Bulldog Investors Sues To Prevent “Claw Back” Lawsuits Against Public Stockholders of Bankrupt SPAC

Covered by GlobeNewsWire

Bulldog Investors, LLP announced that it has filed a lawsuit against the bankruptcy trustee for Industrial Human Capital, Inc., a SPAC (ticker: AXH), to declare that public stockholders are not required to return funds previously held in trust and properly distributed to stockholders after the redemption of the SPAC’s Class A common stock. In letters to stockholders, the bankruptcy trustee has stated an intent to pursue such funds to satisfy claims of creditors of the SPAC. The lawsuit seeks a judgment from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Florida declaring that the trust fund was never subject to creditor claims and, in any event, public stockholders are protected by law from “claw back” lawsuits.
