In re Peabody Energy Corporation, et al., Case No. 16-42529 (BSS) Jointly Administered
United States Bankruptcy Court, Eastern District of Missouri
ATTENTION EMPLOYEES - Please read the following related to filing a Proof of Claim Form: Peabody Chapter 11 Claims Process Update
General Information:

On April 13, 2016, each of the 153 Debtors filed voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code (the "Bankruptcy Code"). The 153 cases (collectively, the "Bankruptcy Cases") are jointly administered before the Honorable Judge Barry S. Schermer under Case No. 16-42529 in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Missouri (the "Bankruptcy Court"). The Second Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization was confirmed on March 17, 2017 by the Court, and was declared effective on April 3, 2017.

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 April 13, 2016 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.
