On August 13, 2014, a hearing was held before The Honorable Christopher S. Sontchi in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware in In re: Energy Future Holdings Corp., et al, 14-10979 (CSS). At that hearing, inter alia, Judge Sontchi was asked to rule on a discovery protocol and certain discovery disputes regarding a 2004 motion.
The Court was discussing the increasing number of discovery disputes it is being called upon to decide. As these discovery disputes become more commonplace in the bankruptcy arena, Polsinelli provides in chronological order a summary of Judge Sontchi's "flurry of opinions."
In a three-part series, Bankruptcy and Financial Restructuring Practice Co-Chair Chris Ward, Shareholder Todd Bartels and Associate Shanti Katona analyze separate discovery disputes from In re: Energy Future Holdings Corp., et al, and In re: Newstarcom Holdings, Inc. et al.
