According to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court docket, Cal Dive International filed a motion seeking a Court order authorizing Quinn Hebert to act as foreign representative, pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Sections 1505. The motion explains, “Cal Dive International respectfully request entry of an order authorizing Quinn Hebert, in his capacity as CEO and member of the board of Cal Dive Offshore Contractors (‘CDOCI’), to act as the foreign representative of CDOCI’s estate (the ‘Foreign Representative’) in any judicial or other proceeding in Mexico….Only the Cal Dive Group’s U.S.-based entities are Debtors in these cases. The foreign members of the Cal Dive Group, including operating companies in Mexico, Australia, the United Kingdom, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore, have not filed chapter 11 petitions or foreign insolvency proceedings and continue to conduct their businesses in the ordinary course.”
The motion continues, “The Debtors further request that, as Foreign Representative, Mr. Quinn be expressly authorized to (i) seek recognition of CDOCI’s chapter 11 case in any Mexican proceeding, (ii) request that the Mexican courts lend assistance to this Court in protecting the property of CDOCI’s estate, and (iii) seek any other appropriate relief from the Mexican court that he deems just and proper in furtherance of the protection of the CDOCI’s estate.” The Court subsequently approved the motion.
