An unexpected wrinkle put in the Heller Ehrman's bankruptcy case

An unexpected wrinkle was put in the Heller Ehrman's bankruptcy case because of the limited authority of bankruptcy courts to decide the fate of certain claims after the U.S. Supreme Court’s Anna Nicole Smith decision. 16 law firms are defending themselves against Heller estate’s Jewel claims over fees from unfinished business and have requested the federal bankruptcy judge to move the argument to federal district court.

These firm include Arnold & Porter, Cooley,Hogan Lovells , representing Heller liquidation plan administrator Michael Burkart, hopes for an early settlement from the other 8 firms as well.
