In Re: Coudert Brothers LLP, No. 10-2723 (2d Cir. 2012)Annotate this Case
Statek appealed from an order of the district court affirming the order of the bankruptcy court, disallowing its claim against the bankruptcy estate of Coudert and affirming the denial of Statek's motion to reconsider the bankruptcy court's order. The court held that the bankruptcy court should have applied the choice of law rules of the State of Connecticut, where Statek's pre-bankruptcy action against Coudert had been commenced, and not the choice of law rules of New York State, where the bankruptcy court was located. Accordingly, the court vacated the judgment and remanded.
