Under Advisement Order

Judge Daniel P. Collins
07/15/13 Sample (2:10-bk-38373-DPC) 07/15/13

Holding: So long as there is not a contrary published opinion from the District Court of Arizona, this Court will follow the opinions of the Ninth Circuit BAP, whether or not this Court agrees with the reasoning behind the particular BAP decision. The BAP in the Friedman decision held that the absolute priority rule does not apply in an individual debtor’s Chapter 11 case. The rationale for its 2-1 decision is set out in the extensive opinion penned in Friedman by Bankruptcy Judge Clarkson. Although this Court tends to favor the dissenting decision of Judge Jury in Friedman, for the reasons stated above, this Court feels duty bound to follow the majority’s holding in Friedman. Accordingly, the objection to the Debtor’s chapter 11 plan based on absolute priority grounds is hereby overruled.
