Judge Deals Caesars Bankruptcy Possible Fatal Blow

Bloomberg reported a judge dealt Caesars Entertainment’s bankruptcy reorganization a possible fatal blow in ruling that the company violated federal law when it shuffled assets and refinanced debt as part of an alleged scheme to protect itself from lower-ranking creditors.

Bloomberg said further the ruling came in a related lawsuit in Manhattan on the same day that the casino company sought bankruptcy protection last week in Chicago for its Caesars Entertainment Operating unit. According to Bloomberg , U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin rebuffed an attempt by the unit to dismiss the suit, which had been filed by noteholders.
