Supreme Court's Purdue Pharma Ruling and the Future of Nonconsensual Releases

July 2, 2024 | Virtual

The Supreme Court on June 27 ruled in the case of Harrington v. Purdue Pharma L.P. that the Bankruptcy Code does not authorize a release and injunction that, as part of a plan of reorganization under chapter 11, effectively seek to discharge claims against a nondebtor without the consent of the affected claimants. Join this panel of experts as they examine the case and decision, and what it may mean for chapter 11 practice going forward involving nonconsensual third-party releases.
