The United States Supreme Court issued its decision in the RadLAX Gateway Hotel v. Amalgamated Bank case on May 29, 2012, closing the door on a debtorʼs end-around a secured creditorʼs right to credit bid.1 In a unanimous decision delivered by Justice Scalia, the Supreme Court found its answer to be “an easy case,” rejecting recent decisions allowing a debtor to sell secured property free and clear of all liens without providing for the secured partyʼs credit bid rights when the sale was pursuant to a plan of reorganization.2 The decision provides secured creditors with predictability and consistency whether its collateral is being sold pursuant to a proposed plan or a sale during the bankruptcy case.
