Caesars Gets Another Month

Caesars Entertainment Operating Company (CEOC) appealed Judge Goldgar’s decision to US District Court (decisions in a bankruptcy court get appealed to the District Court). Judge Robert Gettleman gave Caesars until October 5th; Judge Gettleman will hold a hearing in Chicago then. As reported in the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Judge Gettleman “…warned CEOC that it faced an ‘uphill’ fight.”

The pause does give time for the two sides to negotiate. That said, the junior creditors who filed $11 billion in claims against Caesars appear unwilling to settle for what Caesars has offered. The claims relate to allegations that Caesars deliberately reorganized to create a “good” Caesars and a “bad” Caesars. A court appointed examiner has already said that the junior creditors are likely to prevail.
