Bankruptcy – Civil Practice – Jurisdiction – Core Proceedings – Contract – Arbitration (access required)

D&B Swine Farms, Inc. v. Murphy-Brown, L.L.C. In accordance with Stern v. Marshall, 564 U.S. ___, 131 S. Ct. 2594 (2011), the debtor’s adversary proceeding — based on state common law claims — is a non-core proceeding. Since two of the three contracts at issue include arbitration clauses, the claims for breach of those two contracts must be submitted to arbitration. All further proceedings in this case are stayed pending the conclusion of arbitration.
