Anti-Lothian Bankruptcy Fraud Committee v. Lothian Oil, Inc., 531 F. App'x 428 (5th Cir. 2013)

Represented a group of Chapter 11 debtors in a post-confirmation challenge to the debtors' plan of reorganization brought in New York state court. Quickly obtained a bankruptcy-court injunction of the state-court litigation, removed the matter to federal court, and obtained a transfer of venue to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Texas. Successfully prosecuted claims for more than $2 million in bankruptcy-court sanctions against plaintiffs and plaintiffs' counsel related to their violation of the bankruptcy-court injunction and obtained a complete reinstatement of the bankruptcy-court injunction and sanctions in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit following a partial reversal by the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas.
