Second Circuit Rules Chapter 15 Foreign Debtor Must Have Domicile, Place of Business or Property in U.S.

In Drawbridge Special Opportunities Fund LP v. Barnet (In re Barnet), Case No. 13-612, 2013 Westlaw 6482499 (2d Cir. December 11, 2013), the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ruled that Bankruptcy Code Section 109(a) applies in a case under Chapter 15 of the Bankruptcy Code and requires that a foreign debtor have a domicile, a place of business or property within the United States.  This is likely to be a controversial decision.
