In Re: U.S. Wireless Data, Inc., No. 063449
Order of U.S. Bankruptcy Court expunging an “unsecured claim” filed by appellant on the ground that it sought additional compensation for a previously resolved “cure claim” is affirmed where: 1) appellant’s argument that the claim was cured without proper notice of consequences was without merit; 2) appellant’s contention that, having failed to raise a timely challenge to the cure amount, it could pursue additional relief by reasserting its claim as a general unsecured obligation of the debtor was without merit; and 3) the “best interests of creditors” test, 11 U.S.C. section 1129(a)(7) afforded appellant no relief in this case.

Bonime v. Avaya, Inc., No. 071136
In a putative class action alleging violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), dismissal of the complaint is affirmed where: 1) because the TCPA does not specifically authorize recovery of statutory damages in a class action, state courts have held that C.P.L.R. 901(b) bars class actions for statutory damages under the TCPA; and 2) federal courts should apply C.P.L.R. 16 901(b) to putative New York class actions brought for alleged TCPA violations
