Observations and Notes on Pacific Energy Bankruptcy Preference Adversary Proceedings:

August 30, 2010 – The complaints have an interesting feature.  With respect to  each debtor, there is a specific allegation of the asset value and the amount of liabilities on the petition date and this allegation is carried back to the the beginning of the preference period.  The following is a sample of this allegation:

As of the Petition Date, Debtor San Pedro Bay Pipeline Company had $4,710,182.60 in assets and $393,918,235.60 in liabilities. Upon information and belief, this balance of assets vs. liabilities was roughly the same during the Preference Period.

This is the type of allegation supporting insolvency that really should be included in all preference complaints.  While we are not fans of motions to dismiss due to lack of specificity in pleading, if there is a question of insolvency it might be worth it to file the motion to dismiss for failure to make specific allegations related to insolvency in order to flush out a weakness in the plaintiff’s case on this point.
