United States Supreme Court Resolves Judicial Circuit Split Over Secured Creditor’s Right to Credit Bid in Cramdown Plans

In an 8-0 decision resolving a split between the Third and Seventh Circuit Courts of Appeals, the United States Supreme Court recently affirmed a secured creditor’s right to credit bid in a sale of its collateral pursuant to a cramdown plan. In RadLAX Gateway Hotel, LLC v. Amalgamated Bank, the Supreme Court upheld the Seventh Circuit’s ruling that section 1129(b)(2)(A)(iii) of the Bankruptcy Code, the so-called “indubitable equivalent prong” of the cramdown requirements for secured creditors, could not be used to justify confirming a plan which sold secured lenders’ collateral without allowing the lenders to credit bid.
