United States District Court, Southern District of New York
March 17, 2003
JPMORGAN CHASE BANK, PLAINTIFF,
GREEN COUNTY ENERGY, LLC, ET AL., DEFENDANTS. JPMORGAN CHASE BANK, PLAINTIFF, V. QUACHITA POWER, LLC, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Lewis A. Kaplan, District Judge
These actions concededly fall within the jurisdiction of the Bankruptcy Court. Plaintiffs' contention that this Court nevertheless should retain them because withdrawal of the reference would be appropriate if the cases had been brought in the Bankruptcy Courtin the first instance is unpersuasive in the current posture of the cases.
Accordingly, defendants' motion to refer these actions to the Bankruptcy Court for this District is granted. The Bankruptcy Judge remains free to recommend withdrawal of the reference should this later prove appropriate.
