American Bankruptcy Institute Journal

In re Champion Enterprises Inc., the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware dismissed, inter alia, portions of the creditors’ committee’s complaint against the pre-petition lenders that alleged that transfers of certain cash, collateral and other rights were constructive fraudulent transfers. In doing so, Hon. Kevin Gross applied a “per se test”: A payment made or collateral granted on account of valid third-party antecedent
debt, while potentially preferential, is per se not a fraudulent transfer.
