Mitchell Ayer's Article Cited in Fifth Circuit Case

In 2013, Mitchell Ayer published an article entitled, “Chapter 7 Common Issues in Oil and Gas Bankruptcy” for the 34th Energy & Mineral Law Institute.
Last year, the Fifth Circuit cited Mitchell’s paper in the case of In Re Heritage Consolidated, LLC. Using his article as part of its justification for its thinking, the Court of Appeals said, “under [the] circumstances [of the case], the service company would need to perfect its lien both ways, first as a subcontractor and second as a contractor” to secure a claim against all owners.
