In re Metro Affiliates, Inc., Case No. 13-13591 (Jointly Administered)
United States Bankruptcy Court, Southern District of New York (http://www.nysb.uscourts.gov)
General Information:

On November 4, 2013 each of the forty Debtors (the "Debtors") filed voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code (the "Bankruptcy Code"). The forty cases (collectively the "Bankruptcy Cases") are jointly administered under Case No. 13-13591 before the Honorable Sean H. Lane in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York.

On June 11, 2014, the Court entered its Findings of Fact, Conclusions of Law, and Order Confirming the First Amended Joint Chapter 11 Plan of Liquidation for Metro Affiliates, Inc. and its Affiliated Debtors Proposed by the Debtors and the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors. The Effective Date of the Plan occurred on June 30, 2014.

Pursuant to the Bankruptcy Code (specifically including, but not limited to, 11 U.S.C. § 362), a debtor is afforded certain protection against its creditors; the Bankruptcy Code prohibits creditors from taking certain actions related to debts that may have been owing prior to the commencement of the Bankruptcy Cases. If you believe that you might be a creditor of the Debtors based upon debts arising prior to November 4, 2013 and you are considering taking action based upon your status as a creditor, you may wish to seek legal advice. The staff of the Clerk of the Bankruptcy Court and the staff of Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC are not permitted to give legal advice.
