Memorandum Decision

Judge Eileen W. Hollowell (retired)
06/14/13 Val-Mid Associates, L.L.C (4:12-bk-20519-EWH) 06/14/13

Holding: The Amended Plan does not satisfy § 1129’s confirmation requirements. Dismissal of the case is not in the best interest of creditors. Appointment of a Chapter 11 trustee is not economically feasible. Accordingly, the case is converted to Chapter 7.

Under Advisement Decision Determining: 1) Membership Interests are no Longer Estate Property and 2) Order Lifting the Section 362(a) Stay is Lifted

Judge Daniel P. Collins
06/06/13 Strata Title LLC (2:12-bk-24242-DPC) 06/06/13

Holding: According to Schedule 1 of the Tempe Tower, LLC Operating Agreement, on February 24, 2013, the Debtor's membership interests in Tempe Tower changed from 50% to zero and Pure Country's membership interests changed from 50% to 100%. The Court has been asked to determine if Schedule 1 is enforceable. Under Arizona law, parties to an operating agreement can contract, as the parties here did in Schedule 1, for changes in membership interests between the parties.

05/23/13 Orca, LLC v. Gifford (4:12-ap-01757-EWH) 05/23/13

Holding: The location of the Building on the Lot and the Adjacent Lot will undoubtedly continue to bedevil the Debtor and the Plaintiffs, but the Debtor may not use his Chapter 13 case for a second bite at the apple regarding the effect and enforceability of the Settlement Agreement. Accordingly, the Motion for Summary Judgment is GRANTED

Holding: In an earlier ruling, the Court found Debtors liable to Plaintiff pursuant to Section 523(a)(4) as a result of the embezzlement by Mr. Campbell of funds invested by PMM Investments, LLC, and directed the Plaintiff to file an accounting of the debt due, taking into account any setoffs or payments already made on the underlying debt. Plaintiff shall have judgment against the Defendants in the principal amount of $737,006.25, with accrued interest and attorneys’ fees thereon, which shall be a nondischargeable debt pursuant to 11 U.S.C § 523(a)(4).
