If, as the song goes, breaking up is hard to do, 2015 was a challenging year for firms that dissolved, reconstituted, saw partners part ways, or otherwise experienced change. Blockbuster mergers and acquisitions were lacking. But, as was the case elsewhere, firms were active, and high lateral mobility, an industry trait for several years, remained on full display.

In Stanziale v. MILK072011 (In re Golden Guernsey Dairy LLC), Adv. Pro. No. 14-50953 (KG) (Bankr. D. Del. Sept. 21, 2015), U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Kevin Gross of the District of Delaware held that a Chapter 7 trustee stated a cause of action for breach of fiduciary duty against the parent company and manager of a debtor for causing the debtor to violate a state Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act statute and thereby incur liability. Gross rejected the defendants' arguments that the trustee lacked standing since the debtor suffered no harm because it was already insolvent prior to the WARN Act violations and that the trustee was actually suing on behalf of the general unsecured creditors of the debtor who themselves lacked standing to maintain derivative claims against the debtor.

Must a plaintiff accept a defendant's surrender? That is the question posed in Campbell-Ewald v. Gomez, No. 14-857—indeed, expressly posed by an exasperated Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. at oral argument, when he upbraided the lead plaintiffs lawyer: "You won't take 'yes' for an answer." In this case, the U.S. Supreme Court will determine whether a defendant's offer to provide complete relief to the named representative of a proposed class action moots both the representative's individual claim and the claim of the proposed class. This case may significantly impact the landscape of future class-action litigation by determining whether a defendant may stifle putative class claims by "picking-off" the named plaintiff.
