Court Agrees that Bankruptcy Trustee’s Action is “Non-Core” in IndyMac Bancorp Case


Alfred Siegel v. Certain Underwriters at Lloyds (C.D. Cal.)

A California federal court agreed with BatesCarey LLP's arguments that a declaratory judgment action filed by IndyMac Bancorp's bankruptcy trustee was "non-core" to the bankruptcy. Therefore the court found that judicial efficiency supported withdrawing the reference to the bankruptcy court. After the reference was withdrawn, the trustee voluntarily dismissed the action.
