Fifth Circuit, 07/07/2010
In re Texas Pig Stands, Inc.
Trustee liable for a tax deficiency incurred in running the debtor's business, where the trustee exceeded his authority, violated the plan, and committed willful misconduct, and therefore the Trust Agreement did not limit his liability.
Seventh Circuit, 07/09/2010
In the Matter of Solis
Under the terms of the contingent fee agreement, the attorney is entitled to a percentage of only the money he actually recovered from other parties, not a percentage of the money the debtor had received earlier.
Eighth Circuit, 07/09/2010
In re Polaroid Corp.
In a creditor's appeal of the bankruptcy court's approval of a debtor's sale, free and clear of any liens, of its assets, the appeal is dismissed where no party obtained a stay of the sale pending appeal, and thus the appeal was moot.
Ninth Circuit, 07/07/2010
Ta Chong Bank Ltd. v. Hitachi High Techs. Am., Inc.
