O’Melveny & Myers LLP has joined together with 28 other law firms to develop an opinion white paper that provides guidance to practitioners in their consideration of the application of the recent Marblegate and Caesars Entertainment decisions relating to Section 316(b) of the Trust Indenture Act of 1939. The white paper presents a set of general principles that can guide opinion givers until such time as the interpretive questions raised by these recent decisions are resolved through future judicial decisions and/or legislative actions.
