Christopher Cahill will present on the enforceability of intercreditor agreements in bankruptcy at the 2019 CBA Commercial Bankruptcy Seminar, to take place on November 12, 2019. Intercreditor agreements modify pre-existing priority rankings of the respective claims of secured creditors, and usually cabin the junior creditor’s rights and remedies against the debtor. What drafting pitfalls can be avoided (or engineered)? Will a well-drafted intercreditor agreement be enforced against the junior creditor by a bankruptcy court, in the face of some possibly overriding law or policy? And does the bankruptcy court have jurisdiction to enter a final order on a dispute?

LG attorneys Lee Williams, Kevin Clancy and Anne Brochmann recently were able to secure a with prejudice dismissal of a lawsuit in the Northern District of Illinois alleging that a Hospital, physician, and licensed social worker “conspired to deprive” and “deprived” plaintiffs of their civil rights during a DCFS investigation and Juvenile Court proceedings. The lawsuit arose out of the death of a minor and the subsequent removal of the minor’s siblings from their parents’ custody. Although the Hospital, physician, and licensed social worker, as private actors, were not immunized for participating in DCFS investigations under federal law, the Northern District agreed with LG’s attorneys that the Federal claim against LG’s clients under Sections 1983 and 1985(3) should be dismissed.
