Kushnick, New York, NY, for Defendant CB Richard Ellis Real Estate Services, Inc.
Carignan, Pepper Hamilton LLP, Wilmington, DE, Beverly A. n/k/a CB Richard Ellis Real Estate Services, Inc.).
The First Amended Complaint alleges the following: In the fall of 1999, Global Center retained Insignia to locate lease space in New York City for a new data center.
However, there is no danger of a bankruptcy court's jurisdiction extending on ad infinitum when the claims arose pre-petition and were expressly implicated in the Plan. § 157, no provision of a plan or an agreement between the parties is sufficient to establish jurisdiction. The motion to dismiss the complaint is pursuant to Rule 12(b)(1) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, made applicable to this proceeding by Rule 7012 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure, arguing that the Court lacks subject matter jurisdiction over this proceeding. The plaintiff asserts that the Court has jurisdiction over the defendants because the dispute at issue in this case is "related to a case under title 11." 28 U.
