Supreme Court sides with truck drivers over bankruptcy case

Truck drivers in New Jersey won a Supreme Court victory Wednesday after the justices ruled that bankruptcy courts can’t allow certain creditors to jump ahead in the repayment line while leaving others empty handed. The trucking company, Jevic Holding Corp., used a technique called “structured dismissal” to make sure lawyers who worked on its Chapter 11 case were paid when truck drivers with the same priority didn’t.
