I.

PRELIMINARY STATEMENT

Trustee by this Motion to Approve Settlement seek the Courts approval of a compromise
of the State of Texass claims against the bankruptcy estate pursuant to Rule 9019 of the Rules of
Bankruptcy Procedure (Rule 9019). Texas, through an underlying enforcement action in
Travis County District Court, has asserted claims against the Debtors bankruptcy estate under
Texas law which stem from the Debtors violations of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices
Consumer Protection Act, TEX. BUS. & COM. CODE 17.46, et seq. (the DTPA). The Trustee
and Texas have reached a settlement of Texass DTPA claims against the bankruptcy estate
which will completely resolve the enforcement action with a global settlement amongst all

1334. This is a core proceeding pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 157(b). Venue is proper pursuant to 28

FACTUAL BACKGROUND

1SolTech, Inc. (the Debtor) is a company that was founded in Farmers Branch,

Texas in 2008 by Sandra Sandy Fardi and Hossein Zak Fardi which manufactured and sold
solar panels for residential and commercial use. At all relevant times to the events described
herein, the Debtors management consisted solely of Zak Fardi, Sandy Fardi and Ali Enrique
Razavi.
A.

State of Texas Initiates a Consumer Protection Enforcement Action Against the


Debtor.
3.

On September 17, 2013, the State of Texas, acting by and through the Office of

the Texas Attorney General, filed an enforcement action against the Debtor and its owners and
directorsSandy Fardi, Zak Fardi, and Ali Enrique Razavi 1 (collectively, the Defendants)
in State of Texas v. 1SolTech, Inc., et al., Case No. D-1-GV-13-001059, in the 261st District
Court of Travis County, Texas (the Enforcement Action), alleging causes of action for
multiple violations of the DTPA based on the Debtors sale of solar panels which were falsely
labeled as Made in the U.S.A. and falsely labeled as certified to meet safety and performance
standard UL 1703 by the Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory Intertek (the 2nd
Generation Panels). By the Enforcement Action, the State of Texas seeks restitution for all

Ali Enrique Razavi was added as a Defendant on July 14, 2014.

harmed consumers estimated to be over six million dollars, civil penalties for each violation of
the DTPA which allows for a penalty of up to $20,000 per violation with no cap, as well as
attorneys fees and costs under the Texas Government Code.
B.

The Debtor Initiates a Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Case.


4.

On October 13, 2014, the Debtor initiated the above-styled and numbered case by

filing a petition for relief under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code (the Bankruptcy Case).
5.

Accordingly, the State of Texas filed a proof of claim (Claim #32) in the

Bankruptcy Case in an unliquidated amount for restitution, civil fines and penalties, and
attorneys fees (the Texas Proof of Claim).
C.

A Chapter 11 Trustee is Appointed and the Case is Converted to Chapter 7.


6.

On January 21, 2015, the United States Trustee filed a motion to convert the

Bankruptcy Case to one under Chapter 7, or in the alternative to appoint a Chapter 11 Trustee
[Dkt. 87]. On April 14, 2015, the Court entered an Agreed Order granting the United States
Trustees motion in-part and ordering that a Chapter 11 Trustee be appointed [Dkt. 155].
Pursuant to the Agreed Order, Mark A. Weisbart (the Trustee) was notified and indicated his
acceptance of his selection and appointment as the Chapter 11 Trustee [Dkt. 156].
7.

Accordingly, on April 23, 2015, the United States Trustee filed a motion for

approval of the Trustees appointment [Dkt. 162].

That same day, the Trustee filed an

application for the estate to engage himself and his law firm to serve as attorneys for the Trustee
[Dkt. 163].
8.

Also on April 23, 2015, the Trustee filed a motion to convert the Debtors Chapter

11 Bankruptcy Case to a case under chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code [Dkt. 164].

On April 29, 2015, the Court entered an order granting the Trustees application

to engage Mr. Weisbart and his law firm to serve as attorneys for the Trustee [Dkt. 176]. Also
on April 29, 2015, the Court entered an Order granting the United States Trustees application to
approve Mr. Weisbarts appointment as Trustee [Dkt. 177].
10.

On April 30, 2015, the Court entered an Order granting the Trustees motion to

convert the case to one under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code [Dkt. 179].
D.

The Parties Reach a Settlement of the Enforcement Action and Desire Court Approval
Pursuant to Rule 9019.
11.

Subsequently, representatives for the State of Texas engaged in arms-length

negotiations with the Trustee regarding the Parties respective rights, obligations and liability,
and as a result, the Parties desire to enter into a settlement consisting of an Agreed Final
Judgment and Permanent Injunction (the Settlement Agreement) to be entered in the
Enforcement Action which will completely resolve all liability by and between the Debtors
bankruptcy estate and the State of Texas as part of a global settlement that includes all
Defendants.
12.

Specifically, the Settlement Agreement provides for the following relief against

the bankruptcy estate: (a) injunctive relief precluding the Debtor from future violations of the
DTPA; (b) notice to be provided by the bankruptcy estate to purchasers of the Debtors 2nd
Generation Panels of the bankruptcy case and certain information pertaining to the uncertified
panels; (c) restitution for harmed consumers in the amount of $2,754,322.98 allocated amongst
designated purchasers of the uncertified 2nd Generation Panels (the Restitution Amount); (d)
civil penalties in the amount of $5,000,000.00 (the Civil Penalties Amount); and (e)
attorneys fees incurred in obtaining the award of civil penalties in the amount of $150,000.00
(the Civil Penalties Attorneys Fees) (collectively, the Restitution Amount, Civil Penalties

Amount and the Civil Penalties Attorneys Fees are referred to herein as the Settlement
Amount). A true and correct copy of the Agreed Final Judgment and Permanent Injunction for
which approval is sought is attached hereto as Exhibit A and incorporated by reference as
though fully set forth herein.
13.

The State of Texas shall have an allowed unsecured claim in the Settlement

Amount in the Bankruptcy Case and that such allowed claim will supersede the Texas Proof of
Claim previously filed. The Parties further agree that the Civil Penalties Amount and the Civil
Penalties Attorneys Fees allocated thereto constitute a fine or penalty pursuant to 11 U.S.C.
726(a)(4). Additionally, the Parties agree that the Restitution Amount shall constitute an allowed
unsecured claim but that, to the extent any distribution is made to unsecured creditors in the
Bankruptcy Case, the Trustee expressly reserves the right to challenge the treatment of the
Restitution Amount pursuant to 11 U.S.C. 726 in the Bankruptcy Case.
14.

Trial in the Enforcement Action was set for October 5, 2015; however, in light of

the proposed compromise, the parties to the Enforcement Action passed the October 5, 2015
setting by agreement in order to obtain the Courts approval of the Settlement Agreement.
Accordingly, the Trustee respectfully submits that the settlement represents a fair and equitable
resolution of the Enforcement Action and should be approved as submitted to the Court.

15.

RELIEF REQUESTED

Settlements and compromises are a normal part of the process of

reorganization. Protective Comm. of Stockholder of TMT Trailer Ferry, Inc. v. Anderson (In re
TMT Trailer Ferry, Inc.), 390 U.S. 414, 424 (1968), on remand, TMT Trailer Ferry, Inc. v.
Kirkland, 471 F.2d 10 (5th Cir. 1972). The Court has the discretionary authority to approve a
settlement under Bankruptcy Rule 9019(a). See TMT Trailer, 390 U.S. at 424; Continental

Airlines, Inc. v. Airline Pilots Assn Intl. (In re Continental Airlines, Inc.), 907 F.2d 1500, 1508
(5th Cir. 1990). After notice and hearing, a trustee or debtor may compromise or settle claims in
the administration of the estate with the approval of the Court. See FED. R. BANKR. P. 9019(a).
Whether to approve a compromise is a matter within the sound discretion of the Court. See In re
Aweco, Inc., 725 F.2d 293, 29798 (5th Cir. 1984). The Court should approve a settlement
agreement if the settlement is fair and equitable and in the best interest of the estate. Rivercity
v. Herpel (In re Jackson Brewing Co.), 624 F.2d 599, 602 (5th Cir. 1980).
16.

The terms fair and equitable mean that: (i) senior interests are entitled to full

priority over junior interests; and (ii) the compromise is reasonable in relation to the likely
rewards of litigation. In re Cajun Electric Power Coop., 119 F.3d 349, 355 (5th Cir. 1997); In
re Jackson Brewing Co., 624 F.2d at 602. In determining whether a proposed compromise is fair
and equitable, a Court should consider the following factors:
a.

the probabilities of ultimate success should the claim be litigated;

b.

the complexity, expense, and likely duration of litigating the claim;

c.

the difficulties of collecting a judgment rendered from such litigation; and

d.

all other factors relevant to a full and fair assessment of the wisdom of the
compromise.

TMT Trailer, 390 U.S. at 424.


Analysis of Proposed Settlement
17.

In the instant case, the Trustee believes that the proposed compromise satisfies the

requirements established by the Supreme Court in TMT Trailer, and as further elaborated by the
Fifth Circuit.

See 471 F.2d at 10.

The Trustee believes that a prompt resolution of the

Enforcement Action is in the best interests of not only the Debtors bankruptcy estate, but also
the creditors in this case because it will result in a decrease of the Debtors financial obligations.

The reduced costs and certainty associated with the proposed Settlement Agreement provide
benefits to the estate, including all unsecured creditors.
18.

Moreover, the Parties agree that the Civil Penalties Amount and the Civil

Penalties Attorneys Fees allocated thereto shall be treated in the Bankruptcy Case pursuant to 11
U.S.C. 726(a)(4), thereby ensuring that those respective amounts under the Texas Proof Claim
will not impact distribution to any secured, priority or unsecured creditor in this case.
Additionally, the Restitution Amount under the Settlement Agreement represents a significant
decrease of the estates potential liability for sales of the 2nd Generation Panels. Furthermore,
the Settlement Agreement provides for affirmative notice to be provided to all purchasers of the
2nd Generation Panels. As a result, the Settlement Agreement has a public health and safety
component due to the risk of fire associated with the continued use of the uncertified 2nd
Generation Panels.
19.

Probabilities of Ultimate Success. Given that the Restitution Amount in the

Settlement Agreement is approximately $3,245,677.02 less than the amount initially sought and
the uncertainties attendant to litigating the matter, including risks of delay and exposure to
additional attorneys fees, the Settlement Agreement represents an acceptable and preferred
compromise for the Debtor. In the event the Enforcement Action was litigated, the Parties
anticipate that the Debtors liability could far exceed amounts under the Settlement Agreement.
20.

Complexity, Expense, and Likely Duration. Without the Settlement Agreement,

the Parties could potentially spend a considerable amount of time litigating their respective
claims and defenses arising from the Enforcement Action in connection with the Debtors
liability. The Trustee believes that the costs of such litigation weigh strongly in favor of
settlement.

Difficulty in Collecting Judgment. The Trustee believes this factor is inapplicable

and, as a result, it has not been considered by this analysis.


22.

Other Factors. The Trustee believes that the proposed compromise is equitable

and in the best interests of the estate because it will not impact any distribution to secured or
priority creditors in this case. Further, the Restitution Amount under the proposed settlement
reduces a sizeable claim which could impact any distribution to unsecured creditors. Moreover,
the civil penalties and attorneys fees will not impact any distribution to any secured, priority or
unsecured creditor in this case. Additionally, the proposed compromise allows for liquidation of
the State of Texas Proof of Claim with certainty, and will further the prompt administration of
the estate by providing notice of the bankruptcy case to purchasers of the uncertified 2nd
Generation Panels. Accordingly, the proposed compromise achieves a result consistent with the
dictates of the Bankruptcy Code and is in the best interests of the bankruptcy estate.
23.

The Trustee submits that this proposed settlement is the product of an arms-length

bargain.

Pursuant to Local Bankruptcy Rule 9019, the Trustees affidavit in support of the

settlement is attached to this Motion to Approve Settlement as Exhibit B.

PRAYER

WHEREFORE, the Mark A. Weisbart, Trustee, respectfully requests that the Court: (i)
grant the Motion to Approve Settlement; (ii) approve the settlement and authorize him to take
such actions deemed necessary and appropriate to enter and consummate the settlement; (iii)

STATE OF TEXAS

COUNTY OF DALLAS

Mark A. Weisbart, Chapter 7 Trustee of the bankruptcy estate of 1 SoITech, Inc., being
duly sworn, deposes and says as follows:

1.

"My name is Mark A. Weisbart. I have personal knowledge of the facts stated

herein and they are true and correct. 1 am over the age of twenty-one (21) years, and 1 have
never been charged with or convicted of a felony or crime of moral turpitude, and 1 am in all

2.

On April 29, 2015,1 was appointed Chapter 7 Trustee of the bankruptcy estate of

1 SoITech, Inc. 1 submit this affidavit pursuant to Local Bankruptcy Rule 9019 in support of the

Motion to Approve Settlement Pursuant to Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 9019 (the

"Motion to Approve Settlement").'


3.

1 recommend the Court's approval of the Motion to Approve Settlement, and

believe the terms described in the Motion satisfy the requirements for approval of compromises

F.2d 1500, 1508 (5th Cir. 1990).

4.

More specifically, I believe the proposed settlement satisfies the foregoing

standard for approval of a settlement as follows:


5.

Probability of Ultimate Success.

Given that the Restitution Amount in the

Settlement Agreement is approximately $3,245,677.02 less than the amount initially sought and
the uncertainties attendant to litigating the matter, including risks of delay and exposure to

additional attorneys' fees, the Settlement Agreement represents an acceptable and preferred
compromise for the bankruptcy estate. In the event the Enforcement Action was litigated, I
anticipate that the bankruptcy estates' liability could far exceed amounts under the Settlement
Agreement.

6.

Complexity. Expense, and Likely Duration.

The Enforcement Action involves

complex claims under the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act.

Without the Settlement

Agreement, I believe the Parties could potentially spend a considerable amount of time litigating
their respective claims and defenses arising from the Enforcement Action in connection with the
Debtor's liability. I believe that the costs of such litigation weigh strongly in favor of settlement.
7.

Difficulty in Collectins Judement. I believe this factor is inapplicable and, as a

result, it has not been considered by this analysis.


8.

Other Factors. I believe that the proposed compromise is equitable and in the

best interests of the bankruptcy estate because it will not impact any distribution to secured or

priority creditors in this case. Further, the Restitution Amount under the proposed settlement

Exhibit "B"

reduces a sizeable claim which could impact any distribution to unsecured creditors. Moreover,

the civil penalties and attorneys' fees will not impact any distribution to any secured, priority or
unsecured creditor in this case.

Additionally, I believe the proposed compromise allows for

liquidation of the State of Texas' Proof of Claim with certainty, and will further the prompt
administration of the estate by providing notice of the bankruptcy case to purchasers of the
uncertified 2nd Generation Panels.

9.

In light of the foregoing, I believe that the proposed compromise achieves a result

consistent with the dictates of the Bankruptcy Code and is in the best interests of the bankruptcy
estate.

10.

The foregoing constitutes my statement pursuant to Local Bankruptcy Rule 9019.
