Chapter 5 and Estate Property and Section 363, Oh My!

Event Description

Hybrid Event - Choose participation type at check out.

In 2023, the Eighth Circuit joined several other circuits in ruling that chapter 5 avoidance actions can be sold as estate property. See Pitman Farms v. ARKK Food Co. LLC (In re Simply Essentials LLC), 78 F.4th 1006 (8th Cir. 2023). Join this IWIRC panel for a discussion of the Simply Essentials decision, including its rationale and implications going forward. Can the debtor grant its lender a prepetition security interest in chapter 5 avoidance actions? What does it mean for the debtor to have an “inchoate” interest in such actions? How does the Eighth Circuit’s holding compare to the holdings of other circuits? We will discuss these important issues and more.
