Bankruptcy Court Sets September 22, 2009 as Deadline to File Proofs of Claims Against Lehman Brothers


On July 2, 2009 the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York issued an order establishing September 22, 2009 as the deadline for filing proofs of claims against Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. or any of its debtor affiliates (the “Order”). The Order provides that any holder of a claim against the Debtors who fails to file a proof of claim before the September 22, 2009 deadline will be forever barred from asserting such claim thereafter. The Order also establishes certain procedures that must be followed when filing proofs of claims, and sets forth additional requirements for claims based on either a derivative contract or an obligation that was guaranteed by one of the Debtors.
