In re: Net Pay Solutions — bankruptcy — affirmance — Hardiman
The Third Circuit today upheld a district court’s rulings in a bankruptcy case denying the debtor’s motions to avoid five preferential transfers. The debtor made five tax payments for its clients the day before it went out of business, and it sought to recover the funds in bankruptcy, but the court held that four were minimal as to each creditor and the fifth did not involve the debtor’s property because it was only held in trust.
Joining Hardiman was Smith; Sloviter had been on the panel before she assumed inactive status. Arguing counsel were Markian Slobodian as debtor’s trustee and Ivan Dale for the government.
