In re Filenes Basement LLC

Ruling: 
Landlord's rent and abandonment claims were subject to a 15 percent cap but its mechanic's lien claim was not.
Issue: 
Whether the "15 percent" referred to in § 502(b)(6)(A) refers to 15 percent of the remaining term of the lease or 15 percent of the remaining rent due under the lease and whether the limitation on lease termination damages in § 502(b)(6) encompasses the creditor lessor's claims for removal of abandoned furniture and fixtures and for satisfaction of a mechanic's lien?
