(W.D. Ky. Jan. 8, 2016)
The district court grants the defendants’ motion to withdraw the reference to the bankruptcy court. The debtor filed this action prior to filing its bankruptcy petition. The debtor then asserted the same claims against the defendant in an adversary proceeding. The court holds that there is good cause for withdrawal of the reference because of the overlapping facts, parties, issues, and requested relief. Opinion below.
