Peter Kiewit Sons', Inc. v. Wall Street Equity Group, Inc. et al
ORDER dismissing Wall Street Private Equity Group, Inc's 327 Suggestion of Bankruptcy without prejudice. Ordered by Judge John M. Gerrard. (MKR)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
PETER KIEWIT SONS', INC.,
WALL STREET EQUITY GROUP,
INC., WALL STREET GROUP OF
COMPANIES, INC., SHEPHERD
FRIEDMAN and STEVEN S. WEST,
This matter is before the Court on the Suggestion of Bankruptcy filed
by Wall Street Private Equity Group, Inc. (filing 327). The Court finds that
no action is required based upon the suggestion of bankruptcy, and it will be
dismissed without prejudice.
The automatic stay provision of the Bankruptcy Code, 11 U.S.C. §
362(a), provides that a bankruptcy petition operates as a stay to the
commencement or continuation of judicial proceedings "against the debtor"
and proceedings against "property of the [bankruptcy] estate." Similarly,
NEGenR 1.5 requires referral of pending proceedings to the United States
Bankruptcy Court upon the filing of a suggestion in bankruptcy that "a party
to a civil case is a debtor in a bankruptcy case."
The debtor, Wall Street Private Equity Group, is not a party to these
proceedings, nor are these proceedings currently directed "against the debtor"
in any way. Nor is there any reason to believe that, at this time, these
proceedings involve property of the debtor's bankruptcy estate. Neither 11
U.S.C. § 362(a) nor NEGenR 1.5 are implicated by this debtor's bankruptcy.
In short, the debtor's suggestion of bankruptcy is, at this time, immaterial to
Therefore, the Court will dismiss the suggestion of bankruptcy, without
prejudice to the debtor's ability to assert the automatic stay against any
action that might be taken in the future against the debtor or property of the
debtor's estate, should such action be taken and should the bankruptcy
proceedings still be ongoing at that time.
IT IS ORDERED:
Wall Street Private Equity Group, Inc.'s, Suggestion
Bankruptcy (filing 327) is dismissed without prejudice.
Dated this 31st day of October, 2012.
