In re 4218 Partners LLC (4218 Partners LLC v. Maguire Ft. Hamilton LLC), 2020 WL 477815 (2020)
Represented the secured lender in an adversary proceeding commenced by a commercial real estate chapter 11 case debtor. The debtor claimed that an $8,250,000 secured loan transaction was the result of economic duress. The debtor sought to both avoid the mortgage securing the underlying loan as well as subordinate the claims of the lender. The court granted our motion to dismiss the debtor’s claims of economic duress with prejudice, and dismissed the equitable subordination claims, finding that the debtor had failed to state a claim.
