From Krieg DeVault LLP:
In Whirlpool Corp. v. Wells Fargo Bank, National Association (In re hhgregg, Inc.), (7th Cir. Feb. 11. 2020), the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit held that the current enactment of the United States Bankruptcy Code (the “Bankruptcy Code”), specifically 11 U.S.C. §546(c), expressly subordinates a seller’s reclamation claim to the prior rights of a lienholder. This is good news for secured lenders.
