BG Creates Law That NDA Obligations Are Not Discharged In Bankruptcy

Thursday, August 11, 2022 - 12:00am

Despite the prevalence of NDAs in a wide range of business and personal transactions, and recent high profile disputes involving their enforcement, before now there was no bankruptcy court decision squarely addressing the question of whether NDA obligations survive bankruptcy.

Key Points: 
  • Despite the prevalence of NDAs in a wide range of business and personal transactions, and recent high profile disputes involving their enforcement, before now there was no bankruptcy court decision squarely addressing the question of whether NDA obligations survive bankruptcy.
  • In this case, the Firm's client entered into an NDA with the Debtor before bankruptcy.
  • The Debtor contended the NDA could be ignored, and the Debtor could even publish facts and circumstances the disclosure of which was prohibited by the NDA, because, the Debtor argued, the "fresh start" of bankruptcy rendered the NDA obligations unenforceable.
  • The Court thus agreed the NDA obligations were not "claims," and because only "claims" are subject to being discharged in bankruptcy, the NDA obligations are not discharged in bankruptcy.
