Schafer and Weiner Defeats IRS

October, 2019

In the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, John Stockdale, Jr. successfully argued against the Internal Revenue Service’s Motion for an Accounting, Disgorgement and Other Relief in a dismissed Chapter 11 case.  Consistent with the papers prepared and filed by Schafer and Weiner, the Court concluded that the IRS was not entitled to an accounting, disgorgement or other relief under the circumstances of the case where (i) the IRS sought and obtained dismissal of the case and (ii) no such request for relief was pending on the dismissal date.  A copy of the opinion can be obtained here.
