

Utah Law Review

Cannabis businesses should keep the ABC in mind if they begin to struggle. As the cannabis industry becomes a greater part of our economy, more practitioners need to be aware of the solutions to risks that come with running a business associated with cannabis. While the federal government appears to have taken a mostly hands-off approach with states with their own regulatory schemes, that does not address the concerns of a failing cannabis business. The ABC addresses those concerns and can serve as a valid substitute for filing for bankruptcy.

Scarlet-Lettered Bankruptcy: A Public Benefit Proposal For Mass Tort Villains, Samir D. Parikh 2022 Northwestern Pritzker School of Law

Scarlet-Lettered Bankruptcy: A Public Benefit Proposal For Mass Tort Villains, Samir D. Parikh

Northwestern University Law Review

Financially distressed companies often seek refuge in federal bankruptcy court to auction valuable assets and pay creditor claims. Mass tort defendants—including 3M, Johnson & Johnson, and Purdue Pharma—introduce new complexities to customary Chapter 11 dynamics. Many mass tort defendants engage in malfeasance that inflicts widespread harm. These debtors fuel public scorn and earn a scarlet letter that can destroy value for an otherwise profitable business. Scarlet-lettered companies could file for bankruptcy and quickly sell their assets to fund victims’ settlement trusts. This Article argues, however, that this traditional resolution option would eviscerate victim recoveries. Harsh public scrutiny has diminished the …
