Schafer and Weiner, PLLC Successfully Defends Turnover Action

July, 2018

Schafer and Weiner represents a leading towing and recovery company in downriver Detroit.  A chapter 11 debtor filed an adversary proceeding against the tow company claiming ownership in, and seeking immediate turnover of, vehicles and other property.  Jeffery Sattler successfully defended the action by asserting possessory lien rights under the Michigan Vehicle Code and seeking payment of post-petition storage fees (i.e., administrative expenses).  With Schafer and Weiner’s help, the adversary proceeding was dismissed and the debtor paid administrative expenses owing to the tow company.
