“The prospect of conflicting motives arising during plan negotiations and later plan-related litigation is considerable. To promote fundamental fairness and transparency in these cases…any party seeking to participate in plan litigation [should] be required to provide comprehensive disclosure regarding their economic interests,” wrote Gerard Uzzi of firm White & Case, representing Ad Hoc in the court filing.
