The High Court in Department of Corrections v Decmil Construction NZ Ltd NZHC 2976 has granted leave for arbitration to proceed between the Department of Corrections and an insolvent construction company. However, the Appeal Court agreed with the District Court Judge, holding that the transfers were not "for value". The Bankruptcy Code defines "value" as property or the satisfaction of a right to payment or remedy. The Court affirmed that for SIPA liquidations, investors cannot have property rights in fictious profits, only in their principal investment. Moreover, the transfer of those fictious profits does not satisfy a right to payment as only the return of the principal investment or the payment of an investor's net equity could satisfy the right. Key proposals include permitting the electronic filing or…

2021 Federal And State Law Update

California’s Office of Administrative Law approved California Division of Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (Cal/OSHA) proposed emergency regulations on COVID-19 prevention on November 30, 2020. The Emergency Temporary Standards took effect immediately and require California employers to implement strict workplace safety measures to reduce the risk and transmission of COVID-19. Emergency regulations generally remain in effect for 180 days unless the OAL approves a re-adoption of the regulations during that time period. Employers should consult legal counsel as they consider and prepare to implement mandatory, as well as voluntary, vaccine programs, and any such program should be conveyed in a clear written personnel policy. The rollout of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines in the United States has triggered extensive discussion around the law concerning mandatory vaccine policies in the workplace.

So far, the court has dealt with four cases, two of which were heard by a single judge and completed within just a few weeks. A three-judge panel recently issued a judgment in the third case, whilst the fourth case remains ongoing, with an interim ruling given last week. The court notes that this compares favorably to the usual 3.5 year period from commencement to completion for commercial cases, citing Baker McKenzie's The Year Ahead 2020. The NCC expects its workload to increase as more contracts include clauses designating NCC as the forum for disputes. In this case, the court was no doubt assisted by the fact that the proposed change was designed to achieve the same ultimate outcome of the reorganisation, namely to provide the shareholders with shares in the new holding company with a nominal value of US$0.01 each. And it is worth noting that the on-going Covid-19…

Under this plan, an integrated court case management system is being implemented to streamline and standardize electronic court processes across different levels of courts. This will start with the District and Summons Courts of the Magistrates' Courts, where use of iCMS will initially be voluntary. Key proposals include permitting the electronic filing or sending of documents, the serving of documents between parties electronically and the use of digital and other electronic signatures for court-related documents. The courts can achieve this in various ways, including by taking payments to the company into account when calculating a shareholder’s loss, preventing a shareholder from claiming until the company has had a chance to do so, or joining a shareholder and company into the same legal proceedings. In his view, the rule is not a novelty of company law; rather, it is a way of guarding against double recovery. Mandatory Use of Rupiah in…
