In re: Dow Corning Corp., 04-1608
There is a presumption that default interest should be paid to unsecured claim holders in a solvent debtor bankruptcy case. Further, unsecured creditors can collect attorneys' fees, costs and expenses from solvent debtors where they are permitted to do so by the terms of their contract and applicable non-bankruptcy law.
