In re Bullitt Utilities, Inc.

(Bankr. W.D. Ky. Sep. 16, 2016)

The court grants the trustee’s motion to employ the law firm as special counsel to pursue claims against certain third parties on behalf of the estate. The law firm had represented two of the largest creditors of the estate in connection with commencing the involuntary chapter 7 against the debtor. The court finds that there is no conflict in the representation, in part because the scope of the proposed engagement—seeking recovery of amounts owed to the estate—was aligned with the interests of the creditors, and in part because the creditors confirmed that the law firm no longer represented them. Opinion below.

Judge: Lloyd

Trustee: Robert W. Keats

Special Counsel: Bingham, Greenbaum, Doll, LLP
