In two recent decisions, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit and the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania held that a debtor may prohibit secured creditors from credit bidding their debt at a sale of their collateral conducted under a plan of reorganization, provided that the plan of reorganization otherwise meets the "fair and equitable" standard articulated in section 1129(b)(2)(A) of the Bankruptcy Code (governing cramdown) with respect to such secured creditors.
