On June 21, 2013 (the "Petition Date"), Mancha Development Company and Vince F. Eupierre filed voluntary petitions in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California (the "Bankruptcy Court") seeking relief under the provisions of Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code (the "Bankruptcy Code"). On December 4, 2013, the bankruptcy estate of Mancha was consolidated into the bankruptcy estate of Eupierre creating a single debtor and bankruptcy estate (the "Debtor"). The Debtor is represented by Winthrop Couchot, P.C.
On July 17, 2013, the United States Trustee appointed the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors (the "Committee") in the Debtors' bankruptcy case pursuant to Section 1102 of the Bankruptcy Code. The Committee consists of three members: Coca-Cola Company, LDC Terra Vista Vilage, LLC and LCAT Enterprises, Inc. The Committee has selected the law firm of Buchalter Nemer as its counsel. Bernard D Bollinger, Jr and Brian Harvey are the principal attorneys responsible for this engagement. This website was created to assist the Committee in providing information to creditors, as well as to solicit and receive comments from such creditors.
On February 17, 2015, the Bankruptcy Court entered an order approving the Debtor’s and Creditor Committee's Joint Disclosure Statement describing the terms of the proposed Debtor's and Creditor Committee's Amended Joint Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization (the "Joint Plan"). The hearing on confirmation of the Joint Plan is scheduled for March 17, 2015 at 1:30 p.m. The Committee supports confirmation of the proposed Joint Plan and encourages creditors to vote in support of the plan. A letter from the Committee Chair in support of the Joint Plan may be accessed here. The last day for creditors to return ballots to the Debtor’s counsel containing written acceptances or rejections of the Joint Plan is March 3, 2015. Ballots were mailed to all creditors. A duplicate ballot may be requested from counsel for the Debtor. Creditors may contact counsel for the Committee with any questions at the address and number listed below.
