Trump Entertainment Resorts, Inc. Targets New Batch for Clawback Actions
December 8, 2016, Delaware – The Trump Entertainment Resorts Inc. bankruptcy trustee, Nathan A. Schultz launched several lawsuits last month seeking to clawback payments made before it filed for Chapter 11 protection to entities that include Unite Here Health, Aramark Uniform and Career Apparel, LLC and utility provider Atlantic City Electric Co. The trustee is allegedly seeking to recover roughly $3 million from both Atlantic City Electric and Unite Here Health and comparatively a smaller amount of $13,000 from Aramark Uniform & Career Apparel LLC. The trustee already commenced his clawback campaign way back in September 2016, with filing approximately 100 lawsuits to recover more than $14 million. According to the court records, many of those cases have been resolved as well.
Trump Entertainment filed for Chapter 11 protection for the second time in five years in 2014. The trustee is represented by Natasha M. Songonuga of Gibbons PC, and Joseph L. Steinfeld, Jr. and Edward E. Neiger of ASK LLP. The adversary cases are Schultz v. Unite Here Health, case number 1:16-ap-51544, Schultz v. Aramark Uniform & Career Apparel LLC, case number 1:16-ap-51545, and Schultz v. Atlantic City Electric Co., case number 1:16-ap-51546, all in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware.
