Bankruptcy case was transferred out of New York for not being debtor’s primary residences

Bronx Bankruptcy Attorney

Judge Gerber, a Southern District Bankruptcy Court Judge which is located in New York, found that a textbook publisher’s bankruptcy will not be heard in a New York even though all parties involved agreed to such venue, as reported by the New York Law Journal in a June 26th, 2012 article.

The judge found that after the company’s reorganization plan took effect the bankruptcy case will be transferred to a court closer to Boston. The judge reasoned that the bankruptcy did not belong in New York because the publishing company’s owner was a resident of Massachusetts.

The publishing company filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy reporting their assets to be roughly $2.68 billion and liabilities to be around $3.54 billion. Although the creditors agreed to the filing of the bankruptcy in New York but the bankruptcy judge could find no other reason to have jurisdiction over the case.
