2(“General Order #M-242”) seeking authority to file in redacted form and under seal the VerifiedStatement of White & Case LLP (“White & Case”) pursuant to Bankruptcy Rule 2019 (the“2019 Statement”). In support of the Motion, the Chrysler Non-TARP Lenders respectfully stateas follows:
PRELIMINARY STATEMENT
While the present case is unusual in many ways, perhaps the most extraordinary isthe unprecedented involvement of the United States government. Never before has the Presidentof the United States announced a chapter 11 filing in a national address. Even more remarkably,the President singled out creditors who did not agree to the government’s intentions regardingChrysler, which includes paying billions of dollars to unsecured creditors while paying first-liensecured creditors less than thirty cents on the dollar. The President publicly chastised thesesecured creditors for having the temerity to enforce their constitutional rights in this court of law,branding them as “speculators,” making clear that “I don’t stand with them.” The President’sremarks announcing the bankruptcy filing are merely the most public in a series of stepsundertaken by the current administration to subvert the rule of law by forcing Chryslerstakeholders to agree to a
sub rosa
plan of reorganization which wholly ignores time honoredbankruptcy principles.The government now comes before this Court and trumpets the fact that many of Chrysler’s lenders have succumbed to these coercive tactics. Indeed, a decreasing number of creditors remain willing to ask this Court for fair treatment under the law. The pressure on theChrysler Non-TARP Lenders grows by the hour. For this reason, a number of lenders havesought representation in this case, but only on the condition that their identity not be disclosedpublicly. Accordingly, the Chrysler Non-TARP Lenders seek an order allowing White & Case

3to file its 2019 statement under seal, so that only the Court will know the identity of the ChryslerNon-TARP Lenders. Denial of this relief will force several of these lenders to surrender theirlegal rights and agree to the government’s illegal plan. Those lenders that continue to seek toenforce their legal rights will be subjected to threats to their reputations and businesses, publicattack, and threats to their safety. This cannot be allowed. Under these circumstances, theMotion should be granted.
