Troutman Bros. Grand Finale (I)
Highest Court Sixth Circuit
Year Ended 2007
Plaintiffs Bankruptcy Trustee(s)
Defendants Business Entity of Artist(s)
Other Troutman, Larry
Troutman, Roger
Zapp
Short Description These documents contain confusing and incredibly drawn-out bankruptcy litigation involving the life insurance of Roger and Larry Troutman. Roger was the former lead singer and guitarist for Zapp (he had a solo career too), and Larry was his brother, also in the band, who murdered Roger, also his business partner, in a purportedly unexplained murder-suicide. Their company had taken out life insurance policies for the brothers not too long before they died, but during bankruptcy proceedings the company failed to disclose this information. After the re-organized business claimed the policy distributions, creditors of the original entity sued for the post-reorganization distributions. After many opinions, back and forth, the court held the insurance policy belonged to the pre-bankruptcy company, and thus its creditors, and the bankruptcy trustee then brought suit against the reorganized entity to return the money paid. The court allowed some of the claims to proceed. Sheesh. - LSW
