In re W.R. Grace & Co.

Pre 2005-Act: 
Pre 2005-Act
Ruling: 
71 asbestos-related claims filed by single law firm denied as based on client authorizations that were either undated or dated after bar date.
Procedural posture: 
Debtors moved for an order disallowing and expunging 71 property damage claims signed by a named law firm on purported behalf of various clients and filed thereafter on the ground that the firm had failed to establish that it had authority, prior to the bar date, to file such claims. At issue was whether the claims were executed by each client's "authorized agent" within the meaning of Fed. R. Bankr. P. 3001(b).
