ORDER Re Debtor's Motion for Attorneys's Fees

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: Harris immunity extends to Ellett Law Offices and Ellett’s conduct while it was Chapter 11 counsel for Debtor. The same public policy considerations favoring immunity for trustees and court appointed attorneys in a Chapter 7 case also favor such immunity in a Chapter 11 case.  As to Continental’s Motion to Dismiss, Plaintiffs have standing to pursue their equitable subordination claims and Continental’s Motion is denied.

01/24/14 Scannell v. JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A. et al (2:13-ap-00302-DPC) 01/24/14

Holding: The parties present an issue of first impression, namely, which has priority in Arizona: a restitution lien or a purchase money deed of trust? The Court concludes that a purchase money deed of trust against real property has priority over an earlier recorded restitution lien.

Under Advisement Decision Determining Dischargeability of Debt

Judge Daniel P. Collins
05/02/13 Two Brothers XI, Inc. et al (2:10-bk-23048-DPC) 05/02/13

Holding: Enterprise contends it is entitled to superpriority administrative expense claims because the adequate protection provided to it by the Debtors was insufficient to cover the actual decrease in the value of its collateral. Because Enterprise has not proven that its collateral decreased in value, the Court denies Enterprise’s Superpriority Application.
