Creditor’s Trust created under a confirmed chapter 11 plan moved for partial summary judgment on its adversary proceeding seeking avoidance under 11 U.S.C. § 547(b) of three pre-petition transfers the debtor made to the defendant. The defendant argued that the transfers fell within the “ordinary course of business” and “new value” exceptions of 11 U.S.C. § 547(c) and were not subject to avoidance. Finding that the “ordinary course of business” exception applied even though the payments were technically late according to a new contract negotiated during the preference period, the court denied the motion for summary judgment and entered judgment for the defendant on its motion for summary judgment.
