Two judges retiring from SDNY bankruptcy court, replacements sought

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York announced this week that two of its judges will retire in 2014: Judge James Peck on Jan. 31, and Judge Allan Gropper on Oct. 3.

The Second Circuit Judicial Council is currently seeking applicants to fill both judge positions. The term of office is 14 years, with a current annual salary of about $181,000. Applications must be filed by Feb. 14, 2014.

Judge Peck has been on the bench at One Bowling Green since 2006. He presided over the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy, the remainder of which will be assigned to Judge Shelley Chapman by Jan. 31. As a mediator, Peck also recently played a critical role in the Chapter 11 of Residential Capital. Prior to becoming a judge, he was a partner at Schulte Roth & Zabel.

Judge Gropper, formerly a partner at White & Case, took the bench in 2000. Among other cases, he presided over Eastman Kodak Company’s recent Chapter 11, and this month issued a scathing ruling finding that Anadarko Petroleum may be responsible for billions of dollars in environmental clean-up costs and legal liabilities for Tronox, whose bankruptcy case he oversaw. – John Bringardner
