Holding: Order denying confirmation of Debtor's chapter 11 plan of reorganization. The Court agrees with New York Community Bank that the Plan’s proposed treatment of its claim is not “fair and equitable” under Victor Gruen Assocs., Inc., 338 F.2d 826 (9th Cir. 1964) or any other authority Debtor cites.

Judge Daniel P. Collins
11/25/14 Sam Rei, L.L.C. v. Continental Group, LLC et al (2:14-ap-00319-DPC) 11/25/14

Holding: Plaintiffs’ allegations regarding Strojnik’s breaches of fiduciary duty to the estate and duty of candor to the Court, even if taken as true, are beyond the scope of special counsel’s required disclosure under Harris. To adopt Plaintiffs’ argued disclosure requirement would run contrary to the public policy rationale underlying Harris. The Court finds that Strojnik was sufficiently candid regarding its role as special counsel for the purpose of pursuing the Suit for the estate, that Strojnik acted within the scope of its appointment, that Debtor had notice, and that the Court approved its appointment. Strojnik is entitled to derived quasi-judicial immunity from Plaintiffs’ suit. The Complaint must be dismissed as to Strojnik.
