Garden City, NY (PRWEB) January 26, 2007
Newsday ran an article in its Business Section reporting on the amendments to the United States Bankruptcy Laws one year after their effective date, (They're Filing In...).
Leading New York bankruptcy attorney Stuart P. Gelberg was quoted in the article for his insight into the amendments and their effect on the people needing bankruptcy relief. Less than one month later, on November 10, 2006 Newsday ran a story on a certain celebrity chef's restaurants problems with its landlord (Eviction A Recipe...). Stuart P. Gelberg was again quoted in the story, this time as the attorney for the landlord, who successfully litigated on behalf of the landlord and obtained a Court order directing the restaurant to surrender possession to the landlord.
The case involving Chef Ruggiero (In re: UBR Properties d/b/a Uncle Bacala's, chapter 11 case number 06-70904-sb, Eastern District of New York) was especially interesting due to the change in the bankruptcy laws effective October 17, 2005 and the impact of one of those changes on the debtor's right to assume its' lease with the landlord. The Court concluded that the debtor could not assume its' lease and ordered the debtor to surrender the leased property to the landlord, a complete victory for the landlord, his client.
