The motion further explains, “Fairness, the Bankruptcy Code, and binding precedent all dictate that someone must speak on behalf of the unknown and Unmanifested Claimants. Charlotte and Curtis Liberda and the thousands of other Unmanifested Claimants are entitled to a voice in these proceedings; they are entitled to a legal representative.”
