The Supreme Court on Feb. 20 heard oral argument in Mission Product Holdings Inc. v. Tempnology, LLC (17-1657). The case centers on whether, under Section 365 of the Bankruptcy Code, a debtor-licensor’s “rejection” of a license agreement—which “constitutes a breach of such contract,” 11 U.S.C. § 365(g)—terminates rights of the licensee that would survive the licensor’s breach under applicable non-bankruptcy law.
ABI's Emerging Industries and Technologies Committee has assembled a panel of leading experts to help you unpack the arguments that were made on Feb. 20, examine the case and predict how the Supreme Court might decide on the issue later in the term.
