Reorganization of mass tort cases usually results from a global resolution, binding upon all classes of stakeholders, and protecting all voluntary contributing parties. asbestos mass tort cases seek to emerge from bankruptcy cleansed of their current liabilities and protected from future claims by an injunction that “channels” such future tort claims to a trust established to resolve and pay claims, using procedures that are based on those in § (g).

    Chapter 11 § of the bankruptcy code provides an automatic stay at the moment the bankruptcy petition is filed. The automatic stay is an automatic injunction or statutory order that automatically stays or halts all actions by creditors subject to certain exceptions, in collection of debts from the debtor who files a bankruptcy protection. The unique challenges of mass tort cases have forced courts and parties to struggle in a legal framework not designed for those cases, creating inconsistent approaches in different cases. Partnerships, with their dual partner/partnership liability, also have presented special challenges not recognized in the Code.

However, we cannot give any assurances as to how quickly we will be able to resolve the case. • Finalizing the settlement, if approved, will take more than six months, at a minimum. Prior mass tort cases of this type have taken a year or longer in many instances. 3.   As explained in Section [3][c], although the asbestos mass tort bankruptcies were the impetus for the creation and use of bankruptcy trusts to administer and pay mass tort claims, the use of trusts has expanded in recent years, both to other types of personal injury claims, and to non-tort cases, such as construction defect claims.
