Hedge Fund Mason To Fight Lehman Bankruptcy Plan

Aug 11 2011 | 1:27pm ET

Another hedge fund has said it will formally object to Lehman Brother's bankruptcy exit plan, which was crafted to win the support of other hedge funds.

Mason Capital plans to file an objection to the settlement Lehman reached with its largest creditors, including Paulson & Co., in June, the Financial Times reports. In doing so, it will join a group of distressed-debt hedge funds, including Centerbridge Partners, in fighting to scupper to the proposed settlement, which would have begun paying creditors early next year.

A federal bankruptcy judge in New York will hear arguments on whether he should reject the plan next month.
