In the recent case of RadLAX Gateway Hotel, LLC v. Amalgamated Bank, 2012 WL 1912197 (May 29, 2012), the Supreme Court in a unanimous 8-0 opinion, delivered by Justice Scalia, held that the Bankruptcy Code statutory scheme mandates that secured creditors must be allowed to credit-bid in 363 sales of assets where the sale is incorporated into a plan of reorganization. While many in the finance and bankruptcy space view the right of a secured creditor to credit-bid as sacrosanct and uncontroversial, several recent circuit court opinions suggested that credit-bidding was not required for a 363 sale in connection with a plan of reorganization so long as the debtor provided such creditor alternatively with the "indubitable equivalent" of its claim. The Supreme Court resolved any uncertainty in favor of the right of a secured creditor to credit-bid.
