High Mesa Trustee Seeks Return of Alleged Preferences From Danos LLC
December 17, 2021, Southern District of Texas – Trustee Christopher R. Murray, for High Mesa, Inc. et al., brings a complaint against a family-owned energy service provider, Danos, LLC, to avoid and recover alleged preferential transfers worth $597,223.00 and disallow any claims held by Danos, LLC under Sections 547 and 550 of the Bankruptcy Code. The complaint alleges that High Mesa Holdings, LP and Danos “entered into trade relationship during the preference period, evidenced by invoices, email communications, master services agreement, and other documents.
Specifically, Murray claims that since Petro Operating Company, LP and High Mesa Holdings, LP allegedly made the said transfers during the ninety (90) days preference period on account of an antecedent debt, from funds in the Debtors’ bank accounts, they are transfers of an interest in property of the Debtors and therefore he is entitled to recover them as preferences for the benefit of the Debtors’ bankruptcy estate.
