12-1769 Steven P. Kartzman, as Chapter 7 Trustee v. Latoc, Inc., Opinion After Trial On Issue of Reasonably Equivalent Value, 4/29/2022

Opinion Summary as follows:
Following trial on the Chapter 7 Trustee’s avoidance action, and after remand from District Court on issue of reasonably equivalent value, the Bankruptcy Court found that Debtor served as a mere conduit or pass-through for a $2 million loan, the proceeds of which Debtor had immediately disbursed to non-debtor entities. Finding that Debtor received no value and no reasonably equivalent value for the loan, the Bankruptcy Court avoided the loan and Debtor’s repayment of approximately $600,000 on account of the loan (as well as conditionally expunging the lender’s proof of claim) under applicable sections of the Bankruptcy Code and New Jersey statutes.
