Conference call with Judge Judith Fitzgerald – a retired U.S. Bankruptcy Judge who sat by designation in the District of Delaware – about the state of Third Circuit and Delaware law on postpetition interest rates and its implications for the Energy Future Holdings dispute. Judge Fitzgerald, who is currently a professor at Indiana Tech Law School and of counsel at Tucker Arensberg, P.C., has particular familiarity with postpetition interest issues from her experience overseeing the chapter 11 cases of W.R. Grace & Co., in which Judge Fitzgerald issued a key ruling denying certain creditors’ requests for allowance of postpetition interest at the default contract rate – a ruling affirmed by the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware on appeal.
