Donald J. Detweiler, a partner in the Corporate Restructuring and Bankruptcy Practice Group of Pepper Hamilton, was quoted in the November 26, 2019 Law360 article, "Schramm's Ch. 7 Conversion Still On Hold Despite Changes."
Committee attorney Donald J. Detweiler of Pepper Hamilton LLP said Tuesday's hearing was scheduled as a status conference and his clients were unaware the amended conversion order had been filed until they saw a hearing agenda earlier this week.
It is inappropriate at this time to continue argument on the conversion motion, Detweiler said, because the court has made its ruling that the appeal process must be completed.
"We don't think it's appropriate to get into the merits as it's not a hearing to get into the full merits," he said, adding that the committee has made its position abundantly clear in its papers and in arguments made before the court at the Oct. 22 hearing.
